Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Stony Joe is a Golden Mocha Stout. It is designed like a traditional Milk Stout but without using the typical roasted dark malts. Instead we use a boat load of rich, decadent golden colored English barley, flaked barley, flaked oats, and flaked wheat to give it lush body and smooth sweetness. We then ferment it on Cocoa Nibs and add fresh locally roasted Guatemalan Coffee, directly to the fermenter. We are excited to partner with Redding Roasters Coffee Company of Bethel, CT on this mind bending beer.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on December 18, 2017.

It pours an unfiltered or hazy looking golden yellow underneath a large, lasting frothy white head. Sediments floating about.

The aroma has a cocoa and coffee character with an orange fruitiness behind that and some corn.

The body is about medium and creamy.

I get a creamy, coffee taste with a hint of cocoa and ending with a mildly bitter finish. The sweetness is there for the entire experience.

Stony Joe just doesn't fit the normal criteria it's an exceptional beer has awesome coffee flavor but it's subtle it's just a well-made drinkable nice beer.

Our first American Stout was a very good introduction. A deceiving golden color and Mocha nose is followed by a very smooth and easy drinking beer with primarily Mocha flavor coming through. Not bitter or overpowering. If the color was more coffee-like it may have been more inviting. Not sure what type of food pairs with it.
