Black coffee in beer

That’s what the latest microbrew out of the kitchen is. Essentially the Buzz beer Drew Carey brought into the public stream of conciousness in the late 90’s.

As far as my coffee goes, I’ll make myself a mocha, or drink it black (with sugar). It took me a while to get used to the strong coffee when I lived in France, and I seem to have regressed. (Currently needing much more sugar than the single micro-cube of sugar they’d provide)

As far as this batch of beer goes, It is a fairly clean Bock style beer, with a definate (nearly iced) black coffee finish. If black coffee is your thing, but you don’t find it strong enough (or “relaxing enough”) after a hard day, this will definately fit the bill. and then some.

I have 20 bottles just waiting for me… I think It’ll take a couple to get a taste for it. It is almost too coffee flavored for my taste. I want to add sugar and ice. (or heat it up, which is probably a bad idea).

After “testing” the first bottle, I’m feeling the alcohol moreso than the caffiene… I wonder how many bottles before I won’t be able to sleep? Or, will the coffee act like a built-in sobering up mechanism. (I don’t think so!)

    I always find your adventures with micro-brewing interesting, but I can’t say that I’d have thought of a coffee influenced beer…though that maybe my dislike of coffee in general speaking. Also, I haven’t thought of Buzz Beer in ages!
