BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Kuhnhenn Brewing Company
Michigan, United States
kbrewery.com

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Coffee. Chocolate. Caramel. Vanilla. You’re used to seeing a lot of these terms when describing stouts. These are not just descriptors; they are ingredients. “Java,” as we call it, has become a crowd favorite by perfectly balancing the sweet and the roast, thanks to the use of Creme Brule coffee. The aroma and flavor are a coffee, chocolate or dessert-lover’s dream in a glass.

On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Very pleasant surprise. Kind of noodlin' around the list & this catches my eye. Maybe early in the session for an 8.5%, but alongside the other tastes I requested, this bad boy spoke to me.

There is a heap of flavor here. In similar circumstances I've found clashes for attention, but these elements are very well mannered. You can check all the familiar boxes, coffee, vanilla, choco & a touch of lacto.

Ummm, Ummm, Ummm. One to watch out for in all sense of the expression. It might draw you on to the rock like the sirens of old. What a way to go, right? But remember once you are "on the rocks", there's no looking back. So give the keys to the designated driver & have another 'cause this is one you may not see again, if at all.

Pours a black with a 2 inch beige head. Smells of sweet vanilla, coffee, chocolate, caramel, sweet cream, dulce de leche, and roasted malt. Taste of sweet coffee, caramel, creme brulee, slight bitter, roasted malt, chocolate, and a bit of spice. Full mouth feel with a light to medium body and just a slight crisp making it very drinkable.
