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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. No readable freshness date.

A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/2 inch light brown head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves small clots behind.

S- Milk chocolate, mild roasted coffee and a bit a of a glassy aroma. Grainy, nutty, somewhat stale.

T- More milk chocolate with some mild coffee and a bit of nuttiness. Very tame flavor that goes down easily. Roasty bitterness in the aftertaste. Tinge of vanilla sweetness. After a while, all the flavors become quite muted as the palate acclimates. Also, once it warms, the staleness detected in the aroma starts coming through more strongly and you can start to see that either the coffee they used in this was low-quality, the base beer wasn't done well or both.

M- Pretty thin and lifeless with medium carbonation but still maintains a fullish body.

O- For the money, it's decent. But, once it warms, this beer becomes near undrinkable. My advice is to drink this beer cold and, considering it's Narragansett, it isn't all that surprising. Could be worse, but could also be a whole lot better.

Perfect combination of coffee and stout. When your done it leaves you wanting a cup of coffee and a pint of beer. Narry's got a winner with this.

Pours brown, settles in the glass super dark brown, leaves a small tan head with lots of lacing on the glass.

Smells absolutely amazing, sweet coffee notes, molasses, oat.

Taste does not quite match up to the smell but it's not bad by any means, coffee flavor dominates the profile, maybe touch too dark roasted. For that, there's no bitterness, takes on a sweet tone for the middle, finish is dry with a nice coffee aftertaste.

Medium to full bodied, smooth and creamy though the carbonation gets in the way slightly, but not too bad. Alcohol is hidden well.

An excellent beer for the price.

I searched for a while to find this seasonal milk stout. Wasn't able to score any while in RI during X-Mas break. Finally found a sixer local to me in NY by chance.

Served from the can into a goblet at 36F.

Nice coloring and lacing. Immense thick creamy tan colored head.
Smell is kind of pungent, which is normal for a coffee milk stout.

This beer is thick. If I were to guess it's abv just looking at the appearance and thickness, i would say it's closer to 9 or 10 % abv. Fortunately it's a session beer and only 5.30%.

Taste wise it was more or less what one would except from Narragansett. Kind of like roasted syrupy half a day old coffee. The coffee flavor is sort of overpowering and not that well balanced with the malts and hops.

You can sort of taste the cheaper malt profile behind the strong coffee flavorings. Not many hops can be tasted through the powerful coffee syrup extract.

Overall not bad, but I would not buy it again. Definitely cool marketing, but remember, it's trying to mask the quality of Narragansett beer. Rhode Island's equivalent of Pabst Blue Ribbon. Great if your an ironic hipster that likes to spark conversation about your bargain buy beer, but not that great if your a fanatic of coffee milk stouts.

Not even in the same league as Carton Regular Coffee or Keegan Mothers Milk.
More in line with Stone Coffee Milk Stout.

Light bodied is my only complaint. But $10 for a 6 pack of tall boys, it's a winner

Rich stout with a bold coffee presence. This beer has coffee in abundance. Finish is bitter. Good coffee kick.
