Once upon a time there was a blogger who went to a beer store and happened upon a bottle of Pisgah Valdez. The 6.8% ABV coffee stout was made with coffee from Dynamite Roasting Company in Black Mountain. Now this was not the bloggers first experience with Valdez, in fact he had consumed it on several occasions. What was new for the blogger was finding it bottled and available to take home. He stored the bottle in a nice cool area until time to pop the top and sample the liquid inside. That liquid was magical boys and girls. It was as if Juan and his mule walked the beans down from the mountainside so they could be roasted and eventually added to the beer. Children, this beer is no palate ripper, but rather a smooth and pleasant coffee stout which is all espresso, all the time. Now drift off to dreamland kiddies and when the sandman comes tell that dude to shove off since you’ll have a caffeine high from Valdez. Sweet dreams!
