Bottle sampled. Pours black in color with a nice 2 finger tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and a hint of vanilla. Taste just like it smells, full of deep coffee and chocolate flavors with a clean a smooth finish. A very good stout.

Itís black, itís opaque and has a long holding creamy, off-white head. The coffee part of it is done just right. My first reaction was: sweet and a little thin. Subsequent swallows made me a fan, mouth-coating with a mellow aftertaste. I thought the hops were well balanced and was surprised to see the IBUís came in at only 29.5. It was smooth enough to be a session beer, but the 7.99% ABV short circuited that plan. Fortuneately (?) the bomber bottle satiated me. Iíll be back for seconds on another day.

Black color; creamy head; nice lace. Aroma and taste show a good malt and caramel, with some delicate coffee/roasted malt; good mouthfeel; well mixed together; good hopping. Very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. pours deep brown, with a one finger tan head. Strong chocolate malt aroma, with some coffee. Flavor is again primarily chocolate malt, i feel that the coffee plays a supporting role. Some hops are also present in the background. Finishes bitter, with hops and dark chocolate.

bomber from Saarlander, thanks Aaron. aroma of coffee and some lactose. flavor is more coffee, some chocolate and malt. I like coffee in beer when it contributes to the flavor not when it dominates like this one.

The Dan Journal #58. Tasted November 2006. 22oz bomber. Opaque with a tan head. Dry brownie coffee nose. Touches of bread with a slight hazelnut aroma. Full bodied with a coffee and vanilla flavor. Bittersweet chocolate and a touch anise. Mellow cappuccino flavor. Not my favorite style.

[295-20070503] 330mL (c/o blankboy, w/ him, GregClow, jerc, mds). Faint chocolate malt and roasted beans aroma. Dark black red body with a quick light red tan bubbly head. Bitter coffee and malt roast flavour. Full Body. Funny label story, blending is good, pretty solid beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Pours out a translucent, dark brown body with a dense, wispy beige-colored head.
Smell: The aroma is primarily milk chocolate and caramel. Soft notes of coffee that are so light itís nearly nonexistent.
Taste: Overall, the flavor is moved by sweet, chocolaty malts. Hints of coffee and vanilla. A dry, roasted astringent bitterness rounds out the finish.
Mouthfeel: Lackluster medium-thin body, with a fizzy carbonation.
Drinkability: This is all wrong. This beer does little to deserve the label "cappucino." The pained lack of richness and coffee flavor was a real letdown.

The color is black/brown and i can see through the beer. The head is creamy and nice. The aroma has nice notes of coffee and the flavour has a lot of coffee, a light sweetness, light hints of licorice and a light bitterness, that develops further in the finish. Itís a very charming stout, itís light but still it has a lot of body. Thank you Linus_Stick/Alan for this nice stout! 2317

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rated 5/5/07: What an awesome and aggressive stout, I am impressed after enjoying a bomber of this. Opaque brown pour with a massive foamy tan head that diminishes to a constant 1/4" thick leaving very little lacing. Slap your face aroma of freshly brewed cafe (not that cheap common coffee ;) with rich roasted malt and a heaping dose of bakers chocolate. Medium-thick body not as rich as a good impy but itís still no slouch. Bitter finish and very smooth. Flavor suits me just right. Strong and bold with a well received bitterness. Gourmet chocolates, robust coffee, and.......pacific northwest hop additions. Leave it to these guys to throw in a handful of flavoring and bittering hops just to try and catch me off guard. Well played and it works marvelously in this brew. Yeah, this stout rocks hard!
