Mother’s Brewing Native Oak Version 2
What the brewers say
A blend of four imperial stouts selected from our favorite barrels.
What our panel thought
Whiskey up front with pleasant date and raisin notes at the forefront. Layers of vanilla, barrel-spirit charac-ter, dark fruits, anise, and light chocolate wrap into a cohesive package of flavors. Well-balanced, with a touch of heat at the finish.
What our editors thought
Rich umami with a soy angle and a touch of orange citrus zest on the nose. The flavor is intensely rich and layered, like a smoky jazz club deep in the morning hours—a heady mix of bourbon, char, and deep, confident cool.
