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.

pours a deep deep brown with a creamy tan head. smells like a good coffee with a hit of malt. the taste is really good its exactly what i would want my perfect cup of coffee to taste like if i poured in a good stout. really like the mouth feel and its amazingly drinkable i could drink this instead of my few cups of joe in the am but i dont think work would like that too much... i recomend this to everyone....very good job schlafly

Almost pitch black with a nice beige/light brown head that lasts. Prominent intense roasted coffee bean aroma and flavor ... wow coffee, coffee, coffee like a cup was dumped in my stout. Light-medium bodied with a dry roasty bitter coffee finish.

Beer is for breakfast now !! Excellent beer and I don't really like coffee...

This beer pours dark brown with a creamy head. The head fades somewhat quickly leaving few laces. As soon as the beer is poured, you are assulted by a very strong coffee aroma. Hidden is a malty aroma, but the coffee aroma is dominant. It tastes very coffee like. I guess that is because it is a coffee stout. It tastes just like cold coffee with alcohol. It is very impressive. Other coffee stouts only have a mild coffee flavor, but this one has very strong flavors. It leaves a coffee taste in the mouth. It is rather pleasent. It is carbonated just right. This beer would be a great session beer. It is very tasty and it doesnt have too much alcohol. If I could get this beer where I live, I would drink it all the time. The rating it has doesnt give it justice.

A - Dark brown with no head.

S - Simply put smells like coffee...as it should!

T - This is by far the best "coffee stout" that I have tasted. Many stouts and porters have "hints" of coffee among other flavors. To me it tasted like I was drinking a delicious iced coffee...if you like coffee you will love this beer. However, this is only for coffee lovers, if you are only an occasional coffee drinker this probably won't be the stout for you.

M - Smooth with minimal carbonation. Certainly not a chore to drink.

O - I think I covered it in "taste" but I had this on tap a week ago and craved it all week. I manged to find the last 6-pack in one of my local spots and while the bottle isn't quite the experience the tap was, I would still recommend this beer to all lovers of stouts and coffee.

This is an outstanding brew!!! Got it as part of a trade from wcudwight who got it from dertbert. Thanks to these guys.

Wow!! I don't know where to begin with this beer. Poured out the color of a very dark porter. Not totally black but almost. A thin head with little lacing. The smell is of roasted oatmeal and coffee. The taste is incredible. You first notice the oatmeal with a coffee taste left for the finish. The mouthfeel is very smooth. Nothing detracts from this brew. The only thing keeping me from driving to St. Louis to get a case is I am kinda tired. But I am thinking of calling in sick in the morning. So you could say I think this is a worthwhile beer. I will cross paths with this brew again.
