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.

Dark brown body, soapy head fades to a ring with tendrils of lace. Freshly ground black coffee nose with a bit of earthiness, neutral pH. Taste is nearly straight coffee, like a cappuccino (cream and sweetness), slight note of roasted malt and that yummy earthiness. Slightly bitter. Body is much too light, with pokey carbonation.
Big warm coffee notes accented with earth, which is highly enjoyable to me. The least beer-like most coffee-like beer I've had in recent memory, which is fine by me, just wish the body had more to it.

A: This poured an opaque cola with moderate tan head.
S: It smelled like fresh coffee and cream, with a bit of dark chocolate.
T: It tasted like coffee grounds, with some earthy dark chocolate. It had a somewhat dirty bitter aftertaste.
M: It was watery with a little carbonation. Thin body.
D: This had great scent, ok taste, and weak body. The finish was a little rough, so it wasn't super easy to drink. Not bad, but not great quality.

Opaque black.
Head settles quickly.
Smells great with lots of coffee.
Taste follows aroma with prominent coffee. No chocolate or dark fruit to speak of.
Mouth feel is thin, and lets down the experience.
Tastes good and smells nice, just no richness to the feel.
Good dessert beer.

The first coffee stout I've tried, and a welcome addition to the expanding set of Schlafly beers I very much enjoy. I don't always like oatmeal stouts, but this combination hits me just right. The coffee smell and taste is strong, but adds a welcome bite and counterbalance to the sweet smoothness of the stout.
