COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sip away the season with Motherís Winter Grind. Weíve combined the rich goodness of a stout with our cold-brewed espresso blend, roasted for us by our coffee loving neighbors at the Mudhouse. The result is a wintery treat thatíll give coffee and beer lovers a reason to cheer!

Bottle in Vail courtesy of jcnielsen. Thanks bro! Pours a deep brown appearance with a dark brown head. Roasty coffee, earthy, chocolate, toasted aroma. Creamy dark chocolate, somewhat herbal/earthy, toasted coffee flavor. Pretty good but not excellent.

phaleslu (6951) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2014
12 oz. bottle from foppa78 - thanks again, Mat! Good to have a new MO bottle in my hands. Pours a deep coffee brown with a moderate beige head that leaves some uneven lace and settles into a ring and film. Aroma of espresso, dark chocolate, earth, toast - pretty straightforward coffee stout nose. Flavor of espresso, roast, toast, earth, dark fruit, and mellow spice. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a mouthfeel that simulates cold-pressed coffee pretty well. Good coffee stout.

Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has some strong coffee and chocolate notes. The flavor is full of coffee, cream, chocolate and roasted malt. Very nice overall. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Good coffee beer.

riversideAK (5656) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Big roasty coffee nose. Some acidity some almost burnt danky notes. Definitely coffee beans. Fresh. Almost black pour with a tan head. Nice full coffee flavor. Some light sweetness underneath. Pretty much all coffee. But not overly agressive or burnt. Only problem to me is flabby carbonation. Other than that it tastes nice.

Strykzone (5159) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Shep brought it. Almost no red in the black. A thin but active tan head. Coffee and ashtray nose. That is the flavor, too. A thin feel. Some distant dark fruit and chocolate. Some fruity hops in the finish. Not a great stout.

heemer77 (5129) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Bottle, thanks to my brother. Black body with a light brown head. Nice roasted coffee with some dark chocolate. A little bit of stone fruit. The taste has some cherries and a little bit of coffee. There is also a little bit of dark chocolate. Smooth and well done.

TomDecapolis (4570) - Milton, Delaware, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Pours a deep almost black with hints of amber when held to light. Bubbly deep tan head that didnít want to stick around. Aroma of freshly ground coffee, caramel, milk chocolate, toasted nuts and light roast. Flavor of milk chocolate, coffee milkshake, vanilla, roasted nuts and caramel. Well done coffee stout.

AirForceHops (3653) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 23, 2014
12 oz. bottle thanks to GrandaddyKC. Neck stamp date of 10/28/14. Dark black color, with fast vanishing tan head. Aroma is black coffee with roasted barley. The front of the sip shows a large amount of roasted coffee followed by caramel and some bitterness in the back to help balance. Body is lean but that is ok because it is only 6% ABV. Very coffee forward. Extremely drinkable coffee stout, thanks Brad!

LilBeerDoctor (3507) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of super fresh roasted coffee beans, roasted nuts (peanut butter), and vanilla. But wow, that aroma is fresh! Probably the best aroma of any coffee beer Iíve had to date (or at least tied). Flavor is quite similar, lots of roasted coffee that finishes with more charred roasted coffee notes. Plenty of roasted nuts, espresso, chocolate, and vanilla as well. Delicious coffee beer and itís really fresh too. Wow, you just canít get much better than this! The aroma is the best part, but the flavor is awesome too. What a great beer from such a sleeper brewery! 10/4/9/4/18 (4.5/5)

theisti (3321) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - DEC 24, 2013
12 oz bottle at Pig and Finch in Leawood, Kansas. The pour is black, slight hint of brownish ruby, with a one inch khaki head. Pretty in the glass. The aroma is fresh coffee, light bitterness, along with a sweet milk caramel malt element. The taste is very similar to iced coffee, roast soft bitter of coffee, along with the sweetness of the caramel malt. The soft milkiness carries the finish. The palate is medium bodied, active carbonation and pleasant roast bitter finish. Very well done coffee beer, I enjoyed this, and I generally do not care for coffee beers.
