Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Coffee Stout is a classic combination of a traditional stout and premium French roast coffee from St. Louis roaster, Kaldi’s Coffee. Roasted barley and coffee dominate the aroma, with the sweetness from the stout balancing the acidity of the coffee. We use a unique cold toddy extraction process to brew a less acidic coffee for the beer.

In the 1990’s, Kaldi’s staff started visiting the Schlafly Tap Room, asking for a pint of stout and a shot of espresso. Both Schlafly and Kaldi’s realized this was a match made in beer heaven, and soon started working together to find the perfect coffee blend to mix with our Oatmeal Stout. This collaboration continues today, with regular tastings to perfect the Coffee Stout.

A - Dark brown with no head.

S - Simply put smells like coffee...as it should!

T - This is by far the best "coffee stout" that I have tasted. Many stouts and porters have "hints" of coffee among other flavors. To me it tasted like I was drinking a delicious iced coffee...if you like coffee you will love this beer. However, this is only for coffee lovers, if you are only an occasional coffee drinker this probably won't be the stout for you.

M - Smooth with minimal carbonation. Certainly not a chore to drink.

O - I think I covered it in "taste" but I had this on tap a week ago and craved it all week. I manged to find the last 6-pack in one of my local spots and while the bottle isn't quite the experience the tap was, I would still recommend this beer to all lovers of stouts and coffee.

A- Pretty rich dark brown espresso. Medium lacing around the glass. Very little head in the glass.

S- More malt than coffee from the nose.

T- Pretty decent coffee stout. Some coffee comes out of the beer, but some great malty stout there too.

M- Pretty thin here. My lowest rating for this beer.

O- A well done coffee stout considering all of them that have been done.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Ruby dark brown with a finger of khaki head, medium spotty lacing.
S - Roasted oats and coffee beans, very biscuity malt, a little hop tone underneath.
T - There's large oat presence in this, and then is subtly followed by coffee notes, some burnt caramels, again, big on the biscuit malt, and some dark earthy and spicy hop notes underneath.
M - Smooth, decently lighter in feel compared to your average beer of this style.
O - If you like oat stouts, this is a good one, just a nice hint of coffee.

Bottle: Poured a deep black color stout with a large light brown foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of dry coffee notes with light roasted malt. Taste is dominated by dry bitter coffee notes with and almost spicy finish. Light bitter black chocolate notes are also noticeable. Body is a bit light for style with good carbonation. Too bitter for my taste with coffee notes veering into stringency territory.

Thanks to SplashyFob and his friend for this one.

An agressive pour yields a finger of tan head that dissipates in a minute or so. I am left with a rich dark coffee colored body with a frothy little ring around the top. Faint lace sticks to the side of the glass.

I smell roasted malt, roasted nuts and roasted coffee.

Roasted malt and coffee make up the rather mild flavor on this one.

The mouthfeel is too light for me. I feel it should be creamier. The carbonation bites the middle of the tongue. Finishes with a little residue on the tongue.
