One of the best coffee stouts available. Thick and rich. Black in color, light brown head. We tried it at the Rockford, IL Farmers Market and immediately bought growlers. Does not disappoint if you like a rich coffee flavor with a hint of smokiness. Smooth. Wish it was available where we live, but they sell koozies for the growlers and it traveled well.

22oz Bottle
Binny's - Bolingbrook

A liquid, black as night, glugs from glass to snifter. It swallows the surrounding light. A swirl of foam reluctantly emerges on the pour so I give a hard pour, producing a finger of milk chocolate foam. The head eventually falls to random islands and a fat ring that leaves impressive lacing everywhere.

Would you like some beer with your coffee? In this case, it doesn't really matter. Big heavily roasted coffee screams with freshness. The brown sugar is present with a layer of sweet that's coffee w/ sugar-esque but unique with the use of brown sugar. Molasses is noticeable but not as strong as I expected from the amount used, which is good with me. Cocoa powder, carob, and dark berries are what the actual stout brings to the table and it's nice.

Again, we have huge coffee but it's balanced by huge, delicious stout-y-ness. Big old dark roast coffee with a dash of cream and a sprinkling of sugar, again brown with added depth. The malt brings roast as well and the molasses brings a touch of sweetness but also complexity. Cocoa is strong in this one, carob as too and the dark berries tend to linger on the swallow. I'm a fan of this guy.

The body weighs in squarely between moderate and full. There's a slight residual sweetness that coats the mouth after each drink which is surprising because there's also a solid roasty bitterness that lingers around. I don't often find those two things together. If a just a touch of that stickiness disappeared it would be spot on.

This is a toe tapping, pacing around the room coffee stout. The label mentions "Strong coffee Flavor" and they ain't lying. While it seemed at first the coffee was all this beer was it actually opened up nicely with a damn good base beer. Highly recommended.

A: appears dark brown to black, only when you tilt the glass do you see at the top the mocha-brown coloring.

S: the smell is a nice light iced coffee , with maybe a hint of like, cherry,or date sweetness.

T: delicious, tasting coffee, iced coffee, smooth and light,,you could drink quite a few and not feel ' bloated by beer '.

M: mouthfeel is not thick and chewy like your big stouts, but flavorful, smooth. And lighter.

O: overall I have to go up a bit just for the experience, nose, taste, they are satisfying, very good, Pig Minds, very good.

Reviewed on Jan 18, 2014 at the brewpub on a snowy day. ( like that matters ).
