The Veil Brewing French Vanilla Hornswoggler debuts this week

The Veil Brewing French Vanilla Hornswoggler

There’s a new dessert beer in Richmond, Virginia this week. The Veil Brewing French Vanilla Hornswoggler joins the lineup of the brewery’s most decadent.

This journey starts with Hornswoggler, the brewery’s chocolate milk stout. This variant is conditioned on a house blend of coffee, plus vanilla beans and a touch of hazelnut. The brewery explains this beer is a blend of each of the flavors, without one dominating.

The goal for French Vanilla Horns was to be a harmonious blend of all of the adjuncts. It was not the intent for it to be a coffee, Vanilla, or hazelnut bomb. It turned out awesome! Super aromatic. Very complex flavor profile.

The “Hornswoggler” series has featured a Coconut, Oreos, and Peanut Butter Oreos edition.

The Veil Brewing French Vanilla Hornswoggler debuts on May 23rd in limited 16 ounce cans and draft.

Style: Milk Stout (w/ Cocoa Nibs. Coffee. Vanilla Beans. Hazelnut. Lactose.)
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: 5/23/17

The Veil Brewing is serious about dessert beer with this Oreos & peanut butter release

The Veil Brewing Hornswoggler Oreos Peanut Butter

The Veil Brewing’s Hornswoggler, a chocolate milk stout brewed with an ungodly amount of Oreo cookies was ridiculous. When you poured the beer, little icing chunks flowed into your glass. Today, the brewery takes things a step further.

There are folks out there that dip their Oreo cookie in peanut butter. For those indulgent dessert lovers, The Veil Brewing Bourbon Pecan Peanut Butter & Oreos is brewed for you.

Using the brewery’s chocolate milk stout, the beer has been conditioned on not only hundreds of pounds of Oreo cookies, but Reginald’s Homemade Bourbon Pecan Peanut Butter as well. A win-win for lovers of cookies and peanut butter.

The Oreos edition from January was RIDICULOUS. It was as close to drinking a liquefied cookie as you can get (without actually liquifying a cookie). Dessert Beer is sacred to us at Beer Street Journal, and The Veil ups the ante with this edition. The peanut butter takes the lead, over the Oreos, but they are far from subtle. It’s hard to stop smelling the glass.

Due the fact the beer has been aging this beer on sugary cookies, extra fermentable sugars have been introduced to this beer. If you find yourself lucky enough to possess this mother of all dessert beers, keep the cans cold and drink fresh. Trust us on this one.

A little over 120 cases of The Veil Brewing Bourbon Pecan Peanut Butter & Oreos will be available when the brewery opens at 4 pm.

Style. Milk Stout (w/ LactoseOreo Cookies, Peanut Butter)
Availability: 16oz Cans. Limited.
Debut: 4/4/17
