Brink Brewing Co. Street Corner Thieves

What the brewers say

Blended stout loaded with raspberry and vanilla in bourbon barrels.

What our panel thought

Strawberry, blackberry, and raspberry notes with hints of vanilla and chocolate create a sense of chocolate-covered candied fruits. The richness and decadence the aroma promises falls flat in flavor as the raspberry tartness cuts through any potential sweetness and body and creates a perception of dryness and thinness.

What our editors thought

Compelling berry chocolate vanilla nose is richly natural in its expression. On the sip, those berry notes push too far forward, offering an acidic fruity note that slightly overpowers the roast and barrel.
