From Grand Teton:
Grand Teton Brewing Company, known throughout the West for their exceptional craft brews, is proud to announce the release of Wake Up Call Imperial Coffee Porter in their 2016 Cellar Reserve series.
Wake Up Call Imperial Coffee Porter has a distinct and robust coffee flavor that blends harmoniously with the roasted malts. Caramel, chocolate, and black malts give this ale its dark color and overtones of caramel and a cocoa-like sweetness. Only very gently hopped, the addition of coffee shines through, providing a delicious accent to this brew.
The brewers at Grand Teton Brewing used well over a pound per barrel of Moonshot Espresso beans from Caffe Ibis Coffee Roasting Company in Logan, Utah. This classic three-bean blend has loads of caramel with a fine sugar sweetness and a smoky but smooth finish.
If stored in a cool, dark location, this beer should stand up to the test of time. The roasted coffee and rich maltiness will mingle together and mellow with age.
