Notes: Double Shot, our beloved coffee stout, has been refined time and time again to achieve a beer that is as robust in its base as it is a worthy purveyor of fresh & distinctive house-roasted coffee.

For this rendition, we added fresh-roasted, hand selected beans from the La Coolpa region of Peru. This lot is a blend of 27 different single holder farmers, resulting in enchanting complexity. We taste and smell chocolate, caramel, black cherry, and brown sugar. Enjoy!

Pours dark black with a thin brown head. The smell of the the beer has a big coffee forward nose. The taste of the beer is sweet up front with the coffee coming in just behind it finishing up with a subtle spiciness. The feel of the beer is smooth. Overall this was a nice coffee stout.

Thanks to rudzud
Pours a large mocha colored foamy creamy rich head, moderate retention, nice sticky messy lacing, nice legs, inky black color

Nose brings lush coffee, nice nutty slight fruity coffee, rich coffee, some cocoa and dark chocolate, little wafer cookie dough toasted grain, touch of caramel, a bit roasty and quite nutty, hint smokey, a bit of chocolate fudge too

Taste brings big coffee again, smooth rich coffee, quite nutty again and a touch fruity, a bit fudgey cocoa, dark chocolate, a little caramel toffee and cocoa powder, fair bitterness some from roasted malts and some spicy hop notes, fruitiness probably from the coffee brings a little fig paste, and touch smokey hints at a BBQ sauce thing, quite nutty as well, a little vanilla thing going on, drier finish with a touch more bitterness, nutty and fruity coffee lingering

Mouth is med to fuller bod, rich creamy, med carb, very light alcohol

Overall mixed, had some great characters and the coffee was nice, but the fruitiness from the coffee and smokey note with nutty brought a strange combination that was like BBQ sauce on the taste, rudzud got it on the nose even

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark dark brown almost black with a super fat dark mocha head that fades to leave nice lacing and a thick blanket. Excellent legs.

S - Aromas of nutty coffee, big almost chalky roast, flashes of chocolate. There are nice very aggressive coffee ground notes, loads of an almost slightly smoky BBQ sauce on the back end of the nose. There are flashes of alcohol as well.

T - Taste is creamy, creamy chocolate flavour. Big roasted coffee, quite fruity and nutty. There is nice almost char as well. The super fruity coffee and char...I swear this drinks like there is smoky BBQ sauce. The finish is slightly sweet and sugary with a bit of vanilla. Almost candy bar like. No alcohol burn.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, creamy, alcohol hidden very nicely.

O - Overall ths was a solid enough stout. The coffee is super roasty and fruity, but with the big char notes I really get an almost BBQ sauce aroma and flavour that is very, very unusual. I wonder if that would drop off some with time...
