Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

A hearty sip of the Santa Fe Stout delights one’s taste buds first with a generous Irish serving of roast malt that rolls off the tongue with a creamy bitterness reminiscent of the finest coffee. Supported by the strong, complex, yet light body only possible with a good Irish yeast strain, this coffee-like creaminess eventually yields to the warmth of a subtle variety of hops, and their mild, full flavor. A favorite with regular customers, this rare brew can occasionally be found on draft at restaurants in Santa Fe, but is more likely on tap at the Brewery's tasting room. Despite its intimidating dark color, this brew has an uncanny ability to convert those who claim not to like beer. The balance of flavors and complexity of aroma are recognized and appreciated by all who taste this fine brew.

Since I probably won't be back in Santa Fe any time soon, I had to decide between the stout or a belgian style ale. I went with the stout for my second brew. Was listed as very hoppy.

A - Nice ruby black with a nice tan head that quickly dissipates.

S - light roasted coffee nose balanced with a rich malty smell. Not much in the way of hops. A nice traditional irish dry stout.

T - mild malt, tasty roasted coffee and a hint of cocao.

M - medium to light bodied brew. Very pleasant from the first taste to last sip.

D - Went very well with the style of food offered!

This stout is a dark, opaque black with big dense, tan head.

Lots of coffee and licorice in the aroma. Some hints of chocolate and vanilla are there too.

Lots of chocolate, expresso, and roasted malts in the flavor. Starts a bit sweet and the finishes dry with a nice hop bite.

Nice full bodied stout, just a little sweet.
