The Veil Brewing Company Apple Brandy Pallbearer
What the brewers say
"Imperial Stout Aged in Laird's apple brandy barrels for 21 months."
What our panel thought
“Earthy yet sweet aroma with vanilla, dark chocolate, caramel, dried fruit, and boozy black tea. In the flavor, crème brûlée, cinnamon, marshmallows, espresso and brandy, balanced by roast, pleasant warmth, subtle oak.”
What our editors thought
“A layered story of intention and excess. The sip pushes cherry and plum notes; sweetness and body amplify the fruit, but smooth dark malt provides a rich counterpoint.”
