Fresh bottle thanks to Severstad on my recent trip up to Wisco. Dark brown with ruby highlights and eggshell head. Toffee, cream, bourbon and coffee all meld together with a smooth roast. Really smooth with a great mix of caramel/toffee, fresh brewed coffee and a great woody bourbon kick that is vibrant. A bit of a creaminess to it as well as it flows down with a little touch of heat. Quite sublime.

Mouthfeel is actually a bit lighter than most imperial stouts, but I think it works well it this case and makes it more drinkable. Overall, just a great brew with a great mix of flavors going on. Central Waters continues to kick some ass!

fresh batch. great toffee, faint coffee, bourbon aroma. a little boozy but extremely, dangerously smooth. it should be more meaty but is not bad in terms of mouthfeel. i'm loooking for something i can chew on.

overall, this is a really fine beer. i had a couple of last years batch maybe 8 months after bottling and the bourbon had faded away almost completely. if i have one knock on the fresh bottle it's that the booze is a little too forward.

still.. this is a good good beer and i'm happy to have more.

12oz Bottle

A big "thank you" goes out to d0b for picking me up a bottle of this coffee stout on Saturday, cheers Dave! Peruvian Morning has the look of black coffee when leaving the bottle and appears midnight black when filling the snifter. A densely creamy beige head grows to two fingers on the pour and shows impressive retention with a collar that's even more impressive. The collar leaves behind some fancy looking creamy lacing along the walls of the glass.

I could smell this beer the second the lid popped off. I poured about a foot from my nose and could smell huge vanilla. Sticking my nose in the glass I get French roast coffee off the bat that's balanced perfectly with sweet vanilla, sweet & spicy bourbon, and buttery vanilla. A little dark chocolate and roasted malt hide in the back. The alcohol is perfectly hidden and this brew just makes my mouth water uncontrollably each time my nose enters the glass. I could easily sniff at this beer all night long.

The flavor doesn't live up to the aroma, which would be nearly impossible, but it's not far off either. The coffee comes across the tongue first with semi-sweet vanilla closely behind. Spicy and sweet bourbon hit mid-palate while the roasty character and dark chocolate lay down a solid foundation. You really can't ask for much better flavors coming out of a beer. Everything is so perfectly intertwined without any one aspect overstepping its bounds.

The mouthfeel is the only thing that's merely pedestrian. When I first started drinking this beer the mouthfeel was a little watery compared to where I thought it should have been. After some breathing in the glass the carbonation dies down and the body takes on a moderate mouthfeel with a bit of stick on the swallow. The finish is fairly dry which makes all the flavors really pop and there's zero noticeable alcohol.

For a coffee infused, bourbon barrel aged imperial stout the intensity doesn't wear on you like you think it would. I'd actually prefer this to be in a bomber which would be perfect for me.

Peruvian Morning is another beautiful creation from the folks over at Central Waters. They've really been pumping out some gems over the last few years and this is no exception and maybe the best of the bunch, if not it's close. Thanks for the hookup Dave!
