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.

bhensonb (11059) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 14, 2010
Bomber from ericandersnavy. Thanks man. Pours very black, though the stream from the bottle had ruby aspects. 3-finger foamy tan head. Aroma is very strong coffee, with a hint of chocolate. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is very smooth coffee, with a hint of smoke, and I’d say definite dark chocolate. Finishes coffee bitter. So where’s the Big Shot Latte? Good stuff!
