Bomber. Pours dark brown with a small off white head. Aroma of roasted malt and of course coffee. Flavour is the same with big coffee taste.

Can. Pours a near black color with a smallish off white head on it. Nose is very roasty with some great dark roasted coffee elements to it. Taste is slightly bitter and very roasty. Smooth like an iced coffee. Really tasty.

On tap at the brewpub - Pours dark brown with a beige head. The aroma has smooth roast, lots of chocolate and vanilla. It has a medium smooth body with soft carbonation. The flavor has the chocolate from the aroma along with dark caramel and coffee. The finish brings in some creamy vanilla. Ultra smooth and full flavored. Solid stout.

SlovakSniper (3037) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
La tunique brune est fière de sa tête plutôt solide. Une dentelle est éparpillée sur mon verre. Au nez, des parfums forts de café frais moulu se font bousculer par malts rôtis. Une pointe de chocolat se fait aussi sentir. Au goût, le café est fort et les malts en retrait. Tout de même, un chocolat et un caramel se pointent sur le bout de ma langue. En bouche, le corps moyen-mince est bien heureux. L’effervescence est légèrement montée. La texture demeure crémeuse. En finale, tout est bien amer de café équitable avec une petite pointe poivrée. Facile à boire. Bon stout au café.

Draught @ Hopworks, Portland, OR

Smooth, roasty and malty stout with some licorice, coffee with some spicy notes. Okay.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1656) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle from Sugaya, shared at Takatsuki Jazz Street. Served in a mini-half-pint glass. It’s a cola brown pour with a thick tan head that dissipates leaving a brown film clinging to the glass. In the glass it is basically black with a strong roast coffee & pecan? aroma. Full bodied, sweet lactic milk chocolate with a roast coffee blend. Middle of the road flavor wise but incredibly appetizing. A really great low ABV stout, just 5.3%! My favorite of the day, damn good.

Bomber from Portland via the lake beer fridge. Pours a rich black with thinish head. Some lacing. Nose is mild; initial taste screams coffee and chocolate...very tasty. Smooth / full mouthfeel. Wish we could get this here.

Ipaluvr082 (51) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 23, 2014
I love this beer and this brewery. It’s a dark black roasty malt with a great coffee nose. I don’t taste seven grains, just stout and coffee, I’m sure I can survive on it though!

Sharp peppery taste, black with small beige head. Aroma is normal stout dark malt. Slick, slippery mouthfeel, lingering pepper finish

ACHops (653) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Growler from Chuck’s 85th. Pours deep inky brown with medium mocha head that fades quickly and laces well. Aroma is big espresso notes, lightly sweet dark chocolate malt, with dry oaky flavors as well. Taste is rich super smooth roasty chocolate malt, mild but noticeable bitterness, and sweet nutty espresso that really jumps out on the finish. Perfectly balanced, amazingly rich and flavorful particularly for such a low abv. One of the best stouts around; and organic as well. Really impressive.
