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 black. No light shines through. Small brown head that dissapates rather quickly. Moderate lacing. Smells of a rich dark coffee, and maybe some roasted malts in there. Taste is where this beer excels. Deep roasted malt flavor. Dark rich coffee. And a bit of a toast taste give this an exceptional flavor. Feels thick rich and crisp in the mouth. I could drink these all day. Of the beers I received in the trade from Dertbert this is the biggest suprise and my favorite so far. I love stouts and this is an excellent one.

I poured this Schlafly's Coffee Stout from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. The first thing you notice is great carbonation that explodes into a creamy white head. Decent head retention. The color of the Stout is a shade less then pitch black. This Coffee Stout has an Oatmeal Stout as a base and it is brewed with locally roasted Kaldi's Coffee. The aroma is wonderful. If you are a coffee lover, this is the perfect fusion of beer and coffee. As you drink the foam clings to the glass. This beer tastes like it smells, balanced, with the taste of coffee and slight hints of chocolate. Best Coffee based beer I have had- I think this is The Saint Louis Brewery's greatest victory. The only problem is that this is a seasonal beer. I could drink this year around. Now if I can only get my employer to put this on tap next to the coffee pot! Prost!

To start off, I'm not a coffee drinker, so if I was a coffee drinker, I would imagine this beer would have scored even better.

Pours a thick creamy head. Dark brown in color, looks like a man's beer.

Smells like it should...the coffee smell is robust, with a bit of malt in the background.

As you would expect, the mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. The taste of the coffee isn't overwhelming like in the nose.

This beer provides a very attractive lacing. The finish is as smooth as they come. The bitter hops and bitter coffee seem to act to offset one another, for a creamy, almost sweet finish.

Schlafly is becoming my favorite brewer. This is my 5th or 6th variety, and I'm still haven't had one that wasn't exceptional.

Oh hell yeah, that is what I needed tonight, a rich, decadent coffee beer. My favorite of beer styles, though it is not really a style. This twelve ounce beauty was served lightly chilled and poured into my pint glass. Consumed on 12/11/2008.

The pour was really wonderful. Rich and completely black with no light coming through here at all. Huge tan head settled down just a tocuh leaving a ton of side glass lace alll over the place.

The smell, rich coffee aroma with a light hint of roasted malts and a touch of grain. As it warmed some light hints of molasses started to come through as well. The taste though, is why I love coffee and beer. Rich. Bitter. Dry. Totally and completely emerged in a huge coffee flavor from the very first sip. This had a really nice mellow brew flavor to it, not really harshm with a fine prickly carbonation that was smooth and subtle. Really very well done. Nice dry, slightly biter finish sealed the deal for me as this one was one of the most drinkable beers I have had in a very long time.

Overall I was floored by how good this one was. One of the best coffee beers i have had and really just a shining moment of the night for me. This was damn good.
