Pontoon Brewing Company Barrel Aged German Chocolate Cake
What the brewers say
"Barrel-Aged imperial stout with coconut, chocolate, pecans, vanilla and lactose."
What our panel thought
“Complex aroma: dark-chocolate cake, pecans, coconut, vanilla, and cookies. Tastes like a decadent chocolate-vanilla pastry, with blackstrap molasses-laced graham crackers. Finishes very sweet.”
What our editors thought
“Thoroughly dessert, with big coconut-latte notes on the nose and pitched sweetness in the flavor. But it never feels cheap, layering Nutella, Toblerone, and Mounds bar over a strong, smooth espresso base.”
