Bomber from the local grocery for an insane 3 dollar price. Dark brown pour with a small tan head. Smell is big coffee, everything else takes a back seat though I also note light chocolate and some caramel. Flavor is big coffee too, but surprisingly smooth and drinkable. Very creamy as well. This was a good beer, and it didn’t hurt that it was insanely cheap!

bomber from cbk. shared on 3/21/2010. stout colored dark brownish black with a small tan head which disappears rather quickly. the nose and flavor both show a bunch of coffee with lesser notes of vanilla, roast, cocoa and a dark fruitiness which i can’t identify. there’s an acidic coffee finish which changes the profile up a bit. the flavor and body are not very imperial but they are really easy to drink. 7/3/7/3/15/3.5

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2010
Nose has notes of dark fruit, dark chocolate, and acidic coffee notes. Pours almost black with a short lived tan head. The flavor is somewhat acidic mix of dark fruit and coffee with roasted malts and dark chocolate as well. Thin body with some alcohol in there as well. Medium lively carbonation.

Thanks to Eric for the bomber! Poured translucent coppery-brown with a short-lived beige head. The aroma picked up sweeter, light-medium roasted coffee and chocolate with earth, vanilla, and touches of darker spices and smoked meat when you dig really deep.. soft-ish overall impression that wasn’t "imperial" in nature, but would be great for a standard stout. The flavor found more of the coffee than chocolate, and it carried all the way through the drink.. some vanilla sweetness too.. dry-roasted coffee bitterness and some earth around.. a little coffee sourness on the finish. Medium-bodied with lower carbonation on the palate.. the alcohol was well hidden.. this was a smooth-drinkin’ stout, but again it wasn’t so imperial.

Taste buds destroyed by this point @ Hellbilly’s. Dark leather pour with a latte head. Aroma and flavor show roasted coffee bean and cocoa. That’s about all I got!!! Medium mouthfeel.

One of the better brews I’ve had from this particular brewery...and good stuff. Nice and light coffee undertones in a very mild and somewhat sweet stout. Not overpowering in any which way, and a nice sipping stout, especially after it’s warmed up. Would buy again.

This 22 oz bottle came from Market of Choice in Ashland, Oregon, and poued a very dark brown with big foamy tan head and lots of lacing rings. The nose is just like roasted coffee. The body is a bit thin with smooth mouthfeel and light carbonation. The flavor is freshly brewed coffee with lots of roasted malts. Bitter finish. This is about about as coffee flavored as coffee beer can get but somehow it all works.

22 oz. bottle via trade with highibus - Pours a dark brown color with a small light tan head. Aroma is mostly coffee and roasted malt. Well, so was the flavor. Some bitterness lingers in the finish. Medium body. A nice typical coffee stout. Thanks Tom.
