COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We love our local roaster’s New Orleans Iced Coffee so much we decided to use their beans in our brew. Redband Stout is made with Indonesian and Ethiopian beans using our 18-hour cold brew extraction method, resulting in a satisfying brew with intense coffee aromatics. The marriage of two of our favorite beverages.

Purchased at Breeze Thru in Wauwatosa, WI; enjoyed at home on Father’s Day prior to heading out for the family day. This stuff is pretty good! Appearance is a creamy pitch black with a rich, dark tan head, looks rather decadent. Aroma of light coffee bitterness, dark chocolate, very subtle vanilla, nice smell. Taste has a great roasted chocolate flavor and the bitterness from the coffee comes towards the end. Not too much lactose / creaminess in this one and it is a bit bitter, but I really like it. Great stuff, happy to have had this as my first Iowa beer!

Nuffield (3637) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2013
One of the best beers in a can I’ve had. It pours like oil, with a very dark head and a nearly 100% opaque body. Initial flavors are excellent, and it performs especially well at cold temperatures (my fridge having some issues that keep it colder than it should be). The palate sagged a bit later on as it warmed, but the flavor and aftertaste both have a well-balanced coffee quality. Very drinkable, frothy rich at times. Good stuff. Can.

Scipio (650) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Pours a black with full, robust, darker tan head. The head is creamy looking as well and is long lasting. Aroma contains chocolate, coffee, some roasty malts, and hints of vanilla. The taste is similar to the aroma. There is a balance of chocolate and coffee, with the coffee impressions perhaps being a bit dominant. Through all of this, there is a tasty vanilla present underneath. Aftertaste is a quick coffee and vanilla. Medium in body, with a thinner, creamy texture. Not a whole lot of carbonation in here. Overall, I enjoyed this one. It doesn’t really do anything all that different than others of this style, but it is done quite well.

16oz can, thanks to robotopera. Shared with b3shine. Dark brown color. Thin light brown head. Some loose dots of lace. Medium, slightly bigger body. Kind of a chewier texture, lighter carbonation. Nice coffee aroma, some dark chocolate, light roasty malt. Malty sweet taste, light on the bitter. Really nice coffee stout.

16 oz can to snifter (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks good; a dark cola with thin beige lacing. Smells of dark malt, chocolate, coffee, and roast. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Solid beer.

nuplastikk (4132) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2013
16oz can picked up in Milwaukee. Pours a very attractive opaque brown-black body with a creamy beige head. A really solid coffee stout for sure, somewhat watery smooth black malt body with a pleasant coffee flavor. The bitterness, and most of the flavor is coffee derived..the smooth clean malt body really lets it shine. Well done, very pleasurable to drink.

Very nice -- I'm always impressed with flavorful low ABV stouts for some reason. Strong stout aroma after a froth less pour. Quite roasty malt flavors. Very strong roasty coffee notes. Recommended! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MIBRomeo (2493) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Dark brown pour with a thick rocky brown head and some nice lacing. Aroma is quite light again in the brand... hints of roasted coffee a little bit of coccoa powder. Palate is lightly acidic a bit thinner than I like my stouts but coats and holds form well. Flavor is a fairly acidic roasted coffee note some touches of chocolate in the finish. Drinkable but not great a bit too much of the coffee bitterness in the finish w/ out enough balance.
