COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our coffee stout is a full bodied, rich stout that supports the espresso character of the coffee. We use 1.5 lbs of Sumatran coffee per barrel. Rich and toasty, the flavor leads with coffee and follows with underlying notes of chocolate, caramel, and dark fruit. Cheers!

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle from a sampler. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Average head retention. Aroma of coffee, milk, toasted malts and a bit of roast. The taste is coffee, chocolate, roasted malts and bitter hops in the finish. A faint banana-like fruitiness. Medium bodied.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Picked up single 12-oz bottle at Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours an opaque dark brown colored brew with a creamy beige head that quickly dissipates to a film top and thin beige ring. Aroma of milk chocolate, toasted black malt, some coffee and a hint of vanilla. Taste is medium bodied, more distinct coffee flavor than its aroma with additional flavors of toasted chocolate malt, and some mild floral hops. Finish is a little chalky, some coffee aftertaste and mild bitterness.

Onionkid (361) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Flavor first hits like black coffee but then mellows out to some dark chocolate. Flavor also has some creamed/roasted properties to it. I really like this beer! Aftertaste is a bit weak to me and tastes watery, otherwise this is a solid beer! 5.8% alcohol.

Mora2000 (5568) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2011
The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a large tan head. The aroma is very heavy on the coffee with some chocolate mixed in. The coffee smells like straight black coffee with no sissy sugar or cream added. The flavor is also very heavy on the coffee. There are also some roasted malt and chocolate notes, as well as a little bit of cream. The beer is a little thinner in body than I expected and the carbonation is medium to high. A very nice coffee stout and one that I hope goes into regular production.

riseagainstme (48) - Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Pours black with a tan head. Had very good coffee and stout taste but with a light easy drinking body and mouthfeel. Tastes very good for being in a mix pack, now I just want a six or twelve of it on its own.

jlruthven (541) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Bottle, poured into an english pint glass. Super-black, barely any brown highlights. A vigorous pour yields an almost three-finger tan head that settles into a rocky formation, and recedes to about half an inch by the end. Nose is strong, dark ground coffee: bitter and clean, with cream and raw sugar. Taste is pretty much reflective: very bitter up front with massive coffee and sweetened baker’s chocolate. As it settles over the tongue, cocoa powder, sugar and cream come through. SA really steps it up during the colder months.

Taste is cold black coffee, dark chocolate and cream. Smooth tasting and easy drinking. Solid beer.
