COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 O’hori’s Coffee House. Its heavenly flavor and aroma can’t be beat or imitated.

Poured from a 12oz can. Massive, rocky, tan-brown foam atop a jet black viscous beer. The head size may be partly due to the struggle to dislodge it from its hard plastic carrier. Aromas are sting chocolate, roasted malt, and caramel. Flavors, much like the aroma. Highly carbonated, but not quite exploding in my mouth. Dark chocolate, bitter-sweet, coffee, not astringent. Warming alcohol, but not hot. The can says, "After Noon", but I can easily drink this brew in the morning hours. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Is this an iced coffee? Really nice coffee taste sweetened by the roast malts. Very refreshing with the 8% unnoticeable.

rougeau13 (2016) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Can at Flying Saucer. Black, with a big, creamy, beige head. Aroma of coffee and cream. Tastes just like cold coffee with a little cream, but with kind of a blander flavor than just a cup of joe. Medium-full bodied with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel.
