Perennial Artisan Ales Shake the Frost
What the brewers say
"Session coffee stout with Sump Coffee."
What our panel thought
“A coffee stout where the line between roast malt and roast coffee is blurred. Here, the aroma hits that sweet spot; the flavor leans hard into coffee, balanced by some dark-roasted malt. In the finish, a creamy coffee character persists without too much of the bitterness or harshness that some stouts can have.”
What our editors thought
“Woody, roasty coffee note on the nose. Tight and succinct. The flavor skews light, with softer fruity coffee notes balancing the gentle roast. Satisfying without heaviness.”
