What the brewers say

“Blend of apple brandy barrel-aged imperial stout and bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout.”

What our panel thought

“Nose is sweet and spirit with overripe plums, molasses, whiskey. Whiskey is more prominent in the flavor with molasses, treacle, black cherry, plum layered on top of sweet chocolate and coffee. Sweet whiskey-like chocolate and black cherry keep coming in waves.”

What our editors thought

“Leathery nose with a touch of red fruit and some higher-key coconut. The sip pulls more toasted coconut sweetness. Syrupy with a heated finish.”
