UPDATED: JAN 10, 2006 Freakiní awesome stuff. Pours a very, very deep brown, decent tan head on top. Aroma is GREAT, coffee dominates, undertones of hops. Flavor is again srong coffee, sweet malts, and a roasty, tobacco finish. Very good, indeed.

Pour is a deep black with almost no head. Aroma is a very strong coffee. Oh boy here goes the taste. OH wow that is very strong. It more like a espresso stout. Coffee flavor is overpowering. Grainy and sandy as it goes down. Tasty in a way but drink in small batches.

One thing I liked about moving to St. Louis was that most decent liquor stores carry extensive Schlaftly beers. The clerk told me this one was in last night and I had to try it. Not much different than the Schlafly Oatmeal Stout. Its good but really Iíve tasted more coffee in other stouts. Canít say I didnít like it though. Another good beer by Schlafly.

Not thier finest work. The Coffee flavor was very bitter. The aroma was very decieving. Iíll stick with the oatmeal next time.

Medium brown pour, with foamy light tan head. Strong roasted coffee aroma. Pronounced dark coffee flavor on top of a solid stout. An espresso beer. Pretty good for a St. Louis brew.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2004 Sampled this beer at the Great Taste of the Midwest in Madison WI. Even though my scores on this are accurate and well researched, Da Man wants me to say more about the beer, so I will. Really not one of Schlafly's better beers. I am disapointed.

#1000 rating, and cool enough, it happened on the same day that my truck hit 200,000 miles on the way from Chicago to St. Louis. This one has a deep brown color with a creamy tan head. Strong nose of fresh espresso beans and chocolate... like eating those chocolate covered beans. Sweet coffee and creame flavor initially, then a nice even milk and scotch flavor, finishing off with a thick, robust finish. The flavor doesn't match the aroma, though, and with a little unwanted butter in the finish, this isn't the best coffee stout, but I still love anything that includes my two favorite drugs. mmmmmm

Hop in the City '03: Black, with a thin white foam. Whole coffe beans seem to be resting in the bottom of the glass. Aroma consists of multiple levels of smokiness - sweet to bitter. Slowly roasted milk chocolate combined with fresh coffee. This is very fresh and very pleasant.
