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.

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Poured into a snifter. 4.0 A: Black color. Two and a half fingers of frothy/foamy tan head. Retention is very good for a coffee beer. 3.5 S: Rich roastiness in here. The coffee added must have a huge hand in this. Bittersweet chocolate and not overbearing amounts of coffee. 2.5 T: The strongest flavor in the taste is a tangy, somewhat acrid old coffee. It trumps the roastiness which is second. Hints of caramel and chocolate under that. Itís not horrible, but Iím not a fan. 4.0 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Thick, viscous feeling without a lot of creaminess. Good here for a coffee beer. 3.0 D: The coffee really wasnít well integrated into this one. If it was, I think I would have enjoyed it a lot.

the best of both worlds! the coffee flavor in this beer is so strong almost overpowering but in a good way. good body not extreamly thick but still thick enough for a stout . has a good creamy texture apparent. anyone who loves coffee and beer has to try this!! best coffee beer iíve had yet!

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Poured from a 16oz can into an imperial pint glass: Pours a near pitch black, like a fresh cup of Kona with two to three fingers of big soft light brown head. Nice lacing. FRESH coffee, Iíve never experienced this from a beer but this coffee smells fresh from the grinder. Some caramel, milk chocolate, cocoa powder, subtle nut notes. They really nail the coffee flavors but I think it stuns the other nice stout characteristics. Really good for what it is though and that is a coffee beer. I can definitely see myself craving one of these in the future. Would be the perfect breakfast beer for camping. Feel is too thin in my opinion. It works fine but it could get beefed up a bit I think. Really solid offering from Great River Brewery. I look forward to trying their other stuff.

GranvilleTim (1467) - Granville, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Deep dark pour with a dark brown head. Aroma is coffee and roasted malt. Taste is dry, well balanced between the stout and the coffee flavor. Dry lasting aftertaste. Low carbonation. Goes down to easy.

Rando7 (755) - Iowa, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Can pours a thick black with 1.5 inch thick chocolate colored head. Aroma mainly coffee.. Taste nice blend of coffee and roast with some chocolate creeping in. Palate creamy with great mouthfeel. Finish bitter and roasty. Alcohol not noticeable

This is easily available in my area and I could see this becoming a go-to beer.

msante79 (2211) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Pint can from Friar Tuck-Springfield. Finally an Iowa tick. Pours near black with one finger dark tan head. Aromas of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, and a touch of caramel. Flavors of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, and some sweetness. Finishes dry with a creamy mouthfeel. Nice coffee flavor, but is nicely balanced with the roasted malts. Very nice stout and a nice surprise.

Ratman197 (10224) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2012
16 oz can poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lingering brown head. Aromas of coffee, roastiness, bakers cocoa, earthines and molasses. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of coffee, bitter chocolate, roastiness and light licorice with a smooth lingering roasty coffee finish.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Pours a very dark/opaque brown with frothy dark tan tinged head that dissipates to a thin coating. Aroma smells of cut wood, roasted coffee beans, raisin and oats. Body is creamy with light carbonation.

Can to glass. Deep brown/black pour with tan head. Deep coffee and sweet chocolate aromas. This has a great coffee finish. I really like this beer. My buddy is from the Quad Cities and I would always make him bring some GR back, but thank goodness we get it in MN now

16 ounce can. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Wow, you can tell from the aroma that this is a coffee beer. It smells mostly like coffee, and also some roasted malt and bittersweet chocolate. Taste is similar to the aroma, itís mostly coffee, but thereís also some roasted malt, milk chocolate and bittersweet chocolate flavors noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís creamy and itís very easy to drink. Moderate carbonation. I think this is a pretty good brew, I liked it a lot. If you like coffee beers, then youíll probably like this one. Definitely worth trying!
