BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bottle Logic Brewing
California, United States
bottlelogic.com

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 13.40%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our legendary Breakfast Stout returns this year with two epic power-ups: Vermont maple syrup was added right into the brew for a beam of subtle sweetness against the earthy bitterness of barrel-aged Coldbot Coffee beans! As in 2016's batch, this viscous 13.4% beast was aged in bourbon barrels with just a handful of Madagascar vanilla beans and will be finished on cacao nibs and Coldbot Coffee's Salvadorian + Guatemalan coffee beans.

On tap at Brewery
Looks good! Think, with dark tan head
Coffee prominent on nose. Not much of other adjuncts
Palate similar. Good but maple is overpowered

Tasty for sure, just wanted more balanced and subtle flavor

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2018, Yellow Session. Lots of cacao, ice cream and dark malts on the aroma. Taste has sweet cacao, fudge, caramel, bourbon and toffee. Well balanced, smooth coffee finish with medium bitterness.

Let my 2017 sit out for 9 months in my closet. It was insane, fudgey, chocolatey, nice mouth feel and great coffee that did become muted over time (I prefer that). One of my favorites.

MAPLE! Bourbon, maple, chocolate and vanilla goodness. For how high the ABV is, it did not taste boozy in the slightest. It certainly packs a punch but its pretty sneaky about it. Big fan of BL (when I can get it) and this did not disappoint at all!
