    Newport Storm '13 - HUGE coffee flavor. Rated an 85 on here, but I think it would be higher for those who really like coffee beers.

    Lagunitas Bourbon Barrel-Aged Cappuccino Stout, as tasted at Festival of Dark Arts in Astoria, OR, this past weekend. After that, Elysian "Splitshot".

    Just today tried the Perennial Sump Coffee Stout at the release party. Imperial Stout with Colombian Los Pinos coffee added. Super tasty. Really complex for just being stout+coffee!

    Just had the Espresso Porter at Pegs in Florida...pretty solid... and super fresh coffee. Most coffee flavor/aroma ive had in a sub 5% brew.

    Terrapin coffee oatmeal stout (formerly wake n' bake?) has the best, most authentic coffee flavor but I think bcbcs is the best I've had overall.

    I just started getting into coffee stouts again, loved the big bad baptist, but i think they use folgers, or it just tastes like it. I also agree that bcbcs is pretty amazing. My new go to is elysian split shot, made with stump town coffee, really good and 7.99 a 6 pack is nice.

    Up all night porter? They don't make a coffee stout that I'm aware of. Assuming you're referring to Triple C brewing in Charlotte NC.

    Speedway is my favorite go-to, but one of the best ones I can remember was Drake's Blue Bottle. Yum.

    A lot of great beers already mentioned but I haven't seen Berkshire Brewing's Coffeehouse Porter. Very nice beer that I happen to be sipping on right now...

    Cascade Oblique Coffee Blonde
    Carton Regular Coffee

    Both of those are the most uniquely successful coffee beers I've ever had. The Carton one in particular, a 12% coffee cream ale, is stunning.

    I agree with the Carton Regular Coffee. Not crazy over cream ales but that one was excellent.

    Treehouse's new coffee stout "percolation" not a coffee beer guy normally but this one really had that perfect balance of accentuating the natural coffee flavors in an American stout.

    No, Naples Beach Brewery had a stout called Triple C on tap during a brewery tour. It stands for coconut, creme and coffee.

    maybe I taste more coffee in it than others (or it's not coffee-forward enough) since I don't think I've seen it mentioned, but DH Pt5...and then Epic Big Bad Baptist

    Central Waters Brewhouse is great on tap, out of the bottle it doesn't really do much for me.

    I recently had Bourbon County Coffee, Wake N Bake and Cinnamon Roll'd Wake N Bake, all excellent beers, but my favorite is Percolation by Tree House Brewing. Wish I could get more...

    Well besides the obvious top coffee beers. Just finished a 750ml of sump coffee stout. Really coffee forward. Smell and taste are on point

    Just opened an LSD blueprint tonight.

    Preferred it over Sump which I opened last night. One of my favorite non barrel aged coffee stouts, if not at the top.e
