What the brewers say

“Big, boozy bourbon and American oak aromas with soft chocolate malt undertones.”

What our panel thought

“A bourbon alcohol note on the aroma complements the dried-fruit, caramel, vanilla, and leather. Brown sugar, caramel, vanilla, and crystal malt–like notes are complemented by pleasant oak-forward flavors and subtle layered dried-fruit esters.”

What our editors thought

“Conservatively caramel and light barrel nose with coconut and vanilla notes. The sip sheds the weight carried by other sugar bombs in the category and offers up a gorgeously toned and lithe body. Finishes with a domineering grin.”
