When you've got both a brewery and a coffee roaster onsite, you've got to combine the two, right? And that's what the Rogue Wave team has done with its seasonal Ink Stout: added some cold drip coffee brewed onsite into a beer.
The coffee aromas are really quite lovely, with the extract drawing out the sweeter side of the beans and lending the beer an after dinner liqueur like character. There's heaps of chocolate amid its opaque black body too, with a restrained bitterness finishing things off.
