AleSmith is proud to celebrate its 20th year with an exceptional list of unique and award-winning beers to be released as part of our 2015 Specialty Release Series. The lineup will kick off with our much anticipated collaboration with Mikkeller.
Special thanks to Mostra Coffee for sourcing premium, fair-trade 100% wild Kopi Luwak coffee for this collaborative brew. Mostra developed a medium roast coffee to bring out flavor notes of chocolate, earth, and grapefruit peel, accompanied by the aroma of wet wood and unroasted hazelnuts.
BEER GEEK SPEEDWAY IMPERIAL OATMEAL STOUT
This beer is the culmination of the efforts of two world-class brewers to create the most vitalizing coffee stout in the world. AleSmith and good friend Mikkeller join forces, blending the legendary Speedway Stout and Beer Geek Brunch Weasel together into one massive Imperial Oatmeal Stout with enough coffee and oats to substitute for your weekend brunch.
A beer of this magnitude requires a robust coffee with enough backbone to compliment the roasty and dark malt flavors; Kopi Luwak Coffee is the perfect choice. These coveted coffee beans are selected for their ripeness and quality by the Indonesian Palm Civet, a jungle marsupial that devours the fruit of the coffee cherry. The beans are then gathered from jungle floors, washed, sun-dried, and roasted. This smooth and aromatic stout is seriously good to the last dropping.
