Project Blue Mountain (09/2020) | Equilibrium Brewery
Style: Stout - Imperial / Double Coffee
Description: We took our two favorite barrels of the base stout that eventually became Swiss Bliss and allowed them to further mature for a total time of more than 17 months to meld and develop with oak, char, and its former Buffalo Trace occupant. Our relationship with Mostra sparks creativity. We have worked on beers, beans, experiences, and events together and embrace the true art of collaboration being producing something more than the sum of its parts. When Mike asked us if we had just the right BA stout to showcase some of his rare coffees, we immediately said YES. We selected a single barrel of our pair to add just one thing: Mostra Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee. This beer is a culmination of time, trust, friendship, collaboration, barrel, and coffee. Project JBM pours a thick pitch black with a tan head. Notes of creamy chopped bakers chocolate, caramel, barrel-genesis marshmallow, oak and bourbon, are interwoven with a full, sophisticated, rich, nutty coffee aroma that waft up from the pour. Flavors of decadent fudge, full bodied pure drip coffee, and American oak are integrated into a silky and luxurious mouthfeel with backend flavors of tobacco and leather, in a great barrel forward finish that maximizes flavors in a straightforward manor.
