What the brewers say

“A Knob Creek barrel-aged imperial stout with toasted coconut and Indonesian vanilla.”

What our panel thought

“Dark chocolate, coconut, coffee, milk, vanilla greet the nose. A kick of bourbon heat starts off the flavor—a complex dance of dark malt, vanilla, coconut mellowed by a sweetness tempered by a bitter backbone.”

What our editors thought

“Strong bourbon and a flaky croissant element punch up the vanilla and coconut in the aroma. The flavors lose some definition on the palate, spreading into a thin chocolate ganache with sweet coconut highlights.”
