Grounds For Termination

Brewer's Notes

This is a collaboration between Seismic Brewers and the Master Roasters at local Santa Rosa based Bella Rosa Coffee Company. The base beer is an oatmeal stout with layers of specialty malts and 10% oats for viscosity and texture. Working closely with Bella Rosa, we selected a coffee bean and custom air-roasting profile to compliment the beer. This special roast was then cold brewed at Seismic and blended with the oatmeal stout. Why air-roasting? Why cold brew? To reduce the bitter and sour off-flavors from coffee that could make the beer taste harsh (Boo, quinic and chlorogenic acids – yay, beer!). The result is rich, smooth, roasty, and creamy; a really nice marriage of coffee and beer flavors.
