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.

A: Black color with a 1 finger tan head. The head has really uniform bubbles, which I always like. The head reduces but does not disappear. It stays as a thin white layer over the brew.

S: It smells like coffee. A robust coffee very powerful and pronounced.

T: Slightly bitter coffee. It is not a subtle hint of coffee - it is full on coffee flavor.

M: Nice balance of carbonation - smooth on the palate.

O: Too much of a good thing? This is like coffee with some stout thrown in. I am not a coffee drinker - but I like the smell of it. This would be a great breakfast stout. It is not one that I could drink more than one at a sitting.

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

12oz bottle served at Cleveland-Heath in Edwardsville, IL. Poured into a snifter glass today, 4/4/2014.

App- dark brown body, one finger tan head, good retention and no lacing.

Smell- good roast espresso notes, milk chocolate. Not complex or anything but the balance here is very good

Flavour- milk chocolate, creamer with espresso. It's sort of what I'd expect a cafe au lait that tasted like noble, earthy hops on the backend. It works just well enough.

Mouthfeel- medium bodied, good carbonation, easy to drink. Not too bitter on the backend.

Overall- a fine local coffee stout that is balanced quite well. No offensive flavours. Works for me.
