pFriem Family Brewers Rum Barrel Aged Porter
What the brewers say
"We age our Imperial Porter for a year in barrels kissed by the Caribbean, giving pFriem’s Rum Barrel Aged Porter notes of chocolate truffles, ripe cherries and vanilla beans. Drink in this captivating brew and taste luscious decadence."
What our panel thought
“Light alcohol, smoke, and pepper-like spice waft out of a roast-malt-forward aroma. Sweet notes of caramel, chocolate, and vanilla transition to a roasty bitterness, with hints of pepper on the finish.”
What our editors thought
“Slightly dulled chocolate nose, knocked down with time and age. The sip is similarly muted, with light chocolate cola and slight herbal bent. The reductive nature is difficult to dislike, but also lacks a certain spark.”
