Melvin Brewing Eureka (House of Flying Barrels) Night Visions - Vanilla Latte
What the brewers say
"Imperial Stout brewed with lactose sugar and aged on Ugandan Vanilla beans and SUMP coffee."
What our panel thought
“Big dark-roast coffee aroma up front. Fairly subtle vanilla plays up the latte character. Roast and chocolate character in the flavor works well with the coffee. The beer is on and off your tongue surprisingly fast, with only a touch of coffee lingering.”
What our editors thought
“Huge coffee notes in the nose with a polished woody smooth edge. The sip is sweeter, trading away some of the expected roast bitterness for a general coffee-ness, and a round body that feels imprecise despite the sharp flavor components.”
