COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To honor a true scholar, the Requiem Espresso Stout’s October release celebrates Edgar Allan Poe’s 200th birthday. Fusing fresh roast espresso beans with malted barley and fresh hops, the Requiem Espresso Stout is a curiously delightful libation that weighs in at 7.5% alcohol by volume. Not your mass-marketed, fizzy-yellow-swill, the Requiem Espresso Stout is instead a rich, medium bodied, viscous treat with hints of dark chocolate, smokiness, and espresso beans.

Sampled at GT’s birthday tasting. Dark brown pour with a small head. Struck me as a poor man’s Coffee Bender with some decent mocha notes and some chocolate. Not great.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Pours a transparent dark mahogany with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a light sweet toasty dark caramel malty nose with a touch of espresso. Starts with good fullness and toasty dark malty sweetness with a smooth light coffee bitterness and a touch of butterscotch in the finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable.

651mL courtesy of CaptainCougar. The pour is a clear cola brown with a thin tan head. Spotty lace. Nose is sweet vanilla, plastic, olive, grape soda....ick. Headache inducing. Off nose. Taste is watery, thin, weird stuff. Lots of brown sugar packet. Weird.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 17, 2011
Pours dark brown black with a thin, tan head, specks of lace. Smells of lightly sweet, roasted malts with a hint of coffee. Tastes good. Sweet and dark and roasty malts with some coffee and a touch of chalk. Good. Medium body, good carbonation. Could use a little more body.

Bottle. Brown in color with a small white head. Really it is a touch off white to be exact. Nice aroma filled with coffee and cream. Flavor is somewhat sweet. Chocolate malt works well with the espresso which has not been over roasted. Some graham cracker flavor is present as well. Nice carbonation which keeps this from getting cloying and sticky. Really enjoyable, and so far the highlight of a small tasting during the Golden Globes.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2011
750ml bottle. Dark brown pour with a thin bubbly white head. Texture wasn’t too thick, seemed more on the lighter side. Aroma had a good amount of coffee beans and espresso cream. Flavors were malty and sweet, hints of sugar and cream. A lighter espresso stout but still decent and worth a shot.
