Cuban Coffee Stout. Trade Day refers to the old Southern tradition of gathering at the crossroads to buy and sell goods of all kinds. These culturally diverse events still exist all over Alabama, and after half a century, it’s finally time to welcome our Cuban neighbors back to the crossroads. Y’all bring the coffee, we’ll bring the beer.

First of all, I’d be very surprised if this is 8%. Seemed to clock in somewhere in the low 6% area. Secondly, I like coffee stouts, but I like them to be really coffee-y. There is some coffee, some vanilla, some burnt toast. So the coffee is there, just not as much as I like.

Rating #2268 - 2015.12.19 - Bottle #19 in the 2015 Craft BeerAdvent Calendar Beautiful dark brown pour with a fairly foamy tan head with mild lacing. Aroma is coffee, roasted barley, mild alcohol, lots of espresso earthy notes on the palate. Medium-heavy alcohol warmth but not ultra boozy on the palate. Love the un-shy coffee forwardness, and the sweet molassesy notes that linger.

Un liquide presque noir avec une tête mousseuse qui s’éparpille. Mon nez écrase une fève de café fraîchement torréfiée, de la terre et des malts timides mais présents et du tabac qui fume. Mes papilles aiment cette saveur bien réglée de café avec cette bonne impression de cacao et de mélasse noircie. En bouche, le corps moyen-mince présente des bulles modérées. La texture grasse d’un café de qualité est étonnamment réussie. En finale, l’amertume du café et des grains maltés passe vite en devenant, tout à coup, un peu aqueuse.

Shag (2843) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 16, 2016
Black appearance with a large tan head. Faint aroma of coffee, chocolate, and licorice. Flavor is somewhat bitter with coffee, chocolate, and a hint of espresso. Yeah redundant so. Overall very nice.

DocJitsu (1717) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2016
Pours a thick, dark brown with reddish-brown running through its tan, rich head. British porter nose with aromas of chocolate syrup and sweet cherry. Rather thick on the palate. Lightly sweet. Well-balanced. Some chocolate. Sweet cherry. Dark roast coffee. Dark malt. Finishes a bit smoky.

Draft @ Savannah Tap House w Erica. Dark brown w/ even, whispy coffee-colored head. Coffee isn’t in-your-face but it comes through supplemented by little bits of vanilla bean and trace malts on the back end. Some weird metallicism on the nose.

RobBestwick (845) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 6, 2016
Aroma is similar to a medium roast coffee with a bit of vanilla. Pours dark black with very fine off white head. Roasted coffee flavour with notes of dark chocolate and nuts. Medium bodied. Long coffee finish.
