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.

I love this beer! Drank from a growler recently brought back from Short’s. Pours viscous black with a mocha colored head that fades to a ring of foam. Aroma of fresh roasted coffee beans, creme and some light chocolate. Flavor is like the perfect blend of rich roasted coffee, creme, and hot cocoa. There is also a nice biscuity aspect in the aftertaste, almost like a biscotti. Mouthfeel is pretty thick, rich and smooth, especially for the low ABV. There are so many coffee stouts nowadays but this one is a step above the rest. Truly superb.

Rich coffee aroma on this one. Lots of sweet chocolate and coco, with a good dose of fresh ground beans on the pallate. Not sure if this has the same Stout base as the Smore Stout, but i thought this was a littler heartier for a stout. Really good coffee stout, kind of a mix between DMMDI and Java Stout. Good stuff, thanks Derek!

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2009 Growler courtesy of a very generous trader, thanks man! The beer pours a very dark, motor oil black color with a 1/2 inch brown head. The aroma is of strong coffee and roasted malts. There is a lot of cream in the first sip with coffee following quickly. My only complaint with this beer is that it is a little thin. Regardless, this beer is one of my new favorite coffee stouts!

Growler from northernbrews, thank you sir! Black with a small dark tan head, fading to a swirling film before long. Coffee dominates the nose, with some roasted malts and brown sugar notes. A little lactose as well, which maybe is where I’m getting the cream note. Impressive. Flavor has more of the cream, but still plenty of coffee to back it up. I can only pick up on hints of the brown sugar, as it’s more lactose now. Bitterness peaks around a 2-3 in the finish. Smooth medium body with only a hint of carbonation. Wow, a very nice coffee stout.

Had this on tap at Crunchys in east lansing. Poured black with a small head. Smell was coffee, with some cream added. Taste was much the same, big and rich, super smooth. This is a sweeter stout and I thought it would be too much after awhile, but I finished the mug no problem. my buddy had founders breakfast, and I have to say that side by side, I think I know the winner.

Huge thanks to my man Jeff for hooking me up with this one. Everything I have ever wanted in a coffee beer. Pours a deep, dark, black. Lacing looks like cream, and it looks exactly like a cup of coffee in my glass. Aroma is big and bold, all coffee and cream, with a hint of roasted grain and a touch of chocolate. Flavor is exactly the same: dark strong coffee and cream, a bit of chocolate, burnt grains and malt. Thick and creamy on the palate. This is exactly how I like my coffee stouts. Delicious.

Big thanks to hopsleeroy for sharing some of this growler! Pours a dark black color with a very light beige head. SMell is robust, rich, oily coffee beans and chocolate. Taste is slightly creamy, and lots of very rich and oily roasted coffee beans. Medium body with light carbonation, that could be somewhat due to it having been growlered. Definitely one of the better coffee beers out there, I thought.

Thanks to Northernbrews for hooking us up with the Shorts! Pours very dark and thick. Aroma is STRONG coffee. Maybe the strongest coffee smell I’ve had in a beer, with the exception of Coffee Bender. Flavor is also strong on the coffee with a good sweetness to balance things. This is an exceptional coffee stout, and possibly the best I have had.

Draft. Pours a black body with a tan coffee head. Dark roasty coffee up front, creamy with roasted malt, sweet unrefined sugars. Some bitter chocolate hints of roasty coffee and a hint of smoke.

Growler shared by GodOfThunder. Pours pitch black with light brown head. Big roasted coffee aroma with dark chocolate. Bitter coffee and sweet chocolate flavors blend nicely. Full creamy body with mild carbonation. Very good.
