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.

Undated can, poured into a tulip glass. Billowing head of tan foam at first, it dwindles to a skim after a few minutes. Spindly halo of lacing all around the glass. Black with brownish edges.

Substantial coffee aroma at first, it tends to ebb away over time though. Rich dark roast.

Taste is bold with bitter dark coffee flavors, fairly complex and roasty coffee notes linger into the aftertaste. Body is fairly light for an "imperial stout", this seems more like a standard issue coffee stout, though a very tasty one. Smooth creamy feel. Overall this was nice and i'd recommend picking it up if you like a bold coffee stout.
