When one of your owners owns a bunch of cafés and a coffee roastery, surely it’s only a matter of time before you look to make a coffee porter. That’s the case with Burnley at least, where Phil Gijsbers smuggled some cold drip coffee out of These Days Coffee Roastery and delivered the contraband straight to head brewer Michael.
While the expectation for a coffee porter may be a beer that focuses on roasted notes, that's not the case with Burnley’s offering. Though you'll pick up a touch of roast, the coffee instead adds fruitier elements, of berries and currants, to the rich underlying beer.
