COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Ernest (6259) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Oct 06 bottling. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain/husks, stale coffee), with notes of twigs, vegetation, ashtray. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Really disappointing aroma after trying the oatmeal stout, which is apparently the base beer for this...husky, poor coffee character, vegetal. More acidic than the oatmeal stout as well. Eh.

RealAleDave (45) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 18, 2007
Black with mahogany highlights. Very fine tan head settles to an incomplete cap. Nose is really good dark coffee. Roasty, rich, with some chocolate and earthy notes. Total domination by the coffee, and no hint that this is a beer, rather than a cool cup of high quality Joe. Medium in the mouth. Much better balance between the malt and coffee, with the former actually making an appearance here. Quite long and lingering on the finish. Nice stuff. Soft, low carbonation gives a richer feel to the mouth than is really there. A bit too much coffee to have more than one or two at a sitting, but I still like this quite a bit.

Pours back with a good off-white head. Aroma of coffee & malt. The coffee flavor dominates but with a follow-up of chocolate. Very unique & good. Schlafly rocks!

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JAN 10, 2007
On tap at BW3. Red tinted dark dark brown with thin light tan head. Nose sweet with lactic smells, a bit creamy, roast, a little coffee. Too sweet, unbalanced. Mouthfeel low carbonation, with watery body for style. Sweet coffee aspects bitter and overly sweet. Milkiness disappears. Tiny roast, unbalanced sweetness. Lactic finish, too sweet aftertaste.

jgd0608 (187) - Zeeland, Michigan, USA - DEC 19, 2006
Bottle. Pours very dark brown, almost black. Has on finger of a creamy tan froth. Smells of Roasted coffee primarily, and also chocolate, and hazelnut, caramel. Wow and it actually tastes like coffee as well, a cold, malty, carbonated coffee. Wouldn’t mind of these with my breakfast in the mornin.

This beer is all about the deep roasty coffee aroma and flavor. Dark, rich roasted coffee all the way.

Bottle from Secret Santa. Well the aroma makes up a huge amount of the score on this brew. Smells like you had just opened a maxwell house columbian blend can of coffee. Black body with tan head. Flavor was like drinking cold roasted coffee. Smooth on the palate thanks Santa.
