Val recently purchased some new coffee from one of our favorite places. They make a Horchata coffee that she cools down for iced coffee. It’s my new favorite thing. There’s no good coffee places by my job. I’m stuck with either getting Wawa or Dunkin’ Donuts, neither of which I’m a huge fan of. The one good thing about living or working in a city is having a good coffee shop. I guess I’ll just have to suffer.
Style: American Double/Imperial Stout
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “A double coffee stout made with cold brew coffee and flavors of chocolate and caramel.”
Random: The website says that this a collaboration beer, but doesn’t say who the collaboration is with.
The beer poured with a quarter finger of tan head that dissipated slowly. It didn’t leave much lacing on the glass, but left a small crown. The body was dark brown, almost black. Due to the color, I couldn’t see any carbonation. The nose was very earthy with lots of dark coffee. There was a nuttiness to the beer as well. The taste started with very strong espresso notes. It transitioned into dark chocolate and lactose. Vanilla notes came through next. The booze made a slight appearance, but was relatively well-integrated. The body was on the heavy side with moderate carbonation. It had a lengthy and sticky finish with coffee. I picked up the pounder can for $4.75, which came to $.30 per ounce. I really enjoyed this beer and if you like strong coffee, I think you’ll enjoy it too.
