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.

2018 batch. On draft at AleSmith, 5/20/18.

Pours pitch black with a small head of tan foam, residual lace, but not much.

The nose is all chocolate and coffee, but to compliment the roast there’s also a present booziness as well.

The flavors are more of the same. More roast than chocolate, but still with a good balance. It’s all thumbs up until the finish, where I get a very apparent metallic (although subtle) presence.. it falls off quickly beyond that, and left me looking for more. As it warmed, toasted malt became more evident, leaving “Baltic Porter-esque” qualities behind.

The body is light/medium, with a medium carb but a smooth finish. Slightly sticky.
