Seventh Son Brewing Murmuration

What the brewers say

"Showcase[s] beer aged in spirit barrels, including bourbon, rum, rye, and others."

What our panel thought

"Aroma more like barleywine—big barrel, vanilla, caramel malt, booze, a bit of chocolate. Umami hints. In flavor, sweet caramel fades through prune and coffee liqueur notes. Low bitterness. Warming alcohol and barrel-spice. Finish doesn’t cloy. Boozy, rich, complex without being a punch in the mouth."

What our editors thought

"Dark, roasty nose with anise and holiday spice. On the sip, holiday fruitcake—dark cherry and raisin braced by spice—and a warming, familiar, just-sweet-enough body. Endearing and rich."
