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.

Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass.
A - Nearly opaque black in color. Some red tinges when held up to the light. 1 finger tan head that dissipates very quickly.
S - Mostly cold espresso.
T - Predominant flavor of cold espresso. Some chocolate and darkl roasted malt. Finishes very clean.
M - Light and surprisingly crisp. Carbonation is just right.
D - This is the epitome of drinkable. Light and refreshing with excellent coffee flavor. This one of my favorite session beers. At @ $7.50 six pack it's very affordable.

Dark black with a thin tan head; a massive blast of coffee beans on the nose, a comparison to walking into a crowded coffee shop where everyone is drinking dark roasted java. Ok. Coffee beans noted up front; espresso, burnt malts, pretty creamy and just a bit dry. A bit of a watery palate; yet there is a full mouthfeel with the feeling of fresh brewed java on the tongue. Coffee dominated all the way; I need to know right now – You’re in or You’re out? I’m in. The folks at Schlafly have once again delivered!

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!

To start off, I'm not a coffee drinker, so if I was a coffee drinker, I would imagine this beer would have scored even better.

Pours a thick creamy head. Dark brown in color, looks like a man's beer.

Smells like it should...the coffee smell is robust, with a bit of malt in the background.

As you would expect, the mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. The taste of the coffee isn't overwhelming like in the nose.

This beer provides a very attractive lacing. The finish is as smooth as they come. The bitter hops and bitter coffee seem to act to offset one another, for a creamy, almost sweet finish.

Schlafly is becoming my favorite brewer. This is my 5th or 6th variety, and I'm still haven't had one that wasn't exceptional.
