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.

Thanks to hopdog for sharing this growler...
Appears a near black with brown edges and a tan head that fades into a mild cap and a hearty collar. Streaky rings and spots of lacing are left all around the glass.
Smell is of mocha, cream, java grounds, and roasted nuts.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with some vanilla cream and a hint of caramel coming through in the flavors.
Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied, with sweet cream and bitter coffee grounds battling it out along the palate.
I'm usually skeptical when it comes to these coffee beers but I enjoyed this one.

Appearance - It is a blackish brown color, with a tan colored head.

Smell - a nice roasted coffee smell, reminds me a bit of a mocha cappuccino.

Taste - like the smell, it leaves a nice coffee aftertaste as well.

Mouthfeel - silky smooth beer, with a decent body.

Overall - A pretty good coffee stout.
