Recess Brewing is a small craft brewery in downtown Edwardsville, IL. They did a cool collaboration with Strange Donuts and Goshen Coffee this year called Summer Brunch, which could have been better.
Comrade is an imperial stout clocking in at 9.6% ABV and 53 IBU’s. For a high ABV beer, it has a pretty thin mouthfeel.
The nitro version is creamy but has some chocolate sweetness in contrast with the coffee bitterness. Brewed with Goshen Coffee, which is a plus, but the coffee is mostly bitter in this beer. This is decent but nothing earth shattering. I would have liked to seen more from this beer, but for something with high gravity, this was pretty average unfortunately. I’m still waiting for this brewery to wow me, and it hasn’t happened yet.
