With Huehuetenango coffee.
Questa birra è una Ale, di colore ambrato scarico ad alta fermentazione prodotta utilizzando malti e luppoli tipici inglesi. La particolarità assoluta di questa birra sta nell’utilizzo innovativo del caffe Huehuetenango in chicchi, tostati e non. Il prodotto finale avrà note spiccate di caffe appena fatto, in un colore marrone tonaca di frate. Pur avendo al palato le note classiche di una tradizionale birra, spicca al naso e nel retrogusto un timbro netto di caffè aromatico quale è il Huehuetenango.
This beer is an ale, amber-colored discharge high fermentation produced using traditional English malts and hops. The particularity of this beer is absolutely innovative in the use of Huehuetenango coffee beans, toasted or not. The final product will be marked notes of fresh coffee in a brown robe of a monk. Although the palate the notes of a classic traditional beer, stands on the nose and aftertaste of a stamp net of aromatic coffee which is the Huehuetenango

(bottle - 330 ml) Clear copper color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is rich and full of coffee. Lots of coffee and some sweet malts. Flavor is bitter at the beginning with a nice roasted coffee flavor. The middle has a mild nutty and caramel flavor with a bitter and roasted coffee ground finish. I really liked it.

Cloudy brown color; gushing bottle; medium head. The coffee aroma is very nice, real, with some malt too. It has a medium-light structure, a dry mouthfeel, the coffee flavor is still good, pretty much like an espresso, but this burnt feeling grows at the end and I don’t like it too much; aftertaste of candy liquorice. Well done, quite extreme in it’s style, but not for me.

On tap at the Brick Store. Pours a hazy tea-like brown with a small bubbly tan head that retreats quickly to a small collar with bubbles coming up to the top. The aroma is an interesting mix of heavily toasted malts, coffee and some light spices. The coffee is certainly not overpowering and there seems to be a bit of oak in the nose as well, though maybe I’m making that up. The taste starts out with a slightly more sweet caramel malt flavor with a heavy spice kick. The toasted malts are big in the backbone and carry through the finish where it mixes with the slightly bitter coffee presence. The mouthfeel is light bodied and overcarbonated. Reminds me of drinking a soda actually. Well, I knew it would be unique when I saw it was Italian as the Brick Store seems to get all kinds of oddball stuff from there. It’s got a decent aroma and flavor but the mouthfeel really does hurt my overall impression of the beer. I may try a bottle version of this one to see if the carbonation is less of a problem.
