"A brew uniquely different from most coffee stouts, we cram Higher Grounds roasted fair trade espresso beans into every facet of the brewing process. Prominent aromatics of malt, espresso, and cocoa are abundant and create a flavor robust with big malt characters fused with cream and coffee. The perfect morning night capper."

12oz bottle poured into a Le Coq Imperial Extra Double Stout tulip glass.


The beer pours a deep jet black color, thick and inky, with a finger or so of caramel head, taut and firm that has moderate retention and yields a few spots of soapy lace. The aroma is big on the coffee, roasty, rich and chocolatey, creamy and milky from the lactose, a bit of char and burned malt lingers. The flavors echo the nose, espresso roast, dark rich grain, smooth bittersweet chocolate, lactose sugar but again, there is a long lingering burnt sensation, very roasty and charred. The mouthfeel is nice, coating, creamy, low carbonation that feels good, a bit of richness though the finish is a touch thinner.


Verdict: A nice coffee stout from Short's, perhaps a bit too charred, burnt and roasted for my palate, but certainly enjoyable. A little smoothness and a touch of body at the finish would do this beer wonders.
