North Park Beer Co. Mostra Before Dying
What the brewers say
"Bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout conditioned on toasted coconut, shredded coconut, Veracruz Mexican vanilla beans, and a proprietary blend of Mostra Coffee's Ethiopian Anaerobic Honey Coffee and Ghost Bear Espresso Blend Coffee."
What our panel thought
“Milky Way chocolate–caramel aroma with sweet, bitter coffee. The sip evokes Almond Joy—velvety coconut, subtle vanilla, layered chocolate. Viscosity really pushes the boundaries of thick. Plenty of alcohol but soft in nature.”
What our editors thought
“Light coffee and Nestlé Crunch nose. In the sip, heavily extracted coconut dominates with big ethanol edge. Slight vegetal note after the swallow.”
