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.

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.

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.

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.

This one took me by surprise the coffee was overwellming by I am not a coffee drinker I love the smell of fresh brewing coffee and this is what the aroma was like. What do you expect from a name like cuppa Joe. The texture was creamy with a slight bitter after taste not my first grab but a good experince.

Very fresh bottle from Michigan, latest seasonal release. Pours black with tons of foam. Coffee in aroma, in the taste, with lots of creme. The bottle surprised me by saying there was milk lactose. Tastes more bitter than 30 ibu would have you believe.Above average mouthfeel.

Pours dark with a thin head. Smells wonderful. Lots of coffee an sugar. Thick mouthfeel. Taste is coffee, caramel and some chocolate. Starts with a pleasant bitter coffee that works into a sweet and creamy chocolate caramel. Lots going on here as it warms, what a great coffee stout. Damn wish I had more than one. Thanks Santa.

Bottle from Champanes, has a brown-black pour with a tan bubbled head that recedes to a thin cover, aromas of coffee, roasted malt, malt and sugar sweetness, flavors of cold coffee, roasted malt, cream and sugar sweetness with faint chocolate, has a small bitterness at the finish and coffee flavor trails thereafter, has a medium mouth feel or so, easy to drink, I like this beer, a nice mixture of coffee and a sweet stout.
