About This Beer
The GABF-winning brewers at AleSmith matured a dark and toasty Imperial Stout base in bourbon and brandy barrels, conditioning it with Vietnamese coffee and vanilla.
Each mouthful is like a roasty brownie threaded through with ribbons of vanilla and coffee. Barrel notes complement its mocha tones with a dash of booziness, oaky tannins, and the lightest whisper of char. Fruity hints of cherry and plum come through from the brandy, lasting well into the chocolatey finish.
