St John Coffee Stout

Anyone have this? Wife brought back a few bottles from St John USVI today and I laughed when I read it's made in Maine

9% looks pretty good. They say it's distributed in New England but I've never seen it.

It is decent. Had it down there last summer. Not really a summer beer though. Real question is why didn't you go too? Place is ridiculous.

My eyes is goin' crazy!

Decent beer but not outstanding. Nice balance of flavors. Drinkable for a big beer. Would like more viscosity though and longer lasting depth of flavor.

Worth a try but I don't know how far I'd go to get it.

Yes, one of the hallmarks of a great beer.

Not sure who brews it, their website mentioned they used Shipyard in the past.

Definitely isn't cistern or desalination water from the island. That would be nasty.
