A surprise from Rohrbach

I gotta be honest. When Jen at Monty’s Krown first told me about the Rohrbach Brewing Company Java’s Espresso Stout (made with real Java Joe’s coffee) they had on hand-pull, I was a little skeptical. Coffee can be overwhelming in beer when not used judiciously, and Rohrbach isn’t exactly the best at the specialty ales.

But I tried a sample. I then ordered a pint.

The stuff is good. There’s a nice coffee essence that doesn’t domintate the flavor of the beer, followed up by a pleasant porter flavor that could probably use a bit more body, but went down nicely nonetheless. Thanks to Rohrbach for nailing down a first-rate pint.
