The Joe Latté Vanilla Coffee Stout by CB Brewery of Honeoye Falls, New York is a beer that takes you to Christmas and other seasonal get-togethers where coffee is served later in the evening with dessert. My initial impression was the balanced coffee and vanilla taste and the smooth creamy texture. This beer is not bitter and I almost forget that I am drinking beer in the first place. The color is dark due to it being milk stout and the dark malt makes a perfect complement to the vanilla flavor. The beer has a sweet taste as well.
I give the Joe Latté Vanilla Coffee Stout 9 out of 10 for the perfect balance of flavor and texture. I definitely recommend it if you can find it for your seasonal parties.
