This collaboration with Kaldi’s Coffee uses the cold toddy method of extraction for the coffee. We mix it with Oatmeal Stout for an exceptionally delicious beer.

On tap at the brewpub. Dark brown pour with a very small head. Strong coffee aroma with some vanilla as well. Flavor is mainly coffee with what I thought was a decent amount of hops as well. Some vanilla and oatmeal notes picked up as well.

A good sized light tan head fades slowly but not entirely. The body is not opaque, deep rusty brown with wood hints. The aroma is completely bursting at the seams with coffee, relatively fresh smelling, apparently good quality. Yet another vehicle for coffee delivery, where roasted coffee notes are so prevalent that little else is detectable underneath. What is notable is a soft chocolate raisin combination and and sexy grain bill. This may be almost ridiculously dominated by coffee but it smells fantastic. The flavor is unidimensional and excessively astringent, lacking pleasantries or complexities from complimentary bitterness found in better coffee or better employment and extraction procedures. Bitterness is light, sweetness light-mild, astringency too high. The mouthfeel is pretty smooth, lightly to moderately carbonated and medium bodied with soft and intermittent watery pockets.

Pours a rich, deep chestnut color. Aroma is the expected coffee dominant force I anticipated. There is an interesting smoked note coming through, like alder wood smoke, that is intriguing. Flavor is, of course, coffee dominant, but there is an acidic note that tempers.the roasted/bitter notes, brigning an awkward finish.

Another one of my favorite beers. I can usually only have one or two a night, due to the extreme taste.

12 oz. bottle acquired in trade w/ Acknud. pours black with small off white head. Nose is strongly of coffee. Flavor is strongly of coffee also. Which shouldn’t be a surprise, judging from the name. Mouthfeel is moderate with a slight oilyness.

Pours black with frothy tan head. Smells just like roasted coffee beans. Taste is smoother than expected with roasted coffee, vanilla, and has a nice creamy mouthfeel.

Thanks to hopdog for sharing this growler... Appears a near black with brown edges and a tan head that fades into a mild cap and a hearty collar. Streaky rings and spots of lacing are left all around the glass. Smell is of mocha, cream, java grounds, and roasted nuts. Taste is of the mentioned aromas with some vanilla cream and a hint of caramel coming through in the flavors. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied, with sweet cream and bitter coffee grounds battling it out along the palate. I’m usually skeptical when it comes to these coffee beers but I enjoyed this one.

Bottle. Black with quick head. Smells of malt and coffee. Nice flavor but a bit of a watery finish. Easy to drink a lot of.

Draft 10 oz. glass at Schlafly Bottleworks. Truly a coffee beer! Black & heartless dark coffee smell. Tick this highly if you like your java. Black color, tan stout head with some lacing. Tastes for all the world like a fizzy espresso. Oatmeal cuts back on stout astringency to let coffee bitterness take center stage.

Bottle with a big thanks to gregis
Pours black, just a hair shy of opaque. Tan head. Smell is strong coffee all around. Hint of metal peeking through the wet bitter coffee grind smell. Taste is largely the same. Gritty wet strong coffee grind flavor with a hint of sweetness, and ending bitterness. Good strong coffee flavored beer with a nice mildly thick body and appropriate carbonation. Just a touch simple and one-note, but I still liked it a lot. Definitely worth a try if you like coffee beers.
