A Note on This Beer
How do you take your coffee? Today, we suggest changing up your daily grind with a dab of cream, a touch of vanilla, and a pinch of spicy cardamom. And while you’re at it, spike it with a 6.8% ABV. Or better yet, skip the barista and enjoy this boozy latte instead: Gilgamesh Brewing’s Shalom Y’all Turkish Coffee Stout.
Beloved for injecting their Portland beers with loads of international flavors, Gilgamesh dessert-ifies Turkish coffee intensity into this sweet and creamy super chuggable treat.
Turkish coffee is notorious for putting espresso to shame in terms of strength, but Shalom Y’All is all silk on the palate. Infused with real coffee, and a Turkish spice blend of cinnamon, cardamom, and vanilla, this brew has virtually no bitterness This allows the spice and roast character to really shine through. Creamy on the tongue, and smooth through the finish, Shalom is a merry greeting from beginning to end.
Take a sip and you’re instantly transported to the Mediterranean, just as Chef John Gorham intended. Bringing his love of Middle Eastern cuisine to Portland’s foodie culture, he collaborated with Gilgamesh to transform this famous coffee into easy-drinking, fully-flavored darkness.
*Spices come out more as the beer warms, around 65 degrees F.
