Year of New Beer: Coco Van, Hubbard's Cave Brewery (IL)

Written By: Dion on 08/29/2018

Decadent nose of milk chocolate, dark fruit, vanilla, and subtle coconut (which increases with warmth). On the tongue, this is a big, boozy, sweet beer. Roasted malts, a touch of soy, molasses, and creamy vanilla wrap the taste buds in a viscous assault on the senses. Toasted coconut is light but perceptible with warmth. A slight char and bitter dark chocolate join a solid vanilla kick on the finish. This is truly dessert in a glass. Wish I had saved it to share, because I may have diabetes now. Delicious nonetheless.
