Left Hand Brewing (Longmont, CO) currently has a coffee ale in select Old Chicago Restaurants across the United States. The beer debuted in early February.
Left Hand De’Nile Coffee Ale is a collaboration with Allegro Coffee, and the brewery’s Ro Guenzel. The team selected Allegro’s Blue Nile Blend coffee to nuance Left Hand’s base beer, brewed with lactose.
First, Allegro’s Blue Nile BLEND coffee was hand-selected due to its intense berry and spice notes. Then, a unique recipe was created in order to best compliment the characteristics of the coffee. The result is a burnished, copper-colored brew with a white head that is the perfect equilibrium of maple, chocolate and coffee with a medium mouthfeel and a citrus aroma from Caliente and Amarillo hops.
Left Hand De’Nile Coffee Ale is available now at Old Chicago Restaurants (locator in new window) and the the brewery’s tap room.
Availability: Draft only
Release: Early February, 2015
5.5% ABV, 57 IBUs
The very highly rated Cigar City Caffe Americano Double Stout is aged in rum barrels. Bottles of the barrel aged offering have been previously available. Now, it looks like the non-barrel aged base beer will be making a bottle appearance.
Cigar City Caffe Americano Double Stout is an imperial stout, brewed with coffee, cacao nibs, and vanilla beans.
Traditional Caffe Americano is made by adding water to espresso. We break all the rules with this Double Stout. We refuse to add water to our beer after fermentation, but have no issues adding beer to our espresso. This deep, dark stout exhibits rich espresso and coffee notes, which are contributed by the generous use of roasted barley and locally masted espresso. That simply is not enough for us. We also add masted, raw chocolate and a hint of vanilla to this big bodied stout. Dodge the red eye and take a shot of the dark.
Cigar City Caffe Americano Double Stout will be available in 22oz bottles. This beer has not been announced by the brewery. Beer Street Journal has contacted the brewery for more information.
The second release in Terrapin’s Reserve Series – Cinnamon Roll’d Wake-n-Bake will make a return again in 2015. The base beer is the coffee oatmeal stout with a cinnamon-y twist. You get both in abundance.
The Beer Street Journal video above is was done at the time of the 2013 release with Dustin Watts, VP of Terrapin marketing. Before the Cinnamon Roll’d return, look for Maggie’s Blackberry Cobbler, and Tiramisu-Hoo to join the Reserve Series.
Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Coffee, Cinnamon)
Availability: 22oz bombers, Waxed. Limited Draft.
Arrival: December, 2015
