COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cup A Joe Coffee Creme Stout uses Higher Grounds roasted fair trade espresso beans in every facet of the brewing process. Prominent aromatics of malt, espresso, and cocoa are abundant, and there are robust flavors of cream and coffee. This is the perfect morning night capper.

this gets a big ’meh’ from me. the coffee is more like burnt, used coffee grounds than fresh brewed coffee. big coffee grounds nose, bit of chocolate. about the same on the front, but the back end leaves you with used coffee grounds again.

Thanks to hoppymeal for this growler. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose is coffee, roast, earth, and lactose. Flavor is deep and dark: roasted, earthy coffee with hints of milk and cream. It tastes like an excellent cup of coffee, but made better. Absolutely excellent. Simple, yet deep and incredible.

12 ounce bottle courtesy of CrellMoset. Thanks! Pours a dark black color with a medium brown head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of rich dark coffee, rich dark chocolate, cream and caramel. Lots of bitter roastiness. Taste is dark chocolate and coffee with some faint apple-like fruity notes. Light sugary notes.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2010 12oz bottle poured into DFH snifter. A - Pours black with a tan-colored head that disipiates into a thin ring around the edge of the glass and nothing more. Looks just like a black cup of coffee, who woulda thunk? S - You can smell the Higher Grounds Organic Coffee in the brew, which smells completely amazing, I might add. Smells like a cup of black high-end coffee, chilled. There’s a hint of alcohol mixed in there as well, but the coffee is the over-powering monster. T - High-end coffee, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, blended awesomely with just a hint of alcohol. A perfect example of how a coffee-flavored beer should taste. M - Full bodied, rich and creamy, low carbonation that doesn’t get in the way of what this brew is trying to tell you and a creamy finish. D - This is one amazing coffee stout. If you’re a coffee lover, then this is the stout for you. Simply excellent...’nuff said.

Bottle received as a gift from Michigan. Pours black with a nice brown head. Permeates the aroma of coffee grounds. There is no way that you could create a more accurate coffee aroma. The coffee flavor on the palate is thankfully just as great with an added note of toasted malt. I can’t say that I picked up on much cream, but this is certainly one of my favorite Shorts beers, regardless.

WakeandBake (549) - Greenville, Michigan, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Bottle . A fairly dark black pour with a small foamy tan head medium carbonation, nice jagged lacing left behind. Aroma of ground coffee, dark chocolate , caramel , burnt marshmallow and dark roasted barley. Flavor is very nice , ground coffee , chocolats , caramel , and a touch of creme, very roasty and best at room temp, some woody notes with hints of vanilla maybe . Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel . Long slightly sweet roasty finish with hints of alcohol but in a good way, maybe some hints of burbon , very nice and very drinkable without beeing too sweet . Another awesome brew from Shorts , tahnk you Shorts ! ! ! I love you guys !

On tap. Poured black with a coffee brown head. Aroma was full of espresso coffee notes with a nice roasted malt undertone. Flavor was amazingly refreshing with a nice coffee flavor and undertones of roasted malts and a slight chocolate note.

Growler pours blackness with full frothy light mocha head. The aroma is very coffee like with a modest level of burnt malts around the edges. The taste has a smooth and almost velvety mouth feel. I get flavor notes of solid dark roasted coffee moving toward sweet malts and some mild caramel notes. Very nice mix of flavors here.

HonkeyBra (3798) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2009
Oh man. Black pour with mud colored head that leaves a rim around the glass. Big coffee aroma with a bit of vanilla cream. Some roasty chocolate goodness. Flavor is excellent for a coffee stout. Strong, rich coffee, with hints of cream. Creamy mouthfeel with a bit of coffee grounds and a milky note in the finish. Like all Shorts beers, this is bad ass.
