The Stupid Stout was a good offering from Coronado. It poured an opaque black with tan head that did not lace. The scent and taste was smokey with hints of bacon and peat. The beer was evenly balanced and is a nice sipping stout. The mouthfeel was fuller in body with smooth carbonation. Overall its solid.

Black body, dark sandy head that is dense with some craters. Thick. I don't care for the goofy font on the label, however. Smell and flavor are sweet but not overly so, with milk chocolate and toasty caramel malt shining through, faint milkshake cream in the background and just a hint of bitterness from both charred malt and hops. The body is thick and viscous, as promised.
A simple but well executed stout. It lacks the range and complexity of really great stouts, but it matches them for balance and depth, and even exceeds them in drinkability. This is the third in a row of gems from Coronado.

Deep dark rich malty, hints of chocolate and coffee. A very good stout!

Vintage 2014 (Date: 1/5/16) poured into a snifter it has a black body and a khaki head of 2 and a half inches. Smell of a ton of chocolate and coffee, vanilla, alcohol, roasted malt, and just a tiny bit of earth. Taste is chocolate, slight coffee, some roasted malt, good amount of vanilla, caramel, a little too much dirt/earth, alcohol, and a slight metallic. Mouth feel is full, crisp but slightly over carbonated, and a full body as well. A decent stout for the right price but not fantastic.

On draft and poured into a tulip glass.

Black color with a small mocha colored head that leaves waves of lacing around the rim of the glass. Very inviting.

Smells of chocolate, roasted malt and light coffee.

Taste is similar to the nose with some soft smokey notes. Finishes with bitter chocalate and coffee.

Mouthfeel is soft and slick. Ample carbonation moves things along nicely.

This is quite good. Nice simple flavor profile. Sweet at the front of the mouth with a bitter smokey finish. I would have again. A well built, enjoyable offering. Recommended and glad I got to try on draft.

Thick black colored beer with a dark brown colored head.

Smells of chocolate Kahlua and coffee. Scents of caramel and smoke.

Starts out mildly sweet and full of chocolate. Slight amount of acid from a ton of patent malt used to get this as dark as it is. Coffee comes out more as it warms. Not a lot of subtle flavors just a straight forward stout.

Mouthfeel is thick.

Overall a good straightforward stout with no faults.
