Beer Review - Arbor Brewing Espresso Love Stout.

Reviews are piling up!! Gotta get back on the (at least) weekly beer review posting train...

Arbor Brewing Company - Espresso Love Breakfast Stout

Beer Type: American Stout - 7.50% ABV

Appearance: 12oz brown bottle and a fancy coffee/bubble letter logo on the label. Beer poured a pitch black with just a little head that faded quickly with no lacing.        

Smell: Coffee, malt, coffee, chocolate, coffee, prunes, coffee, brown bread.    

First Drink: Coffee up front followed by something a bit metallic tasting. Then comes the toasted malt flavors and the dried fruits.      

Mouthfeel: Smooth and easy going down.      

Last Drink: Finish has a nice warming alcohol to it now.            

Drinkability: A lot going on here for just a basic stout! Not sure if I would down this first thing in the morning... but I might!!            

Notes: Really enjoy the dark chocolate and fruit flavors and how the pair with the big coffee taste in this beer.        

Verdict: 4 out of 5. Good stout, good coffee beer, local to me, and made by good people.
