Details

I like my beer like I like my coffee: sweet, dark, strong and roasty with deep coffee bean overtones. If you agree with this statement, get yourself one of these babies! It’s deep, dark and decadent. Brewed to imperial strength, the booziness adds yet more depth and decadence. And then there’s the coffee. Good lord! It’s exactly how you’d expect coffee to taste close to the source and it melds incredibly well with the sweet, dark malts. An after-dinner beer if ever there was one, Founders knock it out of the park yet again; the coffee, closely followed by the incredibly well-crafted malt bill, really steal the show! Take a trip deep into the Sumatran Mountains, you won’t want to come back!

Brewery Info

Originally brewing middle-of-the-road beers for a wide and not-terribly-engaged audience, Founders realised that they’d have to change if they wanted to survive. They started making bold and complex beers instead, launching themselves to craft beer fame.

From coffee-infused Breakfast Stout, bourbon barrel-aged Backwoods Bastard and a 15% barleywine called Bolt Cutter, you can’t accuse Founders of being dull. As well as brews that push the boundaries, their lower abv. range is a more accessible introduction and includes the excellent All Day IPA.

Heavy with coffee on the nose and the palette. A sweet and light taste. This beer has a good body with a nutty brown colour.
