Rho – Lotus and Oberon (Imperial Stout - 10.0% ABV) Imperial Coffee Stout with a touch of maple syrup and lactose). In Science, the symbol most often used for density is ρ (the lower case Greek letter Rho). We used the Rho grain bill to create a stout with a dense mouthfeel and a dialed back bitterness. To help elevate this into a coffee stout, we worked closely with Mike and the experts at Mostra Coffee. Mostra Coffee is an artisan micro-roasting company that sources, roasts, brews, and serves only high-grade specialty coffee. Mostra was recently named a top three finalist for Roaster of the Year 2019 from Roast Magazine, and won Best Original Cold Brew and Best Signature Cold Brew at the Cold Brew City Competition.
Collectively, we chose a blend of unique washed single origin ‘Vietnam Lotus’ coffee, which has notes of dark chocolate, date, baking spice, butterscotch while ‘Brazil Oberon’ is chocolate and nutty. This viscous stout was further conditioned on maple syrup and lactose to complement and round the distinct notes of these unique beans
Rho pours jet black with a saturated caramel colored head. This Lotus and Oberon coffee create an extremely integrated and well-balanced beer. Its aroma is dark chocolate, roasted coffee, caramel, butterscotch, and sugar. The taste is a milky dark chocolate, coffee, maple, and a lingering coffee backbone with light bitterness. It is silky, creamy, and viscous.
You will receive one sealed and unopened bottle, of the above, in a brand new single bottle shipper!
