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

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!

22 oz. Bomber- Nice dark pour almost black with hints of deep red when held to the light. Tan foamy head didnt stick around too long. Thick and full bodied all the way through with average carbonation and a slightly bitter roasty finish. Coffee and chocolate flavor in equal amounts and a slight taste of caramel. Very good.

Dark brown, not quite black with a big tan head. Lots of coffee in the nose, of course. Throw in some chocolate and a bit of fruitiness. The flvour is pretty good, roast and toast, coffee, chocolate, bitterness and a undertone of alcohol.

22oz. Bomber $4.49 Binnyís Willowbrook Cappuccino Stout poured a deep dark mahogany. As close to black as you can get. Completely opaque. Glows with mahogany highlights when held to the light. A 1 finger creamy head appeared on the pour and faded to a creamy tan cap. Smell is pretty complex. Thereís a bitter chocolate character thatís followed by currants and some dark fruit. Maybe bing cherries make up my mind. Bringing up the rear is strong black coffee but itís mild. Along with a sprinkling of booze. I like the taste on this one quite a bit. It seems like Iím getting different flavors with each sip. The first sip will be deeply toasted grains with a healthy dose of brown sugar. This is followed by a slight nuttiness, a sprinkling of the dark fruit, and then the bitterness of the coffee. The next sip has those same components in the same order but alcohol vapors show up about mid-palate and follow through to the finish. It changes the whole complexity. This just keeps flip-flopping. Very nice. I really like the mouthfeel on this one. Has a medium bodied but itís somewhat airy. Goes down really smoothly and leaves a nice coffee bitterness until the next swig. Drinkability is good. I really enjoy a good stout but very rarely find the drinkability super high. That being said I can easily finish off this bomber but thatíll be all. This was a pleasant surprise. I expected something decent but this was a good well made complex stout. I wouldnít hesitate in picking this up again. Note: According to the bottle this is a limited release. 12/19/06

Lovely foamy head on this beer poured from a bottle. Wonderful malt aroma. Glass lacing niceley as I drink. Very rich malt flavor with a hint of coffee. The taste of alcohol is well hidden here.The finish is of rich malt with a touch of bitterness.

On cask at Rustico, Alexandria, Virginia. Dark brown pour, with a foamy, tan head. Not much nose. Flavor is coffee and smoke, with a nicely hoppy finish and a wonderful soft mouthfeel, though Iím sure that the fact it was on cask had a lot to do with that.

Not very dark, this is more of a cola-brown bodied beer under a large, sudsy tan head. Aroma starts underwhelmingly with some dark fruit & roasted malt. Alcohol comes out late, and finally so too do some nice coffee notes. Full & tingly in the mouth. Coffee flavor is more intense than Iíd assumed from the aroma, and adds an interesting roasty bitterness to a sweet, fruity, malted base. Would be better if it were smoother/less carbonated.
