Planet Bean Coffee Stout is smooth, dark, full-bodied, and satisfyingly rich. Coffee beans expertly roasted at Cumberland County Coffee Company give this stout its powerful aroma and pronounced fresh-brewed coffee flavor. Your only problem with this tempting brew will be resisting the urge to pour it in your coffee mug before work!

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.

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.
