Check out our latest barrel-aged collaboration with Smog City Brewing!
Flavor notes: Bourbon, Brown Sugar, Stone Fruit, Cocoa Nibs
"Only In Dreams" is a barrel-aged coffee made in collaboration with Smog City Brewing. We decided to use a Colombian coffee from the Finca Villa Sofia farm that was processed with an extended anaerobic fermentation before being washed. We aged the coffee for 25 days in Four Roses & Buffalo Trace oak barrels that previously held Smog City Brewing Co’s "Infinite Wishes”, their annual release barrel-aged imperial stout.
As it is being brewed the strong oak and bourbon aroma from the barrel fill the room. Though the bourbon is strong when you first take a sip, it is quickly replaced with brown sugar and sweet stone fruit that help balance the cup. The body is then rounded out with bold cocoa nibs as its smooth finish gives you that "warm body" feeling.
