I love stout. I don’t drink coffee. And I’m not all that fond of lactose in beer. But Eventide’s new Cup of Excellence Coffee Milk Stout is an exception, mostly because it manages to strike a balance between bitter, sweet and coffee.
Brewed with chocolate, Special B and biscuit malts, and roasted barely, plus Counter Culture cold brewed coffee, it’s deep, dark black color has a tinge of red. Not surprisingly, aromas and flavors of chocolate and coffee are predominate, with a soft bitterness from Columbus and English Fuggles hops.
I say drink Cup of Excellence at brunch, or after dinner with creamy or chocolatey desserts, like cheesecake, chocolate cream pie or a fudge brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
