New Belgium's Lips of Faith Series - Imperial Coffee Chocolate Stout


Lips of Faith Imperial Coffee Chocolate Stout by New Belgium Brewing

Another match made in heaven – coffee and chocolate – is showcased in New Belgium’s Lips of Faith selection, Imperial Coffee Chocolate Stout. This strong stout is packed with Fort Collins’-own Cafe Richesse espresso, brewed with roasted barley and Midnight Wheat Malt, and spiced with fair trade cocoa nibs. The beer is an extra dark color with a mocha-colored head. Alcohol by volume is 10%.

“Lips of Faith has become a perfect venue for collaborating with brewing brethren around the country,” said New Belgium brewer Grady Hull. “We’ve always been inspired by Brewer Vivant’s beers and this collaboration speaks to our mutual respect.”

“Our Imperial Stout answers the call for beer drinkers seeking the rich, full character of a coffee stout,” added Hull. “The coffee and chocolate combine to offer a bold flavor with a warming brace of alcohol for those cold winter months.”

Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Appearance: Dark brown to black. Pour is a little less viscous than other Imp. stouts. Very nice head and some decent lacing.

Aroma: Good coffee and very forward chocolate. Some decent malt and it finishes smooth. Very few bitter notes.

Taste: Very pronounced coffee and chocolate again. Some hazelnuts thrown in. Limited bitter notes with a smooth aftertaste. Kind of like having a extra chocolate coffee late. Sweet but not to cloying.

Mouthfeel: A little thin compared to most imperial stouts but with a good amount of carbonation. It's very pleasant and it drinks very easy; almost too easy!

Overall: Very pleasant. Very forward on the chocolate and coffee as advertised. A little thin but it's very easy to drink. For New Belgium not doing very many stouts, this is a solid beer and for $6, I will drink this all day long. Well done
