Brewer's Tasting Notes:
Base Beer with Bird Rock Black Gold Coffee
“Starts with Sweet Caramel, Roasted Coffee and Chocolatey Overtones. Very viscous mouth feel with a dark chocolate and nutty finish.”
Bourbon Barrel Aged with Chocolate, Hazelnut & Mostra Brazilian Coffee
“A whole dose of dark chocolate and nuttiness from the cocoa nib and hazel nutty additions. The Brazilian Roast used in these this complements the flavors used and is added by the slight vanilla and caramel of the Cutwater Bourbon barrels it was aged. A complex and rich beer.”
Barrels: Cutwater Bourbon
Bourbon Barrel Aged with Vanilla Beans and Mostra Indonesian Coffee
“A double dose of Vanilla in this thick stout from the bourbon barrels and whole vanilla beans. These flavors are aided by the earthy and sweet cedar notes of the Indonesian Roast with play very with the dark chocolate in the base beer.”
Rum Barrel Aged with Coconut and Mostra Costa Rican Coffee
“The sweet coconut is forward in this offering and meshes nicely with chocolate and sweet wood of the coffee and rum barrels it was aged in. Markably different from the other variations, this beer hits with a punch and lets you know it is a rum barrel aged beer but at the same time is remarkably approachable”
