Appalachian Brewing Company Ragged Edge Espresso Stout
I stopped in to Appalachian Brewing Company on release day for the new Ragged Edge Espresso Stout. I previously have had the Cornerstone Espresso Stout, a one-off, and completely loved the beer. This version was made with coffee from Ragged Edge in Gettysburg. The beer pours a thick black color with frothy tan head. The aroma consists of dark chocolate and fresh espresso beans. The taste is dry and chocolate with lots of bitter coffee. The alcohol content is 4.6% ABV. While the Ragged Edge Espresso Stout was good, it was not quite as good as the Cornerstone Espresso Stout, and I really wish ABC would bring that one back.
