Palo Alto Brewing Company Cool Beanz Coffee Porter
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Palo Alto Brewing Company Cool Beanz Coffee Porter.
Commercial description: “Cool Beanz Coffee Porter is an easy drinking porter with a balanced yet notably coffee focused beer. We brew this beer with our local Coffee Roaster Philz Coffee. The Philz roast we use, Philtered Soul, is roasted with hazelnuts and lends a nice nutty roundness to the beer.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a dark reddish brown with a decent off-white head and slight lacing.
Aroma: Huge coffee nose, chocolate and hazelnuts.
Taste: Chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and hazelnuts. Tastes like an adult coffee drink.
Overall: I have to say this is the best way to drink coffee. Palo Alto Brewing Company Cool Beanz Coffee Porter, weighing it at 6% ABV, is delicious. This will be yet another beer I’m going to want to keep around. I highly recommend this one!
