Organic Portland Roast Espresso Stout is a collaboration between the Laurelwood brewery and Portland Roasting. The beer features a blend of Ethiopian and Sumatran coffees specially selected by the Head Brewer at Laurelwood. The Organic and farm friendly coffees blend nicely with their smooth and mellow organic stout. The roasted character of the ale is nicely complimented by the coffee flavor and aroma.

Bomber from Taniguchi. Made with Portland Roasting Coffee this beer pours a deep inky black with a thick tan head and has a nice sweet espresso aroma that gives a touch of fruits and roast character.

Medium to Full bodied with a scratchy carbonation. The taste is a somewhat acrid dark bitter roasted coffee, some chocolate and a bit of lactose sweetness in the finish. A good beer to sip on a cold winter afternoon.

Great stout, full rich body with good coffee flavor. One high point is the lack of alcohol taste, a rarity for many a stout these days. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mcberko (16956) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out lots of espresso beans and roast. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of espresso beans upfront, with a little roast and a touch of cocoa. Medium bodied and pretty monolithic. Very nice.

Draught at Pumphouse, Richmond, BC; 6.4% ABV
Expected black, instead its dark mahogany, clean, with beige nitro head. Nice roasted malt aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, lightly sweet, some roasted malt, some coffee, but also some taste of "bad" coffee. More roastiness in the final.
Quite nice.
