What the brewers say

“Created for relaxed mornings when work is optional and the snow keeps falling. Brewed with locally sourced coffee and rich chocolate and pairs well with a hearty breakfast.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Big coffee/espresso, moderate vanilla, light caramel sweetness and cherry, touch of coconut, nutty toasty. Light cocoa nibs with a touch of alcohol. Sweet coffee blends well with the richness of the dark malt bill.”

Flavor: “A wonderful blend of coffee and stout that helps you appreciate the difference between roast malt and coffee. This is clean coffee first, sweetened with caramel syrup and vanilla, with a pleasant roastiness that sneaks in near the finish and lasts. Alcohol is warming and a little spicy. The base beer has nice chocolate and toast character with vanilla from the barrel to sweeten things up a bit, then the coffee brings things together.”

Overall: “Coffee-dominated stout. The chocolate and sweet notes are dominated by a delicious espresso-like coffee. The sweetness and coffee strength remind me of sweet coffee desserts. Very well executed.”
