3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bottle.
Aroma is coffee forward with a nice coffee character but not over the top. Some medium chocolate notes with some light roast and a faint fruitiness. Some light caramel notes.
Pours dark brown, almost black with a medium sized, dark tan head that recedes quickly to the edges where it lingers for a bit. Medium light lacing and small legs.
Flavor is moderately sweet with some nice chocolate and light dark caramel notes. Some moderate coffee notes that add a light nuttiness. Some light roast notes as well. Medium bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium to medium full bodied with a bit of stickiness in the finish and medium carbonation. Low, but present astringency with low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a pretty nice smaller coffee beer. Nice chocolate and coffee notes with good complexity and a lighter body. Pretty tasty lingering coffee notes.

So happy to see this stout back. Medium dark black body. Good frothy 1/2 inch head. Tons of coffee aroma. Rich full body stout with a good amount of coffee taste. One of my favorite coffee stouts.

"courtesy pfoxyjohn...a light-medium bodied slightly dry stout. the coffee went from subtle at 49 degrees to prominent after 10 minutes. roasted malt, bittersweet coffee. nice...almost a standout. got to revisit - all about the coffee, especially the aroma. still quite nice and still a 4 (maybe higher if i have one for breakfast!)"

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Black with a foamy light brown head. Intense nutty light roasted coffee, cocoa powder, powdered sugar and malt powder. Has a dry sweetness of cocoa powder followed by the bitterness of coffee. Heavier syrupy feel with minimal carbonation.

Incredible stout from central waters. Nice flavor of coffee and chocolate. The smell of chocolate hits the nose. Easy to drink and had at home.
