This beer is one that I’ve always been interested in trying since it’s made with coffee that the brewery roasts themselves. Let’s see how it was.
Style: Oatmeal Stout
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “It’s so great that you like coffee. I just love that about you. Speaking of which, you’re holding an oatmeal coffee stout positively redolent with coffee aroma and flavor. It kind of tastes like a chocolate-covered espresso bean, only drier and more like beer. Nifty fact: we’re one of the only breweries in the world to roast our own coffee, which allows us to be extremely persnickety about which beans we buy and how we roast them. Taste the persnicketiness!”
Random: This beer comes in at 40 IBUs and uses 75% Ethiopian coffee and 25% Sumatran coffee.
This beer poured with a generous, three finger, thick, tan head. It dissipated at a moderate pack and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a dark brown that was almost black. There wasn’t much carbonation visible due to the color. The nose was filled with roasted grains, some lactose and milk chocolate. There was also a note of coffee. The taste was a bit sweet up front with lactose and chocolate. It had some maple syrup and then transitioned into coffee and roasted malt. The body was on the thicker side with medium carbonation. It had a lengthy and sweet finish with chocolate. A pounder can was $3.25, which came to $.20 per ounce. I thought this beer was good, I just wish the coffee was more prevalent.
