Luxuriously rich bourbon-barreled Russian Imperial Stout gives desirable coffee-beaned vanilla adjunct a fudgy dark chocolate creaminess underscored by oaken hop-charred nuttiness. Caramel-burnt bourbon sweetness escalates marvelous mocha chewiness, allowing coconut, marshmallow, anise, black cherry and blackberry illusions to enter the decadent full-bodied fray.
“Hauntingly good” oak-aged stout with abounding complexities. Aggressive bourbon sweetness gains immediate brown-sugared molasses sapping and caramelized chocolate-coffee conflux contrasted by sedate wood-seared hop char. Below the bustling mocha-bourbon mudcake surface, dried-fruited date, fig and plum illusions as well as distant hazelnut-coconut snips hide out. A decadent first-class slow sipper.
