7 Mile ‘Quarter to Seven’ Coffee Stout


“An intense coffee stout brewed in collaboration with our friends at Old Quarter Coffee Merchants. This beer is made with direct trade Sumatra Gayo beans, offering a rich and slightly fruity note.”

Glassware: Snifter.

Appearance: Dense black with a short tan head which gradually peels off. It forms a halo which works a lovely cascading lace down the glass.

Aroma: Pow! The coffee hits the olfactories immediately. It provides more of a raw Kopi Luwak kind of quality which displays nutty, chocolate and slightly bitter notes. Behind the coffee is a steadfast fusion of burnt wood, dark chocolate, dark fruits, raw cacao, mild licorice and a rich and intense toffee/caramel accent. Jeez, talk about kicking off in style!

Flavour: Once again the intensity of the coffee is front and centre – really honing in on this raw and nutty complexity which is heavenly. It’s backed up by a subtle hint of vanilla, milk chocolate, dark fruits, woody notes and this overarching earthy dryness…which is most likely from the hops. The finish is roasty, coffee-laden and a tad fruity.

Mouthfeel: Loving the viscosity…it’s hefty and muscly with low-ish Co2. Fairly inoffensive too which is a credit to them. 6.7% ABV is well tempered.

Overall: Let us just say this is a very promising start to this brewery. Laying down roots in far north NSW not far from good ol’ Byron Bay. Look out Stone & Wood some healthy competition has arrived! Potentially¬†?
