In the last few months, we at NeuFutur have received a number of efforts that have been plain boring. This is true even with the independent breweries that are on the map – it just feels as if there is a collective malaise in brewing. Flying Dog shatters that aura of complacency with their Kujo Imperial Coffee Stout. While I was expecting a dark, biting, and coffee-heavy effort, the brewery is able to come forth a high-octane beer that will have imbibers wanting a sixer.
This is because each of the beer’s constituent elements work in harmony. The coffee flavor is moderated by the burn of the alcohol, while the imperial styling has the richness of the coffee to content with. With each sip providing individuals with a different face, the experience that will be had with the Kujo Imperial Coffee Stout is truly unique.
I must admit, the current state of beer is beyond sad. It nearly makes me want to stop drinking. However, Flying Dog has made one of the best beers that we have reviewed, and it is my hope that enough people like this effort to make it a full-time thing. The Flying Dog website contains all the information that viewers may want to know about their seasonal, one-time, and full-time beers, while letting them know about the different events that may be coming to their neck of the woods.; If I was in the Maryland or District of Columbia area, I would check one of these out in a minute.
