Barista is a rich roasty coffee stout. A roasty yet creamy mouthfeel caries the subtle taste of Espresso coffee which we add in ground Arabica form at the end of the boil. This beer has the roast bitterness you’d expect from coffee but it also has a subtle sweetness in the finish, a real pick-me-up of a beer!

Bottled @ Broken Dreams, Borlänge. Black with a large tanned head, good lacing. Big rosted coffee bean aroma, really fresh grinded coffee. Dry and a bit fizzy mouthfeel. Really nice coffee taste, oily espresso beans, hard rosted notes, espresso, woody almost smoky notes. Dry finish.

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2014
Cask at The Falcon, Battersea on 21 Apr 2012. Poured black, with a dense tan head. Aroma of roast malt, coffee and burnt sugar. Fairly full mouthfeel. Initial flavour of mocha, cocoa and dark fruit and was too sweet for me. Finish had some burnt notes, with lingering espresso and condensed milk.

Piana bardzo obfita, kremowa, pięknie oblepiająca szkło. Barwa czarna, praktycznie nie przejrzyste. Aromat, kawa, kawa i jeszcze raz kawa z dodatkiem słodów i ostrych przypraw. Pierwsze co czuć to wysokie wysycenie, potem kawy cała masa, odrobinę wodniste. Przydałoby się więcej ciała, co ja piszę w ogóle ciało. Goryczka to w zasadzie gorzka kawa.

ElDesmadre (3160) - Mikołów, POLAND - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle. Fresh ground coffee coupled with tobacco, roast and ash. Unfortunately this beer is flawed with acetaldehyde (green apples) that even dominates the flavour for some time, together with the ashy part. The roast&coffee finish and creamy carbo are pleasant but green apples drag this beer down a bit.

mkel07 (5226) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique June 2013. Strong bitter coffee aromas permeate the air when this deep black beer is poured. Bitterness in the form of coffee beans fills the mouth.

wyrazisty, ale lekki stout. duzo kawy i palonosci w aromacie, w smaku rowniez wyrazna kawowosc, nieco wodniste odczucie w ustach, mocna, palono chmielowa goryczka. stawia na nogi, cho przydaloby sie wiecej pelni.

Bottle from Hop Hideout in Sheffield. Pours black with a frothy tan head. Great coffe aroma and taste with some burnt toast notes in there too. This is a nice beer with plenty of taste, but is slightly let down by being too light in body and very high in carbonation. If this as smoother and richer it would be great.
