This 10% ABV Imperial Coffee Porter is the base beer we used when making Vanilla Storm. We really like the big Kona and Sumatra coffee flavors of this beer and want to give you the opportunity to try it along side Vanilla Storm. We picked our coffee blend to provide a rich, complex, dessert-like flavor profile that complements the base Imperial Porter. We used a technique known as "cold steeping" to bring out the coffee flavors without introducing burnt, acrid or heavy roast flavors common in other coffee beers. The beer leads with coffee (of course), toffee, chocolate and some spiciness. The mid-palate is sweet with chocolate notes (partially from the coffee and dark malts). The finish is dry, smooth and somewhat roasty with minimal alcohol warming.
