Jack's Abby Coffee Framinghammer. Framingham, MA. Baltic Porter. 10% ABV.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on the Coffee Framinghammer from Jack's Abby. This was another variation of their famous Framinghammer, a Baltic Porter. Many of my readers will remember my first post when I reviewed the Bourbon Barrel Aged Framinghammer, giving it very high marks. Well, this one beat the first.
Served chilled in a brandy snifter. Pours a pitch black color with a 2.5 finger tan foam head. The aroma is heavy on coffee and chocolate, as is the taste. The carbonation is relatively light, but the body is on the medium side. The aftertaste is dominated by coffee. I need to know what blend they use so I can brew a cup every morning myself.
This was an absolutely delicious beer that closely resembles Goose Island's Bourbon County Coffee Stout. The only difference is the absence of bourbon, which brings the ABV down. It is very drinkable for a 10% ABV beer, and I would rate this one extremely high, and urge everyone to buy this if you can find it.
