Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Coffee Stout is a classic combination of a traditional stout and premium French roast coffee from St. Louis roaster, Kaldi’s Coffee. Roasted barley and coffee dominate the aroma, with the sweetness from the stout balancing the acidity of the coffee. We use a unique cold toddy extraction process to brew a less acidic coffee for the beer.

In the 1990’s, Kaldi’s staff started visiting the Schlafly Tap Room, asking for a pint of stout and a shot of espresso. Both Schlafly and Kaldi’s realized this was a match made in beer heaven, and soon started working together to find the perfect coffee blend to mix with our Oatmeal Stout. This collaboration continues today, with regular tastings to perfect the Coffee Stout.

Picked this up in Totowa earlier this week. I had no idea that this was a Oatmeal Stout until I looked up this beer on here, since it wasn't as full as others that I've had in the past. As others have commented on here, this was quite thin and more like carbonated coffee rather than actual beer. On its own, it was fine but I expect an Oatmeal Stout to have the taste and body of actual oats and I think that this beer spread itself thin just a bit here.

The pour was as to be expected - cola brown with just a hint of garnet around the edges, with a fluffy tan head that quickly settled and a fair amount of lacing on the side of my pint glass that I drank down the side of. Lots of coffee and espresso in the nose but not a lot of oats. The look and mouthfeel of this beer was of the aforementioned cola without the sugary stickiness as the burnt notes of the coffee ended up taking over to a large degree here. If Starbucks brewed a beer, this would be it (although this would be a better buy for the buck!) and the hop bitterness really couldn't be found here. There was a faint bitter chocolate undertone to this as well with just a bit of vanilla extract and molasses to give this some bite. A fair presence of carbonation was here as well but not enough to scrub my palate clean after each sip.

At the alcohol was light here, as there was hardly any booze to be detected as I did "shots" of this coffee, er...beer. While I like something that pushes the edge a bit, something was missing here. Maybe it was the oats, some more powder to the chocolate, or some more bubbles to give this some life. Espresso tends to be watery, flat, and bitter and that's what this was too. If that's your thing, drink away! It will save you a trip to the place with the long lines, green aprons, and hum of the coffee machines.
