Tonight’s beer is a Vanilla Latte Stout – vanilla, coffee, and lactose sounds like a winner to me!
The coffee is definitely there on the nose, and a little chocolate too. The vanilla is there, but it’s a bit subtle on first sniff. The flavour is pretty much exactly what I expected with this name – it pretty much tastes like a vanilla latte the way I like it, with a bit of extra espresso kick. The head formation and retention is great, and the carbonation is spot-on. Like any good stout (in my opinion), the colour is dark black and pretty much opaque.
