COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AleSmith Brewing Company and Mostra Coffee are excited to announce our collaboration for AleSmiths next single varietal Speedway Stout. Local coffee roaster, Mostra Coffee, has carefully roasted and cold brewed Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee beans to complement our award winning Speedway Stout. Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee beans are grown in the fertile soil of some of the highest Caribbean peaks, making it one of the most prized gourmet coffees in the world. This rare coffee uses lightly roasted Arabica beans to create a subtle acidity and well-balanced chocolaty finish. Thanks to Mostas diligent work, these 100% Blue Mountain beans were sourced from the renowned Mavis Bank Coffee Factory in Jamaica.

Bouteille 75cl, anno 2014, bottled 02/25/2014. De couleur brune fonce, col crmeux caf au lait laissant un lger dor au verre. Arme au nez plaisant de torrfi, caf est trs bien plac et gnreux, retrouve un grill en rtro-nasal, pointe de fruits noirs et de baies bleues ainsi quune note de sucr rsiduel. Palais est complexe mettant en avant un malt raffin alternant entre grill, chocolat, avec un complment caf qui perdure chaque gorge. Petite note rappelant la mlasse avec un effet de chaleur arrivant en fin de bouche. Petite pointe pice du caf sans pour cela indiquer que ce dernier semble tre pass de date. Le tout reste pais, crmeux et soyeux en bouche.

Bottle. Dark mahogany with a light mocha head that fades very quickly to a ring around the glass. Good lord that is a lot of coffee in a beer...some roasted malts too with a fair amount of chocolate, vanilla bean, some booze towards the end (which means it is pretty well hidden given the %) with a moderate carbonation and full body. Cant get over how the coffee infuses everything from start to end, very unique, curious if its the coffee, the process, the amount of coffee or something else.

Bottle, vintage 2014. Viscous black pour, mocha head, and nice lacing. Aroma, man, full disclaimer, I really like coffee, but wow does this ever smell great. Loads of earthy coffee roast, chocolate, and vanilla. Taste is more or less the same as the aroma, with rich coffee roast up front, followed by a hint of vanilla and a bitter roast finish. This is over two years old, its a big coffee beer, and its tasting fantastic with loads of coffee flavour, I dont know how these guys do it!

From SF: pours black oily color, clear, with brown foamy head. Visually low carbonation. Aroma: rich roasted dark malts aroma, which takes on coffee, bittersweet chocolate, molasses, milk chocolate, coffee, coffee, Coffee...vanilla, cocoa beans, dark fruits.... Flavor is very similar: prevails flavors of roasted malts, with notes mentioned above, with rich note of coffee, but still very, very well balanced with all other ingrediends, with hint of charcoal, and supported with hop flavor, which takes on dark fruits. Malt sweetness is high, hop bitterness also, evident in finish. Finish is slightly bitter sweet. Body is full, alcohol warmth is gentle noticeable, but not 12%! Texture is velvetly soft, carbonation is low. What a beer! But still I prefer normal/official version.

750ml bottle enjoyed @ home, thanks to Yeaster. Pours pitch black with a small beige head. Aroma is plenty of cold brewed coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, vanilla, coconut, liquorice root and green pepper. Flavour is light sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish is heayy roasted malt and lots of cold brewed coffee. Coffee dominates almost everything and a hint of coconut.
