A Note on This Beer
Dessert beer fans are in for a gourmet treat with today’s sophisticated Tiramisu Stout from Ellison -- it’s a decadent coffee treat for all you folks with a mature palate who also like to indulge in your sweet tooth tendencies.
Tiramisu has been wowing visitors to Ellison’s East Lansing taproom for years, boosting it to flagship Stout status and local favorite with a 4.02 on BeerAdvocate! By infusing it with cocoa nibs, vanilla, and locally roasted coffee, Ellison packs the 8% ABV Stout with rich and silky espresso character full of deep, dark, smooth notes of dry cocoa dust.
Fans of Dark Beer will love the coffee-rich full-bodied flavor and dessert fans will appreciate the airy whipped-cream body of the brew. Tiramisu is begging to be mixed into a beer float with even more silkiness from a scoop of vanilla ice cream. With a touch of roastiness on the end, this is Ellison’s response to the custardy, espresso-infused Italian dessert from which it draws its name.
Tiramisu stands out even among other great Midwestern Dark Beers, giving big-name Michigan staples like Founders CBS a run for their money. But no matter what you decide to compare it with, this is sure to become a bold favorite among the coffee and dessert fans in your life.
