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.

Bomber, 2015 vintage. Strong coffee aroma with notes of bitter dark chocolate, roasted malt, lactose sugar and some vanilla. Pours dark brown with a thin light brown head that has some retention and excellent lacing. Starts with rich, bitter dark chocolate and roasted malt flavors. Finishes dry with huge roasted coffee flavors as well as a bit of lactose sugar and vanilla. Pretty good, but a huge amount coffee.

DenverLogan (1180) - LA, California, USA - MAR 1, 2017
From a 22 oz into a Het Kapittel Watou chalice. Pours dark brown with modest head and lace. Aroma of malted milk balls and subtle coffee. Significant carbonation and big mouthfeel. Flavors of dark malts, subtle Steins cane syrup, burnt caramel-maple syrup, hay, minerals, slight alcohol. Overall big, bold, intriguing ... worthy of a glass or more :)
