Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
A bittersweet, creamy, coffee-laced stout
First Release: August 2014
From imperial stouts to IPAs, we’ve discovered the tantalizingly roasty lift that comes from adding coffee beans to just about any kind of beer. This English-style milk stout, originally a limited-edition offering at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens - Liberty Station, proved the perfect foil for beans from San Diego-based Ryan Bros Coffee. The bitterness of the coffee is balanced out brilliantly by the milk sugar we used to add a touch of sweetness and creaminess to the stout’s smooth, easy-drinking texture. Cheers to the coalescence of two highly artisanal (and delectable) mediums.

Bottled on date is there. This taste spectacular. A great pairing with some breakfast food like bacon & eggs & bread. Cheers! A- (90-94) score range

Bottle: Poured a black color stout with a nice brown medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of floral coffee notes with some light sweet notes. Taste is a mix of floral coffee notes with light sweet notes, some lactose with some light black chocolate notes. Body is full for style with good carbonation. Superb example of the style.

This pours a coffee black with a luscious cap of cocoa colored cream. There's a wonderful aroma with a pleasing coffee roast character. Fantastic sipper, with a creamy coffee stout character. All around excellent beer.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. bottled 9/15/16, so about 11 months old.

Black as black body allowing no light to enter in. Good creamy thick head to begin with, dissipating to a solid covering with a ring, before disappearing completely about halfway through. Head is coffee with a dash of cream coloring. decent lacing at first.

roasted coffee aroma, however, it appears a little on the stale coffee side.

Medium roasted coffee on taste, nothing else.

Below medium on the mouth, stale roasted coffee on the finish.

Overall, while not a bad drink, I'd guess consuming it closer to bottling date might yield a better drink, even though bottle says can cellar up to 12 months.

Dark black, small tan head. Nose is Light coffee. Taste is typical of a sweet stout, added coffee gives it a little bite. Easy drinking, smooth feel. No one category jumps out as outstanding, but the higher overall score reflects a nice balance of all.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was jet black color with a slight bubbly to light foamy off white to tan head. Lacing was mostly obscure but lightly speckled here and there. The smell has a super nice graceful blend of coffee to milk chocolate. There’s a nice roastiness roaming all around. The coffee seems to be leaning towards the espresso side of the house on this one. The taste is pretty sweet but roasty with the coffee and the chocolate blending pretty well. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about this one. There’s a long dry sweet coffee/chocolate aftertaste with a quick sticky dry finish. Overall, this was a really nice sweet stout that I would like to have again.
