Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: DaveHack on 10-27-2013

An oatmeal & coffee brunch stout (because we don't wake up in time for breakfast) is a stout with a Brazilian roast coffee added. North Ramp Coffee Stout is loaded with flaked oats and locally roasted and brewed Benchwarmers Coffee. Benchwarmers Coffee is roasted and brewed in Reading, PA and takes the name North Ramp from our homebrewing and flying friends at the North Ramp FBO at the nearby Reading Airport.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A: black opaque, maybe a hint of red; surface film; quickly dissipating head; no lacing
S: genuine coffee, with a hint of malt
T: toasty, leaning more toward espresso than the nose would indicate, surprisingly not overly bitter given that, a tinge of bile
M: medium bodied but toasty/dry without being truly dry
O: Quite a solid stout: dry, rich coffee flavor, low abv lends toward sessionable

Smooth texture, mild chocolate and nutty flavor. Coffee flavor present and pleasant. Good but feels like it's missing something in the overall flavor palette.

(Guest reviewer - my younger brother Nick, who loves coffee and only recently has come into the fold of craft beer, much due to my influence)

A: The beer is clear but very dark brownish amber in color. It poured with a quarter finger high beige head.
S: Moderate aromas of cold brewed coffee and coffee beans are present in the nose. the smell becomes stronger as the beer warms up.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of coffee beans along with a light amount of bitterness and slight amounts of roast, both of which linger through the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium- bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The lighter body nature of this beer makes it extremely easy to drink, but it is packed with lots of aromas and flavors of coffee.

Paid 3.50 for the bottle kind of pissed its not higher in ABV but whatever into a mason jar glass.
A - Pour is pretty dark and thick for 5%. Very nice 1/4 inch of mocha head that sticks around. Nice.
S - Mild coffee grinds and some roasted malts maybe some chocolate. It's really kind of mild.
T - Well well this does have a distinct acidity one would expect from hard roast but I am not getting much else just bittering hops and acidic grounds. Wish it was sweeter.
M - Pretty on par for 5% not very watery light to medium in body.

Overall usually coffee stouts are much more balanced with the hops and sweeter in the taste. Not to say this was horrible but I would have preferred another bottle of Schnickelfritz truthfully. Pretty bad coffee stout.
