Elevensies Espresso Stout
Like me, Elevensies Espresso Stout comes from Fredericton, New Brunswick. It's a 5.5% alcohol number that comes from Maybee Brew Co. This stout is, I assume, brewed with espresso, though unfortunately there is no information about the source of the beans on the 473mL can.
The beer is dark brown with amber highlights, under a creamy head. There is a rich and malty nose that was really quite powerful. The stout proved to be flavourful and hearty, with huge coffee bitterness. Beneath that, there were some molasses notes lurking and a decent malt profile.
This was a pretty decent stout, though the coffee elements really dwarfed the beery ones. It was pretty feisty and tasty, though. I'd definitely like to revisit it.
Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
