River Dog Brewing Co. Perkolatte
River Dog Brewing Co. Perkolatte is a Coffee Milk Stout, 5% ABV. This beer was a local collaboration with Corner Perk of Bluffton, SC.
The pint of this that I got a the brewery was a pitch black color with a fluffy tan two finger head… really, the beer looked great. It doesn’t take long for the outstanding coffee aroma to make it’s way up to the nose. Then add to that great coffee some roasted malts, chocolate covered toffee and the slightest hint of coconut. The taste reveals a near perfect blend of fresh brewed coffee, roasted malts and sweet cream. More subtle notes of caramel, chocoalte, and a great bit of hop balance are on the finish.
Simply put this is an excellent stout, without a doubt this was the highlight of my recent visit there. We even took home a growler that was just as good the next day!
