Style | ABV
American Stout |  5.10% ABV

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes/Commercial Description:
A stout ale crafted with dark malts and a heavy dose of cold pressed coffee from local roaster Beanetics of Annandale, Virginia to lend a pleasant and smooth roasty finish. This full bodied stout will have a malty and smooth body as a result of the addition of flaked oats. Lightly hopped to allow the bold flavors coffee lovers will certainly enjoy.

4.05/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: The growler opened with a huge POP that I was not expecting. The beer pours out a relatively clear brown color, but rests in my glass deep and dark. The head only builds up slightly, but is brown in color and doesn't lace all that much. 3

S: The aroma is of coffee, wait I think I'm getting some coffee, and oh wait, more coffee. Fresh roasted, the coffee doesn't smell unlike what I drink each morning. There are some roasted malts working their way in as well, with perhaps some fresh hoppiness. I love the smell of coffee, so I love the smell of Leaded. 4

T: It really tastes like a cup of coffee. I've had my share of coffee stouts in the past, but none were as focused on it as this. You can taste everything from toasted coffee beans, to the grinds lingering on the back of the palate. The roasted malts hang out at the very end, but I don't note any chocolate or hops at all. 4

MF: Medium body with the perfect amount of carbonation I was hoping for. It's so drinkable I'm worried about how much caffeine I'm putting into my system so late in the day. 4

Value: I picked this up on half off growler night...so all 64oz were less than $10. That honestly is a deal I don't plan on ever passing up again. 5

O: Homerun in my mind. I have been waiting for such a coffee forward stout, and now I have it. Mad Fox puts out a ton of great beers, I'm really lucky to live so close to it. 4.5

3.35/5  rDev -16.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass at the brewpub in Falls Church, VA.

Color is nearly opaque black, with little head

Taste is good, well balanced, coffee is pronounced

Mouthfeel is thin for a stout, carbonation low

Overall not bad, but lacking what I expect from the style.

Serving type: on-tap
