Cerebral Peace Be the Journey

What the brewers say

“Brewed in collaboration with our friends at Horus Aged Ales. Conditioned on Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee specifically roasted for this beer with Madagascar Bourbon vanilla beans.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Chocolate with a faint java note at first. It’s very restrained overall, then a nice nutty peanut-butter character as it warms and evolves into coffee with vanilla cream.”

Flavor: “Rich chocolate and caramel sweetness. The coffee character is pretty subtle: it adds a bit to the roast character on the finish. Pretty sweet on balance, nice and creamy mouthfeel but a little heavy overall. Pleasant alcoholic warming on the swallow. Very nice fruity flavors.”

Overall: “A bit on the sweet side with heavy chocolate. A touch more coffee could help balance it out. Moderate coffee spiciness throughout the sip with alcohol that balances and combines at the end to create a light bite.”
