Year of New Beer: 6th Anniversary Hazelnut Chocolate Imperial Stout, Westbrook Brewing (SC)

Written By: Dion on 03/02/2017

Chocolate malt, coffee, and a light roasted nut on the nose. The tongue features an earthy bitterness with a touch of cocoa and hazelnut. Only traces of vanilla and a touch lighter body than I was expecting. Westbrook has done a masterful job of building their brand, and they make some delicious beers, but...there are better beers being made locally and regionally and I am gradually shifting my purchasing power to them.
