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.

Good, not great. Although aromatic, it was not nearly as flavorful or complex (not a surprise) when compared with a year-old Founder's Breakfast Stout and a Bell's Java Stout (David and I over a year ago during our 'lark in the park').

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.
