Nantahala Brewing Releasing Midnight Topher

12 November 2016

From Nantahala:

Midnight Topher, deemed by Nantahala Brewing as an “illicitly indulgent stout,” is a 6% ABV stout infused with whole espresso beans after fermentation but prior to carbonation. This technique results in a beer dominated by iced coffee, roast and chocolate flavors without any of the astringency that can result from brewed coffee added to the boil. An addition of lactose rounds out the stout’s mouthfeel.

“I used to work in coffee and wanted to blend two things I greatly enjoy, coffee and beer,” said White. “Some coffee beers only have mild flavors or hints of coffee but that was not what I wanted. I was aiming for a robust coffee flavor with lots of roast character and I think I succeeded. This is the kind of coffee beer that I want to drink.“

Bottles of Midnight Topher will be released at the Bryson City brewery on Friday, November 25th. The beer will also be available on shelves in grocery stores and bottle shops in Tennessee and Western North Carolina in the following weeks.
