We brew Morning Coffee Stout once a year for release in late winter / early spring. Each year the recipe differs as does the coffee we use to craft this phenomenal brew. Morning Coffee Stout 2009 combines a blend of three roasted malts, roasted barley and Japanese kokuto (black sugar) with Tully’s Holiday Roast (Guatemala Cupper Reserve) coffee that is cold brewed and added to the stout just at packaging. The secondary fermentation and maturation that occurs post-packaging produces a hybrid stout-coffee elixir that is, in a word, divine. 2006 version at 6.4%. 2009 version at 7%

On tap @ Nakameguro Taproom. Nice beige head on a nice black body. It does smell like a cup of nicely roasted coffee. Taste does this beer a justice and there is nice roast, together with some coffee beans. Smooth mouthfeel and relatively thin body. Good beer, nice for slow sipping.

7% on tap at Bungalow. A dark midnight black pour with a thick creamy beige head. Strong roast coffee bean aroma, imagine you’re at a coffee roasters inhaling the intoxicating smell while waiting for a cup of joe - that’s what this beer evokes. Smooth creamy mouthfeel on a slightly thin body. The taste is your morning coffee with cream & two sugars. Roasty sweet milk coffee goodness. Up there with the best coffee stouts but more regular coffee than high end coffee. As you drink the glass though the sweetness becomes slightly cloying. All in all though a great beer considering I don’t like coffee but really find this beer well executed. Nicely done Baird!

For a coffee stout I dont get much coffee on the nose. Also a small amount of head. The mouthfeel and taste are also thinner than expected. As an espresso fanatic I do not dig this beer.

On tap. Pours black with a small light-brown head. Aroma of coffee. Taste is of roasted malts & sugar but mostly of cold coffee. And lots of it. It’s sweet but has a LONG bitter aftertaste of coffee. Not actually bad, but not really one I want again either.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2013 Soft dark colour. Aroma is coffee grinds. Taste is rich coffee flavours. Bit too much of the bitter coffee stuff for my taste though.

Pours black with a light tan head. Nose shows old coffee and soft roasted malt. Little else. Very similar flavours; old coffee grounds and dry roasted malt. A little sweetness underneath shows up later. Body could be a bit thicker, feels a little weak at the moment.
