Stimulus is a 7% Belgian Amber made with Intelligentsia Coffee. The idea was to make a coffee beer that wasn’t black in color, and did more than just accentuate a “roasty” flavor. The coffees produced by Intelligentsia are so nuanced and flavorful that we wanted to accentuate those flavors and find complementary components we could draw on in the beer.

The appearance of this beer is of clear light amber to crisp copper orange with a medium head maybe one-inch off-white head which fades to a thin cap and leaves splotches on top and spots of lace.

The aroma of this beer has Subtle coffee notes with malt, pear, green apple, tobacco, navel orange, coffee cherry, yeasty, floral like of dandelion, caramel and toffee malts.

The flavors of this beer are of coffee probably a Colombia, tart citrus like of white grapefruit, light coffee, yeast, prune, red apple, white pepper, vanilla extract, malt, allspice, and organo. Finishes with notes of caramel and toffee.

This is a light body, like a pale ale or IPA, but a nice rich creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation is low to medium.

This beer had low foam. This beer had a strong taste of espresso. Medium carbonation within this beer. People who seek a beer that tastes like espresso will enjoy Stimulus.

This beer delivers on the coffee flavor. I'm more accustomed to coffee stouts with higher abv but this is a welcomed change of pace.
Carbonation and mouthfeel is more enjoyable with each sip. Almost like a coffee flavored champagne.
I wish I bought more than one. I could imagine this being a great beer to have for brunch....
