Modern Times City of the Dead
From Modern Times – Modern Times is the first brewery/roastery in the world to make beer with barrel-aged coffee beans. The barrel-aged coffee adds layer upon layer of rich bourbon, oak, and vanilla character to the underlying nutty, floral, full-bodied Guatemalan coffee. As a result, City of the Dead is an outrageously complex and flavorful stout, even though the beer itself has not spent any time in barrels.
Modern Times Beer – Modern Times City of the Dead – 22 oz. bottle poured into a goblet. 7.5% abv.
Appearance: Pours black with a thin tan ring around the edges.
Aroma: Booze soaked chocolate cake, hazelnut, coffee and aromas I’m just not familiar with. My gradfather Everett’s breathe. He drank a lot of sherry morning til night!
Taste: Cold pressed coffee, whiskey twang, black forrest cake, finishes bitter sweet.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, silky. Soft carbonation.
Overall: I went nuts for this beer, it’s amazing, and unlike any other beer I’ve ever tried in my life. I’m happy with the gravity of the beer too. Not too thin, but not too thick and strong. I hope this is made again.
