A caramel centered stout accentuated by Ridge Runner French Roast coffee. Instead of simply adding coffee to a stout, we build a stout around the coffee. Coarse ground coffee beans are added in the conditioning tank. Carefully selected coffee adds notes of rich chocolate and toffee to this robust stout.

Picked up a 12 oz can from the Blue Door Bottleshop 2-17-22 for $3.00. Canned 12-16-21; consumed 5-2-22.

Beer poured black with a very nice tan head that has some nice hang time.

Nose is coffee and caramel forward which is a nice combination.

Taste is a moderate sized medium roasted malt base that is integrated very well with the coffee bean base. Note of caramel lend a very light touch of sweetness. Finishes with adequate hopping to balance things out. No notes of acrid coffee in the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth.

Overall a really enjoyable coffee stout!

Just a bit too sweet for me. A very nice stout with a relatively low ABV but I can probably only drink one of these per session. The aroma of coffee, chocolate with some roasted bitterness cutting through works well.

Poured from a can into a pint glass.

Appearance: Dark brown, with only the slightest hint of translucence when held up to light. Large, fluffy head.

Smell: Complex. Lightly roasted coffee, milk chocolate, dark fruit, maybe a touch of hops.

Taste: Roasted coffee beans and barley, dark chocolate. Bitter but not acrid.

Feel: Light-to-medium bodied, with light carbonation.

A wonderful blend of chocolate and coffee into a mid bodied stout. A little bitter in the finish but not too toasty/ashy like some. I like the ABV on this one at 6.5% which makes it very hearty and beefy without being too heavy as it’s still somewhat sessionable and not a sipper. Highly recommend.

Love the artwork. Canned 1/20/20
Pours a tan almost brown colored foamy frothy dense large 1.5 finger head with good retention, nice soapy lacing, jet black color

Nose fresh nutty coffee, a little toasted coffee bean, but smooth like it was cold brewed or extracted, rich toasted earthy nutty and slight chocolatey coffee, a little cocoa as well, milk chocolate and maybe lactose?, hint of caramel and spice

Taste brings more coffee up front again, very toasty, some chocolate chip pancake like notes and toasted bread crust, cocoa and dark chocolate as well as some creamy lactose like milk chocolate, coffee is toasty and a little nutty, touch earthy and spicy as well, med-light bitterness, a touch fruity on the back end as well, mild caramel and baking spices late, drier finish med bitterness and mild spicy hops kicking in

Mouth is med to fuller bod, a bit creamy lush, med foamy carb

Overall nice coffee stout, coffee is definitely present without overpowering or becoming acrid/burnt like, barley even any roast characters, just nice rich coffee, dark chocolate stout, and creamy oats or lactose notes, heavy but easy drinking at the same time for a Saturday afternoon.
