Westbound & Down Brewing Company Single Barrel Select: Heaven Hill Double Absence
What the brewers say
"Double mash Imperial Stout aged 11 months in a single Heaven Hill Rye barrel."
What our panel thought
“Alcohol and dark-roast cold-brew coffee dominate the aroma, with chocolate and mellow vanilla beneath. Coffee highlights the flavor, with bittersweet chocolate, brown sugar, dates, dark caramel. Intriguing port-like complexity.”
What our editors thought
“Light oak and subtle nutty notes on the nose. The sip pushes midtone caramel malt with just a hint of lower roast. Subtle and sophisticated, but unassuming.”
