This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee beans are grown in the fertile soil of some of the highest Caribbean peaks, making it one of the most prized gourmet coffees in the world. This rare coffee uses lightly roasted Arabica beans to create subtle acidity and a well-balanced chocolaty finish. With the help of local roaster, Mostra Coffee, these 100% Blue Mountain beans were sourced from the renowned Mavis Bank Coffee Factory in Jamaica. Carefully roasted and cold-brewed, this coffee is the perfect complement to our award-winning Imperial Stout.

Bottle shared by Umberto yesterday.

This one pours fairly dark black, with a half inch head, and a good amount of lacing.

This one obviously smells very strongly of roasted coffee, roasted malt, burnt coffee beans, black pepper, and chocolate.

The Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee provides a definitely interesting coffee character here. It's intensely roasty, almost burnt tasting, with some black pepper, smoke, and a tiny bit of acidity. There's also chocolate. This is a very earthy coffee stout for sure. Definitely a nice change up from the usual coffee flavors.

This is thick bodied, with a creamy but bitter mouthfeel, and a lower level of carbonation. Very drinkable.

I'm not sure if this is better than regular Speedway. It's definitely not better than Vietnamese. But it's still a very tasty coffee stout and shows how talented Alesmith is when it come to infusing coffee into stouts.
