Nice breakfast stout. Thought the coffee (Valparaiso) was exceptionally good addition. Reminded me a bit of Ryan Bros. coffee that I love in Speedway Stout. All in all a very good coffee stout with that touch of sweetness that doesn't distract but helped keep bitterness under control. Would drink this often if I lived near by.

Valparaiso Cafe & Roastery - Brazilian Yellow Bourbon Peaberry Samambaia

Appearance- Pours black with a tan, half-finger's width head. Sub-par retention, resulting in a mostly barren surface and a thin ring of suds around the edge of the glass. Fair lacing, mostly made up of small spots here and there.

Smell - The aroma hits prominently on milk chocolate and coffee roast. Slight smokiness.

Taste - As with the nose, opens up with milk chocolate and roasted coffee flavor. Hint of smoke before a bit of caramel sneaks in and strengthens toward the finish. Faint berry buzzes on the tongue. The finish is a bit more sweet than roasty, with the aforementioned caramel taking lead from the fading chocolate and coffee character, and it lingers with some sweet creaminess as well.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Slick, silky texture with a slightly dry finish.

Overall - Pretty tasty coffee stout. Nice balance of roast and sweetness. I don't know about dropping $5 on a single can again, but I'm glad to have tried it.

Very well done Coffee Stout. Had this on nitro at the brewery. I like my coffee stouts w/o the bitterness some tend to have. This was very coffee forward, but still creamy, not bitter. In fact, you could of switched this with my morning cold brew and I wouldn't have been able to tell, except for the rich viscosity. If you like coffee forward beers, seek this out.

On tap at the brewery. Judging from this beer and the porter I'd love to try the barrel aged stuff but at $5 a taster I think I'll pass on them this time through Fresno.

A breakfast stout? Yes please. Really looking forward to this one. I don’t think I’ve had a bad breakfast stout yet and this one looks really good.

Poured an almost pitch black color with 1-to-2 fingers of khaki tan fizzy head, which thinned out rather quickly. Average amount of sporadic lacing on the sides of the cup. Below average retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.75)

Smelled dark, deep roasty, coffee malts. Also dark chocolate, bitter coffee beans, smoky fire, char wood, ashtray and dark cocoa. (Smell - 4.25)

Tasted just awesome, getting dark roasty coffee malts, bitter dark chocolate, smoky fire, char wood, ashtray, dark cocoa, dark caramel sweetness, roasty nuts and artificial vanilla. (Taste - 4.50)

Full body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, bitter finish. (Feel - 4.50)

Really liked this and I think I’d put this up against Founders Breakfast Stout. Lovely. (Overall - 4.50)
