On tap at Belmont Station.

A - Served a dark brownish-black with a foamy dark tan head.

S - Very coffee centered with some Roasty malt following. Not much chocolate.

T - Coffe and burnt malt.

D - Very thin and bitter. This almost ruined the beer for me.

O - I wasn't impressed. I was glad to try something different from Upright, but this was a miss in my book.

Commercial Description:
A collaboration with former longtime Oregon brewer Corey Blogett, now head brewer at Maritime Pacific in Seattle. The Monk and Mingus is made for the Cheers to Belgian Beers fest in April and completely different every year. This particular batch is a strong stout fermented rather cool to keep the yeast profile in check and make room for a cold pressed infusion of coffee from Heart Coffee Roasters.

on-tap at Belmont Station.
from notes.

Arrives black with a thick, foamy light tan head.

Lots of roast coffee, very faint cocoa.

Very earthy, roast coffee with a slightly bitter finish.

Medium body, with low to moderate carbonation.

A well done coffee stout, nice to get something a bit different then the standard Upright offerings. The coffee used lends a definite earthy coffee bean character.
