Project Barista: Affogato
This style-defying beer is our take on the classic Italian Affogato. Quarter Horse coffee deliberately over-roasted the Brazilian beans here to push intense coffee, chocolate and roasted notes through the beer. This intense coffee and bitterness contrasts with the base beer which has a perceived sweetness and generous body from a hefty dose of lactose, along with vanilla for the full ice-cream affect. Cypress wood spirals round things off with a vanilla wafer note and balancing dryness.
