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 Oíhoriís Coffee House. Its heavenly flavor and aroma canít be beat or imitated.

Truly an amazing brew. And better yet, you tastes good straight from the can, around the camp fire.

Had a can of this and I think you could taste the can. It had a bit of rosemary (?) on the nose and the flavour was of coffee. A bit thin with some co2 prickle also evident which brought it down for me.

[355ml can, courtesy of cgarvieuk] Pours dark brown with a thin, white head after exploding from the can. Aromas of bitter coffee and some woody malt. Coffee at first on the palate, but a sweetness is present as well that gives it a Mocha flavour. Plenty of coffee Ė as Iíve said before, coffee beers just arenít my thing. I appreciate they are well made, but unfortunately I just donít like coffee. Love the can, however [02062011]

Zeswaft (1393) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 12, 2011
Aroma is indeed big coffee punch. Flavor is less spectacular but lots of coffee and chocolate. There is some chalky, over roasted flavor. Overall, an average to above average coffee stout. Never had an imperial stout in a can. Novel.
