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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Bottled 26 November 2012. Tasted 2 May 2013, reviewed from notes.

Pours dark brown, effectively black, with color only at the edges. One finger of medium-light tan head. Okay retention and lacing.

Smell is soft, almost watered-down, coffee. It has a milky artificial-feeling sweetness, much like some of the big sweet Southern Tier stouts. Like over-sugared weak coffee, though pretty good for that realm, and with more positive than negative.

Taste is a blend of gentle stout and soft coffee flavors. Both sides are restrained, a little more than I'd like them to be, but they add up to a nice whole.

Mouthfeel is light, with a slickness like a milk stout. Medium-low carbonation that fades out pretty early; I want it to be more persistent. Fades out into that slickness.

Finding this, well, not exactly mediocre, but uninspiring. Has a funny sweetness that reminds me a lot of beers like Southern Tier Mokah and Creme Brulee. Also has some distinct milk stout characteristics, which I wasn't expecting.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A- pours opaque black with a small fizzy light-tan head that reduces quickly leaving just a ring, short lasting lace

S- nice chocolaty roasted notes with some sweet oats, dark-yet-not overly bitter coffee with a touch of vanilla, very nice

T- great balance between the bitterness of the coffee and the chocolaty roasted notes. I think that by using the coffe extract, it tames the bitterness a bit. The sweet chocolate is complimented nicely by a silky oat character that leads to a dry-yet-slightly bitter finish with a faint coffee linger

M- medium body and carbonation with a bubbly mouthfeel that leads to a creamy finish, dont necessarily get the silkiness associated with an oatmeal stout

O- nice coffee flavors in this one, reminds me of a poor mans FBS, would pair nicely with desserts or chocolate.
