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.

Aromas of espresso (!) and chocolate, with a slight touch of oak or whiskey. Incredibly light on the palate -- enough to make me check the alcohol content again. Whispery finish. Lots of coffee, of course, and a punch of piney hops to wake up the palate. A bit thin, less creamy.

Bottle. Aroma is toasted malts and grain with subtle coffee. Taste is dark roasted coffee and almost burnt malts. Body is a clean black, full across the palate and long coffee finish. This would be a solid stout by itself but the coffee adds to the experience in a well balanced way. It still has that old style stout charm too. Great beer.

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home on Thanksgiving morning. Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma and flavors of chocolate and coffee. Medium to heavy bodied, high carbonation, toasty finish. Smooth and tasty.

Bottle from Nugget in Vacaville. Pours a dark brown color. The coffee smell is super strong. Good strong coffee flavor, but just a little light bodied for my taste. Solid brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle poured a dark brown hue w/ medium tan fully diminishing head. Medium nose of espresso roast. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are espresso, roasted malts, dark chocolate, and lemon zest. Big bodied, nice mouthfeel, and a light dryness in the finish.

10/26/13. $10.99 Bomber from RW. Drank after wasabi dinner. HUGE HUGE HUGE coffee nose. I thought this is it...the perfect coffee beer...not so fast my friends. Taste is a little bit of a letdown being that the smell was so good. Mouthfeel is a little watery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Azand222 (171) - Westminster, Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2013
bottled. Very dark brown pour with a dark tan head. The aroma is all malty and espresso, pretty strong. The taste is very malty to start, pretty full bodied and leaves a dry finish. Overall a decent stout.

I believe I got a collaboration brew with boulder beer. Aroma is nice with coffee notes and other roasted dark malts. Flavor also has the intense espresso flavor which is really nice. This reminds me a lot of Lagunitas espresso brew. Love these!
