2016 Share This Coffee by The Bruery is an 11.9% ABV Imperial Stout brewed with Mostra Coffee

Label:
Lend a Hand

Share This Experience with a friend, and in the process you’ll be part of helping friends in the Philippines become mobile for the first time. For every bottle we produce, Free Wheelchair Mission receives one dollar. #sharethisbeer made with MOSTRA COFFEE

Share This is a series of beers that will each spotlight unique ingredients and support an important cause. Our first release sources coffee from the Philippines and supports Free Wheelchair Mission.

==Introduction==
Released nationwide, this beer was made to support a good cause and it is one of two so far that will be released in efforts to assist charitable organizations. Good deal. Buy a beer, help people. I think many breweries should do this but only if it is within their limits to do so. Some up and coming breweries may not have the capacity. Anyways, it has been a while since I have tried a regular non-super ABV stout from the Bruery (aside from So Happens Its Tuesday). One with coffee no less, and coffee I have heard of but I do not think I have tried their brand. Let’s see how this one goes. Cheers!

Aromas:
Dark chocolate, bakers chocolate, German chocolate, milk chocolate, dark fruit raisins, cherries, currants, blackberries, raspberry, vanilla, caramel, toffee, roasted coffee, espresso, mocha, rocky road ice cream notes, Khalua liqueur notes, crème brulee, steamed milk, marshmallows and toasted coconut.

Flavors:
Complex coffee flavors, mocha, roasted coffee, espresso, java, molasses, tobacco, licorice, anise, toasted coconut, chocolate cake, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, bakers chocolate, German chocolate, marshmallows, smores, rocky road ice cream notes, Khalua liqueur notes, crème brulee, steamed milk, Irish cream, dark fruit raisins, cherries, currants, blackberries, raspberry, vanilla, caramel, toffee, earthy hop notes, pecan pie, oreo cookies, flan, hazelnut and fruit cake.

Aftertaste:
Finishes with complex coffee flavors, mocha, dark fruit, dark roast coffee, Irish cream, vanilla, caramel, marshmallows, pecan pie and toffee. No alcohol in the taste despite the high ABV. Dark Full body, creamy, smooth, rich and velvety mouthfeel and easy to moderate drinkability.

Overall:
A perfect stout whose status is put there really by the chocolatey mocha complex flavors of the coffee’s contribution to the Bruery’s already World Class methods of brewing. I think many people are going to enjoy this one especially if they like Coffee and chocolate stouts. Even at the high ABV it is, it is pretty drinkable with no offending alcoholic bite. Definitely something that should be sought out. Cheers!

Anime Corner:
Sandaime Muramasa from Full Metal Daemon was used in this pairing since I wanted to pair the colors of the label, the flavors and the “Share” this aspect and coffee. Like a Barista serving coffee. Although, Sandaime is actually a maid in this one. Either way, I really liked the colors and the pictures. It is a character I have not paired with a beer in a very long time.
