X9 865cc Coffee Stout - Stout - Duclaw Brewing (Baltimore, Maryland) - ABV 6.2 %

This brew is the 9th experiment in the Exile Series, hence the name X9. Poured from a bottle this beer pours black with a smallish khaki colored head. Huge roasted coffee aroma and a bit of dark chocolate. The taste follows the nose with a big coffee presence, a bit of cocoa and a bit of vanilla. This brew has the right sweetness for a coffee stout, on a scale of 1 to 10 the sweetness is about a 6, not to sweet but enough to balance out the big roasted coffee flavor. Alcohol is pretty well hidden and considering the bold flavors this beer is actually quite smooth. If your a coffee lover, especially dark coffee, you will enjoy this beer.

RATING of 8.9 out of 10

Mr. Beer Jangle

Welcome! Mr. Beerjangle is a site that is rooted in Craft Beer and everything surrounding it. We not only strive to entertain you, but also to provide information and fun reading to anyone interested in the craft beer world. However this is not just another beer site because not only will we review craft beers but we will also discuss the culture that surrounds it. Everyone involved with this site is not only a big fan of craft beer but we are also fans of music, cinema, art and pretty much anything that kicks ass. Today craft beer drinkers are more of a community. We appreciate the time, energy and detail that brewers put into every brew and craft beer appreciation isn't just a guy thing, many women are choosing a craft beer over a glass of wine and this trend seems to be growing. We will talk about where to find a great brewery or an interesting place where you can get a craft beer and listen to a live band. In other words we don't want to put ourselves into a box, this site will always be evolving and anyone who visits our site will have a chance to voice their opinion and throw in their two cents (as long as your point of view does not conflict with us "experts").....just kidding, seriously feel free voice your opinion. We will also be giving you the 411 on all types of beer related events such as festivals etc...so pour yourself a cold one (or a room temperature one) and join the party.
