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.

Small but proud head. Nose is pretty much pure coffee. Coffee isn't quite as strong on the palate but still very nice with a ton of flavor for a beer at 7% (which isn't very noticeable). Feel is solid as well for a lighter beer (when the hell did 7% becomes light? I suppose drinking this immediately following a glass of No Rules might be to blame, at least tonight). I don't love this beer quite as much as that last time I had it but it's still one of the best non-BB coffee stouts I've had.
