Great River Coffee Stout

Great River Coffee Stout

Tasted non blind on October 26, 2012.  Served from 16oz/Pint sized can.  6.0% ABV.  36 IBUs. This milk stout is a cold pressed coffee infused stout.

Dark brown, almost black color in the glass, opaque looking with a decent, fairly retentive head. Nose of coffee, chocolate and malt balls. Flavors of light coffee notes, a bit of bitter dark chocolate and touch of chocolate covered cherries on the slightly clipped finish. Fairly clean with a decent weight up front on the palate but it disapates fairly rapidly. I like the over nose and flavor profile of this stout but it gets docked just a hair for the finish. Good. Let’s call this one three out of five stars.
