Notes: This is the the non barrel-aged version of Genealogy of Morals, conditioned in stainless steel. Dark, rich and smooth, it’s complex flavors belie the singular vision with which we create it—echoing the work the inspires it. For this selection of Genealogy, our stainless-conditioned coffee imperial stout (the base beer for Genealogy of Morals), we have chosen to condition the beer atop San Fermin from the Tolima region of Colombia, sourced and roasted by The Coffee Collective in Copenhagen, Denmark.

750 ml. growler from the brewery.
Best before Aug 20 2019.
Moderate to vigorous pour yields a tan head over a near black body with some sheet lacing. Nose of roasted malt, roasted coffee, with slight dark fruit, dark chocolate, and nuts. Taste is near perfect with a complexity that will be hard to beat (or even explain!) Flavors of dark fruit, dark chocolate, bitter chocolate, chocolate covered peanuts, chocolate covered raisins, coffee, espresso, and a richness heretofore rarely seen. Feel of velvet fullness and overall, a wonderful experience.

Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark brown almost black with a thin mocha head that fades to leave light wisps and a thin blanket.

S - Big aromas of earthy and fruity coffee, lovely roasty and dark. Nice dark chocolate. Awesome roast and dark chocolate. Really fruity, super aromatic.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with loads of slightly sweet malts and roast. Great fruity chocolate, really bright acidity and roast. Dark bakers chocolate, alcohol hidden nicely. Lovely fruity chocolate.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, creamy, great body.

O - Overall this was a very solid coffee stout. Excellent chocolate and coffee going on here. Just incredibly well balanced and brewed. Wish I bought more.

Darker foamy tan head, good retention, decent lacing, basically pitch black color

Nose loads of coffee even from far away, little fruity raisiny coffee, earthy nutty, super nutty coffee, little alcohol, soft aged coffee thing that's fun, little cocoa light roasty malt but creamy fluffy, little nougat, touch candy coffee

Taste super earthy nutty coffee again, a bit dark fruit, chewy fruit, fig like thing, dark chocolate, earthy little nutty, light bitterness, light alcohol

Mouth is med to fuller bod creamy, medium carb, little alcohol

Overall quite nice, great fruity fresh roasty nutty coffee, enjoyable
