Upright Coffee Stout (Barrel Aged)


Brewed by Upright Brewing
Portland, Oregon USA
Style: Stout | Ratings: 22 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 7%
This is the first release of the brewery’s Coffee Stout. The beer started last winter as a full-bodied beer openly fermented with our house saison yeast at cool temperatures to maintain a smooth profile. It then spent most of the year maturing in four former wine casks, drying slightly. The casks were then blended with the addition of cold press coffee prepared by Chris Brady of Extracto Coffee Roasters. The finished beer is layered with flavors and aromas of ash, oak, roast, dark fruit and herbs. While intended to be enjoyed young, the Coffee Stout will also cellar well over one year. Grist: ashburne mild, dark crystal, chocolate, black, flaked barley Hops: experimental variety 06300 Also: Extracto cold press Yeast: house saison Total yield: 87 cases and 1 keg, 7% abv
