Goodwood 5 year old Stout Barrel Finished, 45%

Price: $85 Issue: Fall 2021 Reviewer: Ted Simmons

An earthy nose of burnt marshmallows, clay, tree bark, and birch beer along with nutmeg, cinnamon, and other baking spices. The palate is hoppy, with licorice, zesty citrus, vanilla cream, and dark chocolate. A bready finish shows notes of allspice and ginger, as well as fudge brownie and peanut butter cookie. The finishing cask does the bulk of the talking here, with creamy dark chocolate notes throughout.
