Inspired by the delightful combination of whiskey, sugar and coffee. However, you donít have to be Irish and it doesnít have to be morning to enjoy this labor of love. Our Imperial Stout was aged in whiskey barrels, then blended with a big Milk Stout, and finally infused with locally roasted cold-pressed coffee. Itís a complex beer meant to be shared with friends over an Irish toast.

Black color with a small head. Strong Kaluha aroma: coffee, sugar, booze. Solid coffee flavor, at times seemed a bit stale. Very light roasty character. Light vanilla and alcohol.

piscator34 (2182) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle shared with oakbluff. Near black in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of whiskey, milk chocolate, vanilla, and light roast coffee. Flavors are a sweetish blend of coffee, whiskey and chocolate. Everything blends together really well here. Not a whole lot of sharp edges here. Iím not missing the heavier roast or hop notes that one would typically find in a bigger stout like this. Well done.

Freshly tapped firkin at Keeganís with "special ingredients"....(Jameson Irish Whisky). 10 oz glass pours coffee black with an off white head and nice lacing. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and butterscotch. Flavor is creamy and rich, semi sweet, with a slight alcohol finish. Wow!

TimE (4347) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 23, 2014
Dark brown color. Quick dissipating off white head. As soon as the beer is poured out of the bottle it show massive massive sweet lactic roasted malt character. The milk stout is evident even before it hits my glass. The nose shows more bourbon notes with some dark chocolate, but still dominated by the milk stout. Big malty backbone, sweet, bourbon notes. Lots of dark chocolate. excellent.

Damn - whiskey coffee stout to the dome. Smooth, silky, well balanced. Whiskey is nicely integrated in the finished product. Like a baileys beer.

One of my favorite Lift Bridge beers. Seasonal bomber tasting of coffee, vanilla, and cream. The coffee taste is not overwhelming. Excellent Beer.

Bomber. Black with a mocha cap and medium lacing. Vanilla, cream, soft whiskey and coffee, malts, and wood. Taste has a vanilla bean ice cream sweetness with a woody dry finish. Body is heavier with a creamy feel. One of the best brews from Lift Bridge.
