Pours a deep dark brown with cola colored edges when held up to the light. Light mocha colored head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is coffee, vanilla, roasted malt and a hint of chocolate. Taste doesn’t come across as complex as the aroma. Coffee and roasted malt at the fromt with a bitter coffee finish. Overall a decent stout but this might be appreciated more by coffee drinkers which I am not.

Noir avec une moyenne robe marron. L’arôme a plein du café avec un peu du chocolat et du malt torréfié. En bouche il y a le saveur intense du café avec un peu du chocolat amer et du malt torréfié.

jc1762 (312) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 21, 2015
Poured into a teku showing light black with coffee brown rims and latte colored. The nose is sweet with hints of soy sauce The palate is light bodied and well carbonated. Showing a very strong back ground of roasted malt and a strong cappuccino bitterness. Guess it sets out to accomplish what it says. Will also say this is probably a lot closer to a porter given how light it drinks.

Bomber from Cornelius, shared with jeevan and Stuu666. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aromas of strong coffee, malt, toffee. Taste is more coffee, light sweet milky notes maybe. Texture is creamy, but thin on the finish, maybe, Mary?

HoppyScallywag (152) - Butler, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2015
This is a really nice stout. It starts with a smokey coffee flavor and drinks super smooth. I couldn't believe the ABV on this....like 9%! It fades on the palate to a espresso shot aftertaste and a warming burn. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz pour from tap into shaker pint. with my breakfast bagel in Bozeman. Beautiful appearance. Black, opaque, fluffy tan head with great lacing. Full and creamy. Nose is sweet, coffee, cream. Taste is delicious. Milk, chocolate, cream, coffee, a little woodiness. A lot of malty coffee flavors and a hint of real coffee sourness. Awesome.
