Belching Beaver Brewery Horchata Imperial Stout
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Belching Beaver Brewery Horchata Imperial Stout. I picked this bottle up at The Wine Club in San Jose (here). They have a small craft beer section, but they have an incredible selection. If you're anywhere near The Wine Club go visit them and tell 'em Mark from NorCal Beer Blog sent you!
From the Belching Beaver Brewery website: “A salute to our south of the border brothers brewing great beer! An imperial stout brewed with vanilla, cinnamon and rice malt with a creamy medium body. It’s a real treat and dessert in a glass!”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours black with a dense tan head and great lacing.
Aroma: Cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, chocolate, coconut and some coffee notes.
Taste: Lactose, cinnamon, chocolate, toasted coconut, vanilla and some coffee.
Overall: They hit the nail on the head…an Imperial Stout that’s got the scents and flavors of Horchata. Belching Beaver Brewery Horchata Imperial Stout is sweet, medium-bodied and delicious. This 9% ABV offering is worth a try for fans of Imperial Stouts with a twist.
