Urban Roots Brewing & Smokehouse Demons Run Coconut Vanilla

What the brewers say

“Bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout with coconut and vanilla beans added.”

What our panel thought

“Notes of coconut in the aroma are balanced by hints of cinnamon, chocolate, coffee. The coconut dominates the flavor (with hints of roast marshmallow, chocolate) but an earthy coconut-water element supports the sweeter coconut-flesh notes. Booziness strips away some of the nuance.”

What our editors thought

“Chocolate suntan lotion vibes in the nose continue in the sip. The bourbon barrel here pushes a medicinal edge that sharpens the vanilla and coconut.”
