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.

February 2014 bottle. Tampa review dump, full notes taken during consumption of beer.

A- Deep black pour from the 750ml to a snifter. Mocha tan head under one finger with decent retention. Spotty lace.

S- Coffee is the strongest in this variant. Roasty and chocolate dry roast dark coffee with a tiny bit of dark raisins. The base is classic heavily roast barley.

T- Just coffee brilliance. The use and amount of coffee flavor is pretty much expert level amazing. Milk and dark chocolate brownie dessert with heavily roasted grains and some dry dark fruits.

MF- Thick body with a fairly creamy texture and medium high carbonation. Finishes with a bit drier than the other Speedways with a roasty bitterness.

One of the best uses of coffee I have tasted. Yes it is insane gourmet coffee but the amount of base and amount of coffee is basically half and half the compliment each other perfectly.

Appearance: A magnificent pour, with the rocky tan head forming a thick barrier over the pitch black liquid; plenty of lacing lingers and the retention is excellent

Smell: Dark chocolate syrup with a subtle touch of coffee and a hint of smoke

Taste: Dark chocolate and a touch of charred wood, up front, with the coffee tones building through the middle; caramel and brown sugar arrive after the swallow, bringing additional sweetness, though there is a trace of bitterness from the hops in the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: I have been drinking a few good coffee stouts lately, but this one just rocketed up to the top echelon

Thanks, lincolnbeard, for the opportunity
