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 (6221) - 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.

355 ml bottle.
Originally rated on 20100219.
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.

arminjewell (6175) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 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.

after4ever (6129) - Brier, Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2007
12-oz. Thanks, Theisti! Pours opaque black with a sudsy, tallish tan head that falls quickly to film. Minimal lace. Sour, chalky, heavily coffee-ish nose. Watery, nearly still, very coffee-forward on the attack. Light mid-palate and virtually absent finish. Pleasant but a bit of an unbalanced coffee bomb.

BBB63 (6045) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 19, 2003
At Hop in the City: Very dark brown hue witrh good head and okay lace. Starbucks Mocha coffee aroma is noticeable. Nose hints of sharp hop twang, fleshy fruit, oatmeal, and leather. The taste starts bittersweet chocolate and expresso, then detected some aromatic and grassy hops. Very bitter and dry finish. Creamy and lively mouthfeel. Damn, this is a great coffee versus oatmeal stout. Recommended to anyone who like coffee based stouts.

I first tried this quite awhile ago and I wasn’t a huge fan of coffee beers... but going back, it’s a nice decent brew.
