Lickinghole Creek’s Vanilla Virginia Black Bear Is A Panda. A Snow Panda.

Lickinghole Creek debuts the latest in their series of imperial stouts today Saturday January 10th at noon.

Vanilla Virginia Black Bear is the yang to Virginia Black Bear’s yin. Ten Specialty Grains comprise the backbone of the bear and high alpha American hops give the bear his teeth. Notes of dark chocolate and coffee abound and fresh vanilla rounds out the flavor. Used as the base beer for Illuminatos, the Vanilla Virginia Black Bear has casually drifted to meander where he wants. Watch out, he hugs.

I’m hearing Illuminatos will be aged in rum barrels. Head over to the Facebook event for more details.

Next up in LCCB’s stout series will be Heir Apparent, a Mexican spiced stout. Hmmm…sounds like LCCB is working up to a stout fest or maybe these will be unveiled on Despot Day.
