Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: goochpunch on 03-31-2007

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 O'hori's Coffee House. Its heavenly flavor and aroma can't be beat or imitated.

Pours ebony with 3 fingers of mocha colored head. Good head retention & lacing

S: Coffee & faint cocoa, roasty grain

T: Much coffee & roasted grain up front, slight mocha sweetness as well. Charred grain & roasty bitterness as this warms, along with some cocoa bittereness. Finishes roasty, slight latte sweetness & a bit of booze bite

Medium bodied, firm carbonation, a bit of warming booze

I really like this take on a coffee stout that has some latte sweetness. Well done Santa Fe!
