Beer Review 168 // A stout with Coffee by Bellwoods Brewery


I feel like Wednesdays are coming around quicker and quicker! This week I headed back to a classic Toronto Brewery and enjoyed another can of Bellwoods beer. A stout with coffee has been a favourite series of mine this year. As Bellwoods explores the different effects different coffee has on the similarly brewed stout. For this one, they used Colombia Huila.

As I pour the 5.5% brew you can't help but notice the pitch-black stout freely splashing into the glass. This beer is lively and soon a rather large head forms. Considering how lively the head was I was impressed to see hang around and the retention is pretty impressive. Fruity, floral notes greeted me on the first stiff. This was soon followed by a bold roasty coffee note. Damn do I love the smell of coffee. The is as expected and greatly enjoyed. You get roasted, almost burnt malts, a delicious floral coffee hit that covers the tongue and a gentle fresh cup of coffee bitterness in the finish.

This is a very enjoyable can of coffee. I highly recommend this or any others from this series. I am learning a lot about how coffee can affect the brew, it's all rather educational!
