White Electric might be one of the third best stouts in the world – according to the World Beer Championships – but it’ll forever be gold in our hearts.
White Electric Coffee Stout was recently awarded the bronze medal in the Best Stouts and Porters category at the World Beer Championships from Tastings.com. This stout combines locally roasted White Electric coffee from New Harvest in RI with a mix of malts including Maris Otter from England, Chocolate, Crystal, Roasted Barley and Chocolate Wheat along with EKG hops to create a complex beverage with notes of bittersweet coffee and chocolate at 8.5% ABV and 55 IBUs.
Here’s a highlight of what the judges had to say:
“Ebony color. Aromas and flavors of tootsie roll, roasted bell peppers, grilled plantain, and pickling spices with a satiny, soft, dry medium body and a warming, brisk charred nut shells, whey, and cocoa powder finish. A mild and uncomplicated stout with a rustic side.”
