3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 0.65l bottle @ RBNG 2014. Near black in the glass, or at least really deep and brown. Only a little sidesticking brown top. The nose has cigarettes, roasted malts, a fair amount of coffee and some dusty roasted malts. Light gliding in the mouth and it has a soft small carbonation level. Loaded with old coffee in the taste . Slightly sun damaged chocolate with cocoa powder and dark roasted malts that lingers. Not bad actually but it tastes somewhat old. 15.02.2014

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wonderful coffee aromas and flavors -- roast, chicory, dark chocolate, and a lightness on the palate that retains the fruit of the hop.

Sweet cold coffee, light brown color. Very simple sweet coffee stout. Not that impressive

15.02.2014. 0,75l Bottle. RBNG-14. Black colour with tan head. Body is kind of weaker than expected from the colour. Not as rich as ecpected either. But afterall its pretty rich with dark malts and soft bitter aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Melrose Liquor: So I’ve had this fresh on tap when it was first released back in 2011 at Hamilton’s during SDBW but lost the rating and now rating it again from the bottle. Pours a dark black liquid with slight brown transparency while a thin formation of head quickly flat lines. Aroma is robust as well as being mouthwatering pleasant with scents of rich roasty ground coffee bean and roast malts. the drink is toned down to compared to the aroma, but a smooth hint of coffee is noticeable and makes this not such a boring stout. Nothing special really but for $4.49 a bomber that what’s up.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle pours a translucent dark brown with ruby edges and a thick, foamy off white head. Nose is interesting, some bread crust, some cold pressed coffee, a little condensed milk, some chocolate, a little raw parsnip, some almond. Flavor is better, coffee is more prevalent than the nose but far from overwhelming, a little cola, almost a little birch, malt, some very mild chocolate, a hint of cinnamon, some almond. Clean finish. Very drinkable. Coffee is really just a complimenting flavor.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured into a Belgian snifter. Pours black with dark brown hues, almost a finger of light tan head. Decent lacing. Aromas of coffee, roast, light caramel and vanilla. Tasting notes of roast, slightly burnt coffee, coffee grounds, dark chocolate, a little caramel and vanilla. Medium-light body with a mostly dry finish. Pretty nice lower ABV coffee stout.
