COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
COFFEE:
GUATEMALAN COFFEE AGED IN BOURBON BARRELS

MALTS:
TWO ROW - DARK CHOCOLATE - MUNICH - PALE CHOCOLATE - MIDNIGHT WHEAT - FLAKED BARLEY - C170 - CARAPILS

Modern Times is the first brewery/roastery in the world to make beer with barrel-aged coffee beans. The barrel-aged coffee adds layer upon layer of rich bourbon, oak, and vanilla character to the underlying nutty, floral, full-bodied Guatemalan coffee. As a result, City of the Dead is an outrageously complex and flavorful stout, even though the beer itself has not spent any time in barrels. You can buy yourself a bag of our house-roasted barrel-aged beans - and even sign up for a coffee subscription - at moderntimesmerch.com.

10-09-17 // draft, tasting paddle at BrewDog Shoreditch. Deep Brown, small beige head. Loads of coffee, first in the nose than in the Aroma. Along with roasted malts, bitter chocolate. Coffee bitter finish. Great.

Aromat mocno odstaje od smaku w tym piwie. Co do aromatu to jest to niezbyt udane cold brew, czyli bogactwo fasoli i bobu. W smaku ta kawa jest już świetna i zdecydowanie idzie w stronę dojrzałego, wysuszonego orzecha włoskiego. Poza tym jest mega gładkie, ideał dla swojego stylu jeśli chodzi o odczucie w ustach. Zdecydowanie piwo zdominowane przez kawę, świetną w smaku i słabą w aromacie.

Draft. Pours a medium, retained, light beige head, with light lacing, over a clear dark brown (SRM 35) body.......nose is roasted malts with cocoa, chocolate, coffee, mild vanilla, whiskey hints.......taste is cocoa, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, oak, mild whiskey, with light caramel sweet hints, finishing moderately coffee, hop bitter......mouth feel, medium body, mild alcohol heat, moderate carbonation. This is a lovely, complex beer in both aroma and flavor, which is appropriate for the time of year, and is easy drinking. BJCP 8/3/16/4/7

22floz bottle, BOD: 08.17.2017, thx olibeer, mug glass. Appears near black in color with a small brown head. Smells like used coffee grains and has a fairly boozy underpinning too. The concept is different with coffee in bourbon barrels. I didn't inquire into the process, but after thinking about it, I'm left to wonder if all this means is that ground coffee sat around in these barrels for a while before being added to this beer. Carob and coffee that has been on the warmer too long are what I taste in a hearty and gritty palate. Decent, but found it be a rougher ride than expected.

Draft pour at Cooper's Alehouse, Seattle. A near black pour, slight ruby tint. Coffee roast forward aroma. Inviting. Morning time feel. A bit of a mocha flavor. Good chocolate presence. Toasty malt. Medium thickness for a stout. Coffee bean like lingering bitterness, but with a mellowing caramel note. Good stout overall. Would love this in an AM setting.

Cooper’s, Seattle. Lacing brown gray head on darkest cola brown. Nose of muddy malt and coffee. Fair stout, bitter malt, touch of burnt coffee. Licorice. Not bad, but but exactly my favorite profile.
