What the brewers say

“Blend of 1-, 2-, and 3-year-old barrel-aged imperial stout.”

What our panel thought

“On the nose, toffee, toast, a nuttiness, light whiskey, black treacle, roasted sweet chocolate. In the flavor, sweet chocolate, dark cherry, molasses, a hint of smoky, a long, sweet treacle finish.”

What our editors thought

“Deep roast and punchy vinous notes on the nose with a bit of caramel and bourbon. The flavor hovers in that deep space below the caramel waves but never drops into the truly bitter depths. Smooth and cohesive, designed to sip and savor.”
