What the brewers say

"Imperial Oatmeal Stout aged 19 months in a Heaven Hill Rye barrel + Double Absence aged 9 months in a Heaven Hill Rye barrel with Madagascar Vanilla Beans + Finished on Ugandan Vanilla Beans & Macadamia Nuts = Beyond Opulence."

What our panel thought

“Marshmallow nose with deep vanilla and dark chocolate in the background. On the tongue, a hunk of chocolate flavors followed by sweet, creamy vanilla. Dark chocolate and light earthy tobacco play nicely.”

What our editors thought

“Fragrant French-pastry vanilla in the nose, finely layered. The flavor brings a healthy dark-malt kick buffered by the sweeter caramel midtones, wrapped up in luxurious vanilla.”
