Give Espresso Stout a shot this winter

In 2014, Fuller's developed its own Brewer Street blend of coffee – and we've been itching to brew a beer with those rich, aromatic beans ever since. Espresso Stout is the luxurious, inky-black outcome – and if you're not sure beer and coffee can truly go together, wait until you give it a shot…

A beer that's full of beans

Back when we created Brewer Street coffee, we used the flavour profile of Fuller’s beers as our starting point. Now, we're bringing things full circle by putting our signature blend of Arabica beans back into our beer.

For Espresso Stout, ground Brewer Street coffee is added to the copper alongside a range of malts, before more beans are steeped in the brew during maturation – resulting in a gloriously rich fusion of coffee and beer.

Brewer's notes

Dark and velvety, Espresso Stout offers roasted notes to the nose, with distinct coffee flavour and chocolate highlights on the palate. Five malts and golden naked oats give the beer its full body, while Sovereign hops lend an earthy bitterness to the brew.

Food pairing

Make a mocha of chocolate brownie.

The rich chocolate and coffee notes in Espresso Stout will perfectly complement the dark chocolate of the brownie and the sweet vanilla of the ice cream. There's also enough carbonation to cut through the brownie’s dense texture and refresh the palate.
