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.

12oz Bottle received in trade with cfrancis

Appearance - Dark brown colour with a small size frothy beige head. I can't make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, chocolate, grains, coffee

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and light coffee. There is also some grains and a bit of a an oatmeal type flavour.

Overall - A good beer, not as much coffee and I was expecting, tastes just like a regular stout. Good nonetheless.

Pours a dark brown with thin tan head. Nose is straight coffee. Deep roasted coffee ground with undertow of chocolate and roast. Taste is much a like a chilled black coffee. Nice robust coffee notes along with notes of oats, charred grain, and cocoa. Mouthfeel is on the thinner side with mild carbonation. Overall, very nice coffee character in this beer.

brown in a pint class, lots of tan head. aroma of fresh coffee beans. flavor is okay, lots of coffee there, more bitterness though. a little bit roasty, some candy-like or syrupy sweetness on the back end. overall good but not my favorite coffee stout

Glass Used: Tumbler

Appearance: A deep dark brown with a finger thick tan head. Lacing is minimal; a thin film of foam seals the surface.

Smell: A dark roast black coffee aroma fills the nostrils. I get some roasted malt characteristics as well. A lot of roast going on here.

Taste: Tastes like malted ice coffee. Not too heavy but the coffee is the star here. If you like the flavor of iced black coffee, with a hint of sweetness, then this beer is for you. The finish leaves a slight bitterness associated with a stout.

Mouthfeel: Creamy up until mid palate where it gets a bit thin in the finish. It's rather pleasant. Medium carbonation.

Overall: This is a great black coffee stout. I get sweetened iced black coffee during the Summer so this is right up my alley. Recommended if you like those flavors.

Really liked this stout from Schlafly. Had this poured out of the bottle into a stout glass. Awesome coffee aroma and flavor. Burnt and robust. Nice dark brown color with a tape fluffy head. Great balance, try it with dessert or a smoky pork. Smooth down the gullet. So good.
