— ZACH JOHNSTON AND CHRISTOPHER OSBURN FROM UPROXX
We do drink a lot of beer around these parts. And while there’s no chance we got all of the best beers of the year, we have faith we nailed some of them.
“This limited-release stout from the folks at Firestone Walker is indulgent, sweet, rich, and somehow not too high in alcohol. While we’ll rarely turn down a barrel-aged stout, we don’t need to drink four 12 percent ABV beers. This stout was brewed with cherries and cocoa nibs to give it a unique, sweet, and malty flavor perfect for wintertime.”
“You might be concerned that a cherry and chocolate stout would be a little… overpowering. Well, the sweet cherry flavor is subtle and pleasing and it melds perfectly with the rich dark chocolate and roasted malt flavors.”
