Barreras (931) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Pours a deep brown almost black color with a roasted coffee aroma. Taste is rich with an espresso flavor mixed with a dark malt. A nice colombian coffe flavor after the swallow that dissipates and blends well . A good limited release that is very flavorful.

22 oz bomber into a glass. The pour is rather lightish brown as it pours and sea to settle up at a medium brown, hinting toward dark with a decent foamy head and some decent lacing. The aroma is devastatingly thin for a beer with this name. There is a mild coffee aroma and some solid roasty malts, but there is no dominating coffee that I'd want to see. There is almost a little bit of it that smells like dirt, or just the soil that the malts come from,bits strange. The flavor is just as weak. There is a little bit of bitter coffee up front, but it fades out quickly in lieu of the roast and a surprising lightness. The mouth feel is really watery, with a really soft carbonation and an aftertaste that is almost forcing a dry coffee on, but faded moderately quickly ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle (’13 I think). Dark brown, nearing black pour with a froth of tan foam. Coffee is faded quite a bit but it’s there in the background underneath heavier sweet malt and dark fruit with dense fudge. Taste is chocolate/fudge with thin, bitter coffee and heavier dark malt with plum. Some alcohol as well on the finish. Somewhat light mouthfeel. Pretty good beer I’d say.

This is a pretty good stout. I like the coffee notes and burnt aftertaste. Not overly complex to really push it into that amazing category for me.

From the 650 ml. bottle. The pour is deep dark black with a modest off-white head. Opaque. The aroma brings out those dark roast coffee notes with dark roasted malts balancing it all out. Low hop character. The body is medium. The taste is sweet and roasty thanks to all those coffee grinds I expect. Alcohol is very well integrated. You don’t realize it is 9.2% ABV.

Shared bomber. Good, fresh coffee with roasted stout underlying taste. Nice example of a coffee stout.

skmikeg (825) - Poway, California, USA - APR 28, 2014
Pours a pitch black with a one finger tan head with some light lacing. Aroma is of coffee, roasted malt, vanilla, caramel, and some molasses. Taste is similar to the aroma with some nice coffee, vanilla cream, caramel, and light coco notes. Has a medium-full body with a creamy, silky mouthfeel, and a slightly bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty tasty stout that almost taste like a cappuccino has has the creaminess of a cappuccino.
