Michigan, United States

Style: Milk / Sweet Stout

Notes / Commercial Description:
"A brew uniquely different from most coffee stouts, we cram Higher Grounds roasted fair trade espresso beans into every facet of the brewing process. Prominent aromatics of malt, espresso, and cocoa are abundant and create a flavor robust with big malt characters fused with cream and coffee. The perfect morning night capper."

This beer was surprisingly good! Didn't know what to expect as Shorts is often hit or miss for me. This beer was one of the best offerings I've had from them. Thanks for the bottle Mike!

12oz bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a 1/2 inch of dark brown head. Some lacing. Nice aroma of espresso, cocoa, and roasted malts with a hint of sweet caramel. The taste is coffee with cream, cocoa nibs and some roasted notes. Some espresso and bitter dark chocolate at the end. Roasted coffee finish. Mouthfeel is slightly heavy and thick. A Founders Breakfast Stout-esk beer. Overall, well made coffee Sout.

Circling back for a review nov 2016. Bottle to snifter. Deep black, tan head. Roasted coffee and nutty deep malts on thi one. Very smooth with milk sugars. ABV very well hidden but it peeks in at the very end. Overall an excellent brew. One to snag when it rotates into season
