This bottle was compliments of my cousin and his wife in California! Thanks! Big bottle pours dark and heavy, with a great, tan, pillowy head. Body about as dark as dark can get, just wonderful to look at! Great aromas of molasses, smoked nut shells (pecan?), some charred grains, mild espresso, nice smoke. A nice, heavy sweetness up front on the taste, rolling to a well balanced, but somewhat mild hops finish. The mouthfeel is pretty heavy throughout, with the sweet and hops sticking around for a bit, but in a pleasing way. This is a great brew that lives up to itís name! Damn heavy, and quite the ride at the same time! Itís great to try a brew from a part of the country I usually canít try! Prosit!

Bomber shared, pours dark brown with mocha colored head. Aroma is delicious. Coffee, chocolate and licorice. Medium bodied and full flavor. This one leads from licorice to coffee to bittersweet chocolate. Blended very well eah flavor complimenting the other. Excellent stout.

Drank during an awesome tasting at Thijsí place 28-3-2014. Watery beer, compared to several others we had. Coffee is present. Not a deep beer. Though not very bad.

A strong coffee aroma. It had flavors of vanilla and coffee well balance between sweet and hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The beer poured outstanding with a solid dark cola hue to it, passes through no light at all, had a solid brown foamy head, and left decent lacing on the glass. The beer smells great with a solid espresso nose and a mild smokey finish with mild hints of dark chocolate. The beer tasted decent with a strong coffee and dark chocolate taste, a hint of birch on the back end. The mouthfeel is great as the beer was well carbonated, full bodied, and left your mouth feeling chewy. Overall, a solid beer if you love coffee/chocolate stouts.

GABF 2013. Thin bodied coffee stout. Fairly one dimensional. Could use more body and darker malt profile.
