The quality of the cold brewed coffee that goes into Texas Exile is important to us. That’s why we hooked up with MA coffee roaster Barismo. These guys are as serious about coffee as we are about beer. About 33 gallons of cold brewed coffee goes into each batch of Texas Exile right before fermentation, adding the perfect compliment to the brown sugar and oatmeal flavors of this huge imperial porter. Breakfast just got a punch in the neck.

22 oz. Pours a dark brown with a nice mocha colored head. Sticky lacing. Very slow and thick pour. Aroma of roasted coffee and caramel. Taste is dominated by roasted coffee. Nice caramel sweetness and hints of unsweetened cocoa. Bitter coffee balanced with nice oats and sweet caramel. A hint of spice on the finish. Lingering coffee grounds left on the palate. Sticky on the lips. Nice medium body. Definitely not as thick as the pour. Very balanced. A nice strong porter.

Big smoky spicy beer. Dark dark pour. Huge coffee and roasted malts in nose. Aroma adds a touch of spice, but still a lot of roasted heavy malts. Full bodied. Light carbonation. Pretty good stuff.

chinchill (1392) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Brash texas exile "ale brewed with coffee." Mercury brewing. Light brown head over a near black body. Lacing coats the glass. Pleasantly boozy aftertaste. Coffee and caramel dominate the aroma which also has a hint of toffee. Coffee and dark roasted malts dominate the flavor, with good balance ~ meaning the roasted grains dominate the coffee. The coffee is obvious but not overdone in the lingering aftertaste either. Rich but a bit lacking in complexity. O: very good. 10.5% ABV is very well hidden.

crazyvin (1861) - New York, USA - MAR 16, 2014
A deep dark black body with a brown coating of a head. Some lacing. Aroma had a strong roasted malt profile initially. A presence of leather, coffee and alcohol were also strong points. Flavor had a great balance of roasted malts and bittersweet chocolate. Coffee was a strong presence in the aftertaste. Alcohol seemed to enhance this. Finish was dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
