Phase Three Brewing Blend: 2022
What the brewers say
“A blend of Arabesque and Imperial Porter base aged in bourbon casks, finished in a Cognac cask.
What our panel thought
“Nose of chocolate, plums, and vanilla is supported by sweet bourbon-like notes. Flavor is rich caramel, dark fruit, vanilla, light woodiness.”
What our editors thought
“Boozy chocolate liqueur and a bit of stroop waffle sweet caramel in the nose. The sip is drier than expected, with punchy endearing caramel chocolate notes. Feels concise.”
