BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Trillium Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States
trilliumbrewing.com

Style: American Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.60%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
We teamed up with Miami's J. Wakefield Brewing to create another Italian dessert inspired decadent stout! This time we captured elements of Tiramisu in this Imperial Stout with five hundred pounds of Lady Fingers from Salem, Massachusetts based AJs Bakery, Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Beans, Brown Sugar, and coffee from Mostra & Barrington.
Tiramisu leads with powerful aromas of deeply roasted coffee, rich dark chocolate, vanilla, and a backbone of freshly baked cake and subtle caramelized brown sugar. The palate continues with more dark chocolate, vanilla, brownie batter, and heavy, creamy coffee. A thick, viscous, latte-like mouthfeel leaves a coating on the glass and lingering, satisfying sweetness in the mouth.

MALT: Maris Otter, C80, C120, Flaked Oats, Black Malt, Chocolate Malt, Munich Malt, White Wheat, Dark Brown Sugar, Lactose Sugar, Lady Fingers
HOPS, ETC: Hop Extract

A pour of double espresso viscosity. Light streams through the laminar pour, but the glass fills with pure blackness with a dark tan head. Coffee dominates right out of the bottle, but it’s quickly swept away, and replaced by dark fruits, vanilla and cocoa powder. I’m craving a bit more body, and more coffee, but it’s a solid beer.

Pours deep black with no head.

Aroma is dark roast coffee . Clearly evident.

Smooth chocolate and coffee dominate the pallet. Lots of sweetness in back end

Mouthfeel while solid, could be a little thicker.

Very solid beer just not quite as good as affogato

awesome beer no doubt, lucky to have had this shared with me, but also why is there lactose in here? its not needed. not that this is overly sweet in any way, but just that the whole thing would still be rich and regal and desserty without it, it makes no sense, seems forced, and pisses me off. i mean, pisses me off as much as i can reasonably be pissed off drinking a beer this rare and nice, and in such good company. i think its cool they put a whole bunch of lady fingers in this, it has a cakey, cookie complexion to the nose and taste that cannot be denied. it also has a distinct brown sugar, molasses, and cooked dessert character, really cool. vanilla is strong but there is roasty grain bitterness too, oaty and coffee driven as well, a really good base beer without all this stuff added in. i like the coffee, i think i recall two roasters on the label, which might be political, but also gives this some neat coffee diversity, an element which shouldnt be overlooked in this. rich and cookie dough-like, but also really balanced for what it is, hardly alcoholic at all, and a ton of fun, especially with a good friend, some epic caprese, and tasty live dead vinyl... i will not soon forget this one, and am even more looking forward to my trip to boston later this month now!
