I stopped by my neighborhood craft beer store a few weeks back and talked with the owner a little on one of my walks with my 4-month-old puppy. He suggested I try this new beer by 7 Puentes. This was the first time I have tried anything from this brewer, but I trust this guy's judgment, and he was totally correct.
This is a Brown Ale made with vanilla and English hops and malts. This is a complex deep beer with a lot going on, but it is smooth and well balanced.
The tasting profile includes vanilla, malts, caramel, and nuts. They are all carefully balanced, and delivered in a medium-bodied elixer with a caramel head.
This beer can go perfectly with a dessert, anything chocolate, for example. I can think of brownies or chocolate chip cookies, and maybe even a chocolate donut.
This is very much a classic English Brown Ale with a vanilla twist to it. If you have a chance to try it, don't miss out. It's a limited edition beer, so don't wait too long.
