COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the kind of beer that gives the word "stout" a reputation. Extra generous quantities of barley malt, followed by vigorous fermentation leaves this "imperial" heavy weight with 8% alcohol A.B.V. and a body as full as chocolate bread pudding. A complimentary and complex array of bitter notes comes form potent American hops, earthy British hops, black-roasted malts and, of course, coffee. Santa Fe Brewing Company uses only top-quality ingredients like organically grown East Timor coffee beans blended with New Guinea coffee beans, locally roasted by Ohoris Coffee House. Its heavenly flavor and aroma cant be beat or imitated.

chinchill (4821) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 6, 2013
12 oz can dated best by July 2013 poured a very dark brown color, clear, with a light brown head. Nose: more hops than expected, matched in strength by coffee, with dark malts more in the background. Flavor: mild-moderate bitterness until the moderately bitter finish and aftertaste. Good balance of hops, malts and coffee. Lot of coffee in the aftertaste. Some very dark roast flavor but only a hint of char. Feel: carbonated is a bit more lively than expected, but works well; smooth; medium-full body. The ABV is well hidden. O: an attractively priced, high quality, robust coffee stout. Recommended.

TwinBeer (58) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Pours dark black with beige head and great lacing down the glass. Aroma of coffee hits you in the face with chocolate and sweet malt. Taste is quite the same with full body also taste of chocolate pudding with nice biter aftertaste that doesnt linger. Overall a great stout, but man i hope the caffeine doesnt keep me up tonight.

Beerman6686 (6606) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2013
This one poured a medium brown color with a large frothy beige head. Aroma was lots of medium to dark roast coffee, light chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor was similar with the coffee really standing out without it becoming like coffee creamer, or having the green vegetal taste that sometimes comes from coffee beers.

EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 20, 2013
The aroma is reminiscent of coffee and roasted malts, and the appearance combines an opaque black with a large and foamy tan head that fades quickly to a ring. The taste is mildly bitter and mildly sweet, and the palate combines a medium body, slick texture, a lightly bitter finish (which tastes more like black coffee than a beer), and a soft carbonation.

berrya785 (441) - Kansas, USA - MAY 17, 2013
12 oz can. Pours an opaque dark brown/black color with a nice fluffy tan head. Aroma is fresh roasted coffee beans and roasted malt. Taste is sweet with lots of coffee and bittersweet chocolate.

Phatdog1 (179) - Brentwood, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 9, 2013
12 oz can thanks to Crajun. This holds perhaps the biggest coffee aroma of any beer that I have had. Amazing roastyness fills the air. Weaker than hoped for mouthfeel, but the flavor is right alongside with the nose. 8% abv is no where to be found. Very drinkable. Javaheads unite! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Steverus0 (263) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - MAY 9, 2013
A little too effervescent for a stout, but perhaps this stout needs the extra carbonation to smoothen the deep, rich espresso character. Nicely roasted malts and a deep brown sugar and coffee character round out a brilliantly balanced flavor. Pleasant and drinkable, only the mouthfeel puts this brew off the top of its variety. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft sample at the Wigwam beer fest. Wow, this was nice and actually refreshing on a warm day. Like you took a well made sweet stout and mixed in a really high-grade coffee. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Very well made.
