Bomber into traditional English stout glass. Perfect color, decent head and left some decorative lace. Aroma was a sweet, espresso. Taste was perfectly balanced. Chocolate and coffee notes. Bitterness on the back end but not overpowering. Medium+ viscosity. Wonderful aftertaste. This is one rock solid, sweet stout! Iím sure if I was an espresso drinker, I would appreciate it even further. Good stuff!

From 12oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a black color with a tan head. Nose is big coffee, chocolate, roasted malt. Taste is mostly sweet, bits of bitterness. Finishes hold and heavy, phenomenal beer .

Bottle. Pours a near black color with moderate light tan head on it that quickly disappears. Nose is roasty with a very intense amount of coffee coming off it, and just a hint of some dairy underneath. Taste has a lot of coffee in there, but has a sweetness underneath, like itís a subtle latte. Very pleasant drink.

I love beer. I love coffee. Elysian is the first brewery to combine them perfectly.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 On tap at Elysian in Seattle. Pours black. Smells of strong coffee amd chocolate. Beautiful mocha flavor. Medium mouthfeel, and goes down easy. One of the best I have had of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2014 new favorite beer. smells like a chips cup of joe. this is awesome. tastes like a chocolate covered coffee bean. wonderful mouthfeel. it fizzles on the back of the tongue and provides a thick texture. borderline frothy.
