Narragansett Brewing Co.
Rhode Island, United States

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.

Poured a dark coffee color with a 4F head in a stein. The head resolves itself within a few minutes.

Very strong roasted coffee wafts from the head ( and from the can).

The body is very light which works well for the style.

The taste is strong roasted coffee with some lemon and possibly vanilla.

There is a slight roasted coffee bitterness in the finish.

The coffee aroma/taste mellows with warming.

An easy beer to drink which tastes like a higher ABV beer. There is lots of character to this beer.
It's my new favorite from Gansett.

Love my stouts and finding cans very appealing. The pour from this one was black as I would expect any stout to be. But when I opened the can and could hear the phsssshhh, I knew there was going to be a lot of carbonation.

The aroma was a typical stout, chocolate with coffee and a layer of malt. The taste, wasn't exactly what I had hoped for. While the beer taste itself wad good, there was just too much carbonation in this beer, that it reminded me of one of a less inexpensive style of beer.
Too much fizzz
But drinkable

16 oz. tallboy can poured into a Guinness glass.

A: Deep brown with a rich, frothy two fingers of off-white head that fades to a solid chunky lace.

S: Coffee but also a nice amount of sweetness...really reminiscent of a glass of coffee milk with a touch of chocolate.

T: Silky smooth with some roasty notes, low bitterness, and mild coffee coming through. The coffee shines but doesn't overtake the sweetness of the stout. More of a milk stout with coffee added than a coffee stout.

M: Medium bodied and silky smooth with a perfect creaminess. Easy drinking and can I say a perfect session stout?

O: Absolutely fantastic offering here from good old 'Gansett. Have to say this would wash down a couple of hot weinies quite well!

Pint can into a pint glass.

A: Pours dark black, some ruby hues when held to light at the bottom of the glass. The head was very creamy, about two fingers and a khaki color. Nice blotches of lace on the glass with each sip.

S: I get a slightly sweet, roasty creamy coffee, some lingering milk chocolate, almost like a chocolate syrup.

T: Follows the nose, lots of coffee roast blended with a bittersweet sweet, creamy chocolate, I'm getting some char and barley roastiness too, maybe a touch of vanilla in there, some earthiness when swirled.

M: Very drinkable, most coffee stouts tend to be bigger, viscous brews. This one is medium bodied, and is a bit creamy with soft carbonation. It is smooth, and sessionable as well.

O: 'Gansett did a solid job with this one. Very easy drinking coffee brew. Unlike most coffee infused stouts that need to be sipped, this one goes down very easily and would go well with a classic New England Breakfast, couple over easy, some hash browns bacon and sausage.

Pours nice and dark brown. Little chocolate head too. Smells like nice toasty coffee with some hints of sweet cream and some smoke. Taste is super big and rich coffee, maybe a little bit of char though. Fills in with some nice creaminess then a dryer finish. Feels thin bodied but really coats the mouth.

Not epic but a great coffee stout and a steal for the price!

16oz Tall Boy. Pours a super dark brownish black color with a half inch of khaki head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is sweet chocolate with light and sweet cofee. Slight amount of earth. The taste is when the roasty coffee flavor comes out. Dark and sweet coffee with some milk chocolate. Earth and bittersweet dark chocolate towards the end. Finishes nicely with some more of the coffee and lactose. Mouthfeel is light with lots of carbonation. Very drinkable. Overall, a great addition to the 'Gansett lineup. I hope this one becomes part of the regular lineup.

Poured to a sam smith pint glass from a tallboy can.

pours dark black with a 2 finger tan head that settles down slowly, nice tan lacing.

Not much to smell other than dark roasted coffee.

Nice taste of roasted coffee and dark malts not too overpowering.

I was surprised at the drinkability of this milkstout, I plan on drinking more of this in the future.
