COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Dark black pour with a reddish-brown head and good lacing. Aroma is roasted coffee with a little spice and earth. Flavors follow the aroma, with some chocolate a nice bitter finish.

Scubatrip (602) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - NOV 4, 2014
From a bomber bottle, pours black with a thin tan head but lovely lacing. Full aroma of espresso, some bitterness, roasted malts. Taste is largely espresso, bittering coffee beans, but enough roasted malt to keep it a beer. Smooth with a hint of bittering hops at the end. Pretty good one here.

this does for stout what Coffee Bender did for brown...for those who like a little beer with their coffee. I’m sure there was stout underneath somewhere, but it was hard to tell. awesome (if you like espresso) aroma of stright up iced espresso. bittersweet and smooth. would be awesome for/with breakfast."

nearbeer (3808) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2014
650 ml. Pours jet black with a lasting film of creamy bubbles. Aroma is at first espresso and sourish cream, but turns unwisely to scorched toast. Taste shows dark chocolate, dark toast, vanilla and coffee. Turns to a milk chocolate and tart blackberry finish. Medium body is watery and has a pleasant, low-medium carbonation.

ljthiessen (463) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a medium beige head. Aroma is espresso and dark roasty malts, a touch of soy sauce. Flavour is fairly bitter espresso with a sweet malt to balance, a bit of lactose. A little light bodied, but flavourful. A pretty nice espresso stout.

jhp40219 (316) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bomber. Pours black with a large chocolate head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma of espresso, coffee, milk chocolate, and black licorice. Big espresso, fresh roast coffee and smooth milk chocolate with a hint of black licorice. Big creamy texture, full bodied, medium-low carbonation, amazing chocolate and coffee finish. Very, very good beer!

swesson (254) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2014
From a bomber. Pours inky black with a thick brown head. Smells of espresso, of course, and of cocoa and some vanilla notes, too. Tastes of long-roasted coffee beans and malted barley. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maltser85 (307) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Pours basically black with a tan head. Big espresso notes on the nose. Combination of coffee grounds and beans. Nice roast and mild chocolate notes come through too. Taste is more of the same. The coffee on this is really tasty. Nice sticky finish. Body is nice for only 6%. Delicious with 25% Lindeman’s Framboise.

Westmeister (1804) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Light bodies stout. Big aroma and taste of fresh ground coffee. Big bold coffee. Dark brown. Nice sipper. Some dark chocolate. Sweetness is dominated by coffee, I like that though.

Bottle to stout glass. Aroma is tons of coffee and roast. A bit of chocolate as well but it's slight in this bottle. The pour is super dark brown with a really nice light brown head that lingers throughout. Taste is similar to the nose. Tons of coffee and roast. Really well done beer. Love it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
