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.

Cunningham (4775) - 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

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 can’t believe this comes in at 8% cause its so drinkable! Awesome!

I have turned into a sucker for bold beers, and this passes the test. It is straight up coffee. It is was 5:30 am, I just woke up, and you put this on ice I wouldn't notice the beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

10/11/13. Can from Derek in a trade. In terms of pure coffee stouts, this could be the most coffee of them all. Pours black. Smell is amazing coffee. Taste is amazing coffee!! If I needed to find a flaw, maybe a little watery on the mouth feel. If you're a pure coffee stout lover, I think it would be hard pressed to find a better one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow! This is great! Thanks Doug! Aroma is pretty subtle but what it lacks in smell it more than makes up in awesome toasted malt, cocoa, coffee, muffin flavor. Very smooth too! Love it!

Pours a dark black with clean burnt copper edges and one finger of sudsy white tan head. Nose shows an intense amount of coffee. Sweet java roast and a touch of bitter coffee acidity. Coffee dominates flavor too, doesn’t seem like the base beer really stands up to it. Acidity dries/leans the body out. That’s usually my experience with coffee, cuts body badly. Acidic with some coffee roast.

Can from Total Wine Summerlin, Las Vegas. Dark brown pour, foamy tan head. Aroma of freshly ground coffee, chocolate, caramel and slightly spicy. Flavor is bitter coffee with roasted malts and sweet sugared chocolate. Very well balanced and with a full body. Lovely brew.

Who loves coffee! You’ll get plenty of that in the aroma. The taste is like a well blend fresh brewed cup; however, it is lacking some complexity and some serious body. Overall impression is good but could’ve been great...
