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.

12 oz. Bottle poured into a nonic pint glass.
Look - Like a rich cup of coffee with a big khaki head that takes it's time to settle. Lacing pools on top and travels down the sides of the glass.
Smell - Coffee, chocolate and, more coffee.
Taste - Dark roasted coffee, little hint of bitter grinds and dark chocolate. This brew is all about the coffee.
Feel - Body more like a cold cup of coffee without the richness of a stout. Nicely carbonated with a touch of creamy finish on the tongue.
Overall - This coffee stout is delicious, especially if you dig strong coffee. Well worth seeking out. One of my favorites and I always try to get my hands on some every year. Schlafly's does this style right!

12oz bottle poured into tulip

Pours opaque mahogany color with deep dark hues. Fluffy tuft of tanned head builds up, slowly collapsing into wispy film and rings of patchy lacing.

Smooth roasted coffee beans in the nose with hints of creamy sweetness. Touch of chocolate and cocoa, a hint of vanilla with caramel and dark roasted malts.

Refreshing blast of invigorating coffee beans and roasted tones. The coffee bitterness is super mild in this one, followed by hints of sweetness with cocoa and a dash of vanilla. Roasted dark malts and caramel backbone. Smooth finish with lingering coffee dryness.

Medium body, well carbonated, creamy and smooth on the tongue. Well crafted, drinkable coffee stout without the acrid bitterness that ruins some of similar ilk. Schlafly should get more attention these days - their beers are continually tasty year in and year out.
