4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Aroma is strong in coffee, chocolate, roasty--sure smells good. Pours black with a one finger tan head that collapses after a minute. Taste is roasty, sweet, lightly tart with a mild bitter finish. The coffee isn’t as strong in flavor as aroma; chocolate is strong, licorice is there. Velvety mouthfeel, full body. Nice coffee beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub - Pours dark brown with an off-white head. The aroma has lots of espresso and roasty malt. It has a medium crisp body with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with heavy coffee, dry roast, dark caramel and dark chocolate. The finish has huge dry coffee and some caramel. Definitely nails what its aiming to accomplish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Pours dark brown with Longhorn-orange highlights and a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Decent retention. The aroma features deep, rich, roasted barley and mocha. Medium-bodied with a moderate measure of airy carbonation. The flavor provides mocha – espresso and dark chocolate - but is fairly thin. Watery, mildly burnt, black coffee finish.

"Had this for breakfast. Pleasant fresh coffee aroma and flavor with just enough roasted malt, chocolate and hops to balance. A touch thin on the palate, but not watery. Good call for the a.m."

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nice brown with a light brown head. Roasted chocolate, tasty coffee, reminds me of sumptown cold brew on nitro a bit, dry, easy to drink, moderate carbonation and body.

It’s rare that I find a local Stout I haven’t tried before, so when I do, I usually fall in love. This beer is no exception.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours with two finger dense tan head partially lasting with some lace. The aroma is rich high quality coffee, dark hearty bread fairly well toasted, The flavor has a good bit of pine on all that with touch of vanilla and more a stronger dark roast quality that rides out. The feel is cool silt, touch of acidity and minerality, not so lively but still fresh. I’m really enjoying this one having so much flavor without being and alcohol monster.
