New Belgium Lips of Faith Imperial Coffee Chocolate Stout
New Belgium Lips of Faith Imperial Coffee Chocolate Stout. The beer pours a black color with a lofty and frothy tan colored head. The aroma consists of strong coffee, chocolate, toasted malts, caramel, and vanilla. The taste is robust with lots of toasted malts and plenty of coffee on the front end. The coffee lingers for a while before a dark chocolate flavor mixed with caramel and vanilla arrives. A dry after taste brings back more coffee, but is just like drinking a fresh cup of joe. The alcohol content is 9.0% ABV. If you love coffee, this beer is for you. It is very robust and offers bold flavors with a nice chocolate accent to it. I highly recommend picking this one up if you see it.
