This is the kind of beer that gives the word "stout" a reputation. Extra generous quantities of barley malt, followed by vigorous fermentation leaves this "imperial" heavy weight with 8% alcohol A.B.V. and a body as full as chocolate bread pudding. A complimentary and complex array of bitter notes comes form potent American hops, earthy British hops, black-roasted malts and, of course, coffee. Santa Fe Brewing Company uses only top-quality ingredients like organically grown East Timor coffee beans blended with New Guinea coffee beans, locally roasted by Oíhoriís Coffee House. Its heavenly flavor and aroma canít be beat or imitated.

Can. Pours a very dark brown with a grayish brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges and remains. Aroma has a nice espresso note with a bit of roasted malts and a hint of underlying sweet chocolate. Flavor starts with coffee and roasted malts with more espresso in the finish and a bit of sweet chocolate.

Really tasty Java stout. Dark bitter coffee taste throughout. I drink it often and consider it Santa Feís best achievement.

A pretty decent coffee stout, with basically the usual trappings of the style, though lacking the pungent coffee nose I really love. Since Iíve been drinking Bells Java recently, this is kinda lacking.

On tap at Hops & Pie. Pour is pitch black with a medium tan head and great lacing. Big coffee, espresso, roasted malt, cocoa nibs, somewhat earthy, vanilla, light grass, and bready aroma. Taste is big roasted coffee, earthy, Sumatra, light caramel, brown sugar, toffee, a touch of green peppers - thought not overwhelming - chocolate, and grass with a light bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel with low carbonation. Damn decent stout and my wife seemed to really like this one.

Pours black with a touch of ruby. Clean straight forward coffee aroma. Very nice coffee flavor followed by a dryness on the palate. Overall, very lovely. A strong assertive coffee flavored brew. Thanks to BarZigKin for his generosity...

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2015 Delicious Imperial coffee stout in a can? Now this is something I can get behind. Thanks, gregwilsonstl. Poured into a nonic pint glass, an opaque black colour, reddish at the edges when held to the light, with thick, creamy orange-ish beige foam, long-lasting with lace. Beautiful appearance. Aromas of coffee, burnt grains, bread, toast, fruity esters, not much hops, but thatís true-ti-style. Flavour was tart, fruity again, very slight sourness, very caramelly, less coffee than in the aroma, not terribly roasty, nicely balanced bittersweetness. Overall, quite creamy, smooth, rounded mouthfeel, medium body and carbonation, pleasant aftertaste. Great stuff, for sure.

Can: Very dark brown pour yielding a finger of creamy tan head. Strong aroma of fresh coffee and cocoa... some semblance of Kahlua... lovin it! Lots of coffee in the flavor, really more of a high-quality medium roast than dark espresso. A little hop bitterness along for the ride. I wish more of the aroma would have translated to the taste, but this is still very refreshing (I still love this style) and overall very well done.
