Making a java or coffee stout

Recommended Posts

The real winner, as far as I’m concerned, at a recent beer tasting, was Java Stout by Santa Fe Brewing. Awesome beer and relatively high ABV. How can I make something as coffee-good?  I added cold deep dark coffee to Double Black Diamond Stout: really good, but a little light on the java. Maybe I was too timid. BTW, this beer has aged 6 months and is SO good. I am learning that patience has great tasting rewards!

I use espresso-ground coffee and cold-steep it overnight.  I add one shot to each bottle at bottling.  To me the espresso grind gives a better coffee flavor.

Thanks for the advice!  I must have added a bit more coffee at bottling to a 740ml bottle I opened a few nights back. SO good!
