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.

This was an excellent beer. Not your typical vanilla porter - the cinnamon really adds a great flavor to it. Obviously it pairs well with Mexican food, but it's really good just on its own as well. Seek this one out if you want a little something different. I'll look for this one again for sure.

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.

Poured into a Teku glass from a 750mL bottle.

It's got a pitch-black body and a dark-khaki with cream-colored head that is frothy and two fingers thick. 4.25

This aroma reminds me of a Yoo-hoo. It's chocolatey, milk-like and has a big dose of vanilla. There's some oak and barrel aroma and maybe even some sweet caramel. 4.5

Continued heavy oak and vanilla, the chocolate is subtler but now there's a cinnamon dose that adds another element to this brew. 4.5

It's creamy, smooth and a little lighter in body than I'd expect, but I like it. A wealth of flavors, some spice and a touch of hop bitterness. 4.25

This beer is effing tasty. Tons of flavor, aroma, and sensations. Outstanding beer. I'll have to buy more. 4.42
