Coastal Extreme Brewing Newport Storm – Vlad (Cyclone Series)
Coastal Extreme Brewing Newport Storm – Vlad is a Russian Imperial Stout and is a part of their Cyclone Series. (Brewed and named sequentially like tropical storms in small batches) I found this at a gift shop in the T.F. Green airport in Providence RI. and I figured, why not? I’m glad I grabbed a bottle because it turns out to be pretty tasty. Nice nose of dark fruits, cola and dark chocolate. Tremendous roast and bitter dark chocolate give way to a slightly rough and hoppy finish. I’m thinking this might mellow out a bit over time, but it was still quite good when I had it. I just goes to show you really never know where you might find a great beer!
