Lost Abbey Serpent Stout or Expresso Yeti yum yum. Breakfast Stout is always a favorite also.
Lots of good ones mentioned above; I dunno if you're into trading, but if so, try to snag a Schlafly Coffee Stout 6er (only around 8 bucks a six pack, and damn delicious espresso flavors), and (one I didn't see above, unless I missed it) a 4pk of 16oz cans from Great River Brewery, their 'Redband Stout'. It's like creamy, thick, iced coffee. Probably the most coffee-forward beer I've ever had. Schlafly is distributed througout IL/MO and a few other states; Great River brews are almost exclusively in IL and IA I believe.
KBS, Peche Mortel, Speedway Stout
Schlafly's Coffee Stout is excellent. Don't know if you can get it Western PA. A favorite stout of mine with a lot of coffee taste is Stockyard Oatmeal Stout at Trader Joe's.
I have had one delicious sip of Williamsburg Aleworks Cafe Royale and I was sold. To me, better than FBS. But I don't find it a light beer like OP originally asked all those months ago. Wake n Bake isn't too heavy and so damn good.
this, and as stated above, the yeti are both very good and easy to find out here in CA
Depending on where you are in west PA, troegs javahead, southern tier as others have said..almost all big stouts have some coffee. Weyerbacher Old Heathen
Surley Coffee Bender. Yup.
12 run inning vs. the Cubs tonight!
7 doubles in one inning!
I'd you get Highland Brewing in your area, pick up a Black Mocha Stout. Best coffee flavor in a beer that doesn't actually use coffee.
to øl mochaccino messiah
i agree kujo
didnt look but terrapin wake n bake must be on here
drink any of the 3 above before you spend your money on one of the mikkeller coffee ones... beer geak breakfast or weasel. theyre good however these are better
Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout and Ballast Point's Victory at Sea for the win.
I'm just going to continue to parrot what a bunch of people are saying here, and given what I know we can get in PA:
Founders Breakfast Stout
Bells Java Stout
Dark Horse Perkulator
Flying Dog Kujo
Atwater Vanilla Java Porter (Well, I like it)
Ballast Point Victory At Sea (which I honestly have not seen here in a year and a half in Pittsburgh but who knows)
Full Pint Perc E Bust
Great Divide Espresso Yeti
I wish we got Schlafly's here, I've heard so much about their Coffee Stout
Founders Breakfast Stout and Mikkeller Kopi IPA
Williamsburg Alewerks Cafe Royal is one of the best and Nectar Black Xantus is very good. Along with WnB, CCB Cubano, and Victory at Sea.
As far as rarities, Penultimate Push and Final Push Marshall Zhukov were off the charts good.
Terrapin Wake N Bake
Great Divide Espresso Oak Aged Yeti
Founder's Breakfast Stout
Founder's Frangelic Mountain Brown
In no particular order.
If you're looking for something very balanced, I'd say Kujo all the way. 8.9% and there is no tasting the alcohol in that big boy.
For a big coffee whopper: Black Damnation II Mocha Bomb is still my favorite coffee stout. Definitely a sipper at 12%.
Péché Mortel is also stupidly delicious.
With Stout season approaching, I went back to Founders Breakfast Stout, which I still love. This year it seems to me more coffee, almost esspresso in taste, which I love. Next I tried Flash Point Double Stout. Now that was the opposite of Founders. Flash Point was loaded with rich deep chocolate that was so perfectly balanced.
So, now I have my coffee Stout (Founders) and my Chocolate stout (Flash Point) But I know the season is still early
coffee bender for sure worth the trade
I have a local, Santa Fe Brewing, Imperial Java Stout at 8%. Delicious
Vietnamese Coffee Speedway, Victory at Sea, FBS, Coronado Blue Bridge Coffee Stout, Lagunitas
Founders Breakfast Stout is my choice for sure
I'm a big fan of many mentioned in this thread, but since I just picked up a six-pack of Highland's Thunderstruck Coffee Porter I'll echo that one. Really great coffee flavor.
if your tired of stouts try dark horse perkulator. coffee doppleback.
If your in the Boston area or know someone in the area Brash Brewing just released Texas Exile. Fucking Delicious.
A couple of other people have mentioned it, but Troegs Java Head might be just what the Dr. ordered as far as what you're looking for. It's not as big of a beer as the ST, Founders, and Terrapin beers that have been mention, and it's also available year round in western PA.
Speedway Stout FTW!
Founder's Breakfast Stout
Surly - Coffee Bender
Dark Horse Perkulator
Lift Bridge - Irish Coffee Stout
Founders Breakfast Stout is very tasty, however, I like the Santa Fe Brewing Imperial Java Stout even more. The problem is that I now live in Atlanta and for now it's sold in NM and maybe in Southern Co., West Texas, I only get to enjoy it when I go back to ABQ. I do pack a six in my checked luggage when I return to ATL so that helps for a week or so. That all said, I'm going to go look for some of the labels y'all have posted. Have a great evening!
Amazing beer. And severely underrated.
The Devil Made Me Do It Coffee Imperial Porter
Ballast Point Victory at Sea
Keegan Joe Mama's Milk, please!!
I tend to like the variations of speedway stout that vietnamese was amazing
Of course like the FBS and Troegs java head
Nobody seem to mention Black Xantus which is solid brew in itself
just got that Long Trail brewmaster series cant wait to try
Espresso Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout by Great Divide Brewing Company. The taste has stuck with me for the past 2 years when I first tried on tap at my favorite local bar. Its a strong beer with a heavy espresso flavor.
Ballast Point Victory at Sea & Williamsburg Alewerks Cafe Royale are good options.
Black and brew is a good entry level coffee but there are much better options out there.
Berkshire Coffeehouse Porter
Harpoon's new 100 Barrel Series (Trifungo I think its called)
Wollavers Coffee Porter
