Notes / Commercial Description:
We have chosen two barrels of Birth of Tragedy as the base for this single origin coffee experiment. After aging for 20 months in select bourbon barrels, we conditioned this beer atop Akmel Nuri's Ethiopian coffee beans sourced and roasted by The Coffee Collective in Copenhagen, Denmark. These friends long ago changed our worldview as to what coffee could be. After months of bottle conditioning, the beer is ready for release.


This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

poured from the bottle at StoutFest -Armsby Abbey
Pours a dark brown with a slight tan head. Smell is of dark black coffee beans. Very robust and potent. The taste is loaded with coffee, chocolate, and a bit of vanilla in there. Surprisingly a bit thinner than I had expected, but none the less a great coffee stout. A pleasure to try this pre-release to the public!

375 mL bottle. Black with a nice khaki head. Smells of honey, coffee, sweet chocolate, and bourbon. Tastes very sweet. Coffee. Honey. Bourbon. Mostly sugar. Medium heavy. Boozy more than thick. It's much like regular Birth. Good, but way too sweet.

Close second to BOT Kochere. Dark with a mocha head, and rich dominant coffee goodness. Noticeable sweetness, with nut, vanilla, and spice. Love these Birth of Tragedy variants lately!

Sits black in the glass with a finger of fluffy light khaki colored head. Cinnamon, milk chocolate, vanilla, dark Cherry skin and honey sweetness. Medium to thinner bodied. Finishes fairly dry. Some bitterness rounds out the Lingering roasted coffee flavors. As with most of Hill's beers, this is all about the balance. Really solid.

Best beer I have Ever had. Rich and well balanced. First sip to last, purely enjoyable. Drinks more like a RIS.
