Brewer: Liquid Hero Craft: Vanilla Bean Stout ABV: 5.8%
Drink one. What a great name for a brewery. Liquid Hero.
The craft of choice tonight is the Vanilla Bean Stout. I consider myself a dark beer guy. Stouts and porters are my comfort beers. They are the ones that I go back to when I’m ready to relax and call it a night. And now I can add this craft to the list of go to stouts.
The aroma is rich and full of vanilla, caramel, and coffee notes. And since I’m a stout guy, I can say that, in that genre, I prefer a good vanilla stout over any other. This craft does not disappoint. It is ultra smooth and it’s not even a nitro craft. The vanilla notes are omnipresent, and thank God for that. A vanilla bean stout should be a vanilla bean stout. The caramel notes also raise their hand when attendance is taken, along with some subtle chocolate and coffee notes.
This is a rich, smooth, intensely vanilla stout that I could certainly drink over and over again. But I wouldn’t go as far as buying a case. For me, it is one of those crafts that I want to remain what it is – an experience in drinking. I want to fuss over those flavors and notes every time. Cheers!
