What the brewers say

“A blend of a stout aged in a tawny port barrel and a steel-aged barleywine.”

What our panel thought

“Boozy, coffee-chocolate nose. Vanilla, leather, licorice on the tongue. Light raisin and prune. Rich and chewy body. Rich and complex, but with relatively restrained sweetness. Lush and chewy mouthfeel, pleasant heat.”

What our editors thought

“Big dark malt notes with chewy leather and molasses in the nose. Drier than expected in the sip, with chocolate-caramel notes and a touch of fruity fermentation highlights layered on top.”
