Free State Mocha Stout


Formerly brewed at Free State Brewing Company
Lawrence, Kansas USA
Style: Stout | Ratings: 7 | Alcohol: -
We've done another collaboration with La Prima Tazza next door who supplied the coffee for this double barrelled stout. Coffee beans and roasted malts share many flavor characteristics. They both have roasted and slightly bitter flavors but each also brings special flavors from the original grain and bean. We have found a fine balance between the two in this beer which showcases equally the flavors and aromas of both. About 5 gallons of cold processed coffee from La Prima Tazza were added to a batch of this special stout (it is its own unique brew, designed specifically to blend with the coffee). The coffee used is the same espresso blend that Prima Tazza uses for their iced coffee drinks. Served unfiltered.
O.G. 14.4/1058, hops - 27.5 IBUs
