COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This collaboration with Kaldiís Coffee uses the cold toddy method of extraction for the coffee. We mix it with Oatmeal Stout for an exceptionally delicious beer.

Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. The pour is a nice, deep ruby with a healthy mocha head. Semi sheety lace. Aroma is light hotel coffee but fairly muted. Taste is hotel coffee, very one-dimensional. Watery palate. Nothing offensive here but just super weak sauce at 5.7% for stout. At least itís not sugar sweet or syrupy. Pretty neutral and inoffensive.

Thanks to Beerhandy for this. Pours deep brown with medium tan head. Aroma of malt, huge coffee, jalapeno oil. Tastes malty, very oatish, coffeeish, with some chocolate and hops at the finish. More chocolate syrup as it finishes, with tons of coffee all the way down. This one reminded me of Bellís Kalamazoo and Founderís Breakfast Stout, although it wasnít as complex or refined. Still, this one surprised me, and I loved every sip of it. Jeeves, get me another, my good sir!

arminjewell (9207) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Nice deep black pour, thin tan head. Big coffee and chocolate aroma, with notes of roast as well. Taste is a big iced coffee, with hints of roast in the middle and a bitter finish. Very coffee forward, but with a nice creamy, oat palate.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Dark brown pour with a small head. Cold coffee grounds and mild chocolate. Not bad.

"i donít know anything about the "cold toddy method" but the coffee presence in this beer was super-fresh, almost like chewing on a fresh picked bean. definitely at the fore-front. another one that covered up the beeryness of the beer, but not in a bad way. smooth texture, medium bodied. some light roast and chocolate and hops to accompnay the coffee. Another nice beer from Lou!"

phaleslu (8969) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2015 Draft at Over/Under in St. Louis. Pours a very dark brown color with a small, creamy tan head. Aroma and flavor are dominated by coffee, with notes of roasted malts, chocolate, brown sugar, vanilla, and toast. Rich and smooth, and light-medium bodied. Roast coffee aftertaste. Sure to please coffee drinkers, and a nice coffee stout overall. Re-Rate: Had some of my wifeís draft at Ei8ht Ball. This is a nice coffee stout. Smells great, drinks really easy.

3fourths (8962) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 22, 2004
#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

MartinT (8957) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Roasted coffee beans and their charred edges are surrounded by tiramisu sweetness and chocolate in this agreeable Coffee Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam sits atop the darkness.
-The finish is also a touch acidic.
-Carbonation is a bit too prickly for my liking in this type of dessert-like flavor profile.
-This is not trying to reinvent the style. Itís just doing a good job, and thatís fine with me when Iím in the mood for coffee flavors in beer.

Bottle.

on tap @ Radio Maria. Deep copper brown, thin beige head. Rich coffee and roast aroma, hints of ash. Nice, natural rich coffee and roast flavours with underlying cocoa. Dry finish. Tasty.

Pours black color with a small off-white head. Aroma of coffee, dark roasted malts, cocoa and some chocolate. Flavor of licorice, coffee notes, cocoa and caramel malts. Very nice and roasty.
