Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Traditional Caffè Americano is made by adding water to espresso. We break all the rules with this Double Stout. We refuse to add water to our beer after fermentation, but have no issues adding beer to our espresso. This deep, dark stout exhibits rich espresso and coffee notes, which are contributed by the generous use of roasted barley and espresso locally roasted by Buddy Brew Coffee. That simply is not enough for us. We also add roasted, raw chocolate and a hint of vanilla to this big bodied stout. Dodge the red eye and take a shot of the dark.

Deep brown in color and opaque. Minimal carbonation and lacing.

Nose is Bourbon, coffee, vanilla, and a bit of oak.

Taste is a mixture of sweetness, black coffee, vanilla, and oak.

Mouthful is medium and smooth. Carbonation is low. Finish is dry.

Very very coffee forward beer. Drinkable. Enjoyable. Strong. Try it out if available.

Smell: big amounts of fresh expresso Caco vanilla
Taste: right upfront a big hit of expresso coffee Caco middle of the mouth vanilla blueberry milk chocolate finishes with hints of dark chocolate and some roasty biterness.
Feel: nice full body thick chewy creamy mouthfeel. The roasted expresso notes linger in the aftertaste.
Overall: if you like expresso then you will really love this beer.
