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!

Bottle. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid roasted coffee and chocolate malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium roasted coffee flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where exceeded.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Wynkoop Parade of Darks 2011. Black appearance with a brown head. Moderate coffee aroma that isn’t completely overdone like so many coffee stouts these days. There’s also the roasty chocolate malts and cocoa. Really smooth, moderate espresso, light caramel, chocolate, cocoa flavor. Really nice drinking beer.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Bottles from Frank Smith et. al. Pours hazy deep black with 1-finger khaki head. Nose is huge coffee, malt; an aroma much like Otto’s Sumatra Stout. Tastes bitter, with a huge coffee flavor, roasty malt, and a rich flavor. This is a top notch coffee stout, but haters of coffee beer will hate this one.
