3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) Pours a very dark brown, with very little head. Some coffee in the aroma, but not much else. Roasted coffee flavor almost tasted a little burnt. A pretty light palate for a stout. It’s a pretty good brew, but I have had better ’coffee’ themed stouts.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep garnet ruby brown. Pale tan, medium head, mostly dissipating. Sweet, roasty malt nose, coffee, chocolate. Toasted malt, roasty, dark chocolate, tofee, lightlty medium body, hops and bitter coffee all the way through a lingering roasty finish. Pick me up, and almost 8% a quick jab to the jaw. Speedball anyone? Another nice brew from these guys...delicious with vanilla ice cream yeah.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber; $2.59 at Ledgers in Berkeley, CA; Nose of coffee and cocoa with some floral hops in the background; clear dark brown, but it was so dark it was nearly opaque, with a very tiny tan head which quicly disapated; flavor of strong roasty coffee with a background chocolate and hop bitterness in the medium body with the hops lingering to the finish. Best $2.59 bomber I’ve had!

This is an excellent example of doing it great but differently. Nice hints of coffee make this stout/ale a real winner. Get it if you can.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was nothing super special or out there but was so smooth and tasty it was almost amazing. It was like mild coffee mixed with Herseys chocolate. ABV was not even there. Smooth and very drinkable with no bitterness or harshness.Semi velvety mouthfeel. I wish this was available in a $10 sixer instead of a $5.50 bomber. It would be a mainstay for me.
