Style: American Barleywine

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
For this variant, we added Goodnow Farms cacao nibs to our cold brew infused blonde barleywine. Like the original, Cacao Day & Night pours a golden-amber and displays the floral and spicy aromatics of lighter roast coffees but with an added layer of earthy cocoa powder. A coffee forward palate unfolds flavors of macchiatos, almond shortbread, vanilla, pie crust, toffee, and chewy caramel. On the back end, the cacao provides a touch of baker’s chocolate for a rounded and moderate bitterness. Medium bodied with a slightly warming character, Cacao Day & Night is strong but never overpowering.

MALT: Pilsner, Abbey, Turbinado Sugar

HOPS: Columbus

ADDITIONAL INGREDIENTS: Barrington Cold Brewed Coffee, Cacao Nibs from Goodnow Farms

A: Deep murky gold with rich white head, and sticky lacing.
N: Coffee, chocolate, and caramel. Some nut notes and malt mixed in there.
T: Follows the nose, big coffee flavors with a soft chocolate, some sweet malt/caramel, and nutty flavors.
M: Medium, very clean and easy to drink, there is no way this feels like 10% ABV.
O: One of my favorite coffee beers, this is a benchmark for what others should aim for.
