3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One sentence. Iím from Texas. Iíve eaten bluebell ice cream my entire life. If you mix Hersheyís syrup into big bowl of Bluebell vanilla ice cream and let it sit a while it makes a killer milkshake taste. This beer tastes exactly like that. Itís like a vanilla ice cream mixed with Hersheyís chocolate. Itís freaking rad. Great stout. Next time I will get some dessert to eat while drinking it. Buy it. Drink with Ice Cream.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very nice coffee stout, above average. Beautiful pour of dark, dark brown with a substantial beige head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, and roasted grain. Well balanced flavor of coffee, sweet malt, mildly bitter and rich. Well done, would repeat.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650 ml bottle poured into shaker. Deep coffee-colored pour with a finger of light khaki head. Not much in the way of head retention or lacing. Straightforward coffee and chocolate aroma. Flavor is all sweetness up front giving way to the rich coffee bitterness. Frankly I find this too sweet for a coffee stout. Alcohol is well concealed, but thatís pretty standard for a flavorful stout. While this certainly isnít bad, Iíve had better examples of the style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a brown-black with very light white head. Has a strong coffee and cocoa aroma. Taste is strong with malt, coffee, light chocolate, and some dark liquor. Aftertaste is similar to a bold dark roast coffee.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Coffee/cocoa roasted aroma; a little coffee beer "jalapeno". Roasty coffee flavor, and some caramel/toffee. Subtle acidity. Dry, bitter-ish coffee finish, with lingering sweet aftertaste. Nice balance between the coffee and malt flavors.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thick black coffee and chocolate syrups. Creamy mouthfeel. Overall a bit too rich and sweet for my tastes.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear black with red edges and a small but tight khaki head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, cappuccino, coffee, and raisins. Taste is very charred malt, tons of coffee, and thats about it. Tastes good, however, lacks complexity. Alcohol burn is slight and fairly well hidden. Body is medium at best. Good solid stout that, in my opinion, needs a bigger body.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber (2014, 9.2% ABV). Pours dark, stouty brownish black, massive espresso colored head with exceptional retention and nice lacing. Nose is malt, coffee beans, roasted barley, puffed wheat cereal. Mouth is medium-full bodied, bittersweet coffee and chocolate up front, then more bitterness, but not hoppy bitterness... more like burnt coffee bitterness like when they donít clean the machines properly at the local WhoreBucks. Finish comes full circle with some sweetness and coffee in the finish. Alright, but not my favorite Lagunitas offering.

Pours dark black with a tannish thick head. Smells of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Taste is roasted malt sweet chocolate and finishes with a coffee flavor. Silky smooth. Medium body, medium carbonation.

This is a great stout. Coffee leads the way but not too overpowering. Great looking, great tasting.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
ABV well hidden strong taste of coffee and really a nice stout. Poor look though small head that goes poof. Nice brew to have by the fireplace and one can tell that it is a quality beer
