Beers I Have Known: Schlafly Coffee Stout

This series of posts is dedicated to the many, many six packs, pony kegs and pints that have sauntered into my life at one point or another.

I like beer. That should be clear by now. If there’s a beverage that I prefer, it’s coffee. It stands to reason, then, that beers that incorporate coffee into their flavor profile would make me giddy as a barfly with an unlimited tab that never requires payment. An approach to beer once put forward as a sitcom gimmick is now common enough that an article ranking a couple dozen of the best is far from comprehensive. There’s nothing indiscriminate about my affection, though. I don’t want it to simply be a fizzy coffee. Every sip should deliver the best of both blessed potables. When I find one that strikes the balance just right, it’s worth cherishing. The coffee stout from Schlafly does exactly that, hitting the tongue with the sharp splendor of a great beer and finishing with a rich cascade of coffee goodness. It’s one of those beers worth coveting. And once a few bottles are in hand, they’re worth squirreling away until the moment is exactly right to pop off a cap and get down to the business of working on a buzzy buzz.
