Pours into my glass a deep charcoal black with a two finger head of bubbly dark tan foam that fizzes and slowly falls after the pour. Aromas kick off with an intoxicating blend of dark roasted malt, creaminess and vibrant brewed coffee. Chocolate notes are there but the coffee really shines through.

First sip brings big dark roasted malts cavorting with a bevy of chocolate and fresh brewed coffee flavors that intertwine to create a wonderful flavor profile. Mellow creamy sweetness as it goes down along with a somewhat dry finish. Bitterness is well placed. A treat for any coffee beer lover for sure.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth with good carbonation. Not overly heavy at all, making this one almost too easy to drink. Rich, roasty, coffee and cream goodness in a glass. Overall, a great coffee stout that I'm glad they bottled and would love to have easier access to. Very glad I had a friend grab a sixer for me.

12oz bottle.

Pours like a stout. Inky black topped with a healthy head of tan bubbles. Head reappears with vigorous swirling. Minimal lacing.

The nose is all coffee. Beautiful, roasty, toasty coffee. Hints of bitter cocoa underneath more coffee. Ground coffee, coffee beans, fresh brewed coffee. Did I mention it smells of coffee?

For an IS, the mouthfeel is amazingly light. The coffee flavor comes through, easily dominating the palate. Subtle malty flavors underscore the coffee. Mildly astringent, with a pleasantly bitter (coffee) finish.

64oz Growler

I got this growler earlier today in a trade with jw347, thanks again Johnathan! Cuppa Joe fills this breakfast stout pint glass wit ha liquid as black as a moonless night. Even when directly backlit there's not a hint of light flowing through this black beauty. The mocha head rose to a finger in height on the pour and became incredibly creamy while leaving chunky spire lacing down the glass. This is a damn fine looking brew.

The nose is rich with coffee delight. French roast coffee with cream and sugar is what dominates this brew. There's a slight charred maltiness and a drizzle of caramel but this beer is all about dark roasted beans. I actually wouldn't be able to tell the difference between this being a beer or coffee if blindfolded which is fine with me, I thoroughly enjoy my coffee dominated stouts.

The coffee stands out even more on the tongue than in the aroma, if you can believe that. French roast dominates the palate while the cream and sugar fall back and become accompaniments instead of standouts. The coffee borders on charred bitterness but doesn't quite make it there. The mild bitterness on the finish is perfectly done and the swallow leaves behind some rich caramel.

The body is on the heavy side of medium with an active enough carbonation to add some frothiness on the back of the tongue. This stout leaves behind a moderate coffee bitterness on the back of the throat. The body has a velvety quality that slithers along the tongue, I know that doesn't sound very good but it is.

The drinkability is super high when taking the intense coffee into consideration. I made my way through two pints very quickly.

I've thoroughly enjoyed everything I've had the opportunity to drink with the name Short's written on it. Cuppa Joe is no different and one of the better coffee stouts I have ever had. Thanks for the treat Johnathan!
