Long Trail Coffee Stout

The number of morons on the internet that try to send crap through to my simple blog is mind numbing. As the popularity of the blog (yeah, almost no one reads it) has grown, the number of attempts to put shit onto the end of each blog has risen. I barely, if every, have good comments and I am to the point now where it would probably just get trashed. The bad ones are numerous and I don’t even care to check to see if good are mixed with the bad. Maybe why I don’t get many good. Needless to say it has soured me a bit and I am almost to the point where I want to take that ability off of the entries going forward. I guess it depends on my mood.

On to something that matter: American craft beer number 354.

Coffee Stout – Brewmaster Series by Long Trail Brewing Company is an American Imperial Stout infused with coffee. This is a two year old bottle so a lot of the coffee has seen better days, instead the base stout comes through. Roasted and sweet chocolate make up this stout in the nose and mouth, combining for a pleasant experience even for a beer missing a bit of one component.

Since Coffee Stout is a seasonal, I could really go for a fresh bottle this year to see how that coffee is balanced and the stout holds up. Enjoy!

Aroma: 8 (25%), Taste: 7 (25%), Look: 10 (15%), Drinkability: 9 (35%), Overall: 8.4

Useless Fact: Type O is the most common blood type in the world. Type AB is the rarest. There is also a subype called A-H, but to date only three people in the world are known to have it.
