Single Hill Brewing Company Reserve - Osa Major
What the brewers say
"This imperial stout was aged in Westland American Single Malt Whiskey barrels, imparting stellar notes of dark roast coffee, sweet vanilla, and cocoa powder."
What our panel thought
“Alcoholic heat in the nose obscures hints of roasted malt, chocolate, and caramel. Booze carries into the flavor, stripping away more subtle complexities. Roasty, smoky, with pleasantly malty profile.”
What our editors thought
“Herbal hop nose with solvent notes. Flavor sits in a strange middle ground between citrus-pine hops and dry cocoa powder. Finishes with a dry austerity.”
