Grá-va Whiskey Barrel Aged Coffee Porter
For our latest Jameson Caskmates collaboration, we opted for a traditional beer style we feel will complement the rich tradition of Jameson Irish Whiskey. A porter can appear simple on the surface, but craft beer connoisseurs will appreciate the subtle complexity this particular brew exhibits. The beer is dry and roasty, utilizing all specialty malts. To further differentiate our porter, we incorporated freshly roasted coffee beans from our favorite local coffee purveyor. We chose a coffee blend that will impart notes of citrus, wild honey, caramel and fresh fruit, paired with a sweet, clean finish and impeccable balance. Expertly aged in Jameson barrels, this porter has some zip while still paying homage to the style. We had some fun with the name, blending the Irish word for love (Grá) with a nickname for coffee (Java). 5.5% ABV
