What the brewers say

“Barrel-aged imperial stout with Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans, Ghanaian cocoa nibs, toasted coconut.”

What our panel thought

“Aroma: Milk Duds! Plus brown sugar, molasses, plums, a hint of cinnamon; the barrel adds a spicy whiskey/rum balance. Flavor follows suit: milk chocolate, chewy caramel, brown sugar, molasses, treacle. Again, the barrel balances what could be too sweet.”

What our editors thought

“Tight bourbon notes with caramel, cinnamon, marshmallow, chocolate in the nose. Smoothly sweet sip as vanilla pushes through, and heftier ethanol notes increase the sizzle. Sweet, syrupy, rewarding.”
