First had: on tap at Laurelwood Public House, Portland, OR

Poured a translucent brownish black with a small cap of tan head that receded to a thin layer. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee. I liked the smell; the taste on the other hand... It's a well-known fact that I hate coffee. It's pure evil. However, I do like coffee beers, when done correctly, and I've even brewed a coffee stout myself. This beer though, is the kind of coffee beer that--in my humblest opinion--is not done correctly. There's a lot you can do with coffee in beer, but when the final product tastes like flat, cold coffee, that just doesn't sit well with me. And that was my problem with this beer. Otherwise, medium-bodied and a bit thin for the style. I would not want to drink this again.

Bottled: unk, first time I've seen this one, so newish?

Pours a nice opaque ale with a little latte ring and broken surface. No lace. Smells like...coffee. Really, really coffee forward this one, I dig it though - kinda a spicy, sharp and earthy blend with nutty hints. Flavor is roasty and coffee laden with some sweet malts in the background. There is a bit of a single dimension to the beer. Body is thin and watery for style and has moderate carb. A decent beer, I would like to see some additional body and a little sweetness up ended with this degree of coffee addition. Although I'd drink again, I would prefer a smaller format, this is too much coffee for one sitting for me.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black with a decent off-white head. Medium collar. Some transparency at the edges.

Smell - Coffee. Lots of coffee. A hint of creamy sweetness behind the coffee.

Taste - And it's all coffee. Bitter coffee. Slight bit of milk chocolate, but it's really just coffee.

Mouthfeel - Medium light. Bitter. Well carbonated, too much, really.

Overall - It's all coffee. If that's your thing, I guess it's good, but I'd just order an iced coffee instead.

Bomber poured into my Meantime snifter, Laurelwood's Organic Portland Roast Espresso Stout is super dark, blackish brown, with a large dark tan head, the first 1/2 of which is quick to settle, the remainder rather creamy, but with some large bubbles that furthered the dissipation, leaving foamy lace.

Smell is a blast of bakers chocolate and espresso, strong and fresh. As it warmed, it was more caramel. A lot like my wife's favored caramel macchiato from starbucks, in fact.

Taste is also lots of bitter chocolate and espresso, but there is a milky component that I assume is lactose, which I don't like ever, even though I appreciate they were trying to tie in the cream from the coffee theme. Still, the coffee is dominant enough that it doesn't detract much, but in general, this wasn't my favorite coffee beer. Strong coffee flavor though for sure, maybe that's the problem, not enough beer nuance?

Mouthfeel has a sharpness too it, even though there's lots of fine carbonation, with an oily body that's definately coffee like.

Drinkability is ok, a good enough beer but not one I can really see coming back to. Good for a late night in the office when you don't really want to be slugging it back to quickly. Got coffee? Yes. Got anything else? No...

22oz bottle poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint...

Appears black at first but some nice crimson edges show through when held to the light. One finger of light tan head leaves some lacing behind...

Strong coffee/espresso with roasted dark malts. Sweet and slightly boozy when swirled...

Strong coffee/espresso component at first, as expected. Bitter coffee, roasted dark malts with a mild hop bite at the end. Not much sweetness to speak of...a bit one-sided...

A bit thin and watery, I always expect stouts to drink fuller just based on their appearance, and I am always let down...

Not bad, regular stouts/coffee stouts are just not my thing...

Snagged up a bottle... usually have their beers on tap, but not this one.

- Rather average looking stout... black, dark brown.. can't really see through it in my tumbler glass.... slim amount of light mocha head... leaves a nice little ring.

- Light cocoa, chocolate, and bitter coffee... perhaps just a small zing of bitter hop... some mild grain, and oat. Overall just average.

- Nice blended flavors... nice subtle coffee and bitterness from it in the background.... chocolate mats... oats.... light. Like your most basic stout... with a neat little coffee kick to it.

- Light bodied, drinks smooth and light.. not too dry... overall nice.

- A good standard stout which drinks easy because of how smooth and light it is... the flavors are nice, and all very subtle. Overall it's just another plain stout to me.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

22oz bottle from 2009.

Pours opaque black with a thin head of beige that shrinks to nothing with zero lacing.

Aromatics lead off with strong coffee notes, char, molasses, bakers chocolate, and roast. Faintly sour fruit follows through.

On the fuller side of medium bodied with a slickish mouthfeel. A bit oily.

Roasted, smokey malt laced with sturdy coffee, dark chocolate, and a hint of Kahlua starts the palate. A trace of lactic tartness runs underneath and lingers amongst the coffee and stout character.

Finishes with dark coffee, burnt malt, and a very mild tartness.

This beer did not age well. The light tartness detracts and hints at an infection and the base beer is not big enough to overcome.

pours a jet black with a small tan head that dissipates, and some lacing.

smell is of cocoa, espresso, and a touch of licorice.

taste is thick, dark chocolate, and espresso bean, ends a little oily and bitter.

overall not that bad of a stout, pretty typical on the nose.

Bomber into a Duvel tulip. Thanks to vonschplieffen for sharing!

A: The body is essentially opaque and an extremely dark shade of brown (but not quite fully black), and lies underneath an inch of pale tan foam that's more frothy from the pour than creamy from intrinsic carbonation. Ok.

S: Pure, unadulterated coffee here. Darkly roasted, bitter, and, sadly, a bit thin. Enjoyable enough, but lacking in richness, depth, and complexity.

T: Starts out with a nicely balanced blend of bitter coffee and sweet malts (more caramel than chocolate), which is delicious, but then finishes with a cold, thin, watery blast of coffee astringency. There's lots of good stuff going on, and it's genuinely enjoyable to to drink, but the coffee definitely doesn't work quite as well as it could.

M: Rather thin body with moderate, soft carbonation. Not too bad.

D: It drinks about right for the ABV, but the astringency gets to be a bit much. Still tasty, though.

Notes: This is definitely a solid coffee stout, but it's not one I'll be seeking out. The coffee was more than prominent enough, but just wasn't the best-flavored coffee for a beer. If you want a non-imperial espresso stout, I'd recommend Captain Lawrence's version many times over compared to this one.

Cheers!

650ml bottle poured into a Goose Island Stout Fest '13 Mini Pint Glass.

The beer pours a deep jet black color, touches of cola brown with a thick yet fluffy khaki head that has good retention but leaves no lacing behind. The aroma is super coffee forward, mild roast and lightly fruity, with some chocolate and almost some milky aromas, very nice expression of coffee. The taste however is a bit of a weak spot, lots of roasted coffee, but quickly it turns to light cocoa mix and watered down milk with some sweet coffee malt at the finish. The body is light, thin and a bit watery that finishes with a carbonated bite.

Verdict: A decent American Stout from Laurelwood, the aroma is wonderful, but the flavors and body really leave something to be desired. I would find it very difficult to drink an entire bomber solo, good thing I was able to share this multiple ways.

The Organic Portland Roast Espresso Stout poured a pitch black color with a massive tight bubble foam head. Good retention not much in the way of lacing which was probably to the tight head.

The smell was faint and what I could get was lightly roasted coffee but not much else. The taste was clean smooth and a little bitter. Smooth like an espresso and not a cup of joe. The mouth feel was very thin for a stout but left some good bitterness on the tongue. Overall a good brew just not great in my opinion.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance- Pours up a whole bunch of head which looks to have pretty good retention as well. The head is a medium to dark beige while the body is an opaque, dark chocolate black. Some spots of lacing and some rings as well.

Nose- As with many coffee stouts, the aroma is pretty much a one-trick pony. Coffee, coffee, and more coffee. It is pretty good smelling coffee though. Slight notes of sourness and slight fruitiness around the edges but this is minor. Swirl and there's more coffee. It think you get my drift.

Taste- Very reflective of the nose- the flavor profile is pretty much all coffee. Some fruitiness and sourness on the finish but this seems to come from the coffee and works well with the overall profile. This is a really good coffee stout but it's a little one dimensional. Great presence, balance, and integration- it simply lacks the complexity I desire. Still, a good beer that has no real flaws and flirts with being really good. Some chalk to a pretty dry finish. Very effective beer which seems to benefit from the basic idea of brewing a good stout and then adding top notch coffee to form a basically flawless and very tasty beer. These won't ever be must have beers for me but I will still drink and enjoy them.

Mouthfeel- Medium to heavy bodied with a good amount of syrup to the texture. Very light carbonation highlights this aspect even more. Bit of a dry finish.

Drinkability- Drinks like easygoing, alcoholic coffee. Doesn't have much to offer as far as other flavor notes but the coffee is pretty good and is fairly complex on its own. Just over 4 bucks a bomber makes this a pretty good buy. I would buy this again if I were the mood for a straight up, cheap coffee stout.

Overall- Good to really good, but closer to good. Doesn't innovate the style; it's simply a solid coffee stout. I would definitely give this a try. This will probably be a repurchase.

Thanks again to the Bier Stein for stocking this tasty brew.

A: Black as the night with some sexy looking lace around the glass

S: Smells like a strong coffee bomb with a mixture of chocolate and malts.

T: Obviously this is going to taste like a coffee flavored beer. I've been on a coffee flavored beer binge as of late, and this one takes the cake.

M: Not a thick stout, but it was real nice and smooth going down.

D: I've had this before, and I enjoyed it much more the last time I had it. Maybe I'll try it again next year.

Serving type- A 22 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours a dark chocolate brown, almost black but I do see hues of dark brown. Their is a small tan finger lace present and a little carbonation activity after the pour.

S- I sensed a strong coffee smell, which I assume is the espresso comiong through. I would not consider myself an expert coffee drinker/afficianado so I am only guessing as to the exact source of the coffee smell.

T- As with the smell the strong coffee taste hits you from the start. It smooths out at the end leaving a somewhat bitter after taste. Overall a good flaovr combination that makes this an easy drinking beer.

I recieved this as an extra in a trade with madhombrewer and I am very happy with what he sent. The trade we had setup was for, among other things, a Laurelwood Moose and Squirrel and even though I did not mention this to him I also wanted to try this. Even though this hasn't been the best American Stout I have ever had it is a fair representation of the style. A good beer that because of its ABV could be a nice session beer. I like the heavy coffee presesence on this beer, I have had other brewers who used coffee and this was up there as far as compared with those. If this were available to me on a regular basis I would certainly have this again. Good stuff.

Poured into a Reuben's Brew snifter. Pours pitch black, opaque in the glass with a thin, light brown head that maintains a thin film and ring around the glass, leaving light lacing. Nice aroma of sweet toasted malt and quality coffee, light cocoa. Flavor is brewed coffee, toaste malt with light char, mild cocoa. Light to medium bodied. A nice coffee stout, with the coffee being its best feature, very inviting on the aroma and maintaining through the taste. The malt body is not quite as substantial as hoped to support the coffee flavors, leaving the coffee slightly stark on the finish.The coffee and malt char play well against each other. Except for a somewhat thin body, a well balanced and enjoyable coffee stout.

A: as I poured the color was of brown with deep bourbon. Once in the glass it is far from solid black by any means, but deep brown coffee and bister with soft orange highlights. Head was in good order and brown sugar in color that became frothy and chunky at spots. This helped in securing globs of lace randomly being tossed about

S: a good nose of roasted coffee and grains up front. It is very much espresso beans....of the dark variety. Maybe a whiff or two of cocoa hidden in the back. Otherwise roasted coffee steals the show. It says it is made with Portland Roasting Coffee

T: first and foremost the java presence is adamant. This is followed by a soft oily bitterness, maybe a delicate dusting of hops. Malts have a reasonable backing and give way to slight toasted biscuity notes at times, I sometimes think a light roasted nuttiness. Light cocoa is reminiscent of bittersweet chocolate chips melted and soaked in the beans. Things maintain a well overall balance for the flavors involved

M: if I was to give sub-par marks this would be the category. Not that it is way off the mark, it is just reasonably light to be labeled a stout. I have had porters heavier than this and the stout label is stretch. Anyway, body is a well to do medium, lightly carbonated, and has a slick appeal. By no means is it disagreeable

D: I like my stout huge and thick, especially when coffee is involved. I wish this Laurelwood brew was a bit more meaty! In any event, they have made a good coffee brew

Appearance. Pours a deep brown-red, almost black with a finger of tan head that leaves a little lacing.

Smell. Molasses, coffee, milk chocolate and a hint of vanilla.

Taste. Coffee, caramel, roasty malt, some molasses, a little wood maybe, a bit of bitterness that lasts a minute or so.

Mouthfeel. Medium body, medium carbonation.

Overall. A solid coffee stout.

22 oz bomber brought back from Portland by fthomasl, thanks homie! Pours a not-quite-black color with a touch of highlighting around the edges. Some light tan foam in there, but not much and it fades pretty fast. Mild lacing.

Whoa, quite possibly the most coffee smelling beer I have ever had. Straight up freshly ground espresso beans and not much else. Strong, roasty and smells very fresh.

Taste is a nice combo of slightly sweetened malts and heavy coffee-induced roasty bitterness. Carbonation is about right and mouthfeel is only a tad short of medium. If you like coffee, there is no doubt you will like this beer. Somewhat one-dimensional, but that is to be expected with a brew that leans so strongly to one flavor profile. I think I am actually getting a caffeine buzz from this one! FBS might be the only beer I'd pick for breakfast over this fine beverage.

22oz bottle poured into a large snifter

I have reservations about the way this beer looks. The opacity doesn't match my model of a stout -- it's fairly translucent. Say, a darker than average scotch ale. Perhaps my judgment is skewed by drinking too many imperial stouts lately, but the lightness of color is putting me off a bit. Head is small but fluffy , light brown.

Smell is utterly dominated by coffee. If you're not a coffee person, just based on the smell, I would probably skip this beer. Luckily I'm a coffee person, and it's pretty alluring. Somewhere under the coffee I can barely detect some faint yeasty/bready aroma.

Taste is dominated by coffee, but not as much as the scent. I get a lot more going on here -- there's some cherry, lots more roasty malt, some creaminess and sweetness that makes me think of milk stouts.

Mouthfeel is creamy but light. Overall, this is pretty good, but surprisingly light in color.

This time, the beer is definitely not translucent. Smell and flavor still dominated by coffee. I don't get any cherry. Aside from that, mostly the same.

My dear wife, not a coffee lover, is having this beer as well. She has reservations due to the coffee nature.

I can't believe how strongly you can smell the coffee. Lacks the creaminess that I thought I noticed before. Not much cherry, either.

Served in a cognac snifter.

Appearance: Solid, opaque black. It has an almost muted (matte) look to it (could be my glassware). Looking down through the top, however, it looks more like a porter with hints of chestnut browns throughout. The head is a very pleasing, dense, light tan color. Despite this appearance, however, there is very little head retention. A bit disappointing.

Smell: Smells a bit like a porter too. I get the dry, roasty notes typical of the stout's lighter brother. That strong, roasted espresso smell makes itself known accompanied by some light chocolate (likely just my imagination) and an earthy finish. I'd like a more robust aroma but its still not bad.

Taste: The front end of the brew isn't that great (tastes a bit watery) but once it reaches the middle of the tongue the smooth flavors of milk chocolate and roasted espresso are left behind. If feels a bit like the flavor actually follows the procession of the actual liquid as you drink it. The taste lingers pleasantly on the pallet, a few warmer notes coming out at the end.

Mouthfeel: Much lighter than I would expect from a stout. If this was marketed as a porter I would say cheers, its spot on. Its smooth and a little creamy as you drink it. Not nearly so much as more prestigious and well known stouts, but pleasant. Given that I'm enjoying it so much, I'm going to ignore my expectations of this class of beer and just enjoy it.

Drinkability: Is anything Laurelwood makes not ridiculously drinkable? It goes down sweet and easy. I wouldn't mind drinking this all day.

This beer reminds me why I love Laurelwood. Its a good, relatively simple beer that is ridiculously drinkable. I wish they had a brewpub in San Luis Obispo since I can only ever get there beer in the winter when I'm at home or when a bottle is shipped to me. Cheers!

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a pint glass at 48F.

A - This has all the visual qualities of a good stout. Nice inky blackness, thick, pillowy head the shade of mocha (or maybe even crema). The foam lingers, minimal to moderate lacing.

S - One shot of espresso mixed with one shot of stout. The espresso is really strong in this one. Aroma-wise the coffee overpowers the beer aspects, but this works for me since I love the smell of coffee.

T - Lots of coffee again - easily the strongest coffee-flavored stout I have tried, and in a good way. I can't speak much to the actual stout backbone since the coffee flavors really linger on the palete. I would rate this higher if as an espresso-based drink, but as just a stout, the coffee outweighs any beer elements.

M - My only other disappointment here is that it is a bit thin. Perhaps a silkier mouthfeel with some additional creaminess would help this one.

D - Actually quite high - jeez, I could see drinking this in the AM. Probably would be good over vanilla ice cream too if thats your thing. It really is more coffee than beer.

22oz bomber poured to an Oskar Blues rocks tumbler.

A: Pours a smooth, jet black hue with a rocky khaki cap. Looks like a cup of joe for sure. Head is on the thin side, dissipating quickly after the pour. Virtually no lacing.

S: Aromas of dry, ground coffee dominate the nose. Smells mainly like rich, dark black coffee. A bold, earthy darkness melds with toasted bread, fresh barrels of roasted coffee beans, and some soil. Hints of sweet vanilla back in there. The bright, berry acidity that the Ethiopian coffee provides is detectable in the nose, balancing nicely with the earthiness of the Sumatran bean.

T: Coffee... and lots of it. Darkly roasted Sumatran beans create a dominate earthiness and nutty coffee backbone. As with the nose, a bright (coffee) berry acidity melds with the darker notes, clearly coming from the Ethiopian beans. Bark amid immense coffee flavors that have the feel and body of your basic roasty stout. Different but good.

MF: Clean, smooth... a lighter textured stout. Not a ton of body. Maybe a little waxy in the front of the mouth. Medium carbonation.

O: If you don't like coffee, you won't like this beer. If you understand the differences between beans, roasting profiles, and have had a few coffee cupping experiences, then you will surely appreciate this brew. The balance between the acidic Ethiopian brightness and the dark earthy Sumatran beans make this beer a phenomenal take on a coffee brew. Definitely less of a beer for the beer connoisseur and more a brew for a coffee enthusiast. Pure coffee to its roots.... It might even give you coffee breath.

A: Slightly translucent, 1 finger head that dissipates to a ring quickly.

S: Dark roasted coffee, cocoa, mild malt

T: Good balance on the espresso, was not as acidic as I was expecting, definitely a true coffee stout.

M: Thin, but to be expected from a 6%...a bit over carbonated.

D: Glad I tried it, not a disappointment by any means...just not a must have again. Might be a good hangover beer followed by a firkin of water.
