COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We love our local roasterís 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.

Poured from a 16 ounce can thanks to pepsiedcan. Thanks! Pours a very densely black, nearly the color of used motor oil, with a gloopy brown head of foam. Smells of rich coffee beans, nuts, roasty, burnt, lightly fruity. Smells quite good. The first sip is very intense coffee. Like a kick in the face intensity. That taste really sticks with you, too. If I could brew a cup of coffee like this, Iíd be a very happy man. Very good coffee stout.

Can. Pours pitch opaque black with a medium brown head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is coffee and dark roasted malt. Flavor its the same, medium sweet, light sourness that eventually becomes a bit offputting. Medium body.

16oz can shared by oRos. Pours near black witha thick tan head and a smoky aroma. There is a slightly sour treacle and coffee flavor with a dry finish.

Thick pour. Thick drink. Thick is it. Coffee stout to the extreme. Pretty good but almost too much ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I donít know how this beer got such a high rating. Itís flat and tastes of 2 week old cold press. Mildy acidic. Licorice and obscenely sweet.

unclemike (2578) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Poured very creamy and black and raised a tan head that left lacing like dark glue. Nose is chocolate and coffee roasted malts. Heavy body and a slick mouthfeel. The flavor is strong with coffee, chocolate, and ripe fruit. Long bitter finish. Simply outstanding

Drake (10703) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 28, 2012
16 ounce can courtesy of pepsican. Thanks! Pours a very dark brown color with a large dark brown head. Good head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, dark roasted coffee, chocolate and tobacco. The taste is coffee, dark roasted malts, sweet malts and a bit of smoke. Medium bodied, low carbonation.

On tap at GTMW - Was really looking forward to this one, and the nose initially lived up to my expectations. Unfortunately, then I tasted it. It poured nice, black with a thin tan head. Nose has lovely coffee, hazelnut and vanilla. Taste isnít at all what youíd think though, with everything watered down--the coffee, the roast, the vanilla, the nuttiness. Even the body is really light. Just a big letdown.

16oz can, bought in the Quad Cities. Poured a completely black color with a small, dark brown head. Aroma was a bitter coffee note, with a slightly roasted malt character. Flavor was like a chilled iced coffee without a single drop of creme or sugar. Not really as coffee forward as I would have expected from what I expect from most coffee stouts, but I enjoyed this one.
