COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Parabajava ia an ongoing series exploring the infusion of coffee into our Parabola Barrel Aged Imperial Series. This first offering is a collaboration with the famed Intelligentsia Coffee Company, utilizing their El Diablo espresso blend. This beer was crated for our June 16th Fathers Day brunch at Lot 213 in L.A. The coffee brings intense coffee house espress aroma - roasty carmel, toffee, molasses and fresh ground coffee notes. The flavor melds well with the big rich character of the stout - complementary roasty flavors, dark bakers chocolate, and more caramel which pairs well with Parabolas rich malt and smokey oak bourbon notes. The finish is amazingly smooth and integrated. Im pretty stoked on the results!
