Coffee and Oatmeal Stout
A rich, full-flavoured stout with a powdery
dry chocolate mouthfeel.
Perfect for the long winter evenings!
The fifth annual release of our winter seasonal Coffee and Oatmeal Stout is now upon us, which means Christmas can’t be far away!
A classic oatmeal stout made with oats from Flahavan’s Mills in Kilmacthomas which is infused with coffee from Badger and Dodo in Fermoy, this annual release generally signifies the beginning of the yultide season for many.
Working with with Brock Lewin from Badger and Dodo boutique coffee roasters, each year we choose a different coffee to use in the beer. Brock roasts the beans fresh for us and each year chooses a different bean to go into the stout to give a different flavour element to it for each release and advises on preparation of the coffee.
This year, working with Brock again, the coffee we decided to use is filter brewed Guatemalan Finca Velasquez -with chocolate and caramel flavours to work with the roastiness of the stout, while apple and orange acidity lift the whole flavour of the beer.
Tasting notes: A rich, full-flavoured stout with a powdery dry chocolate mouthfeel. Smoothness from the oats adds balance to the roasted bitterness while in the background there’s a subtle hint of the earthy coffee flavours which leads to a dry coffee finish.
