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.

TwinBeer (58) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Pours dark black with beige head and great lacing down the glass. Aroma of coffee hits you in the face with chocolate and sweet malt. Taste is quite the same with full body also taste of chocolate pudding with nice biter aftertaste that doesn’t linger. Overall a great stout, but man i hope the caffeine doesn’t keep me up tonight.

DandyWolfFloyd (977) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2016
Aroma - rich coffee roast and chocolate. Appearance - the body is black. The head is a fallow brown and about 1 1/2" and has tight head retention. Head slowly settles. Lacing and some alcohol cloying. Taste - has rich espresso - you can taste the fresh grind, chocolate pudding, roast, and alcohol. Palate - full body, chewy and thick, the carbonation is average, the finish is rich in roast ~ the astringency is stout and last long in the roof of your palate.

dlihcsnatas (570) - Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Black brew with small fast fading head. Smells of chocolate and coffee. Taste is the same with lots of chocolate malts and a really good coffee that is a perfect match for this cold morning. Enjoying this setting next to the wood stove while waiting for the temp to rise so I can go outside.
