I walk by this bottle at my local liquor store every time I walk through it. I love the idea of the Cold Press and the Vanilla Bean and with this edition, you get twice of it, but the $28 price tag scared me off.
Recently I was talking with a friend while we were at another coffee beer release party and the conversation switched to Duluth’s Bent Paddle and this beer that I have not grabbed for a long time now. I was told I have nothing to be hesitant about and to grab a bottle the next time I am in there.
Upon the recommendation, I grabbed one and chilled that sucker to almost froze and poured myself a nice Pint. I love the Cold Press Intense flavor and the Double Vanilla Bean gives it this awesome subtle sweet Smoothness that I really dug. The smell of it was great to, you really got the hints of coffee and Chocolate. My only downside is I am not a huge Bourbon fan, so that mild burn was not something I am a giant fan of. But it was not to overpowering so it still made for a great beer.
You get about 2 solid Pint glasses out of the bottle which is the perfect amount for sitting around doing some grilling and dinner.
