COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Organic Portland Roast Espresso Stout is a collaboration between the Laurelwood brewery and Portland Roasting. The beer features a blend of Ethiopian and Sumatran coffees specially selected by the Head Brewer at Laurelwood. The Organic and farm friendly coffees blend nicely with their smooth and mellow organic stout. The roasted character of the ale is nicely complimented by the coffee flavor and aroma.

"Had this for breakfast. Pleasant fresh coffee aroma and flavor with just enough roasted malt, chocolate and hops to balance. A touch thin on the palate, but not watery. Good call for the a.m."

Bottle. Nice brown with a light brown head. Roasted chocolate, tasty coffee, reminds me of sumptown cold brew on nitro a bit, dry, easy to drink, moderate carbonation and body.

Bottle. Pours with two finger dense tan head partially lasting with some lace. The aroma is rich high quality coffee, dark hearty bread fairly well toasted, The flavor has a good bit of pine on all that with touch of vanilla and more a stronger dark roast quality that rides out. The feel is cool silt, touch of acidity and minerality, not so lively but still fresh. Iím really enjoying this one having so much flavor without being and alcohol monster.

A dark brown porter with a thin mocha head. In aroma, bitter chocolate with good coffee grind, coffee extract, herbaceous character, very nice. In mouth, a nice bitter chocolate with coffee grind, grassy hops, nice and smooth. Bottle at Spinrsx tasting.

Bottle share. Aroma is straight coffee. Appearance is a dark brown with some nice, tan lacing. Taste is dark coffee with plenty of dry bitterness. Palate is dark and dry. Overall, the label is not lying. This is a very coffee beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maxwelldeux (3802) - Everett, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours a near black color with a moderate tan head on it. Nose is heavily coffee laden, and I really want to drink this beer in the morning. Taste is a little bitter, and reminds me much more of a black coffee (cough espresso cough) than beer. Tasty as all hell, though.

douglas88 (6332) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Bomber. Pours a dark brown color with a large beige head. A massive coffee nose. The flavor is big coffee, milky, metal, nutty, medium roast. Massive coffee.

Poured from a bomber. A beautiful acidic, bitter cup of espresso with cacao nibs. This thing looks gorgeous, a weighty, pitch black stout, off white head, just lovely. A nice bitter, chocolatey, roasty aroma coming off the glass. A little oily on the palate, which I like. Ends like more of an acidic roast. One of my favorite coffee stout offerings and one of my favorites from this brewery.
