    Deep brown pour with a slight amber hue and a frothy white head. Striking aromas of candied sugar, oak, and vanilla. Thick mouthfeel helped out with strong carbonation. It's a sipper at 13 percent but the alcohol is hidden well. Wonderful flavors of candied yams, vanilla, and oaky bourbon. I'm not the biggest fan of the base beer, but the barrel really adds complexity and this one is a winner. It's not a sugar bomb like so many other high gravity bruery beers.

    One of the prettiest imperial stouts to behold in a glass. Opaque black with a deep brown head that tinges red. Absolutely beautiful. Deep roasted malt on the nose with hints of anise and cherry. Rich and thick mouthfeel while exceptionally smooth, quite drinkable for a strong stout. Notes of licorice, cherry, and figs with a strong roasty backbone. I could drink this one all winter. Loved it.

    Received as part of a rather large bottle swap. Love me some VT brews. Orange pour with sharp carbonation and a sticky head tat laces beautifully. Strong pine forward aromas with citrus notes. This one has quite a long finish - definitely more west coast slanted, tons of simcoe as pine and grapefruit dominate. I don't notice a ton of tropical notes. It's executed well, but overrated.

    Wow. Orange hued with tons of carbonation. Zesty aromas of lemon and citrus with a musty undertone contributed to the apricots. Velvety texture with high acidity yet easily drinkable. Massively tart flavors - lemon and tangerine with a strong apricot finish. One of the finer lambics.

    750 ml growler poured into two snifters. Straw yellow appearance with a sharp burst of carbonation. Deep tropical aromas - pineapple and tangerine. Dangerously quaffable with notes of mangoes, pineapple, and orange zest balanced with a biscuity backbone. A wonderful showcase of citra.
