El Velorio Imperial Porter
Second Self Beer Co., Atlanta
Available on draft and in 16- ounce cans for a limited time
Second Self teamed up pop-up restaurant My Abuelas and coffee roaster Slow Wave Coffee to create this hot chocolate-inspired Imperial Porter made with beans from Julian Coffee Roasters and Cortes Sweet Chocolate.
The result is a big, dark-roasted, 9% beer that has lots of the bittersweet coffee and chocolate flavors and aromas you’d expect, along with quickly dissipating carbonation under foamy brown head.
If you’re looking for a cheap thrill, trying pouring El Velorio into to a big coffee mug, and pair it with cake doughnuts or churros for dunking.
