COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Da Grind Buzz Kona Coffee Imperial Stout is an assertive, rich and hearty dark stout complemented by freshly roasted 100 percent Kona coffee. The stout style is a Russian Imperial stout, historically brewed strong to survive its long voyage from London to the Baltic region. Course ground dark roast 100 percent pure Kona coffee beans were added to the brew during the aging process. The beans were grown and harvested by Cornwell Estate in Holualoa. The brewers were able to watch freshly harvested beans being roasted before transporting them to the brewhouse and adding them to the batch. The beer will be served on nitrogen, giving a smooth, creamy mouth-feel that complements the roasted coffee flavor.

Nearly black in color with a tan head. Great coffee aroma. Roasted malt flavors like coffee and chocolate predominate on the palate. Hop bitterness comes in at the mid-palate and lingers on the finish. Full body. Great beer.

Deep brown with ahuge dense beige head. Cool and delicious flavor. Mostly dark roasted malt. The coffee takes a backseat, I think, unless their coffee is just that good.

Aurelius (5335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2016
Inky, medium khaki head. Very nice, nutty, chickory aroma. Flavor is all coffee and was a little disappointing on the heels of the aroma. Some creosote. Mouthy. On tap, St George Island Brewfest with LuckyDog.

AWISLguy (3109) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2016
Growler from Vine & Barley in Port St Lucie. Big espresso. Sweet cocoa. Caramel. This is richly roasty and quite raw. So much espresso that it is a touch peppery. 14.4

Travlr (24691) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Draft at Koko Marina. Opaque maroon brown color, massive tan head with good retention and sold lacing. Aroma of earthy coffee grounds. Taste has tons of earthy coffee, but it retains its beery characteristics and body. Nice.

On tap @ the brewery in Kona, with an abridged monicker of simply "Kona Coffee Imperial Stout". Nearly black, thin tan head. Rich, intense coffee aroma and flavour backed by hearty malt structure. Very tasty.
