Year of New Beer: Vanilla Bean Stout, Central Waters Brewing (WI)
Written By: Dion on 07/31/2018
Bourbon leaps from the bottle, balanced nicely by bittersweet chocolate, roasted malts, and a subtle vanilla cream. On the tongue, bourbon again muscles forward before allowing a light char and espresso to sneak in. Hints of oak and marshmallow alongside a very restrained vanilla as the glass warms. Drinks a little boozy for only 9.5%, but settles down a bit towards the end. This is very good, and certainly worth trying if the opportunity presents.
