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.

Pours dark brown from can. Nose is has some malt but is dominant with coffee. Almost tastes like carbinated coffee. If you like coffee, this is a lighter beer for you. Nice.

DiarmaidBHK (3574) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Can from Johns Grocery. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves a little bit of lacing. There’s some roasted coffee notes on the nose but you really have to hunt for them. A little thin on the tongue. A little bit of rot on the tongue with a fair amount of bitterness on the finish. The finish may be the most interesting thing about this beer.

Can. Pours near black with a beige head. Lighter roasted malts, a lot of coffee, lighter chocolate, and a nice full bodied mouthfeel. Good stuff.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Tall boy from France 44. Heavy looking pour, just short of sludgy but no joke at the same time. Thin head, gone pretty quickly to leave the near-milkshake behind. Nose is heavy chocolate, not too much in the way of coffee at first (though if you snort deeply you get more than a whiff). Mouthfeel is too thick to be wholly enjoyable, especially with a relative dearth of carbonation. Flavors are okay, though there’s a near hazelnut quality in places, whereas I like it pinned towards the bitter end of the spectrum. Average coffee stout.

Pours dark brown with huge dark brown head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt. Tastes of coffee , and chalk with a biter , almost sour finish, weird, but good

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 (3717) - 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 (719) - 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.
