I just had LongTrail Coffee Stout the other night for the first time...very tasty, and made with ingredients from the Vermont Coffee Company...part of the Brewmaster Series.
Great Beer, not sure if you can get it in PA.
So, the obvious answer is FBS, as many here have pointed out. But if you like light stuff, seek out Dark Horse Perkulator... it's a doppelbock with coffee flavor, and somehow works.
No, but I see it is stocked at our local TW. The Oatmeal Porter is good, but I will try your suggestion. I am a fan of Highland, and when SN gets ups and running in Asheville, I may have to move there.
Grand Teton Wake Up Call Imperial Porter, Wake n Bake, FBS, Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout (off the top of my head)
Java Head is pretty damn good
For coffee taste in beers, here are the ones I start with:
Flounders: Breakfast Stout
Brooklyn: Chocolate Stout
Southern Tier: Choklat
Rogue: Chocolate Stout
Lagunitas: Cappucinno Stout
Agreed! Based on you (OP) being located in PA, this has to be one that you pick up.
Victory at Sea is the correct answer
I know Furthermore distributes to some parts of Pennsylvania, and from your description it sounds like you would like their Oscura Coffee Lager.
This is the correct answer.
For a coffee beer, I would think Jahva would be recommended over Choklat from STBC. For the best of both worlds you can also have Mokah, which is (obviously) a combination of the two.
Epic Big Bad Baptist is pretty damn delicious.
Peruvian Morning. It got some good distribution this year, so it's much easier to score this go-round. Thunderstruck is a nice one as well.
For a PA person, easily available, Troegs Javahead is the easy winner out of the things listed.
Tried Kujo yesterday and I too feel it's a worthy recommendation.
Loving this one these days...
Haven't seen this one mentioned: http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/741/2870
Fuel Cafe Coffee stout is pretty good
Wow, I wasn't aware there were so many coffee flavored beers. Guess I have some work cut out for me now, printing all those names then going to the distributor (who I don't think will have any of these) then going to my bar that has some extraordinary beers. I should be able to find at least a few of these. Thanks for the help and suggestions.
I find fullers london porter has some nice coffee flavor to it when its pretty fresh.
I'd recommend Wake N Bake from Terrapin, Breakfast Stout from Founders. Both awesome coffee beers.
I gotta say that Big Hugs by Half Acre is the winner for me- just cracked a bottle on Friday and the coffee character blew me away! Since that brew is pretty limited, my next best definitely goes to the aforementioned Schlafly Coffee- especially if less than 1 month old.
Wolavers Alta Gracia Coffee Porter, Southern Tier Jah-va, Meantime Coffee Porter, Berkshire Coffee Porter, Ballast Point Vanilla Coffee Porter, Bridgeport Cafe Negro are a few that I've had and love.
Yeah, dont know if you see this in your parts, but this was a solid coffee stout, and great value at $4.49.
There's only one 5-gallon cask of it available each year, but the answer for me is a no-brainer:
Coffee-Infused Imperial Stout Trooper
Just tried a Wolavers Alta Gracia porter for the first time last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Coffee flavors really stood as the base beer didn't seem too strong.
Kona Pipeline Porter is pretty good too.
Trade for some Short's Cup-A-Joe. Other than that...+1 to Founders Breakfast Stout.
Um...hello?! Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout! http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/1146/57747
I'm a big fan of Coffee Flavored Beers (including the Black & Brew, which you mentioned). Here are some I like, though I'm not fully sure of what some of these have for availability in PA:
Berkshire Brewing Company CoffeeHaus Porter
Atwater Block Vanilla Java Porter
Three Heads Java Sutra Porter
Also not quite coffee, but one along those lines, that you might like:
Rogue Hazelnut Brown
Oh, also the Dogfish Head WorldWide Stout.
Terrapin Wake N Bake has the greatest coffee flavor I've had yet. Also some other great coffee brews:
Founders Breakfast Stout
Cigar City Cubano Style Espresso
Surly Coffee Bender
Terrapin W-n-B, Bell's Java Stout, Founders Breakfast Stout, and Pisgah Valdez all jump out.
Wolavers Alta Gracia Coffee Porter and Three Heads Java Sutra are 2 that I have enjoyed lately. They should be readily available in your area.
You didn't want to mention Dogfish Head Chicory Stout? C'mon Man!
Central Waters Peruvian Morning.
I thought i didn't like coffee beers until I had Great Divide's Espresso yet, by far my favorite and a top 10 pick for me.
Lagunitas Cappuccino stout is also great
Deschutes Black Butte Porter, Real Ale Coffee Porter
