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.

Beachmaster (145) - Oklahoma, USA - OCT 13, 2014
12 oz can into a pint glass. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a medium tan head that slowly fades, leaving good lacing. Nose is coffee and dark roast malt. Taste follows the nose, with a medium finish. Slight hop bitterness on the finish. Very well-balanced.

A really weak java stout. Very slight hints of chocolate and coffee. This stout taste very watered down.

"huge aroma and flavor of coffee (espresso specifically) and fudge, amid some dark heavily roasted malts. I liked this quite a bit, and if there wasn’t the slightest hint of vegetal astringency, this would be world class!"
