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.

BrewCzar threw me this as an extra. Thanks!!

Pours a dark color with some transparent highlights when held up to light. Head leaves a full crown with decent lacing.

Scent is strongly of coffee beans. A hint of chocolate in the background. Smells good but a bit one dimensional.

Tastes of a coffee background, but not exactly like coffee. The stout makes itself known and makes for a pretty good mix. The relatively thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation work well here.

Overall, a good coffee stout, but I've got no reason to switch from Alesmith's Speedway.

Pours a brownish body w/ quick dying, large-sized head on top of a beer w/ an aroma of coffee, roasted, burnt chocolaty malts as well as dry bready/oakiness. This is a great example of a stout pulling off a tricky balancing act as at first I found this beer real smooth, almost creamy, w/ sweetness emanating from chococlate, caramel and possible touches of vanilla, toffee and oats. Then an afterfinish w/ a burst of tasty, roasted coffee malt that gives it a strong, dry, hearty finish. Overall, an easy to drink and low-priced stout that is a great beer.

From 01/27/12 notes. had on tap at Bier Baron in DC. Poured into a pint glass.

a - Pours a slightly murky, amber-brown color with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of straight up coffee grinds, espresso, roasted malts, and toasted malts.

t - Tastes of coffee grinds, roasted malts, espresso, toasted malts, light chocolate, and light cream. Pretty nice.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink stout.

o - Overall a very nice coffee stout. One of those stouts that smells and tastes like coffee grounds, it's very strong. Would have it again.

Poured from a 12oz bottle with a label describing this as an oatmeal stout flavored with Kaldi's coffee. The beer is dark brown, a little transclucent at the edges. Coffee is the dominant smell, some malt too. The taste is nice, the coffee doesn't seem overbearing or anything, but I'd prefer more a thicker body and maybe more sweetness. Very tasty but more body would be nice for a fit with the flavor.
