Thanks to a base of English and German roasted and caramel malts, Hotbox Coffee Porter is loaded with flavors of “roasted nuts, crème brûlée, cocoa and caramel.” Hotbox Roasters, a Colorado craft coffee roaster specializing in the highest quality, fair-trade coffee beans available to coffee lovers nationwide, then cranks this sensory experience to eleven with an infusion of “potent, cold-extracted coffee from Burundian and Ethiopian beans.” These select, exotic beans provide added aromatic and flavor notes of plum, chocolate and blueberry. The finished beer comes together as a 6.4% ABV Porter fueled up on coffee deliciousness.
“Hotbox wake-n-roast gets us rolling in the brewhouse day in and day out.” said head of brewing operation’s Tim Mathews. “Hotbox Porter shows that beer and coffee were meant to be together. Digging in with Hotbox Roasters allowed us to develop a malt blend and a coffee blend that gel beautifully.”
Hotbox Coffee Porter is a specialty release available from September through November. Look for this brew to turn up in 4-packs of 12 oz. cans at select craft beer retailers within Oskar Blues Brewery’s nationwide distribution footprint. This beer moves fast once it hits shelves, so grab ’em when you see ’em. Prost!
