About Turkish Coffee Stout by The Intrepid Sojourner Beer Project
The Intrepid Sojourner Beer Project's stout, brewed in the higher-alcohol and hoppier foreign/export style originally created to withstand lengthy shipments to the colonies, stands up to our added flavors of Turkish coffee, cardamom, and sweet orange peel, evoking the Arabic preparation of Turkish coffee. Turkish coffee beans are ground into the finest possible powder and instead of being filtered like coffee styles originating further West are simmered in a small, long-handled metal pot called a cezve. This coffee style spread to the various regions of the world influenced by the Ottoman Empire, ranging from southeastern Europe to North Africa to the Middle East to the Caucasus, each with preferred regional spices to complement the bitterness of this coffee. In the Middle East, cardamom is the spice of choice; our orange is a more unique option.
