Heine’s Big Brother
The possibility of addiction is very, very real.
Louisville roasted Heine Bros. Espresso was hot extracted pre-fermentation, and Mary Catherine’s Blend was cold extracted and added post-fermentation to give this beer an aggressive bitterness as well as a delicate yet pronounced coffee flavor and aroma. We started this imperial oatmeal stout with a massive amount of high quality Marris Otter malt and added an array of specialties including Oats, Roasted Barley, and very dark caramel Munich. Hefty additions of British hops early in the boil make for a powerful bitterness to balance the high malt sweetness. If your soul stays black even in the sun, this is the beer for you.
