A really well done coffee stout from Springhouse. I was worried at first considering I haven't been a fan of their other beers, but this one really wows me. Huge coffee nose with roasted malts and dark chocolate. Flavor is a blast of coffee, some roasted malts, dark chocolate, a touch of licorice, and a nice cacao sweetness.
Mouthfeel is silky smooth with just enough carbonation to carry the flavors through. Well done, Springhouse.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

22 oz bottle poured into tasting glasses at a bottle share

Bottle was roughly 3 weeks old.

The beer pours jet black with some deep brown shading around the surface. Not really any head and hard to agitate any out of the beer. The smell delivers coffee notes but not really anything else.

This beer tastes like 2 day old office coffee. The beer has absolutely no body. It is just as thin as coffee as well. I'm surprised someone would put this in a bottle. This recipe needs to be blown up. The coffee flavors taste stale, burnt, and old. They're strong but not palate numbing. The mouthfeel is so thin, which in this case helps the flavor leave quickly. A huge miss here.

2.88/5  rDev -28.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Poured from a 22, this one pours a deep, dark brown that looks black at a glance, but when held to the light, there's no ruby - just a deep, root-beer brown. A sandy tan/brown head rises on the pour but falls to a film in a minute or two.

At first it smells just like cold-pressed coffee, but upon closer inspection, there's a dry, roasty barley beneath. Really mono-tone with the roasted bean and barley, but delightfully so.

Starts with a nice blend of dry, clean raosted notes, almost like a clean brown ale crossed with a porter and soaked in coffee, which is quite enticing, but the delight doesn't last. It quickly nose-dives into an astringent, bitter, over-roasted coffee flavor. What was awesome in the nose came back to bite this beer in the flavor. Too bad.

Feels clean and smooth with just a soft foam of carbonation to add a touch of viscosity.

This is really almost too much to drink. The astringent over-roasted coffee flavor has made me contemplate a drain-pour, but I think I'll hold out. Too bad.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Large format bottle with no date anywhere. $6.?? at WFM. Poured into two pint glasses. Purchased about a week or two ago from the cold room. Label is different than the one shown. Capped not corked.

A- Very dark and murky. Sludge(coffee grounds?) from the bottom of the bottle changes the color to a lighter brown. Sticky head disappears about half way through the beer. Looks watery once the head dissipates.

S- Very coffee forward smell but it reminded me of crunching on a coffee bean more than a good cup of brewed coffee, dissipates after a few minutes.

T- coffee and some vanilla in the finish. Some roast but really nothing great here. Watery old iced coffee is what this reminds me of.

M- Thin and watery like a bad cup of diner coffee. Very little carbonation in the mouth.

O- Not one I will go back to. FBS blows this away and is a much better price point as well. Maybe this was an old bottle? Coffee smell was there so I think it was pretty fresh. Tried to support another local but this beer is unsupportable.

Poured from tap into pint at standard tap philly. Pours a deep brown mud with thick tan head. Awesome coffee aromas...straight up coffee. Taste is roasted coffee and chocolate. Not much else but is delicious. Smooth as silk. This is a fantastic coffee brew...highly recommend this one.

2.45/5  rDev -38.9%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Poured from a 22oz bottle to a 14oz snifter.

Appearance: Removing the cap from the bottle produces a loud pop! The contents quickly attempts to erupt from the bottle. Luckily just covering the top keeps the contents at bay. A slow pour is required to keep the foamy head in check. Pours dark black with a puffy fluffy mahogany head.

Smell: Very little coffee, odd tart cherry aromas overwhelm everything else.

Taste: The flavors follow the nose. A little bit of coffee and roasted malt are quickly over powered by tart cherry and a slightly metallic taste. Finishes very acidic.

Mouthfeel: Over carbonated and thin.

Overall: This bottle is clearly infected. I've been wanting to try this for quite a while, but this was a real let down. I hope I get the chance to revisit this with a better batch.

Many thanks to JMFoster for this one. I love a good coffee beer!

This is also #BOTG 24! And, a nice Astros win over the Mets to celebrate here today.

Poured from bottle into CBS Snifter. Huge carbonation on this, loosely connected brown tan fluffy head. Almost a gusher. After getting it into the glass, its a rich black color, the tan head remaining floats around the top of the glass. Smell- roasted malt, espresso, chocolate. A weird tart whiff...marachino cherries? strange to be in this beer. Taste- stingy carbonation, the espresso and roasty notes are there, but so is an off tart flavor. Uh oh...I think we might have an infection here. The mouthfeel and stingy carbonation is a major detractor from this beer's appeal, and the tart presence bothers me. Other than that, this is a decent take on a coffee beer.

1220th Review on BA
Bottle to snifter
22oz

Not sure if this was bottle from Cpabeer & Stormking47 or TroyG2352, so thanks to all of you

App- Black pour like coffee, brown head 2 finger. Great cling and stick.

Smell- Coffee grounds for days, earthy, dirt, dark chocolate. Was a bit ashy as well, but still picked up enough of the coffee to enjoy the aromatics

Taste- Really is like a black of coffee mixed in with a bit of malts. Has a thick licorice taste with a bit of anise but more prickly and mellow than stone. Maybe its too warm but if colder flavors wouldnt come forth as much.

Mouth- More of a light medium body with a lighter medium carbonation. Did leave a touch of ashy coffee but wasnt enough to really deter score to much. It was the lightness that brought it down for me.

Drink- A nice coffee forward stout. I am in the school of thought that when you say coffee and it needs to be a coffee stout. I think they found that beer.

Review from notes. Consumed at the Moo Bar.

A: Pours practically black with a very large tan colored head. Upon opening the growler, the carbonation caused a little bit of an overflow. Nice retention and lacing.

S: Tons of coffee beans and coffee grounds. There is a little bit of underlying roasted malt and a little chocolate, but the coffee dominates the aroma.

T: Similarly coffee forward. Not quite as strong as the aroma, but the coffee still dominates the flavor profile, a combination of grounds and beans. A little bit of chocolate, but like the aroma, the coffee dominates.

M: Medium bodied, maybe a tad thin, but moderate carbonation.

Poured from a corked and caged 750mL bottle into a 22 oz. Founders CBS snifter. Special note to kick off the review: This was the longest cork I've ever seen in a beer bottle. It measures nearly a full 1 1/2". I had to extract it with a pair of pliers.

Beer pours a midnight black with roughly a pinkie finger's width cream colored head that dissipates quickly. Minimal lacing. The smell is big time coffee. Coffee, and nothing else. Period. JUST coffee...and it's delightful. Dark and roasty with just a hint of sweetness. The taste is more of the same. It's like a carbonated cup of black coffee. This is very coffee forward, and at times, it's hard to imagine you're drinking a beer and not some carbonated coffee beverage. Very good indeed. The mouthfeel is a pleasant surprise. Unlike many coffee beers, this is smooth without either a high level of acidity, or a bitter finish. It doesn't linger save for a little bit. Very clean for the style. Overall this is a very very solid coffee stout, and one I'm glad to have had the chance to enjoy.

I had this on-tap at the taproom in Lancaster. Served in a sample glass.

Appearance: Pours almost black with some red at the edges. There is a layer of tan head that fades quickly.

Smell: Nutty malt with roasty coffee and a nice sweetness in the background. The overall smell is quite smooth.

Taste: Smooth coffee with nutty, roasted malt. The overall flavor is a bit creamy with some dark fruit. The finish is slightly bitter and full of roast.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with smooth carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: This is a really nice coffee beer. I wouldn't have minded if the body was a little bit thicker, but I would definitely have another.

A- Poured into an oversized snifter... starts with a very light brown head that quickly disappears. Beer is black in color

S- Coffee, nutty, burnt. Very dry aroma

T- The coffee and toasty flavors of the stout mesh perfectly. The coffee flavor isn't overwhelming but perfectly complimentary to the stout beer. A hint of sweetness becomes more present as it warms

M- A little thinner than it probably should be with light/medium carbonation

O- A bit tame compared to some of the other stouts they're putting out, but a solid beer for sure, especially for coffee lovers

Cheers

Shared by ejyoung, poured into snifter.

Dark, opaque mahogany, becoming thinner at the edges and giving up some amber highlights. A thin swarm of bubbles swirls and pops away within seconds.

The aroma’s vibrant with coffee — this stuff smells like a coffee shop. Freshly crushed medium roast beans, tangy dark chocolate, a touch of sourdough. It would be better if it wasn’t so tangy, actually.

The flavor’s just like the nose, but smoother. Medium roast coffee, cocoa nibs and the touch of sourdough are there again, but upon the swallow, toasted bread rolls in and blends with the sharp coffee, smoothing it out. Hops lend a soft, earthy bitterness.

Silky body, a touch above medium light, with gentle, tingly carbonation. Just a touch of alcohol numbs the tongue, but it’s well hidden for the most part. Very smooth, mostly sweet finish.

Planet Bean’s very coffee-forward — perhaps too much. A bit more backing flavor would be advised, but I’m not complaining too much.

Big thanks to SamuelJackson45 for sending this bottle my way!

A - pours a nice black color without much of a head

S - It smells like the grounds that were just left over in my French Press from this morning's coffee. Nice coffee aroma without much else in he mix.

T - Taste is similar to the nose. Nice earthy roasted coffee flavors are all over the palate. There is hardly room for anything else as the coffee dominates this one, however I get a nice bitterness from a baker's chocolate flavor with a bit of coffee grinds. Solid coffee profile!

M - a little thin, but goes down smoothly. Leaves dry from the burnt malts.

D - I have this with eggs and pancakes. At times this tasted exactly like coffee, which was awesome. Once I was done eating some of the bitter chocolate and coffee came out which took a bit away from the flavor experience. Really solid coffee stout, one of the better coffee stouts I have had the pleasure of trying.

Bottle courtesy of therealnomayo. I finally pulled this up from the cellar to drink tonight.

No abv or description on the label. Corked and caged bottle. The cork was a bitch to pull out, my wrist is sore after the 5 minute long fight with the damn thing.

Poured into my Cigar City snifter. Black with a rich looking head. The head was a dried cigar paper color with semi-large bubbles gurgling to the surface. As quickly as it rose, the head fell back to leave just a small ring of bubbles around the edges. Lacing was minimal but present.

Smells a little light and fruity for a coffee stout. My initial reaction is that not enough coffee was used, or that the yeast wasn't the best choice for the style. With subsequent followup, the coffee presents itself more and more, though it's still nothing like the sublime aroma you get from Founders Breakfast Stout. There are plenty of other coffee beers out there that also have a more pleasing coffee aroma. The Planet Bean version of the style is more harsh and almost dirty tasting, if that makes any sense.

The taste is full of coffee. The coffee is very bitter and ashy. Like cigarette butt ashy. An earthy profile lies beneath the thick coffee roast, and again, a slight fruity flavor is present, but not welcome. The aftertaste lingers on the bitter coffee and ash, but gradually fades into bakers chocolate.

Mouthfeel is immediately very thin bodied for a stout. Then comes the bitterness that pervades every aspect of the beer. Finally, each sip finishes very dry, coating my mouth with the physical aftermath of the ashy flavor.

Overall this is a sure-fire coffee bomb. The sad thing is, I have had many beers with more coffee flavor. Here, the coffee exhibits many of the negative aspects of extreme coffee usage, without all of the qualities that normally make a coffee stout my favorite style ever. I want to say the beans were burned or used in the boil kettle (which seems to be the worst possible time to add coffee from what I hear). Definitely a cool beer to have tried, but I honestly am floored at the high marks this beer has gotten in the past.

Is this a super rare/sought-out tick and I just didn't know it?

After having sampled a bottle of Planet Bean that was easily 6+ months old, I had a "fresh" pour of it on draft at the Spring House Taproom. In comparison to my review from the bottle, some minor things are different, noted below:

S: Fresh coffee beans, slightly roasted and not overly charred or so black tasting. It's a nice balanced coffee flavor this time, a bit more mild and inviting. I also got a bit of chocolate that I didn't get from the bottle. Certainly an improvement from an aged bottle, the coffee is definitely meant to have this certain fresh, brightness to it I'm gathering.

T: So much better, the coffee bean flavor has a slight bitterness to it but it's again very mild. The roasting is just right, not stale, overly roasted or off. It's quite rich and I get some nice caramel and chocolate malts this time too, giving this a good depth of flavor.

Everything else was essentially the same as the bottled version. It's not my favorite coffee-forward beer however, as with other coffee beers, this is most certainly better consumed fresh.

Cam. Thanks for sharing the growler of this beer.
This review is from notes from earlier tonight, August eighth, two thousand eleven, common era.

A - dark black body, red light through the edges, a minimal tan head.

S - a great coffee aroma, nice roast. Kind of one-dimensional, but it's a great coffee smell

T - sweet cherry, dark and bitter coffee, fairly dry.

M - smooth, medium-thin body, somewhat drying.

O - this is a good coffee stout. A couple of improvements, and it's excellent (less awkward sweet flavor, thicker body, etc)

Never heard of the brewery but the beer sounds great!

Pours a dark dark brown almost opaque. A nice touch of tan head. Smells heavily of coffee and roasty goodness. Thin but i suppose typical of an american stout. Smooth and rich. Lots of great coffee flavours. The aroma is phenomenal the taste and mouthfeel leave a bit to be desired but this beer is white enjoyable!

From 07/29/11 notes. Received in the Gang Bang BIF courtesy of the Chicago group; thanks guys! Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a SAVOR snifter. Very excited for this one, it's been on my Wants list since I joined BA.

a - Pour a dark brown color with a reddish tint and one finger of dark tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks pretty good.

s - Smells of coffee, roasted malts, light cream, light bready malts. As expected a ton of coffe up front, and pretty good.

t - Tastes of coffee grinds, roasted malts, vanilla, light bread and cream. Not the biggest fans of the coffe grinds, and seems a bit watered down. A step down from the nose.

m - Light to medium body and bit overcarbonated. Body is a tiny bit watery.

o - Overall a good beer, but I was a bit disappointed. The body was a bit thin and I wasn't the biggest fan of the coffe grind taste. Would give another shot but wouldn't seek it out again.

First had: on tap at Pinocchio's, Media, PA

"Planet Bean" is right...damn. Coffee, coffee, coffee. This is definitely among the coffee-est beers I've ever had...surpassed perhaps only by Triumph Brewing's "Grover's Mill Coffee & Cream Stout," I'd say. Poured a deep mocha brown with a small tan head. The smell: coffee. Roasted coffee dominates all, with some dark malts apparent. The taste...makes me wish I actually liked coffee. But yeah, more coffee, very roasty, and some dark roasted malts trying to peek through. As a stout, it was a little thin-bodied, but still very good and not lacking in flavor. Did I mention coffee? Coffee.

Generously opened by Casey at a recent shindig. Pours dark brown / black with a small tan head. Smells nothing like any coffee stout I have had before in that it smells exactly like iced coffee...and it tastes exactly like iced coffee. A really weird beer to grade in that sense. Rating it at face value, the coffee flavor is strong, but doesn't meld with any malt presence, instead masking most of the qualities that make beer beer. The mouthfeel isn't really creamy and is maybe medium or a bit thin. Goes down easy. Overall - iced coffee. If you like it, you will like this beer.

Another coffee stout. Pretty good overall but too thin in the mouth. Beer is brown to black. Tan head, some lacing, mild retention, low carbonation.

Aroma is all coffee all the time. It smells like an iced coffee drink. That is all.

Beer is mildly sweet and thin with a strong coffee bitterness at the end. The malt is completely masked by the coffee. This is a decent stout but not the best I'd had.

Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt!

The beer is nearly black, with a thick, tan head that leaves copious lacing all over the glass. The aroma is dominated with coffee, as if I were in a coffee shop. The beer is really one dimensional, but isn't that the intent here? Just a huge coffee presence throughout the aroma and taste. The body is a bit thin, with a healthy bitterness present in the finish. This beer is designed for coffee lovers. I'd definitely have this again.

A firkin on vanilla beans poured at Al's

A - Pitch black body with a small, bubbly head...it was light brown in color and showed not much retention except for the thinnest ring...some light lacing

S - I know it was 11:00 when I had this but it smells like it's 6:30 am...nothing but fresh ground coffee in the aroma...some light sweeter notes of caramel and vanilla

T - The flavors were actually a little light right up front but once the beer hits the middle of the palate...WHAM!...there's a big blast of coffee...strong, fresh brewed coffee...the vanilla adds some sweetness but it's not as overpowering as I was expecting...lingering caramel and chocolate as well...the finish has the expected coffee bean bitterness

M - Medium bodied...it must have been towards the end because it wasn't as full as it should have been...actually a bit thin at times...lingering coffee bitterness

O - Not only did I finally get to try this, I got to try it from a firkin...and it was firkin good...now that I know where the new Spring House is I might have to make it down there when this is on...a delicious coffee stout
