Schlafly Beer/The Saint Louis Brewery Coffee Stout

What the brewers say

“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.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Big coffee aroma up front. Very dark roast character with dried cherries and figs. Smells like an iced coffee. Some dark chocolate comes through.”

Flavor: “Strong coffee earthiness with chocolate notes in the background. The malt provides nice roast notes and sweetness. A touch of pipe tobacco sweetness and light dried cherry toward the end that grows as it warms. Finishes dry.”

Overall: “If you’re a coffee person, you’ll like this beer. The coffee is good, but the beer could use a bit more balance of beer flavors against it. More body and malt complexity would support the coffee. Would love some more stout character.”
