Two Roads Brewing Espressway Coffee Stout
What the brewers say
"We mixed a locally roasted blend of beans with a rich oatmeal stout under pressure."
What our panel thought
"Fantastic, intense coffee presence—subtle, almost fruity, without vegetal or ashy character. Somewhat thin; layers of coffee and more coffee balancing an understated stout—pleasant, dry, bitter. Finishes smooth. More sweetness would help round things out."
What our editors thought
"Gorgeous, expressive coffee nose, lightly crossed by toast and caramel in a broad swath. Lean, sparing sip, with resounding roast-coffee notes—a treat for the coffee-obsessed."
