Ep. 72 - Boulevard Brewing Imperial Stout X Coffee Ale 2015


“I fear the man who drinks water and so remembers this morning what the rest of us said last night.” — Greek proverb

We're headed to Kansas City for our first Boulevard Brewing beer: the 2015 Imperial Stout X Coffee Ale.

In education we talk about mashing.

Brews in the News: 

- There's a new grain type called Kenza that's good for the environment.

The Beers

Imperial Stout X Coffee Ale 2015

Official Description: 

This first edition of our Imperial Stout “X” series, incorporates freshly roasted Ethiopian Sidamo beans from our friends and neighbors at The Roasterie. After fermentation is complete and the beer has been crash cooled with the yeast removed, our brewers transfer Imperial Stout into a sanitized stainless tank that has been fitted with bags of coarsely ground coffee beans.

We allow the beer to rest on the coffee for a minimum of 24 hours before removing the beer from the coffee beans. Imperial Stout X – Coffee is not barrel aged.

The resulting beer is a marriage of huge, round, chocolate and caramel notes from the base beer, with smooth layers of sweet citrus and floral flavors and aromas from the coffee.
