WIRED: The Veil Brewing Single Origin Coffee Hornswoggler

The Veil Brewing Single Origin Coffee Hornswoggler

The famed ‘Hornswoggler’ gets treated to a cup of coffee today. The Veil Brewing Single Origin Coffee Hornswoggler debuts at 4 pm.

This dessert beer series started with a chocolate milk stout known as Hornswoggler. The smooth, creamy, flavors of chocolate with a hint of coffee is as rich as it is pleasing. That release has spun off variants like Coconut, Oreos, and even candy bars.

The Veil Brewing Single Origin Coffee Hornswoggler is the latest variant in the lineup, featuring coffee from Richmond, Virginia based Blanchard’s Coffee. After sampling through their roasts, The Veil settled on their Colombia El Obraje variety. Those fans that have tried the brewery’s Snozzwired (and loved it), you’ll be happy to know there is 3 times more coffee in Single Origin Coffee Hornswoggler.

This is just EXPLODING with intense coffee both on the aromatics and palate.

Style: Milk Stout (w/ Coffee. Lactose.)
