Cerebral Brewing Sugar Pie
What the brewers say
Aged in maple syrup bourbon barrels with pecans, cinnamon, vanilla.
What our panel thought
Thick vanilla, cinnamon, and bourbon on the nose. The thickness continues with a gooey body. The pecan nut-tiness stands out to bring the sweetness up even more as it backs up the vanilla.
What our editors thought
Sweet overwhelms spicy on the nose, amplified by cocoa, vanilla, maple syrup, and a vein of cinnamon run-ning through. The sip is similarly sweet, with a broad and loose maple syrup-meets-vanilla and a hint of roast and cinnamon. It's a bit too cloying to be truly great but remains an enjoyable dessert beer.
