Southern Tier Mokah and Javah are both very tasty
Not sure if it's been mentioned already, but I had the opportunity to try Surly Coffee Bender from a friend. Definitely recommend this if you want to try something other than a coffee stout.
Allagash James Bean (in my dreams). This beer is still a long way off from hitting the streets, but I am fascinated by it. Back to reality: I love FBS and Hill Farmstead's Earl and Twilight of the Idols.
Kane Morning Bell. Kane's a New Jersey brewery that teamed up with a New Jersey coffee roaster Rook Coffee Roasters to combine dark roasted Sumatra with a 9.2% ABV imperial milk porter. Growlers only.
Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout, and Ballast Point Victory at Sea, Peche Mortel, and founders BS,
Big Bad Baptist.
Most of everything mentioned is pretty damn tasty. I am surprised there is no love for New Blegium - Lips Of Faith - Imperial Coffee Chocolate Stout.
I can now vouch for this beer as well, I just had some a little while ago and it's very good. Also, the Terrapin Wake n' Bake is very good, although I'm sure that has already been mentioned somewhere.
I've got a ton of love for that. That shit is tasty
Left hand Java Lava
Read through all the posts. Some awesome beers here, and some I will have to seek out as I love coffee.
Here's one that has yet to be mentioned. It is freaking awesome--worth tracking down.
Well, after 4 pages a lot of great beers have been mentioned. I would add, although they are not necessarily available in your area, Valdez from Pisgah and Cafe Silk Porter from Hoppin Frog. Both are great beers.
I've only had Valdez once, on tap, while spending time in Asheville, and I loved it.
HF Cafe Silk Porter I have had a few of, and It has a great black coffee taste. An excellent brew.
I finally drank the Midnight Sun Brewtality that was sitting in my fridge for probably too long, but it was definitely delicious (and made me wish I'd picked up more bottles...)
Wake-n-bake and Victory at sea
I just tried this earlier this week. Really good stuff!
I was really impressed with Bell's Java Stout.
Definitely an underrated beer. Similar to Great River Redband Stout. Also stellar.
I will also second Big Hugs. This years' version from Half Acre is phenominal--had it on tap at their new taproom last night.
Kona Brewing Company Pipeline Porter, made with 100% Hawaiian Kona coffee. Incredible rich flavor and fantastic lingering hints of coffee and chocolate.
I'm going to nominate two: best coffee flavor and best stout base.
For coffee flavor, I'm going with WnB. I describe it to people as a cup of fresh brewed coffee poured into your beer.
Best stout base for me is bcbcs.
FBS, Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout, New Belguim Lips of Faith Chocolate Coffee stout... I'm not sure if i actually got the name of the New Belgium one right lol
Austin Beer Works Sputnik (Russian Imperal Coffee Oatmeal Stout)
This and Victory at Sea.
Had some Sixpoint 3 beans on tap at Blind Tiger on Wednesday. VERY tasty!
Harpoon's 100 barrel series coffee porter, best coffee beer I have ever had, if you want that pure coffee taste.
Never had that one but I am sure its good...LH knows how to make a nice stout and porter. Their Week Sauce Coffee Porter was quite enjoyable last year as well too.
Dark Horse Perkulator Coffee Dopplebock. Fantastic. Very nice change to have a coffee brew that is NOT a stout. One of my new favorites.
Another fan of Founders Breakfast Stout.
Your 1st response
pretty much nailed it.
BCBCS...best coffee stout I've ever tasted.
We're talking lately, not ever right? Just tried Southern Tier's Jahva Imperial Coffee Stout for the 1st time last week and was more than impressed. Cheers!
Bourbon County Coffee of course! Peche Mortel is also a favorite of mine. Has such a high quality coffee taste.
I think age plays a big part in how much the actual coffee comes through
For what I have had lately...Big Bad Baptist.
Listen to the others above and get yourself a Victory at Sea... Amazing
bourbon county coffee cant beat it best coffee beer ever
Hoppin' Frog Cafe Silk Porter
Fat Heads Bean Me Up Koffee Stout (not available in bottles yet)
Greenbush's Mr. Hyde is extremely good.
Wake and bake
