Review: It’s been a hot minute since I’ve reviewed any beer, so bear with me.

This beer was very tasty, but it almost wasn’t beer to me. I should admit that I have little experience with drinking White Russian cocktails. One of my best friends, Evyn, introduced me to them in Cuba, of all places. That was four years ago. I may have gone another three years before drinking a White Russian again — and that was when my friend Danylo decided he’d make them for me and all of my roommates to celebrate their graduation in May 2020. I will say: I am quite fond of the beverage, given the limited experience.

This beer is perplexing in that it’s a stout, but it’s got the color of a much lighter beer. Like a wheat beer. It is so creamy that you just forget that you’re drinking beer. You do taste the coffee and vanilla. Honestly, I’d give this a higher ranking if it were just more versatile. It’s THICK. You wouldn’t drink it in summertime. But the last night of February? Sure.
