Foxbush (1503) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 17, 2015
12 oz Bottle from The Bent River Brewing This was one of the beers sent each month form AOPD. the stout pored a pitch black with small tan head that quickly dissipated. The strong aroma of earthy burnt malt and coffee greet you. The stout had a thin body and very soft carbonation. Some chocolate is evident in the taste, Very average stout, needs more body. the finish was clean and weak.

On tap. Pours black with a quickly dissipating brown head. Aroma is of chocolate, alcohol, coffee, and roasted malt. Taste is of chocolate, coffee, and brown sugar. Backbone of roasted malt. Lingering bitter chocolate taste. Mouthfeel is very carbonated, and slightly creamy. Body is light, but not thin. Goes down very easy. Not bad, and it drinks easy.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a nearly pitch black color with a two finger head of a tan colored foam. The head fades moderately quickly to leave a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is big of a roasty smell mixed with a good showing of a coffee aroma. Along with these smells comes some lighter notes of a caramel and vanilla sweetness as well as a little bit of a crème and an oatmeal like aroma. Overall the aroma, while not a powerhouse, is rather pleasant and inviting. Taste – The taste begins with a blend of sweet and roast with the sweet being predominantly of a caramel and toffee flavor but having a little bit of chocolate mixed within. From the start there is a light coffee flavor which grows in intensity as the taste moves on. There is also a good showing of an oatmeal flavor up front which actually dwindles as the taste moves on. While the oatmeal falls, flavors of a vanilla sweetness and some more grainy tastes take its place. With all the transitions that occur on the tongue toward the end, one is left with a rather sweet and smooth roasty coffee flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is a little thicker for a stout of only 5.4 % abv with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. For the dark, sweet, and coffee flavors of the brew the feel is rather well done as it makes for a robust feel for all the rich roasty and dark flavors. Overall – A rather decent oatmeal coffee stout that isn’t overly potent in alcohol. This will make for a rather nice sipping brew in the cooler weather I am sure.

It’s hard to go wrong with Bent River. That being said, this stout smells like.. you guessed it, chocolate and coffee. Pours a dark brown color, with a tan head. Has a deep rich taste with the coffee flavors surprisingly held back and not overpowering. A damn good beer.

Black with a tan head. Lots of coffee and roast malt in the aroma with some chocolate and smoke. The flavor has the same with a sweet start. It has a silky feel and a nice aftertaste.

This is by far the best coffee stout I have ever had!! It is not a heavy stout so it does not fill you up and give you that bloated feel. It has a great aroma and just the right amount of coffee to make the perfect coffee stout.
