San Diego, CA
Chocolate coffee stout brewed with toasted coconut and cocoa nibs added.
Lots of delicious coffee and chocolate aromas. Coconut blends well creating a creamy vanilla smell. All the aromas blend in just the right way, giving it a wonderful aroma.
A very dark brown/black color. This beer has a nice brown head, good retention. Looks more or less like black coffee after a while.
It's just what you would except with this beer, just like the aroma. Plenty of black coffee that isn't particularly acidic, milk chocolate, mild earthy bitterness, even a little bit of dark fruit. The coconut complements the coffee well, which says something as the coffee is quite dominant in the base beer.
Medium carbonation, good malt character, light hops, finish is coconut and chocolate. Very easy drinker, and excellent.
Chocolate cover almonds, chocolate coffee gelato, chocolate chip cookies, anything chocolate...
Very nice rendition on one of my new favorite coffee stouts. Modern Times consistently does coffee beers like no other brewery I've discovered. It's an amazing mix of all flavors. It packs great flavor in an easy drinker. They hit all of what they strive for! A great tasting beer, low OG, and low alcohol. This is the first 10/10 for a reason. Great job! Now I want to buy them all! I would highly recommend this beer for all drinkers.
