Narragansett Autocrat Coffee Milk Stout


Today I'm checking out Narragansett Autocrat Coffee Milk Stout. Made on Honor. Sold on Merit. Those expressions are the epitome of this collaboration beer between two century-old New England craft companies: Autocrat Coffee and Narragansett. My pounder can tells me a little more about about their histories that you can read below. The front shows a steaming hot cup of joe! 5.3% alcohol.

Excellent coffee aroma, like quality coffee, not the crap I drink three cups of every morning. With the coffee, you also get a light roast, light chocolate, and milky sweetness. Flavors are very much coffee-forward, full of roast to the edge of burnt. And despite that, there is a nice creamy texture. Milk chocolate flavors are present, though no sweetness. In fact, this beer leans quite a bit on the bitter end.

The finish is dry and long lasting, and the place you'll feel some lingering smokiness the most. Medium body. Nice beer. I liked it. And I like the connection of the two businesses.
