Fat Head's Bean Me Up Koffee Stout

Here is what the Brewer says:
Velvety Cream Stout highlighted by chocolate malt and roasted barley. This silky stout is finished with Caribou Coffee’s Lacuna Blend dark roast beans.
6.5% ABV  30IBU

My Thoughts:  This beer pours black with a tan foamy head.  The smell is pure roasted coffee, with very subtle hints of dark chocolate, and lightly roasted malt .  The taste follows the nose straight into the coffee flavor and is accompanied mid-drink by dark roasted malt and barley with a hint of bitterness. The mouthfeel of this was good, it finishes clean with some coffee bitterness.  The body is not as thick as it looks, I'd call it medium with a little higher than medium carbonation.   The drinkability will vary based on how much you love coffee.  Personally I could drink this all day because I love coffee. This beer is not overly complex in its flavor.  I felt it was a well balanced and very flavorful coffee stout.

Serving Type: Fresh on Draft and at home from Growler

My Rating: Overall 92.25/100
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | drink: 4.5
