Notes/Commercial Description:
Here is a father’s toast to his son. Brewed with cocoa nibs and lactose, Hunter boasts a creamy texture and rich chocolate flavor. Vanilla, roast, and caramel sweetness are met with a bright hop bitterness.

4.21/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Black with a thin layer of tan mocha foam on the surface. A little bit of wispy skim and lace present.

Creamy feel with some light acidity from the roast malt. Residual ashy char, green hops buried underneath. Smells very malty and roasty, a little bit of coffee and blackened malt. Dry finish with a light bitterness. Very smooth any creamy from the lactose, though the acidity trips it up slightly. Slightly sticky on the lips though not overtly sweet, well balanced with the bitter roast. Overall a nice milk stout from 18th Street, worth trying.

4.41/5  rDev +4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - The beer was black with a black color with murky brown highlights. Some bubbles clung to the sides of the glass.

Smell - A big coffee whiff comes through in the aroma.

Taste - Big coffee and chocolate come through in the initial taste. The coffee notes are creamy, but not as creamy as I would expect from a milk stout. As a whole, the beer is only modestly sweet. The modest sweetness finishes in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - The maltiness really sticks to the inside of the cheeks and tongue. It is smooth and creamy as a milk stout should be.

Overall - I like this one a lot. I can't wait for more Hunter variants!
