Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 127: Thirsty Crow Vanilla Milk Stout
Thirsty Crow Vanilla Milk Stout

Pours a very deep brown/black with a small head, which fades away fast. A lot of bubbles on the surface.

First Sip: Sweet, slightly malty, mildly vanilla-ey with a lot of dark chocolate and coffee flavours, and a mild hops bitterness on the back of the tongue. Mouth-feel is smooth if a little thin. Very faint carbonation tingle on the tongue. The tastes become more prominent as the stout warms.

This stout is best served at cellar temperatures, not chilled. It is highly drinkable, and goes down easily. Very easily. I feel like opening another bottle immediately. Must pace myself! It's very yummy.

Chocolate & Stout

Oooooh! Dark chocolate and strawberries!

That's a real strawberry, not cream. And it was really intense.

Where do you find these wonderful sounding concoctions!?! I've been looking all over the Seattle area, and only found a select few that you've mentioned.

I just wander around, see a brew and think "That sounds interesting. I wonder what it tastes like."

I tried one of the Double chocolate stouts you reviewed, and the Well's Banana Bread Beer (the latter we can get in our local supermarket, but the former I had to go to a specialty shop and they ordered a case to be brought in, which worked out nicely, since the shop owner's husband really liked that one.) And while I found the stout to be a bit too strong in alcohol for my liking, the Well's is a hit here, for myself and our friends who imbibe from time to time. :)
