Mudbug Brewery LLC, Thibodaux, LA
Our take on a New Orleans classic. Chocolate and black malts create a roasted note that pairs perfectly with – what else? – cold-brewed Louisiana coffee, while milk sugar adds the creamy, sweet character to this stout. One sip of our coffee-laden stout will have you wondering why it took this long for a malted beer version of the French Quarter favorite to emerge.
Dark brown in color with a nose of sweet coffee. Tastes of coffee, but surprisingly not sweet: like drinking an iced coffee. Not a bad stout, but not our favorite. Very bitter on the tail end, similar to coffee tannins. Surprisingly light bodied until the aftertaste. Not much else to it: like drinking cold coffee.
Would we have it again? No
