Our quest to brew the quintessential coffee beer began over a cupping with the coffee gurus from Richmond’s Lamplighter Roasting Company. Their Ethiopia Sidamo coffee was masterfully roasted to highlight the single origin bean’s bright, crisp body and distinctive blueberry undertones, making it harmonize beautifully with our Russian Imperial Stout. May this beer warm your spirits in these brisk winter months.
Best With: Hardywood Sidamo Coffee Stout pairs masterfully with pastries, with spiced doughnuts and with all manner of sweet cakes. The roast chocolate character in Sidamo Coffee Stout embraces sweet cream- or chocolate-based desserts, while the beer’s pleasant city roast coffee bitterness provides a harmonious contrast. Perhaps the perfect complement to Sidamo Coffee Stout would be a Belgian waffle with warm chocolate sauce and a side of whipped cream and berries.
