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.

MIBRomeo (2555) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2006
Dark brown w/ a full light tan head nice lacing. Huge coffee aroma nice heavily roasted malts some over roasted chocolate. Palate is to light some nice texture but not much to it almsot like a thick coffee. Flavor is very coffee, while a good coffee very very coffee. A dry chocolate and some light roasted malts. A fairly blah coffee stout, definatelly no where near Peche.. I want to open a bottle of that tonight.... maybe I will.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 9, 2006
Deep red-brown body, somewhat translucent, thick beige head. Buttery, roasty, coffee aroma. Coffee dominated the body, with notes of butter and ever-present roasted malts. Medium-bodied. Unremarkable; nothing separates this from other stouts of average repute.

TAR (2475) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2007 Dark mahogany. Puffy light tan foam clings to the glass. Tangy and airy aroma with notes of roasted grains and burnt cocoa. Mild coffee presence. Tongue tickling carbonation and grainy textured. Somewhat tangy, initially, with an expansive airiness which washes away the minute richness. Lushness is next to nil at the center, and the body remains light on its feet as coffee and chalky roast generate more dryness. Well-placed roasty depth is noted at room temperature, but isn’t much of a factor due to the pervasive airiness. Coffee yields a bit of brashness as you swallow, while bits of roasted grains, toffee, and chocolate seal the finish. Pretty uninspiring version, as the nose is overly airy/estery and lacks malt definition to coincide with the coffee, and the carbonation’s lack of density hinders the character and complexity of the malt.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2005
Pour is dark dark brown with a nice big bubbled tan head...smell is rich coffee with light notes of cocoa...taste is nice...good coffee flavor, not over the top like some other coffee beers...some faint chocolate toward the finish which is nicely smooth bitter...not over powering...some metallic qualities too...

12 oz. bottle picked up at Corral on a recent trip to St. Louis. while not a huge fan of coffee beers, this one was quite enjoyable. dark ruby brown on the pour with a tan head that settles down to some very nice lace. taste is a balanced blend of coffee, oatmeal and hop bitterness. good stuff.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2005
Translucent, deep burgundy body with a short-lived sudsy light tan head. Aroma and flavor of chocolate-covered espresso beans, a hint of plastic phenols, and dark chocolate. Powerful coffee flavor although hop flavor does come through and the medium-high bitterness has the impression of being hop driven rather than roast or coffee driven. Mostly dry. An enjoyable coffee beer. Thanks Eric.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 6, 2005
Very dark brown body with a dark khaki colored head. The aroma is dominated by the coffee with some fresh hay and chocolate. The taste is strong coffee with some light roasted walnuts. There is also some dark chocolate. There is not a bitter aftertaste that some coffee stouts seem to have. Thanks for the bottle, Duane.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2005
12 oz bottle via trade with Duane - Thanks Duane! - Pours deep dark brown with ruby highlights and a creamy tan head that stays well and laces down the english pint in layers. Aroma is straight coffee. Flavor is mostly coffee, some roasted nut flavor. Bitter dry finish. Palate is medium bodied and a little thin for a stout.. Drinkable but pretty one dimensional.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 4, 2005
On tap at the Bottleworks brewpub. Black and mahogany with a dark tan head. Heavy coffee aroma. Coffee flavor is so strong, you need a cheesecake with this beer. Good body, head, and texture.

antzman (315) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown, almost black with a thin off white head. The aroma is like fresh roasted coffee beans. The flavor is very strong coffee, maybe a bit too strong. Very clean finish.
