Barrel-Aged Pastry Stout - Apple Cinnamon StrudelBarrel-Aged Pastry Stout - Apple Cinnamon Strudel
Notes: Wake up your senses with warm toasted strudel as it greets bourbon barrel-forward and cinnamon-spiced apple flavors, grounded in the creaminess of a latte. Arouse your senses in hygge, a state of coziness and contentment you'll discover from first to the last sip.

Pours dark black, with little carbonation. The thin head disappears almost immediately. Very black; no light is allowed to get through this. Aroma is heavily apple with a strudel smell. Taste is boozy first, followed by cinnamon and apple. Flatness of the brew holds this back a bit. Heavily sweet, with a honey overtone and a creamy texture. Chocolate is present, though underneath the other profiles.

16oz. can into a Founders snifter. Shared with schen9303.

Pours pitch black. Huge, oily legs. No head, no lace. Nose is apple cinnamon, chocolate, molasses, sweet cream, and booze. Somehow appetizing. Aromatic and boozy and somehow there's even notes of flaky crust. Beer opens chocolate, apple cinnamon, and brown sugar. Maple syrup, more chocolate, and vanilla in the middle. Sweet cream, booze, and more molasses and syrup at the finish. Pretty good. Body is full with low carbonation. Boozy, full, and chewy on the palate and goes down rich and thick with a sticky, lingering aftertaste.

I don't normally like pastry stouts but this one's quite good. Worth trying,
