Highland Brewing Southern Nouveau Cafe au Lait
What the brewers say
"Barrel-aged imperial breakfast stout with coffee, maple syrup, vanilla, cacao nibs, and lactose."
What our panel thought
"Coffee, maple, and chocolate aroma. The sip brings maple-caramel sweetness, roast coffee, and light cinnnamon-spice bitterness; a charred note and warmth round out the sweet, coffee-led finish."
What our editors thought
"Smooth chicory-coffee nose; a bit of vanilla-barrel sweetness. The sip offers smooth, creamy dark chocolate, light coffee, and an airy but defined sweet lightness."
