In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer, which is Chocolade Koffie Stout, from Oddside Ales. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on this Michigan craft brewery, you their history. If you have not read those posts, please, do so to get to know Oddside Ales. Let us get into this stout.
It has a jet black color with a tan to light brown color head. The aroma had a heavy coffee notes. The taste profile of this full body beer is a chocolate to heavy coffee notes with a dry coffee bean aftertaste. It is kind of drinkable to a sipping beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.oddsideales.com):
If you’re a fan of chocolate stouts this is the one to try! A great mixture of thick, sweet, dark chocolate fudge, and light espresso bean undertones will immediately appeal to your senses. Your taste buds will dance when the creamy stout takes flight. 6%ABV
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Ending, I am a pretty big fan of this brewery and I will try anything new or beers I have not had yet from this brewery. I am a pretty big fan of stouts, porters, pale ales, and India Pale Ales. I do not like my coffee but only if it is in my beer. I know this craft brewery knows how to use their coffee bean. They shown me that in Bean Flicker Ale. To me, there is something a little off in this brew. I do not know if it is the stout or the coffee bean is over the stop. I am starting to think that I might have picked up an old beer. The problem is there is no code dates on their bottles. I recommend this beer but I hope you get a better bottle. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
