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.

Can pours a dark brown with a rich tan head. The aroma is very strong coffee sweet and malty. Medium body, I get lots of malts; coffee and chocolate. Very strong with the coffee bitterness, overall a great coffee stout.

Cunningham (5076) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2013

Appearance: Black color with a thick creamy beige head. Nice lacing.
Aroma: Coffee and some roasted malt.
Palate: Medium to full body. Moderate sweet and a mild bitterness. Soft carbonation.
Taste: Perfectly balanced coffee, chocolate and mild roasted malt. The coffee is most dominant. Dangerously well masked alcohol.
Overall impression: This is just pure class! Outstanding! Especially from a can!
Personal stats: Can from a trade with RobertDale

Dogbrick (8902) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Sample at the Willoughby PBCCP tasting on 11/17/2013: The beer pours a dark brown color with a medium light beige head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of coffee, malt and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of roasted coffee, malt and earthy hops. The finish is roasty with an espresso aftertaste. Above average overall.

Lukaduke (2436) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Can thanks to JustDrinkIt ! Pours a deep burnt umber color with a big sticky eggshell foam. The nose is pure espresso with traces of chocolate and a bit of dark fruit and licorice deep within the roast notes. The palate follows with a rich coffee presences thats fresh not burnt and charred to death... which leads the coffee notes into a dark plum, earthy roast with a lingering fresh ice coffee finish. Pretty fricken good substitute for a coffee seeing as its 8am and I was all out of beans :)

Roast, roast, & then some more roast! This is excellent! The body is so light & creamy but the flavor is so rich & powerful! Deep dark stout pour w/ a mocha head & great lacing. I canít believe this comes in at 8% cause its so drinkable! Awesome!

AbbeyRoade (432) - Missouri, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Bleh! Sometime off about this one big time. Very very tinny, metallic, sour flavor. Grossness and not a full thick creamy body like Iíd hope for with this beer.
