About

Coffee & Ice Cream Ale

6% ABV Roaster: Quarter Horse

Coffee: Brazil - Fazenda Sertão Yellow Bourbon

Our influence here is the classic Italian Affogato, where the combination of full flavoured bitter espresso meets silky sweet vanilla. Quarter Horse Coffee worked with us to develop a Brazilian roast beyond where we would usually pitch it for drinking. We wanted to push the chocolate, coffee and roast notes to give us impact in the final beer. The base beer here is pale, fermented to leave a touch of residual sugar and then loaded up with lactose to offer ice-cream like body and the perception of sweetness. Vanilla goes in for the full ice-cream affect, as well as Cypress wood. The wood spirals lend a nice undertone of vanilla wafer that complements the beer, but also gives us complexity and a rounded character that completely balances the beer. All this works with the coffee to create a unique, style-defying drink that we hope will fascinate and delight. Recommended food pairing: Biscotti, of course!
