What the brewers say

“Take in the aroma of expertly roasted espresso from Jittery Joe’s and let your taste buds melt into the flavor of Olive and Sinclair’s award-winning chocolate. Brewed with lactose sugar for a creamy mouthfeel and a touch of sweetness.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Light-colored caramel malt, full-force chocolate, and dark-roast coffee with hints of Kahlua, sweet maple syrup, and hints of vanilla.”

Flavor: “Lots of chocolate and roast—tiramisu, espresso, roast malt, dark chocolate, chocolate syrup, and just a hint of coffee. Some vanilla, maple, and dark stone fruits as well. It’s fairly easy drinking for 8 percent. The carbonation dances on the tongue and may be slightly overdone, but the bitterness and sweetness balance with the touch of alcohol. It’s a drier finish than expected.”

Overall: “The chocolate dominates, but the sweetness doesn’t end up being cloying. The vanilla blends well with the base beer, yielding an easily drinkable stout without any rough edges. This is like I just tossed back a sip of brandy and now I’m eating a piece of decadent tiramisu—sweet, rich, and luxurious.”
