Our Coffee Stout is rich and smooth with just a hint coffee flavor. It is crafted using five different malted grains, which results in dark color and flavors of chocolate and heavily roasted malt. We then partnered with Des Moines based U.S. Roasterie to select a Mocha Java coffee to add depth and flavor to beer. We think it turned out great and hope you will agree!

Dark brown pour, brown head. Aroma is coffee up front, roast and chocolate. Lots of coffee flavor, cocoa nibs, roast, light lactose tartness. Good!

Bottle at Dans. Poured deep brown with a small khaki head and good lacing. Smells of coffee, chocolate, light molasses, and dark fruit. Taste is chocolate, coffee, some tobacco, and light char. Mouthfeel is thick with soft carbonation. Overall, not bad and nothing off-putting, but nothing special.

Thanks to Aaron for the pour - headless, looks like cola - smells like vodka, coffee and tootsie rolls - taste is a bit better - bitter dark malts and moderate coffee - a bit of ashy character - alcohol in the finish, as well as some moderate chocolate - surprising alcohol burn for the abv.

Bottle @ Dan’s house. Deep brown/black appearance with a small, light brown head. Roasty, dark chocolate, coffee, light vanilla, a bit charred aroma. A little light bodied, roasty, charred malty, dark chocolate, espresso flavor. Pretty roasty flavor. Not bad.

$4.99 for a 22 oz. bottle at HyVee, Newton, IA. Pours deep brown with a fizzy but short-lived brown head. Smell of light coffee and stout roast malts, a little bit of warm alcohol. Taste is a somewhat light dry stout, with a slightly bitter coffee finish. Basic fizzy beer carbonation, but this works well with it. Slight note of staled stout behind it. Coffee is present, basically rounds out the palate rather than overruning it. And thus the odd desire to keep a coffee stout in the portfolio expands, from every brewer in the Quad Cities out to Newton. All using local coffee roasters, too. How does this happen? Enquiring minds may find out one day.

Thanks, CanIHave4Beers! Tasted from a bomber bottle into a tulip glass. Poured an opaque, black as black color with huge, moussy tan foam and exquisite Belgian lace. A perfect appearance. Judging by all that protein, they must’ve included plenty of unmalted oats or roasted barley. True-to-style coffee stout aromas and flavors. Fresher and darker-roasted coffee than typical, with a lighter, more digestive body than some. Extremely dry, toasty finish. Drinkable and delicious.

Smells like coffee, but tastes rather burnt. Thin head. Pours thick and oily. Doesnt sit on palate. Dry.

Bottle thanks to Ed. Pours a pure black color with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet roasted coffee. The flavor comes across as a rich milky coffee with some smoke and a big roast. Balanced by the sweetness and roast. Enjoyable.
