Getting My Beer On With Valley Vineyards C.D. Eye Opener

Eye Opener from Valley Vineyards Cellar Dweller is a Hazelnut Coffee Stout that I mistakenly stumbled across at a craft beer store located inside of a BP gas station, something I did not expect. I went in for some gas and came out with a case that included a six-pack of these. Moreover, I am glad that I did as this one delivered as nicely as advertised. There were some great notes of coffee in the aroma that also came across in the taste along with the Hazelnut. Nutty, toasty, roasty and smooth, this ale provided a nice mouthcoating experience that came together nicely. This beer itself carried an ABV of 6.5% and a low IBU of 6. The updated version now being offered carries an ABV of 6% and an IBU of 24, so the recipe has changed and I wonder why because the one I had was pretty much on point. This is something to keep in mind if you decide to give it a go. But see and hear more of my thoughts by checking out the video, and if you have had this one in either version then let me know what you think of it by leaving a comment.
