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%

Holmen1 (2546) - 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.

Sigmund (5178) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 29, 2014
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Black colour, low beige head. Moderate carbonation (might change to Guinness gas tomorrow, 80% nitrogen and 20% carbondioxide). Moderate roasty aroma, distinct notes of cold brewed coffee. Dry flavour, the Japanese kokuto black sugar must have been consumed entirely by the yeast. Coffee notes again. Certainly not a sweet stout, and maybe a bit one-dimensional, but fair enough.
