A favorite of many coffee-loving beer drinkers, Big Shot Espresso Stout boasts about a shot of espresso in every pint. It pours jet black with a rich creamy brown head. This World Beer Cup winner has roasted coffee and grainy malt aromas. The earthy, dark chocolate flavors of the espresso showcase the flawless balance of the beer. It’s rich and strong like a good espresso, creamy and smooth like a good stout. The ultimate breakfast beer.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a short lived mocha colored head, with some lacing, over a black brown (SRM 40) apparently clear body.....nose is heavy coffee, light chocolate, bit of hop grass.....taste is thick with sweet malts with heavy coffee, and chocolate tones.....mouth feel is lighter than expected, less than medium, carbonation makes for a creamy mouth. This is dark and slightly sweet, with a bit too much coffee.

Bottle pours out a dark brown almost black topped with a tan head. Aroma is of day old coffee, rich roast malts, and some sweetness. Taste is much of the aroma more of the coffee (odd Espresso Stout the name of this brew) So coffee who would have guessed. The rich sweet malts made this one for me.

Fairly viscous black pour for a lower abv beer, with an impressive tan lace - nose of coffee and vanilla beans, even a bit of maple and anise, with some tail-end roast and bitterness - creamy, medium-bodied - decent coffee flavor is showcase, without a great deal of the bitterness and/or acidity associated with it - black malt character compliments this - a bit of sweet cream character, nuttiness, vanilla bean and bittersweet chocolate - nicely balanced for a coffee beer, with the flavor showcased well.

Aroma - bold malt, hint of sweetness; Appearance - black, opaque, very thick creamy head, laces well; Taste - sweet malt front, coffee back, mild bitter finish; Palate - subtle crispness, great body; Overall - a tad rough around the edges yet still a wonderful brew.

Smells like iced coffee! Straight black color. Very much like alcohol meets iced coffee; very tastey!

Pours a deep black with a weak coffee nose. Flavor is deep, roasted coffee grounds. Average mouthfeel. Good beer; I’d drink more.

On tap at Eldora. Definate a coffee stout, but not much else. I would like this with a tasty breakfast burrito.

Rusty (1545) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 10, 2009
Bottle courtesy of BeerAndBlues Pours a silky dark brown almost black with a small brown head. Aroma is espresso, roasted malts, cream, caramel. The espresso aroma is really appealing. Flavor is huge roasty espresso goodness, chocolate, vanilla and a touch of bitterness. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but still quite good. I really dig the flavor profile on this one. Robust Imperial stout taste, with a little less alcohol. Good stuff.
