Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Todd on 12-03-2013

This beer is a unique collaboration between two iconic Rhode Island companies. A custom blend of Narragansett’s bittersweet milk Stout with dark, delicious Autocrat Coffee makes for a delightful beer that is more Rhode Island than Roger Williams himself. Since the 1890’s, Narragansett Beer and Autocrat Coffee have been home-grown Rhode Island favorites.

This stout has everything it should. Nice roastiness along with a good bit of Coffee flavor. The milk stout feel was a bit low possibly being a little overpowered by the coffee. Poured black with a nice head. This is a very enjoyable lower alcohol stout that borders on great.

Got in a BIF from ZebraCakez. 12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 9/25/2014. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, cream, light char, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and coffee notes; with great strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, cream, light char, and roasted earthiness. Slight roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, cream, light char, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good complexity and solid robustness of dark/roasted malt and coffee flavors; with a good roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. There is a fair amount of dryness on the finish as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly creamy, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice coffee milk stout. All around good complexity and solid robustness of dark/roasted malt and coffee flavors; and very smooth to drink. This felt more like a dry stout, but was still nicely enjoyable.

16 oz can; dark brown pour with tan head

Aroma of roasted malt, light coffee, sweet chocolate

Tastes of light stale coffee, chocolate, slight lactose sweetness but finishes dry and watery.

Mouthfeel is light with creamy carbonation.

This is an average beer that drinks more like a session brown ale than a stout. I like that it is lower ABV and is easy drinking. Overall it is enjoyable but not something I will seek out again. I tend not to love coffee in beer unless it is a big rich stout.

I really enjoyed this relatively low abv stout/porter. It compares well with my favorite stout - SN Stout. You get a nice head on the pour with decent lacing as the beer is consumed. Some have mentioned the level of carbonation and it is a bit higher than some other stouts I've tried. It does contribute to a lighter mouthfeel. I think I'll be buying this one again.

A bit more carbonation and thickness than a typical stout. Almost akin to a porter. The appearance of cola, and a coffe-ish chocolately taste breathes a roasted flavor of coffeebeans. Ive found its better to let it age in the can for a couple months. It lets the carbonation and particles settle more. Delicious beer though. Comes with a buzz.

Narragansett Autocrat Coffee Milk Stout
16 oz. can, coded "3014 21:45 3"
$1.99 @ Total Wine & More #901, Tampa, FL

I have to admit that I was skeptical about this beer given the Narragansett name, but it totally delivers. It's rich with an authentic coffee flavor, as well as chocolate and caramel; and perfectly balanced without any flavors covering over others, or eventually building to take the lead. A moderate bitterness balances it, and it teeters between sweet and dry, but always with a pleasant roasted edge. Some might argue that there's not enough body or malt to it, but I feel that if it's got the flavor that you're looking for that's enough; it's a trade-off, more body and malt might be more satisfying, but less leaves it more drinkable. It finishes dry, and fairly short, with some coffee and dark chocolate lingering along with some very subtle hops. It's not complex, but it's rich.
