Diageo has combined its classic Guinness stout with cold brew coffee in its latest nitrogenated beer creation.
Guinness Nitro Cold Brew Coffee beer is described as the perfect balance of bitter and sweet with a roast coffee flavour.
The US is the first market to enjoy the new offering, however the beer is expected to slowly roll out to other countries over the next 12-18 months.
The drink is brewed using cold brew coffee extract and natural coffee flavours, offering hints of espresso, chocolate and caramel.
With a 4% ABV, Guinness Nitro Cold Brew Coffee is said to be best enjoyed straight from the can or poured into a glass to fully activate the widget inside the can – which infuses nitrogen into the beer upon opening.
“Nitro Cold Brew Coffee beer is a welcome addition to the Guinness family, and the response so far has been incredible,” said Nikhil Shah, Guinness brand director.
“Now that it’s officially iced coffee season, we’re excited to give consumers a coffee-forward beer to enjoy during their spring and summertime occasions.”
The new drink marks a permanent addition to the Guinness portfolio and comes after the launch of its alcohol-free variant, Guinness 0.0.
Guinness Nitro Cold Brew Coffee beer is available now in the US nationwide for an RRP of $9.99 per pack of four cans.
