Tin Whiskers Tiny Circuit Coffee Stout

Local brewery Tin Whiskers has just released a Coffee Stout.  This caffeinated version of their Short Circuit sweet stout is a collaboration with local Coffee roaster Tiny Footprint Coffee.

The beer this is based on, Short Circuit Stout, has been a flagship for this brewery from the beginning.  It’s a nitro poured sweet stout brewed with lactose.  For this collaboration, head brewer Derek Brown and founder Jeff Moriarty cold press an Ethiopian dark roast (Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Negelle Gorbitu) and add it to the bright tank, resulting in a sweet, creamy, roasty stout.

Cascading nitro action

A note about Tiny Footprint:  They are actually the first carbon-negative coffee.  For each pound of coffee they sell, they donate proceeds to replant a forest in Ecuador.  These carbon offsets result in a carbon-negative product.  The coffee is pretty good, too.

The robot approves

You can find this on tap at Tin Whiskers Downtown St. Paul now, and in other craft beer bars soon.
