Imperial Stout with Coffee
Permutation is our experimental series of small batch offerings, showcasing the unique visions and innovative concepts developed by our production crew. The names are sequential, reflecting the brewing year in Trillium's lifespan, followed by a recipe indicator. It's no secret that we love the interplay between Barrington coffee and a blend of dark specialty malts. We've brewed many coffee stouts throughout the years, but we're continually experimenting with different roasts and bean varietals, exploring the range of how coffee can express itself in beer.
For Permutation 6.56, we brewed a viscous imperial stout and paired it with light roast Barrington coffee.Pouring a thick, dense black color, Permutation 6.56 is incredibly aromatic. Notes straddling the line between bakery and coffee shop are immediately present. Baker's chocolate, fresh-ground coffee beans, caramelized brown sugar, and fudge greet the palate. Medium-bodied and remarkably easy-drinking, Permutation 6.56 is rich with inviting roasty character.
