Last night (1/26/2016) we all walked to the Caboose Brewing Company (Vienna, Virginia, USA) to check it out and sample a few of their locally brewed beers in their tasting room. Caboose is one of the breweries I will be applying for an entry-level brewing positions in the coming week. Wish me luck!
My first beer of the night was Caboose’s Vanilla Bean Hobo Imperial Stout coming in at 8% alcohol by volume (or ABV). According to Caboose’s website, Vanilla Hobo Stout was brewed using roasted, chocolate, black, and munich malts and then aged on Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans. Caboose’s Vanilla Bean Hobo Imperial Stout was listed as an American Stout on BeerAdvocate.com, an Imperial Stout at ratebeer.com, and a Stout – Imperial / Double on UNTAPPD.com.
Below is the commercial description of Caboose’s Vanilla Bean Hobo Imperial Stout:
“A rich blend of roasted, chocolate, black and munich malts aged on Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans. Coffee, vanilla, and toffee notes hit the nose and then give way to a creamy mouthfeel with a hint of vanilla in the end.” – Caboose Brewing Company
My next beer was Caboose’s So Fresh & So Cream! (Casey Jones Rye Pale Ale Cask) with orange zest, vanilla, and brown sugar added.
