Pours thick and black, with a short-lived tan head - lovely coffee aroma - in fact, it doesn’t really smell like a beer at all - it smells like the inside of a coffee shop - creamy body - the flavor is mostly dark roast coffee up front, with all of its rich flavors, and none of its strong bitterness - medium dry, though - tobacco, dark fruits, cocoa beans - a little bit of smoke and char - very smooth and drinkable, with well-masked alcohol (I would have guessed 6%) - well done.

Bottle. Pours near black with a brown head. Roasted malt aroma with a solid amount of coffee. The flavor has roasted malts, a touch of chocolate and restrained coffee notes. As it warms the coffee notes become way more pronounced, it develops a hint of smoke, and a lingering roasted coffee bitterness dominates a rather long finish. Very drinkable, very enjoyable. Adds a nice punch to the solid resume of beers put out by Long Trail. P.S. If you haven’t tried Double Bag yet, give it a whirl.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 26, 2009
On tap at Bacchus. Pours a deep black with a medium tan to brown head. Roast coffee and caramel on the nose. Body is medium and ample with coffee, but not overpowering. Almost a hint of cereal malt on the finish, with a good amount of coffee bitterness. Nicely balanced, and I had no idea that the abv was above 4 or 5. It hides it really well.

Pours black with a off light brown creamish colored head. Aroma consists of a slightly astringent coffee, chocolate. Flavor consists of a somewhat chalky coffee flavor, slight hints of bitter chocolate.

zathrus13 (1703) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Bottle. Pours black, with a brown head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roasted and slight burnt malt. Flavor is coffee, chocolate, and lesser bits of fruit and burnt malt. This is a nice surprise from Long Trail. And at $4 a bomber, wow.

revans (46) - Salem, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Tap at Buffalo Brewpub. Smells, well, like coffee. Duh! Black with dark tan head. Good lace as it goes down. Tastes like coffee with a hint of chocolate. Finishes dry. Highly recommend this stout.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Pours black with dark brown, almost purplish head. Lots of burnt/roasted malts in the aroma with tons of roasted coffee. Some slight residual sugars lend a bit of berry fruitiness that is pretty nice upon warming. Nice flavor along the lines of peche and founders breakfast stout, maybe not quite as well developed but still a great example of the style. Some slight chocolate and a bit of citrus at the finish. Some slight chalkiness at the end and that oily/bitter flavor you get with a nice cup of black coffee. I usually am not a fan of the brewery, but this is definitely worth a try.

basewars (169) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Tap at CNY brewfest. Pours black with thick brown head. Aroma is roasted mat with plenty of coffee. Flavor is a pleasant mix of coffee and chocolate. Nice and smooth for a big stout. Alcohol is well hidden. This was one of my favorites of the day.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2009 draft poured a black color and arrived with a thin dark tan head. aroma has dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, lightly roasted malt, and a touch of sweetness. I thought long trail would fall short on a big offering but so far this is good. mouth feel is medium with low carbonation. flavor has nice roast level without being burnt, coffee, decent malt strength, and chocolate hits. this is not a huge beer, more session level, but the flavors are right and the alcohol is well hidden. I have a soft spot for long trail after living in Vermont, and this is one of there best offerings.

22oz bomber. Served into Duvel tulip. Pour is the standard impy. black with a nice thick brown head. Aromas of burnt/roasted malt, strong coffee and thats about it. Flavor is outstanding with tons of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, caramel notes, and no alcohol presense at all. Wow, I was debating buying this one since Long Trail brewed it, but I am more than pleasantly surprised! For $2.99 a bomber I think I might just go and but a case. Amazing brew!
