on tap at Filet 18 in Bloomsburg on 9/7/17.

Looks pretty good, black body coffee with cream head which persists leaving nice lacing initially

Aroma is all about the coffee.

The taste is also all about the coffee. There is only a hint of roasted malt, which I appreciate, not being a fan off stouts where the malt borders on burnt.

The mouth is on the thinner side, which is a bit of a letdown for the style. Finish is smooth and coffee.

Overall, if you like a lot of coffee in your stout, this is a pretty good option.

Serving: Can
Best before: Jan-2018 (Consumed: August 23rd)


A:
Pours a cascading black with a half-finger of mocha nitro head. Good retention; some lacing. (4)

S:
Rich, nutty coffee. (3.75)

T:
Same as the aroma with some light mineraly taste as well. (3.75)

M:
Easy-drinking body with a soft nitro feel, a little thin-feeling. (3.75)

O:
Tasty enough beer.
It is pretty coffee-centric, nice looking, smooth and a little nutty. Not a bad beer at all, but nothing too snazzy either. (3.5)

Pours a black brew with the usual long-lasting, brown nitro head. Appealing. Lots of coffee, cocoa, caramel, roasted malt. Dry taste, medium hoppiness. Tastes more like an Irish stout in my opinion. Not as much bold flavor as other beers of the same style. Medium bodied, smooth. Light carbonation. Overall a great brew.

I really liked this stout. The Nitro added smoothness and gave the beer a creamy and soft head that stayed a long time. Nitro is great.

Look: black color with a thick, creamy, good lacing, off-white head.

Aroma: roasted malts and chocolate

Taste: Roasted malts, sweet, dark chocolate, coffee. Very nice.

Feel: light to medium body, creamy

La Nitro Coffee Stout, de Samuel Adams, Abv 5,8%. Desde el sonido al abrir la lata es un animal completamente diferente. Una Stout con cafe real. La nitro cabeza espesa, parece mas un chocolate caliente que otra cosa por las microburbujas, se queda hasta la ultimo trago protegiendola del O2, verla subir tambien es un espectaculo. Aromas a cafe, chocolate, humo. Hiper-sedosa, dulce, buen amargor. Perfil de cafe que domina, chocolate, toffee, pasas. Desde ya subio al #1 de mi top 10.

Coffee stouts seem to be the rage in the past few years. Unlike traditional Irish style, coffee is added to provide the rich coffee taste. Sam Adams has created this interesting hybrid, a nitrogenated coffee stout, the first I have seen in the can anywhere. Exceptionally smooth and not overly sweet with low alcohol content, but rich with coffee flavor and subtle chocolate notes. Reasonably priced and readily available, this one is a winner.
