BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Elevation Beer Co.
Colorado, United States
elevationbeerco.com

Style: Herbed / Spiced Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer pours a deep dark brown with a snow-white head. Aroma notes of Vanilla, Cinnamon and sweet milk hit the nose bringing up images of the delicious Mexican drink this beer is styled after. The beer hits the palate with Vanilla, sweet chocolate malts, and a hint of cinnamon; all with a medium body and a balancing hop bitterness. Enjoy this beer next to a roaring fire with your amigos in a cozy cabin after a long day of skiing the deep powder of the Rocky Mountains.

This beer fits better into the Herb/Spiced Beer Category, as it is spiced with a ton of Cinnamon and Vanilla and also uses milk sugar. It recently took home a medal in this category and we believe it is a more accurate description then an Imperial porter.

Thanks and Cheers.

The Elevation Team.

Dark brown color, light brown head.

Smell: malty, hoppy. Nuthin special, nuthin bad.

Taste: Kinda average - surprising - none of the random add-in ingredients yells too loudly. Malty, but not intensely so; a hint of sweetness, but not off-putting.

Other reviewers note the sweetness more - maybe I got an older bottle?

Not a big fan of the mouthfeel on this one - overcarbonated, and bubbles are coarse. In terms of weight: moderate. Surprising that this is 8.2% ABV - it's well hidden.

Overall: a bit of funkiness on the finish.

OK, fine with food, happy to drink it if someone gave it to me at their house, not a great beer, don't buy again. Unimpressive.

Excellent Flavor. The horchata is in the background, not overpowering. Goes down smooth and makes you feel great. Snow white head very dark brown. Smells of sweet bread with cinnamon and milk.
