About the Stumbling Monkey
Our annual limited release has developed quite a following! We take a barrel that has aged a spirit, then a beer, then we dump unroasted Ethiopian natural process coffee beans in for a month or so. We then pull it out, roast it, and ship it out to the clamoring fans!
Tasting notes: Vanilla, chocolate, oak, boozy notes balanced with toffee, cocoa. Medium body & Smooth mouthfeel. Lingering fruit acidity from the original coffee.
Brewed hot or cold or even as espresso, Stumbling Monkey leaves quite an impression. Not sure if you'll like it? We've learned to coach people:
- If you like whiskey and coffee, chances are you'll like Stumbling Monkey
- If don't like one or the other, it's a toss-up
- Don't like either? You won't like Stumbling Monkey but also what are you doing on this website 😂
