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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a SA sensory glass this brew appears a dark brown color. When held to the light, this offering appears more like a brown ale than a stout. 2 fingers of tanned frothy head appear and retain well leaving a webbing of lace on the glassware.

The aroma of this brew has a strong scent of coffee that is somewhat tangy suggesting some citrus aspect to the coffee beans or maybe an accent to the hops. A roasted character of slightly musty grain fills the back of the nose. As it warms, some chocolate notes come out.

The taste includes roasted grain upfront with a slightly dry chocolate taste and a solid backing of coffee. There is a light musty aspect about the grain and the coffee flavor as a bit of citrus component possibly exaggerated by the hops. It leaves an aftertaste that is a mixture of roasted grain and coffee, not bad.

The alcohol is slightly noticeable in this brew. It is medium bodied with a modest level of carbonation. Not a bad offering at all.
