3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Lee Discount Liquor, Las Vegas
Black color with medium sized head. Aroma of cold coffee. Dry mouthfeel, less strong than expected; flavor of stale pot coffee with some bold resiny hops.
Coffee beer? Maybe not a great idea.

Sample at the Seattle brewpub. Brownish-black pour with a medium tan head that diminishes slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Medium to full body with a roasty character and flavors of black coffee, malt and hops. The finish is dry with a lingering roast coffee aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bomber pours with a dark body that supports a mocha colored head of foam. The aroma offers up earthy malts, dark roasted malts, earthy coffee and a dash of sweet malts. The taste has nice layers of dark roasted malts, dark roasted coffee and earthy milk chocolate along with a smattering of malt sweetness here and there. It approaches being burnt with black patent malts midway and into the finish. Pretty nice, this.

Bottle:   Let me skip my normal rating style to say that this one is black, nice moderate light brown head, good nose of coffee (yet not overbearing).   Good body, roasty, with a nice coffee balance.   I am somewhat surprised, but this one is a good stout.   Granted, I didnt think this one would be of as much interest, but it is.   Fair to say, its like Black Strap with coffee added.   Nuff said.   Good enough for me to easily have again!   Well balanced, roasty, coffee grounds, bit of licorice sweetness.   Yum!
