Central Waters Peruvian Morning 2012
Central Waters Peruvian Morning is an American Double/Imperial Stout that is made with Emy J’s Coffee and then bourbon barrel aged. Bourbon, vanilla and some roasted coffee flavors battle back and forth for control of your taste buds. The coffee ultimately fades a bit, and in the end I’d say this lacks a bit of complexity.
Update: It seems Central Waters has recalled the 2012 version of this beer. Don’t panic if you drank one (like I did) it WILL NOT HURT YOU. It seems the beer has not developed to their standards. From the website:
After much scrutiny and tastings, we are announcing a voluntary recall of the 2012 batches of Peruvian Morning. The beer has begun to take on a distinct off flavor that is not our intention, and as we stand behind the quality of our beer, we are offering our customers the opportunity to exchange the product they feel is bad for something else.
We would like to clarify that this beer will not hurt you by drinking it, but the flavor profile is undesirable for the style. The nature of our barrel aging program, specifically Peruvian Morning, carries many variables, and a certain level of risk. We have implemented, and will continue to implement strategies to keep this from happening again.
We at Central Waters care very deeply about the quality of our beers, and as a small company every customer is important to us. As such, if you have Peruvian Morning that you feel has gone bad and would like an exchange, please send an email to [email protected] and we will be in touch with you on a case by case basis.
Again, we apologize for the problem, it is unfortunately a nature of this business sometimes, we intend to make it right by everyone.
Thank you for your support, now and in the future.
