North Park Beer Co. Maple Barrel-Aged Brunch Before Dying
What the brewers say
"Dessert stout aged in Maple Rye and Maple Bourbon barrels for 22 months with candy cap mushrooms, bourbon barrel-aged maple syrup and Vanuatu vanilla beans."
What our panel thought
“Big cold-brew-coffee nose, with medium-high roast, light chocolate, and maple hints. Flavor adds intense chocolate to slight maple and smoky coffee, and later takes over the finish.”
What our editors thought
“Herbal coffee nose with tight almond and light maple notes, riding into a punchy chocolate-licorice body. Expressive maple unfolds as it warms. Big, but never excessive.”
