Our latest Brewhouse One Release is brewed in collaboration with our friends Rochester Brewing & Coffee right here in the crossroads. It is a blend of two different types of whiskey barrels, 60% in rye barrels and 40% in whiskey barrels with maple added at the finish. Our team selected the barrels and we let the coffee experts pick the perfect blend of beans, which happened to be their Rochester Original blend featuring beans from Guatemala and Brazil.
The result is Double Barrel Aged Imperial Maple Coffee Stout. A mouthful to be sure, but then, so is the beer. Clocking in at 13.4% abv the beer is buzz worthy in more than one way. Spicy rye up front, tempered by the subtle addition of maple. While the coffee is bright and floral and not typical of a coffee chosen for a barrel aged beer, the body of the blended beer supports a coffee that is lightly roasted.
