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.

yngwie (13567) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2012
Can. A clear-looking, dark brown beer topped by a dense, light beige head. Heavy doses of dark coffee on the nose, maybe a bit one dimensional, but itís very pleasant. Some roasted malts and resin too. Bitterness, coffee, more coffee and even more coffee in the flavor. I donít like coffee the regular way, this way itís fine. Pleasant bitterness in the end, and lots of coffee of course. Might be a bit one dimensional, but really pleasant anyway. 120817
