Notes: Our second collab with Parlor Coffee is OG Estate, a 10% Wheated Imperial Stout with Guatemala Pulcal Coffee. The coffee is harvested from one of the original major coffee estates in Guatemala – a multi-generational operation dating back to the 1800’s. Parlor’s roast of these amazing beans have a deep sweetness, with a caramel apple accent that comes from baking spice and tropical fruit acidity. To honor and accentuate these characteristics we've developed a base beer with a luscious mouthfeel that imparts accents of roast and chocolate, but remains in balance with the coffee.

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a finger high dark beige head that left a large patch of bubbles on the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of chocolate are present in the nose.
T: The taste has lots of flavors of chocolate along with notes of coffee beans. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is exceptionally easy to drink and has rich flavors of chocolate and coffee and has no traces of alcohol whatsoever. It would definitely make for an excellent breakfast beer.

Served in a red wine glass from the can.

Appearance: Thick dark brown to black color with a dark tan head rising pretty thick but dropping to about a notch below a finger's length. Stickiness left on the glass before first sip.

Smell: Light coffee bean aroma, smells good but lacks potency.

Taste: Creamy coffee with brown sugar consistant with half-and-half to give it that extra creamy taste. It's a touch sweet and is a borderline milk stout.

Mouth: Sticky beer, the body isn't super thick like most stouts but the after taste of a dessert like beer is very good.

Overall: very good beer. I personally think better to share though considering the touch sweetbess it carries to the body. Salud!

a delicious collaboration with parlor coffee, whose cold brew impressed me at mikkeller nyc, and whose coffee in the beer geek parlor edition was also fantastic. this was one of my favorite beers from our visit to the brewery, a big wheated imperial stout with some special coffee from guatemala that these guys provide. its immediately obvious to me that this coffee too is very high quality, its earthy and medium roasty in the nose, with dry cocoa and dried fruit characteristics like a good pull of espresso, nuances of leather and tobacco make it wintery and warming, and the fuller, wheaty, deeply roasty stout is a nice backdrop on which to feature these beans. there is a low degree of bitterness from the coffee here, most of that seems to come from the grain, which is much darker and deeper than the java seems to be. faint licorice and anise in the nose, a sweeter raisin element in the taste, the coffee seems to add body too, rather than take it away with any acidity, i think the wheat in the base beer is nice for that too, they work in tandem really well throughout this. its rich without having much sweetness, and its complex for only having the coffee added. this is an expertly made beer with a cool ingredient, exactly the reason i have stayed so high on mikkeller all these years. probably objectively the best beer we had from the nyc brewery, that or darn near it. this was divine, i want this coffee on its own too!
