Notes / Commercial Description:
This beer is a unique collaboration between two iconic Rhode Island companies. A custom blend of Narragansett’s bittersweet milk Stout with dark, delicious Autocrat Coffee makes for a delightful beer that is more Rhode Island than Roger Williams himself. Since the 1890’s, Narragansett Beer and Autocrat Coffee have been home-grown Rhode Island favorites.

The appearance is mostly black with some dark brown edges. Topped by a creamy beige head. Retention is fairly good, with sheets of lacing left behind.

Smells like nutty medium-roast coffee, leaning towards burnt black coffee. Musty and grainy like old coffee grounds. Hints of toast, roasted barley, and dark chocolate in there as well.

Tastes like nutty medium-roast coffee, some acrid burnt coffee, dark chocolate, hints of milk chocolate, almond milk creamy sweetness, burnt toast, roasted grains. Smooth and well-balanced, neither bitter nor too sweet.

Feels medium, well-carbonated, smooth. A bit light, but not watery. Easily drinkable and refreshing.

A nice, easy-drinking coffee milk stout. Nice coffee aroma. Nothing inspiring, but a nice, solid, easy-drinking coffee stout. Good.

Smells like a cup of fresh brewed coffee. Tastes like a stout beer mixed with iced coffee. I’m surprised at how much I enjoyed this. I’d probably buy this more often if it was easier to find.

When you want to switch up from a Guiness it's a nice way to go. Certainly not as frothy, but give American stouts some love!

poured from a recent 16 oz can into the test glass.
A - Cup of coffee dark, gently carbonated, leads to a small frothy cap.
S - Coffee forward, then some bakers chocolate, and milk sugar.
T - Follows the nose perfectly, add a bit of bitter dark roast
M - A bit on the thin side, like a good cup of Joe. The start is semi sweet then a quick move toward the bitter side and nice coffee linger closes the experience
O - A very nice coffee milk stout. The feel is very muck in the cup of coffee scale, and thankfully not to muck milk sugar.

This beer pours a translucent dark brown with ruby highlights when held up to the light. The head is two fingers, creamy and light mocha colored. Retention is great for the style and there are many sticky patches of lacing left on the glass.

Smell is bitter black coffee, coffee grounds, smokiness and some roasted malts.

Taste is similar, but the coffee grounds are overwhelming. I love my coffee black, but this is more like chewing on grinds than drinking black coffee.

Feel is light with fairly high carbonation. The finish is bitter and very dry, which makes it almost feel as though you are licking spent coffee grinds.

Overall this beer is a miss for me. The coffee flavor is burnt and too bitter. Maybe a little more lactose sugar would have rounded this out.

16oz can, served in a snifter glass. Pours a dark cola brown body, nearly black with a one finger offwhite head, good retention and a bit of lacing. Smell is lactose, roasted grain, milk chocolate and black coffee; the milk chocolate dominates here which is nice, with coffee providing a bit of balance. Flavour is a smooth lactose and milk chocolate tempered a fair bit by black coffee bitterness; it is more of a roasted coffee bean flavour. Not terribly complex but it is exactly as advertised. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, creamy with a nice lactose-laden front cleaned up by a smooth, mildly earthy coffee finish.
