COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brew Morning Coffee Stout once a year for release in late winter / early spring. Each year the recipe differs as does the coffee we use to craft this phenomenal brew. Morning Coffee Stout 2009 combines a blend of three roasted malts, roasted barley and Japanese kokuto (black sugar) with Tully’s Holiday Roast (Guatemala Cupper Reserve) coffee that is cold brewed and added to the stout just at packaging. The secondary fermentation and maturation that occurs post-packaging produces a hybrid stout-coffee elixir that is, in a word, divine. 2006 version at 6.4%. 2009 version at 7%

willisread (476) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 15, 2015
On tap at Naka Meguro Taproom. 2015 version with coffee from Hug Coffee roasters. Pours an ink jet black with a modest tan head that dissipates fairly quickly. Vanilla, chocolate malts and roasted coffee notes on the nose. Taste is ridiculously smooth with the chocolate jumping out first followed by the vanilla and roasted coffee bitter finish. Reminiscent of a mocha latte with vanilla. Slightly creamy mouthfeel with a medium to full body. Smooth finish that is bittersweet. This drinks like a lower alcohol version of Ballast Point’s Victory at Sea. Seriously good coffee stout.

jc1762 (133) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 8, 2015
On tap into a small shaker showing thick black translucent rims and sparse foam. The nose shows strong notes of heavily roasted ground coffee and burnt bread. The palate is full bodied with very even carbonation, a strong coffee tartness that is apparent from the outset, strong coffee bitterness on the finish, and a prominent dark chocolate profile showing upon warming up.

Holmen1 (3202) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2014
Første gang jeg får et japansk øl på fat på Cardinal! M2 sep-14: en helt fantastisk god kaffearoma, og et flott beige skum som varer. Iflg beskrivelsen ligger der en omfattende prosess og spennende råvarer bak dette ølet, men smaken innfrir ikke, til det er den for tynn og kortvarig. Tørr avslutning.
