BEER INFO

Brewed by:
8 Wired Brewing Co.
New Zealand (Aotearoa)
8wired.co.nz

Style: American Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
The "i" might be in lower case, but beware - this is a capital beer. Brimming with luscious roasted coffee and chocolate malt flavours drizzled over a scoop of velvety ice cream. iStout Affogato is balanced by a brisk bitterness and bold, hoppy freshness, remixed by the addition of lactose, coffee, and vanilla in the brew.

Black, puffy belgian head foam.

Roasted malt, coffee, vanilla. Perfect.

Like iced cream it finishes with a sticky vanilla. Notes of sweet caramel put it over the top, coffee's there for earthy mix to roasted malt. Maybe could use just bit of a punch up on sweetness.

Not clean, not Omnipollo thick, maybe a tinge thin.

Really complex intense layered flavors with depth, big cocoa powder, baking chocolate, rich creamy vanilla and lactose, immense robust roasted dark coffee, some sweet caramel, toffee and toasty graham crackery malts balanced with a big hoppy bitterness
