3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours very dark brown, with a light tan airy head. Reddish brown hues appear all over the place. Aroma is pretty vague...coffee, caramel, and hops with some metal in the background. Flavor is coffee, brown sugar, roasted and chocolate malts, and a touch of milk, finishing off with a hoppy and coffee bean bitterness. Medium bodied but creamy and smooth. There is a good amount of lacing that clings to the glass along with a thin tan head that remains until the end.Alcohol isn’t at all noticeable ’till the end of the bottle! A very nice, sessionable, coffee stout.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is a light somewhat sweet burnt scent. Color is black with good carbonation and a thin tight head. Taste is roasted, toasted and smooth. Stating with a full body it goes down smooth with a little brunt bite on the end. Finish starts with a deep roasted flavor then black coffee and a slight sweetness. After taste is a nice bitterness and a faint alcohol feel. This is a great nicely balanced Stout.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz - Aroma of toasted malts, roasted espresso beans, cream, caramel and a touch of hops. Pours very dark brown with a medium head and great lacing. Flavor is strong coffee, roasted chocolate malt, burnt milk and caramel. Cappuccino is a great deScription! Palate is sticky and creamy without a hint of alcohol. A tasty brew that is different enough to standout amongst the multitude of coffee stouts.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pour is a nice, thick brown with a bit of a atan head, but nothing to outrageous. Aromas are roasty, with some smokey/peaty notes and a touch of espresso. Espresso bean flavor hits lead off, followed by a bit of smoke and a dark fruit/molasses finish that leaves a little alcoholic warmth. Mouthfeel is fairly creamy. Lovely drink in the dead of winter.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty creamy, but i dont get to much coffee or cappachino in the smell or palate, even when warmed. Tasted more like a typical stout to me. Some toffee/coco aftertaste w a little coffee. Smooth for 8.3 ABV

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
pours a transparent near black shade of brown. it’s topped with a fluffy tan head that leaves when it damn well pleases...aroma is initially metallic malt. but it calms to reveal dark roasty malts, chocolate, cream and spent coffee grounds. flavor is the same with the addition of some vanilla notes. it’s quite dry and bitter with a slight hop presence. it also finishes dry and bitter with a lingering burnt coffee aftertaste. the body is a bit thin but gets creamier as it warms...
