What the brewers say

“Notes of Nilla Wafers, melted caramel, fresh chocolate-chip cookies, oak, hints of cinnamon pecans.”

What our panel thought

“Caramel, vanilla, coconut, milk-chocolate notes in the nose blend beautifully with some nice roast and coffee notes. Despite the impression of sweetness in the aroma, the barrel’s roast character and a light spirit note perfectly temper things and create a beer that is both roasty and sweet with a wonderful balance.”

What our editors thought

“Syrupy thick body. Deep roasted malt, burnt bread crust, anise, charred oak in the aroma with faint caramel. Midtone chocolate and caramel notes push forward deep roast notes in the sip, softening the deep bitter notes with a smooth but low-key sweetness and body that feels luxurious yet trim.”
