Pinthouse Pizza The Big Lebarrelski (2019)
What the brewers say
The Dude conditioned with Tweed Coffee’s Foxtrot blend and aged in Wild Turkey bourbon barrels.
What our panel thought
Chocolate, woody aroma. Hint of alcohol. Solid flavor punch of coffee and dark chocolate. Sweetness holds you back from the brink of roasty oblivion. Not much complexity, but smooth with low alcohol expression.
What our editors thought
Strong and sharp coffee roast rules the nose with faint hints of coconut and vanilla. The sip evokes more chocolate—sweet milk as well as dark—with that strong coffee roast backbone that tempers the sweetness. A touch young and simple, but enjoyable nonetheless.
