Looking for another peanut butter stout? Lead Dog Brewing has got you covered.
The inviting aroma, and taste of the peanut butter, with hints of chocolate and vanilla, make this one delightful beer. Lead Dog retained reminisces of chocolate malt, and vanilla beans, from their original “Choconilla Stout.”
Modern Times continues to keep up with their fascinating reputation for enhancing quality espresso flavor with beer, branding themselves as one of the only breweries in the world to brew with barrel-aged coffee beans.
I had always appreciated the way Modern Times took with their coffee and beer – quality and originality. It’s special to have an establishment that keeps its signature taste, being one of the only breweries in general to roast their own coffee.
There I was, completely in awe after experiencing the mind blowing mouthful, that is the Nitro Merlin Milk Stout, the tastiest beer I’ve had to this day.
I’ve always known Firestone Brewing Co. to be solid, and to have a respectable reputation, but this beer is just ridiculous. This milk stout blows away any kind of sweet stout, brown ale ever consumed.
If you are a big fan of Russian Imperial Stouts like I am, then you need to do yourself a favor and check out the Shroud by Bravery Brewing.
Bravery has quickly become one of my favorite breweries, not just in the AV but in all of Los Angeles County. The combination of quality and variety is what it makes it such a compelling brewing company, followed by passion reflected by the staff and the brand.
