This is an imperial black wheat infused with a custom blend of Sumatran coffee from Alterra (a roaster in Milwaukee).
As opposed to an imperial stout with coffee, the black wheat base really allows the fantastic coffee flavor to shine through this beer. The aroma emanates with a wonderful scent of a bold coffee roast. Through the first sip you get some very nice roasty characters along with a fair amount of sweetness. There is a subtle fruitiness that comes forward in the middle of the sip here as well. Finishes with little to no astringency.
Overall, a very unique and delicious coffee beer. Lighter bodied and smoother than most coffee stouts, but also well balanced between the roasty character and the sweetness of the brew.
