4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Has this at the blue dog.
Appears deep dark brown with a smallish tan head but well maintained throughout. There is some lacing here and there. By tilting the glass this way and that I was able to rustle up some more foamy head and also to gage the attenuation which appears to be well carbonated.
The aroma is as one might expect: rich malts highly roasted, bittersweet chocolates and black coffee. The coffee aroma is the most pronouned, but aroma is also well balanced.
Taste is again what you might expect, highly roasted malts almost to the put of being burnt, rich bittersweet chocolate and coffee, rich black coffee. Hints of nuts and molasses too can be tasted.
A thick bodied beer here with a hint of creaminess before turning slightly dry. Towards the end soft alcohol warming is present.

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.

Bomber pours a dark brown/black with a medium khaki head. Aroma reminds me of chocolate chip cookie dough, with mild molasses. Taste of upfront roasted coffee, into smooth chocolate. Pretty nice.

Bottle. The pour is dark. The aroma isn't big coffee, more malt. The taste is actually a mix of coffee and toffee. Big coffee in the aftertaste.

1.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Dark black poor small tan head with nice lacing. Rich sweet chocolates with a touch of cocoa bitterness in the finish. A good hit of coffee well roasted. Aroma is a bit lighter than the flavor and is slightly surprising. Some almost walnut like characters when it opens up. Very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: black body with dark brown edges & a khaki layer of foam that gets reduced to a collar pretty quickly. Aroma has notes of burnt coffee beans, mild char, light oil, & a solid amount of roasted malts. Taste is also full of coffee, though not as roasty or charred as the aroma may indicate. Light creamy aspect with hints of toffee covered raisins. Finish has a mildly sharp astringency with a lingering finish of coffee. Good stuff, but it doesn’t quite reach the upper echelon of coffee beers.

Almost opaque, very dark brown, thin beige head. Freshly roasted coffee beans, a little vanilla, chocolate syrup, and toast. A bit sweet, but creamy and smooth. Soft carbonation and lingering black coffee in the finish. Almost no alcohol presence.

Bomber to snifter. Bitter coffee aroma. Mild sweetness. Loads of coffee flavor. Maybe a little chocolate. Smooth carbonation. Coffee in beer. Yup.
