COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AleSmith Brewing Company and Mostra Coffee are excited to announce our collaboration for AleSmith’s next single varietal Speedway Stout. Local coffee roaster, Mostra Coffee, has carefully roasted and cold brewed Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee beans to complement our award winning Speedway Stout. Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee beans are grown in the fertile soil of some of the highest Caribbean peaks, making it one of the most prized gourmet coffees in the world. This rare coffee uses lightly roasted Arabica beans to create a subtle acidity and well-balanced chocolaty finish. Thanks to Mosta’s diligent work, these 100% Blue Mountain beans were sourced from the renowned Mavis Bank Coffee Factory in Jamaica.

En fût à la brasserie. Tout est bien aiguisé dans cette version, moins bien équilibré. L’apport mocha est assez présentet la finale torréfiée très pointue.

Tasting with the crew. Really dug the sharp more acidic in your face coffee treatment of the Blue Mtn. Big bitter chocolate, dark chocolate and bold roast. Lovely.

Bottle shared with the crew and in conjunction with regular speedway, vietnamese, and BA speedway. The coffee here is definitely bigger and badder than regular speedway with a more acidic and bittersweet chocolate presence. I was worried we waited too long to drink these and that the coffee would be gone, not the case. Creamy texture and sweet milk chocolate flavors. Really nice.

Marsiblursi (3046) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2014
(Bottle) Pours black with brown head. The aroma coffee up front with notes of gravel and heavy roast. Undertones of dark chocolate, fruits, chilly and alcohol. The flavour is light sweet, medium bitter and tiny acidic. Coffe, roasted malt and balanced hops. The mouthfeel is soft but surprisingly slim with a light carbonation. Roasted and fruity aftertaste. Medium to full bodied.
