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.

Very good for the low ABV. Obviously a bit thinner as a result, but very nice flavor. Roasty malts. Strong espresso stouts. This is not a sweet stout, as an FYI. Recommended.

One of my favorite beers from one of my favorite breweries. Smell of espresso and milk chocolate. Taste of roast and slight burnt toast. Flavor of silky smooth roast coffee and a coffee nose after brew is finished.

HIGHB4LL (835) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2015
On tap at taphouse at PDX. Appearance: Finger tan head, dark brown color, opaque. Aroma: nutty, chocolate, roast coffee, earthy. Palate: full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Taste: sweet chocolate and nutty into roast coffee beans bitterness, but not too strong. Overall, sort of thin and watery in my opinion, but still pretty alright.

Poured from a 22. Best coffee stout out there. Aroma is just like a coffee shop, strong and sweet. Flavor is definitely coffee and not bitter at all. Has a slight chocolatey creaminess to it. Nice smooth finish and the coffee flavor really stays with you. Perfect!

Sarlacc83 (1366) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Tap at public house. A: Pitch black with a creme colored head. N: Enormous espresso, big cocoa and roast. Biscuit and char. Pine and earth. Black peppercorn. T: Bitter and a touch sweet. Good coffee flavor here too. M: Medium body, prickly carbonation, no alcohol presence. O: A rich coffee stout. I would compare it, favorably, to New Glarus’ s.

SHIG (3934) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Draft: Poured a black with light brown head. Aroma is coffee bean and roast. Taste is stale coffee that increased intensity with loads of roast.

poisoneddwarf (1955) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Aroma is strong in coffee, chocolate, roasty--sure smells good. Pours black with a one finger tan head that collapses after a minute. Taste is roasty, sweet, lightly tart with a mild bitter finish. The coffee isn’t as strong in flavor as aroma; chocolate is strong, licorice is there. Velvety mouthfeel, full body. Nice coffee beer.

On tap at the brewpub - Pours dark brown with an off-white head. The aroma has lots of espresso and roasty malt. It has a medium crisp body with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with heavy coffee, dry roast, dark caramel and dark chocolate. The finish has huge dry coffee and some caramel. Definitely nails what its aiming to accomplish.

Bottle... Pours dark brown with Longhorn-orange highlights and a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Decent retention. The aroma features deep, rich, roasted barley and mocha. Medium-bodied with a moderate measure of airy carbonation. The flavor provides mocha – espresso and dark chocolate - but is fairly thin. Watery, mildly burnt, black coffee finish.

"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."
