If you ever get to MI, try some Short's Cup a Joe. Hands down my favorite coffee beer.
Surly coffee bender
I'm going to have to go with Big Bad Baptist.
There are so many great ones out there, but I'll give the edge to 2012 BCBCS.
Box Set Track #10 - Bat Out Of Hell
Peche Mortel. I have a Twilight Of The Idols sitting on my shelf, new to me.
Haven't tried Stone's Dayman Coffee IPA, but I'm sure excited to give it a try!
Had my first Cup a Joe from Short's Brewing (thanks kdmcguire10!!), by far my favorite to date!
I'll take a departure from some of the admittedly great coffee beers already mentioned to say that lately I've been really enjoying Highland's Thunderstruck Coffee Porter.
Im gonna go with Dark Horse Perkulator Coffee Dopplebock....CHEERS
I really do love bbc's coffeehouse porter, it's a few notches above drayman's if you ask me. Also a big fan of high and mighty's two headed beast stout. Looking forward to six point three beans!!!
If you're going for pure coffee taste, I'd say Red Eye Coffee Porter by Two Brothers and Coffee Bender by Surly. I'm not a coffee drinker, but these capture all the best notes of coffee in my opinion.
recently i tried this vermont Longtrail brewmaster's series coffee stout was pretty good
you can never go wrong with BCBCS and FBS but my all-time favorite is
you have to go to the brewery to get it
ALESMITH VIETNAMESE SPEEDWAY STOUT
i also like a lot of the other variants of speedway stout
Haven't had too many lately but I did have Renegade Sunday Morning (Coffee infused strong ale) on Monday and thought it was a great beer. Like nothing I had previosly. I would definitely go back for another or drink tailgating.
Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought Big Bad Baptist was already aged in whiskey barrels.
If you're looking for barrel aged, go for Big Bad Baptist ( I can send you one if you can't find it). For non barrel aged, go for Wake N Bake by Terrapin. Breakfast Stout is great, but I think Wake N Bake is better if you're really into coffee
Wake N Bake, Peche Mortel or Beer Geek Brunch Weasel hmm...guess I'll have to try them all again and see what I think - coffee beer tasting coming up!
Hardywood Sidamo, brewed with some of the best local coffee I've had. But on the easier to get side, I have to agree with the Wake n' Bake and Breakfast Stout. BCBCS is a favorite too, but also fairly hard to track down.
Wake-n-Bake or Bourbon County Coffee... completely different beers but both are amazing!
Tie between Shorts Cup of Joe and Epic Big Bad Baptist. Both are amazing.
Vietnamese Speedway Stout and Big Bad Baptist (Batch #7)
Iron Joe by Rahr and Sons
Southern Tier Mokah and Javah
Java Sutra Coffee Porter by three heads in Rochester, NY. Not given a great rating by this site by I really like it.
Troegs JavaHead, BP Victory at Sea, and Flying Dog Kujo. Damn good
You're right, my bad. I get distracted easily
Wake N Bake
Anchor Porter Infused with Jittery Joes Coffee Beans (beans used in WnB)
Glad to see I'm not the only one.
I've had a lot of coffee beers and a lot of the ones mentioned in this thread, but this is possibly my personal favorite. More stout than coffee and that's the way I like it.
New Glarus Coffee Stout- crazy good flavor for under 6%
FBS - Classic
Pearl Street Jahva Lava- Never had a beer that tasted that much like coffee
Dark Horse Perkulator
KBS - Good, to expensive and the coffee gets over powered
Will be recieving Terrapin Wake and Bake soon so things could change I suppose!
I can't believe it's only been mentioned once but Bell's Java Stout is definitely one of the best coffee beers around. It's just perfect. And it should be widely available in Indiana.
As far as coffee beers I've had recently that were really good I would say Midnight Sun Brew-Tality and Epic Big Bad Baptist. Brew-Tality is actually a black lager and to be honest it blows away most coffee stouts.
completely agree. Best coffee beer I've had, period.
Bourbon Barrel Sumatra Brown that founders tapped along with KBS at last year's release. Blew KBS out of the water.
I've only had it once but I think I have to agree with you there. There's a lot of great coffee beers out there, but this one is the closest to actually drinking coffee.
from my coffee beer run this morning:
all delicious but my favorite has to be the BCBCS...
Surly Coffee Bender on tap. Best of the style I have had, and frankly blew a hole through everything else I have tried.
Founders Breakfast Stout
Epic's Big Bad Baptist
Great Divide's Espresso Oak Aged Yeti
Terrapin's Wake n Bake
Santa Fe's Imperial Java Stout
victory at sea
Had BCBCS for the first time last week. Lives up to the hype.
And although hard to track down, FFF Hell's Black Intelligencer
