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.

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. Im really enjoying this one having so much flavor without being and alcohol monster.

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 (4102) - Snohomish, 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.

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.

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 Ive 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 Id 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 (6300) - 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.
