Tasting Notes:

Red Sea Rift is an imperial coffee stout showcasing the Red Sea Blend coffee bean from our friends at Jack Mormon Coffee Company. Coming from the botanical birthplace of coffee, Red Sea is a curated mix of Ethiopian and Yemen dry-processed coffee giving off bright aromas of ripe red fruits, berries and dark chocolate. This imperial stout was brewed with base malts and flaked oats from Solstice Malt as well as variety of dark roasted and caramel malts, giving the beer a rich and complex body. The freshly roasted coffee flavor is dominant up front and as the beer warms up, luscious flavors of dark and milk chocolate are more apparent thanks to the Chocolate Conspiracy organic Peruvian cocoa nibs, toasted oatmeal and lactose milk sugar. Red Sea Rift finishes velvety-smooth with a warming alcohol that will age gracefully for years to come.
