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.

a fresh 22oz bomber served in a tulip - Pours a deep brown with a tan head. Iced toddy and bakers chocolate for aroma and flavor. The thin body of this stout almost makes it drink even more like a delicious cup of coffee. Portland Roast has a slightly acidic yet roasty finish and is a seasonal favorite.

Bottled: unk, first time I’ve seen this one, so newish? Pours a nice opaque ale with a little latte ring and broken surface. No lace. Smells like...coffee. Really, really coffee forward this one, I dig it though - kinda a spicy, sharp and earthy blend with nutty hints. Flavor is roasty and coffee laden with some sweet malts in the background. There is a bit of a single dimension to the beer. Body is thin and watery for style and has moderate carb. A decent beer, I would like to see some additional body and a little sweetness up ended with this degree of coffee addition. Although I’d drink again, I would prefer a smaller format, this is too much coffee for one sitting for me. Serving type: bottle 03-05-2012

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Black, moderate to large frothy beige head, fairly nice lacing.   Soft sweetened coffee, perhaps more of a mocha, but also some cocoa and chocolate.   Smells inviting.   A bit more subdued on the tongue.   A bit more of a black coffee comes out, especially towards the back.   Frontside is semi-sweet, cocoa and chocolate.   Along with the coffee bringing up the rear, its also a bit hoppy.   Minor on the hops tho.   This Stout seems a little thin overall.   Seems a touch watery.   Sweetened black coffee on the exit.   Decent stout, nice coffee like sweetness, but its a little thin.

Bomber from Portland grocery...pours black with creamy tab head. Nose is chocolate and coffee...which carry over into the taste. Dark chocolate, expresso (with cream), touch of caramel. Very smooth and creamy feel. This is one fine stout.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Draft @ PDX. Near black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate, French roast coffee, black malt and light vanilla. Flavor is rich dark chocolate, strong coffee, caramel malt and a nice roasty bitterness. Full body with a creamy mouth feel. Really nice beer, lots of rich flavor and a great mouth feel.

Jet black. Amazing espresso flavor. Amazing. Not much head, no lacing. More coffee than stout. Some oats would make this close to a 5. Thanks aaron.

Pitch black body with a thin tan head. The espresso carries through the nose beautifully. This drinks like a refreshing iced coffee on a hot day. Some bitterness, but loads of depth. Long finish.

Boutip (4856) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 19, 2012
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of aromatic coffee notes is very enjoyable and well balanced against dry roasted notes. Taste is a smooth mix between some rich black chocolate and aromatic coffee notes that are not too dry. Body is slightly above average with good carbonation. Well brewed and very enjoyable stout which ends up being not too dry.
