WILK Friday BeerBuzz–6 July 2012 Flying Dog Kujo Imperial Coffee Stout w/Mary Tellie

We’ve had a parade of brewmasters, founders, CEO’s and owners on the show and I really love getting to talk with each of them AND sample their great beers.  This week we decided to welcome a guest of a different kind into the studio and sample a beer that is right up her alley.

imageMarry Tellie from Electric City Roasting carries a level of coffee-knowledge that is unrivaled in NEPA.  Her knowledge of coffee selection, roasting and serving is an expertise we decided to take advantage of on the show today.

Mary knows coffee… and you’d be amazed at how many descriptors that are common for coffee flavors are also applicable to beer, so it was a tremendous amount of fun to sample a beer with Mary…especially when that beer has Coffee as one of the prominent ingredients.

Today we chose to feature a beer from Flying Dog Brewery in Frederick MD.  Flying Dog has a great history in the craft beer world and some amazing stories of the founding of the brewery.  Keep in mind founder George Stranahan came up with the name while on an adventure to summit K2 (the 2nd highest peak in the world.)  While in base camp at Rawlapindi Pakistan, George noticed a painting featuring an odd “Flying Dog” and the rest was history.
imageOur beer today was Flying Dog Kujo Imperial Coffee Stout.  This big 8.9%ABV Imperial Stout is loaded with coffee…and what perfect way to check Mary’s skills with what Flying Dog calls a “Secret Blend” from Black Dog Coffee (Summit Point, WV.)  Of course she passed with “flying” colors and also helped us with some of the prominent coffee flavors in this beer.  This beer is loaded with chocolaty flavors, a touch of toffee, earthiness and a prominent roasty background…with perhaps just a touch of vanilla too…and of course COFFEE!  Try this one out for yourself and be sure to check out Electric City Roasting coffee’s as well.

Thank you to Mary Tellie from Electric City Roasting

, Nancy & Joe for yet another fun Friday.
