Pours a deep brown, borderline black color. Aroma is as the name would suggest, coffee. The coffee while evident, is well balanced and not over powering in any way. There is a nice roasted grain aroma, with a hint of smokiness wafting upwards at the end. The flavor is not as aggressive as I anticipated, but is a bit on the sweet side, with a dark fruit flavor (which I finf odd) coming through on the finish. Pretty decent, though not spectacular.

Bomber: Poured black with a slightly tan head. The aroma had a lot going on. I smelled coffee, chocolate, dried fruit, and alcohol. It tasted like spent coffee grains, with chocolate and roasted flavors in the background. The finish had a prune taste to it. Overall, I thought it was just alright.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Bomber. Pours brown black with a light tan head and good lacing. Aroma is strong roastiness with a definite coffee coponent. Mmmm coffee. Coffee is nice. Coffee is extremely evident in the taste as well, thankfully. Creamy, full bodied mouthfeel. Perhaps a little one dimensional with the coffee overtaking any other flavor characteristics but hell, I don’t mind. This is way better than I thought it’d be.

Suttree (6046) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Black. As black as black can be. Dense beige head. Aroma is very heavy on the coffee, but with a nice citrus note, as well. Flavor also has a lot of coffee, with some nice chocolate and molasses in the back ground.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Pours a very dark chestnut brown color, almost black. Thin half-cm tan head. Nutty and bitter coffee on the aroma, with a roasty undertone. The bitter coffee is more up front in the taste, but is smooth and not caustic. Decent cofee roast finish. Not the most coffee-ish or roasty of the coffee stouts, but a nice brew.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Pours brown. Smells of light coffee. It wasn’t as roasted and overpowering as other coffee stouts. It tastes like coffee with sugar and honey. It has a nice little hoppy finish. It was balanced and smooth throughout.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Bottle. Pours dark brown, with a thick tan head that slowly develops to fill the glass. Aroma is coffee and malt, with a medium body that tastes about the same. The alcohol is not really evident in the aroma or flavor.

egajdzis (6067) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2007
Poured a dark brown / black color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast, cocoa, cappuccino, vanilla, and coffee. Taste of light chocolate, roast, smoke, vanilla, and lengthy coffee throughout. Creamy mouthfeel.

jsquire (4115) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Attractive dark brown beer out of the bottle with a short lived frothy tan head. Very sweet nose with lots of malt syrup and sweetened coffee, but not as overpowering as a lot of coffee beers. This is a very sweet beer, with white sugar, burnt caramel, and bitter chocolate. The coffee really only comes out as a bitterness in the end, and even then it is like coffee with too much sugar in it. If you like sweet stouts, drink this.

soft aroma of coffee and stinging aroma of vodka. black and not dense. several flavors smoosh together from a light body. burnt toast, ruby port, and a candy sweetness like those necklaces youve worn. when i look for the coffee i find it and i like that it doesn’t knock me over the head.
