Remember that TBA on the specialty lineup of our 2016 availability calendar!? Well, the time has come to announce what will be filling its place: Sumatra Mountain Brown! Considering how much we love putting coffee in beer, we are pretty pumped about this one. Please join us in welcoming this imperial brown ale to the family:
Sumatra Mountain Brown gets its body from a team of malts, including Caramel malt for sweetness, flaked barley for dense foam, a bit of Chocolate malt for its deep color and Aromatic and Munich malts to add even more depth. German and Perle hops bring balance to the malty sweetness by introducing a touch of bitterness. The addition of rich Sumatra coffee takes this perfectly balanced brown ale to a decadent level. Sumatra Mountain Brown comes in at a hefty 9% ABV.
Experimenting with different flavor profiles is a huge part of who we are and there’s no denying coffee is one of our favorite ingredients. Our sterling cast of iterations of coffee beers also includes Breakfast Stout, Kentucky Breakfast Stout, Canadian Breakfast Stout and Frangelic Mountain Brown. A special hat tip to our local neighbors and friends at Ferris Coffee & Nut Co. for providing us with only the finest coffee.
Though it’s become a beloved taproom-exclusive option here at the brewery, this is the first time we’ve bottled Sumatra Mountain Brown. It’s the third release in our specialty lineup of 2016, accompanied by Imperial Stout, Curmudgeon Old Ale, reDANKulous and Breakfast Stout. See the full 2016 availability calendar here.
