pours a black-dark brown with a two finger tan head which fades to very nice lacing. Aroma is of hazelnut coffee, roasted malts, caramel, and milk coco. Taste is of roasted malts, hazelnut coffee, coco, molasses, caramel, and some walnuts. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, roasty, moderate finish. Overall, a tasty, sessionable stout, that makes nice use of hazelnut coffee

Great label screen on this 220z bomb : That aroma! That beautiful, coffee aroma! Look, I love this thing! I think many, who are not coffee / espresso freaks, may experience problems with this stout. Perhaps a little more dry that I was expecting, but I’m enjoying it, and I don’t mind the considerable acidity. Glad to try!

Bomber from Bine and Vine. Pours very dark brown/black with a creamy/foamy 3 finger tan head. Aroma is mostly chocolate with a hint of coffee. Med + body. Flavor starts chocolate then a huge burst of nutty coffee intrudes. Then it’s definitely hazelnut. Lots of flavor for a stout. Finishes dry and burnt malt bitter. Good stuff.

Bottle from trade (b3shine?). Aroma is reminiscent of the dirty, leftover pot of hazelnut coffee. Flavor is thankfully not an old coffee taste, rather much more coffee than beer. Analogous to what Dodgrblu said months ago, "I want the beer to taste bourbon barrel-aged, not a beer-flavored bourbon." The coffee is just too damn strong for the beer flavor to come through. Still, not a complete loss. Fair beer. (Ironically, I needed something to keep myself awake while entering Q3 grades...found it.) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours black with thick brown head. Nose and taste of roasted chocolate malt, roast coffee, toasted hazelnut, dusty cocoa and vanilla. Finishes slightly burned coffee. Medium body.

StefanSD (2069) - Lakeside, California, USA - FEB 1, 2013
650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a murky dark brown color with a medium khaki head head that has fair retention. The aroma is strong with coffee, chocolate, hazelnut and mocha. The taste is similar to the aroma with the hazelnut really standing out. The coffees are similarly rich and strong and there is a bitter walnut hop presence. Most surprising to me is a lack of any real sweetness, just lots of roasted goodness. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering coffee grounds. Overall: First rate stout, very tasty. This is only my second beer from this brewery and so far i have been impressed by them.

On tap. Dark brown with a creamy light brown head. Sweet chocolate, caramel, hazelnut coffee aroma and taste with a dry earthy bitter finish and lingering roasted grain notes. Creamy palate. Pretty good.
