COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We will be brewing our New Brighton Coffee Stout in small batches using coffee beans roasted by our neighbors at Harry and Bean’s Coffee Company. All profits from the New Brighton Coffee Stout will be donated to the Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigantine in honor of George Gerlach, the legendary founder of Surfers Supplies in Ocean City, who passed away this year.

First I’ve seen this in bottles, this one 9.0% abv. Nose is nice coffee, light mocha and occasional sweet tones, luxurious with slight chocolate and not going bonkers on aggressive roast. Just a touch of malt fruitiness peeking around the corner. Pours pitch with a rocky light brown head. Taste sweet up front and dries only a little bit, mocha/cocoa and chocolate with heavy brewed coffee overtones, very lightly acidic, about on par with its lowish bitterness; nice yeasty/espresso crema finish, though that may be attributable to my hurried pour. Full body with faint (mastered!) alcohol, berries, and malt sweetness, overall very smooth and with few enough volumes of CO2 to evoke the descriptor "slime". Rich and creamy, really. I love coffee stouts like this, largely because they’re so hard to find; not a sweet, syrupy mess loaded with adjuncts, nor is it a punishing dry and bitter roast-monster, it’s somewhere in the dulled middle, sultry-smooth with workingman’s beans.

Black with thin light brown head; aroma of vanilla, fruit and coffee; flava is distinct coffee bitterness with sweet notes of buttery caramel and slight hint of alcohol; feels rich thick and creamy; finishes dry with roasty bitterness and a tinge of alcohol.

PhillyCraft (3190) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Pours heavy black with light mocha head, light soapy lacing. Aromas and flavor of heavy bean, but not well roasted, melted choc and root beer water ice, wood, roasted malt, and light prune. Finishes boozey and kinf peaty. Very ashy in mouth and light bodied. Not a fan of this one.

Capa (1998) - Manama, BAHRAIN - FEB 17, 2013
Black with a tan head. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, cocoa, and some earthy notes. Medium, creamy body. Dark coffee beans, cocoa, roasted malt, burnt malt, and some earthy hop. Finish is drying and bittersweet. Good brew.

Beautiful pour with a tan lacing head. The aroma is very nice with a good deal of coffee and chocolate. The flavor was a little harsh, a bit too bitter. I was hoping for something a little more creamy and smooth. The coffee lingers long after the beer is gone. Nice beer.

No bottling information.
Appearance: The body is black through all but the edges, exposing a deep brown body. The head was reluctant to appear despite a hard pour, but I got a thin brown head that leaves a creamy ring. Nice looking beer.
Aroma: Coffee is strong and the primary aroma here with a nice chocolate backing. This is nice and better than I expected.
Taste: Sweet cocoa and coffee intertwine beautifully though they feel somewhat muted, but in combination with the creamy soft body I think it goes very well together.
Palate: Thick, creamy, full-bodied beer with soft carbonation. It’s like a beer milkshake.
Overall: I think this is a very solid coffee stout. The flavors are balanced very nicely and the coffee isn’t in your face like other coffee stouts. The body is the best thing about this beer though. Well done.

Dark brown with no head or lacing. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, light caramel, and burnt wood. Taste of roasted malts, some coffee, vanilla beans, and light smoke.
