Toppling Goliath Brewing Co Shadow Raptor

What the brewers say

"Shadow Raptor reveals the intricate nuances of vanilla selected from around the world. Layered delicately so as to still allow the influence of the barrels to emerge in your glass. We get notes of vanilla waffle cone ice cream, dark chocolate, and a whisper of bourbon in the finish."

What our panel thought

“Cocoa-forward flavor with robust chocolate and caramel, on a big bourbon vanilla nose. Tips toward sweetness, but not cloying or overpowering.”

What our editors thought

“Rich vanilla aroma with bourbon depth. In the sip, vanilla oscillates between spicy and sweet. Bourbon bite mellows into softer chocolate cake with vanilla icing. Never drops too deep on the roast. Alluring heft.”
