COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When we first tasted Amaya Roasting Company’s coffee, it was love at first sip. Their thoughtful approach to flavor theory & dedication to crafting the perfect cup inspired collaboration. The name pays homage to the Sunset Coffee Building, perched on the banks of the Buffalo Bayou in 1910. Back in the day, it was one of the first places to import & roast the coffee that fueled our great city’s early pioneers.

Pours a dark, nearly black brown with a beige head. It has a chocolatey coffee aroma. The flavor starts off strong espresso complimented nicely by the lingering bitterness of the hops.

Draft. Black with a small tan head. Very cold so not mix nose. Flavors bounce off the tongue with coffee and toffee up front. Burnt malts on the end. Body is a little chewy with a nice solid finish. Well done.

Bottle says it was bottled 9 months ago but I just bought it...uh oh. Pours jet black with fizzy tan head. Smell is acidic coffee. Roast malt, fair amount of yeast and light hops. Taste is roasty, hoppy but not too much so. Bitter coffee and charred malt flavor with a bright metallic like hop flavor peeking through roastiness. Medium full body and very prickly carbonation. Alcohol is hidden well.

On tap at Crowbar. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong roast and coffee bean. Thin mouthfeel with a light roast nuttiness and light coffee bean in the finish. Good.
