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.

Bottle courtesy if DonFrap, thanks again!

Pours a dark brown color with a very nice tan head. Looks great!

Smells like a nice cup of coffee and not much else, maybe some cream and sugar.

Taste is very coffee forward. Some notes of roasted malts, brown sugars, and cream. But this is mostly about the coffee. Finish is crisp, and slightly bitter.

Mouthfeel is a touch thin, needs a bit more body.

Overall, a pretty nice beer. But this is a bit of a one trick pony, lots of coffee flavors that are nice, but it needs some more stout flavors to balance this out. Still enjoyable though.
