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.

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.

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.

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.

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 (774) - 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!

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 28, 2011
16oz can. Pours extremely dark for a standard stout - looks like an imperial stout. Pitch black with a thick tan head that leaves tons of lacing. Aroma is fresh coffee beans, heavily roasted black malts and some light lactose sweetness and bakers chocolate. But, really, itís about the coffee. The taste has lots of coffee but also has more of the lactose sweetness which really makes this taste like an iced latte. The finish is bitter and roasty. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied for the style. Good carbonation and roasty overall. Iíve a huge fan of coffee stouts, so I really enjoyed this one. Probably not in the league of Central Waters Coffee Stout but itís not far behind.

One of my favorite beers. Coffee flavor complements the stout but is not overpowering.

nbondi (200) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Black with almost no brown creamy head. Could be a problem with the pour... Very roasty nose with some smoke, burnt coffee, and light caramel. Velvety body with good carbonation. Bitter coffee and roastiness overwhelm taste. Dry, drinkable, decent. Ok.
