"Black Is Beautiful" Beer Review: More Brewing

I’m up to my tenth review of a Black Is Beautiful collaboration beer, started by Weathered Souls Brewing of San Antonio, TX to raise funds and awareness for Black issues and social justice causes.

I’ve almost hit all the local brewers with beers that are canned. Now I’m left with several cans available if anyone wants to trade for some beers from outside my area. Meantime, I’ve been getting some beers sent as promotions by their brewers again, so I’m back to some other beers shortly.

bib-more-img_1898This iteration comes from More Brewing of Villa Park and Huntley, IL. Their version is an 11% abv brew, which I think the strongest one I’ve had. It’s made with two blends from Chicago’s Dark Matter Coffee: Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Natural & San Jeronimo Miramar Sarchimor Honey coffees. Hey, watch the video to see if I pronounce them correctly.

More Brewing is directing proceeds to the Chicago Freedom School, which is dedicated to “provides training and education for young people and adult allies to create a just world.”

There’s a sweet coffee liqueur smell as I pour into the glass. The beer pours black with brownish highlights, and a nice thick tan head. The Kahlua impression is in the taste big time, too. Sweet coffee notes, and malty beer with noticeable alcohol. Nothing overdone, no extra bitterness or astringency. A smooth sweet coffee beer good for dessert.
