COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Here is a father’s toast to his son. Brewed with cocoa nibs and lactose, Hunter boasts a creamy texture and rich chocolate flavor. Vanilla, roast, and caramel sweetness are met with a bright hop bitterness. Complex enough to pair with dinner or dessert. Suave enough to skip the meal altogether. A chip off the old block, alright.

Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours pitch black with a small, creamy, well-tanned head. Good retention. The bouquet is reminiscent of chocolate crème or chocolate icing mingled with a slight pistachio element. Full-bodied and über creamy with tickling carbonation. The flavor delivers loads of sweet lactose and nearly enough mega-roastiness to balance things out. Finishes sweet and roasty with a light lingering bitterness. Thanks go out to landhoney for sharing his bottle and BBB63 for sending me a bottle of my own!

Shared bomber, poured to snifters, and displayed a black/brown color, with a frothy, brownish tan head, spots & streaks of lacing, and a syrupy coating that tinted the glass. The nose was roasted, mocha notes, toffee, smoke & wood, and a touch of lactose creaminess. The taste was similar, with a medium+ body, low carbonation, moderate, roasted & earthy bitterness, and a pleasant sweetness that lasted throughout. Very nice!

Sampler pour on tap at the brewery (Gary, IN). Pours a nice deep dark blackish opaque hue. Dark and ominous with some decent legs, frothy light brown head atop stays as a decent ringer, laces ok. Gentle light on the edges really never makes a dent as the tar pool like deep hues are midnight hued. Aromas are cocoa and roast, gentle toffee and lactose sweetness. Touches of coffee, roast and toast are covered by some sweet toffee, caramel, and creamy vanilla/lactose play as it warms. Initial is fuller bodied, displaying nice lactose sweetness, touches of vanilla, milk chocolate, faint dark fruit wafts. Roasty malts, black malt and caramel. The middle gets creamy and silky, incorporating sweeter flavors well with a nice roast and toast counter. Lactose, coffee, and gentle ashy roast is earthy and balances well. Backend is still creamy, tapering out well with vanilla, lactose, and gentle earthy toast elements. A bit roasty, firm body still makes it envelope the palate well with it’s richer flavors without overwhelming or getting too sweet, providing good balance, rich flavors, and good lasting and lingering roast/coffee/sweet sensations together.

Drew Fox welcome to Miller Beach! It is awesome to have such a talented brewer here in NWI. Hunter is a double milk stout with 9.5 ABV. Drink two of these and your good for the whole night! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
