Year of New Beer: Hunter Vanilla, 18th Street Brewery (IN)

Written By: Dion on 07/03/2018

I've seen this beer multiple times when traveling, but just never picked it up. But now that it's being distributed in KY, I finally decided to give it a try. The nose is cocoa powder, roasted malt, and light vanilla with marshmallow. The nose transitions well to the tongue with rich, roasted malts being softened a bit by a sweet lactose and milk chocolate presence. Vanilla is subtle, but it does linger through the finish. Maybe a bit thin, but pretty solid nonetheless.
