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.

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

Killer label. Nice one with light peat and smoke notes, sweet caramel, lots of bitterness and lots of sweetness.

A meal in itself. Almost perfect balance of bitter chocolate and some sweetness. Black with some head, bittersweet chocolate aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. Incredibly drinkable. Fresh bottle from 20 west.

Marsiblursi (2993) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2014
(Pours black with a small brown head) the aroma is fat roasted with perfect tones of cocoa, coffee and mild tar. Undertones of blue berries, vanilla and a touch of resinous hops. The flavour is light to medium sweet, medium bitter and light acidic, with notes of deep roast, balanced hops, vanilla and blue berries. The mouthfeel clean, light syrupy and light astringent with a light to medium carbonation. Bit dryer on the finish. Touch of alcohol. Near medium bodied.

Bomber bought @ The Mikkeller Webshop. Pours oily pitch black with a thin dark mocha head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is slightly sweet, malty and tiny fruity with roasted malts, burnt grains, toffee, bilberry jam, ripe blackberries, dark chocolate, dark roast coffee, sweet liquorice candy, hay and hints of chocolate covered cherries. Taste is slightly sweet, slightly bitter, very tiny sour, malty and slightly fruity with heavily roasted malts, burnt grains, toffee, vanilla fudge, bilberry icecream, dark chocolate, dark roast coffee, hay and hints of burnt wood. Mouthfeel is round, soft, slightly viscous, slightly astringent and medium to full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, slightly bitter, malty and slightly fruity with roasted malts, dark chocolate, sugar topped bilberries in milk, dark roast coffee, burnt wood, toffee, vanillin and hints of alcohol and hay. Unique, intriguing and really very tasty… Prominent lactose and heavy roast makes a billberry and chocolate ice cream stout.

Bomber to snifter (thanks Beerpig317). Looks good; a mostly opaque dark cola with beige lacing. Smells good too; smooth, dark, and roasty. Tastes like it smells with some vanilla too, and a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Good beer!

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.
