I'd like to add Wolaver's Alta Gracia Coffee Porter. Big coffee taste on that one.
Going to St. Louis in two weeks. Thanks for the tip!
Bourbon County Coffee
Big Bad Baptist
They are the beers that have highlighted the coffee the most to my palate.
Left Hand's Java Lava is awesome
Williamsburg Alewerks Cafe Royale!
While it is a seasonal, I picked up four of the 2012 batch right before christmas and the 2013 batch just dropped this week. So you can usually find it year round. Fresh it's pretty good, but with a year on it this beer really shines.
I had the same issue with it fresh. Try one from last year, it's amazing.
You'll need to trade for it, or order it online, but Oakshire Overcast espresso stout is one of the most delicious of the coffee forward beers I love. Luckily for me a local brewery makes a stupendous one as well, Rushing Duck Planet Bean.
Terrapin wake n bake.
no need to go beyond Founders Breakfast Stout, remarkable taste and mouth feel.
It was better before it was cool. *adjusts scarf and speeds away on fixie*
Thanks.. I will keep an eye out for it!
Redband Coffee Stout by Great River Brewery. This tastes like pure coffee with a little beer added. Definitely interesting and far more coffee taste than any other been I've ever had.
I would have agreed until I tried Peche Mortel and Speedway Stout, granted FBS is better than both of those brews.
Then I tried Epic Big Bad Baptist... WOW!!... FBS is almost a memory. Damn, I better go buy a 4 pack!
For me locally, there was also Elevator Bourbon Barrel Espresso Imperial Stout... Amazing stuff.
Alesmith Speedway Stout - really a coffee experience IMO.
KBS - the BA cuts it a little, but it's still a tremendous brew.
BEER* not been. Idiot.
southern tier mokah
The best coffee beer I've ever had...
Cheers from Switzerland!
BBC Coffeehouse is unreal on draft and awesome in a bottle.
Wollavers/OtterCree Alta Gracia is really good.
Harpoons new hundred barrel series Trifuno is awesome too.
This year's Hill Farmstead Earl is so much more coffee forward than the last iteration it's not even funny. Not just coffee but seriously high quality beans here.
Agreed on the beer. As far as its availability, it appears frequently on Letspour.com, and I'm pretty sure some other online sites have it as well (possibly MadeInOregon.com, for one).
Most of the best/most obvious examples have already been named. For a beer that doesn't explicitly include coffee but I get a lot of dark roast coffee flavor from: Founder's Imperial Stout.
I'll second Real Ale Shade Tree Coffee Porter and Kona Pipeline. Both readily available (in DFW at least) and fairly inexpensive.
Peche Mortal, just finished my one and only, and it was tremendous. Kills FBS, better than W&B too.
De Molen Mout & Mocca
Old Rasputin....no coffee in it, but it certainly has some similarities.
Chicory Stout and Victory at Sea
Founders Breakfast Stout
Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout
Ballast Point Victory At Sea
Samuel Adams Black and Brew
Goose Island BCBCS
Jester King Beer Geek Rodeo
Jester King Weasel Rodeo
Flying Dog Kujo Imperial Coffee Stout might be my favorite coffee stout. It has such a nice/pleasant coffee taste and it doesn't even taste like it has 8.9% ABV. Such a smooth and creamy tasting beer.
I want that one!
Big Bad Baptist
I'm getting some in; let me know if you want to come to Chapel Hill and crack one! I can't guarantee how long they will or will not last though haha.
Quite often i get a coffee/cocoa-ish taste outta 60 Minute IPA. In a good way.
wake n bake is coffee city
Hoping to pick up a couple bottles of the Hardywood Park Sidamo Coffee Stout this week. Will report back once I try one on for size. Right now, Cafe Royale from Williamsburg Alewerks is my leader.
Wolavers Alta Gracia Coffee Porter
forgot to add. but the Kona Pipeline Porter, while a bit thin, has very noticeable coffee flavor.
The mother of all coffee foreward beers for me has been Peche Mortel. A dam near perfect coffee aroma. The coffee flavor was dam near perfect also. I am suprised noone has mentioned this beer. If you love coffee you will love this beer.
It's Schlafly Coffee Stout.
Ditto on the Surly Coffee Bender. It's my wife's favorite beer at the moment.
And don't forget Alewerks Coffeehouse Stout!
