Name: Cosmic Latte
Style: Blonde Stout/White Stout
Brewery: Beyond the Pale Brewing Company
Artwork: Me and canva (HA)
Commercial Fluff: Cosmic Latte- Don't let the colour fool you, this beer is committed to the Stout Life. Brewed like a traditional stout but using only the malts you would expect to find in a Blonde Ale. To this base we then added copious amounts of Oats to give it a smoother mouthfeel before steeping it with Full Bean Ethiopian Limu coffee and finishing with Cacao Nibs.
Label: Well I created it. It's a bit rough and was never meant to be the final piece, was meant to go to the designer for a clean up. I like it though!
Pour: A darker golden almost orange pour with a nice fluffy white head. The foam hangs around for a while, which I am a big fan of.
Aroma: Hello coffee! It's there early on with a gentle chocolate hint sneaking in through the back.
Taste: Smooth, creamy mouthfeel, with the coffee hitting straight away (fear I will now be awake all night). Once you become use to the coffee you start noticing the chocolate notes and the beer really all comes together and starts really tasting like a stout.
Would I buy it again: Yes. Sadly for me this is a seasonal, but when the brewery has it on tap it is my go to after work drink. If you are ever in Ottawa stop by the brewery and say hi! As always comment and follow the blog. Cheers.
