Maker: Short’s, Elk Rapids, Michigan, USA
Style: Coffee Cream Stout (made with FTO coffee from Higher Grounds roasters, Traverse City, Michigan).
Purchased for $12/6 pack
Appearance: Dark coffee with a short-lived lacy head.
Nose: Fresh ground coffee, sour yeast, cocoa.
Palate: Coffee with extra cream, and a little bit of funk.
Finish: Bitter and caffeinated like your ex but with a sweetness he or she lacks.
Parting words: This is one of my favorite styles from one of my favorite Michigan breweries, so buying it was an easy decision to make. I was not disappointed. The coffee, stout and cream elements blend together seamlessly and the result is a great after-dinner (or as-dinner) stout. Doesn’t do too bad with food either, at least with (electric) grilled pork chops. It’s pricy but worth it. Cup A Joe is recommended.
