Wisconsin Brewing’s Brown Robust Porter made with Barriques coffee. Blending craft beer and coffee isn’t a new idea, but getting the desired result — a coffee brew that’s smooth and flavorful from the first sip to the last drop — has remained elusive. That is, until now. #006 PORTER JOE™ is the result of a collaborative effort by WBC brewmaster Kirby Nelson and Barriques coffee master Rob Jeffries, who hit upon the perfect combination of coffee blend and brewing technique.
"It’s not so much a ’secret’ as it is the combination of the right techniques and the right brews," says Kirby. "Our #003 Brown & Robust Porter is bold and flavorful. Barriques’ special blend brings a wonderful richness with no bitter coffee aftertaste. In PORTER JOE™, those two brews compliment each other naturally."
So do the two companies. WBC is proud of our Badger State heritage. Barriques is an active and engaged member of the community. That’s a match made in locally-sourced heaven.
[Tap] Sampled at the brewery. Listed as ’Coffee Infused Brown Porter’ instead of ’Porter Joe". Made with Barriques coffee according to the bartender. Medium brown in color with off-white head. Roasted coffee and mocha in the nose. Nice coffee flavor to this beer. Milk chocolate, moderate roastiness and mild nuttiness in the taste. Even though the body is lighter than the average coffee Porter, it does blend well with the coffee. A nice beer overall!
