Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Notes / Commercial Description:
Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee beans are grown in the fertile soil of some of the highest Caribbean peaks, making it one of the most prized gourmet coffees in the world. This rare coffee uses lightly roasted Arabica beans to create subtle acidity and a well-balanced chocolaty finish. With the help of local roaster, Mostra Coffee, these 100% Blue Mountain beans were sourced from the renowned Mavis Bank Coffee Factory in Jamaica. Carefully roasted and cold-brewed, this coffee is the perfect complement to our award-winning Imperial Stout.

Tan head. Black color. Lots of lace. Big chocolate and coffee roast. Vanilla and caramel. Toffee. The right amount of roast is present where it isn't dry or over done. Full bodied. Well done.

This was the 4-5th speedway variant at a all Speedway tasting on 11/28. Mostly just coffee, a little bit of chocolate towards the end. Overall a good stout and glad I got to try it but wouldn't seek it out again.

From 11/28/15 notes. From our Mega-Speedway tasting.

Looks like the others but less head or carbonation evident. Pretty good with more coffee in the taste; the nose was lacking at this point. Roasted malts, lots of chocolate, and light vanilla. Thick body and low carbonation.

Overall still a good beer but not one of the better ones.

Bottle date 02/25/14, poured on 11/08/15 into a snifter. Though the coffee notes have dropped off significantly, I'm really digging this brew. Amazing head that is maintained for quite some time after the initial pour. Smooth taste. Wish I drank this one sooner.
