The latest beer, a coffee stout porter, is now in bottles. In two weeks, it’ll be ready to drink.
But that didn’t stop me from trying it tonight. Take a look at it in the mug:
Nice and dark. The way I like my beers: opaque.
The addition of ground coffee to the second fermentation may have been a bit much. The coffee flavor is very pronounced. Not a nice “hint” or “suggestion,” this coffee is in your face.
It reminds me of a bit of the failed Starbucks/Pepsi attempt at cold carbonated coffee drink called Mazagran. (Remember that short-lived experiment?)
Of course my cold coffee beverage has around 5.5% alcohol by volume. 🙂
If you quaff if, you can pick up the nice molasses notes. I hope the coffee decreases and the porter profile increases in the bottle conditioning.
Thanks to everyone the played my name the porter game. Larry Hehn wins again but there were so many great suggestions, I’m going to have to brew many more coffee porters!
Overall, not the best beer I’ve brewed. But definitely drinkable!
