Bomber from Uber.

I’ve wanted to try this one for a long time. Pours a deep inky black with a relatively short-lived crema head that leaves behind intense lacing. The aroma is intense: roasty chocolate malts laced with blackberry juice and coffee icing. Heavy oat-stout flavors lead off the flavor profile, tasty but not too sweet, a slight lacto-sourness, hints of berry leading to a wonderful roundness of both flavor and palate through the middle before yielding to what one expects to be a imperial-stout hop close but instead offers a balanced bitterness driven entirely by the coffee, leaving one with the feeling that one has just down an espresso (from a roast that is dark but not at all burnt) and is savoring the oils that linger on the tongue; baking chocolate and again hints of oat peek through in places and add interest to the finish.

The mouthfeel is excellent throughout. As smooth as can be, creamy but not heavy or oily, absolutely no alcohol presence on the tongue (though there is a hint in the aroma). Beautiful.

Overall an excellent beer.

Bought this bottle from State Line a few weeks ago and opening it today in honor of Michael Jackson’s passing. Sticky-sweet coffee stout aroma with a huge, room-filling level of roast. Chocolate and cocoa. Soul-sucking, black hole black pour, as opaquely black as imaginable with a dark brown, fluffy head that richly reaches its way up the sides of the glass and offers a truly beautiful meniscus. Taste of darkly roasted gourmet coffee with occasional flashes of chocolate and cocoa powder; very dry (water-sucking, quickly dehydrating) with a nearly unbelievably true-to-life espresso aftertaste - should I have served this in a tiny cup and consumed it with raised pinky? Slightly burned with a touch of lactose, though I may be mistaking the latter for the oats. Bitterness here is understated and tactful, with very faint hop prickling toward the back. Great balance! As for feel, one of the few beers to truly earn the term "velvety", as this is luscious and swirling smoothness in fullish-medium form. It’s not reaching to say the oatmeal adds a lot here - in both sultry smoothness and the occasional oaten note. Alcohol here is so well integrated as to not be noticed, and therein lies the paradox; this big boy features all the robustness and flavor of a well-made imperial stout but without the potentially catastrophic hangover effects. Classy yet decadent - it just blows the competition away!

A well- balanced stout. The coffee is not too overpowering. The chocolate aspect of the flavor (chocolate malt?) compliments the coffee. This would be great with a rich and decadent chocolate cake!

22 oz- Pours like motor oil. Nice long lasting,lacing tan head. Scents of chocolate malts and coffee with tastes of the same. Very smooth with tastes that linger. Good choice Jimmack.

cluny6 (115) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2007
Pours a dark, almost black brown. When served in a pint glass, it gave me a 2cm head which qiuckly dissipated. The aroma is of coffe laced with a bit of alcohol. The flavor is chocolaty with a lot of coffee notes. a bit of hops. low carbonation. A very good stout although not my favorite style (stouts)

22 oz bottle. Pours an extremely dark and opaque black-brown with a dark brown head that quickly recedes to a thin film that laces the glass some.

The aroma is chocolate malts, oatmeal, lactose, dark fruits and vinous alcohol.

The flavor is chocolate with some slightly tart and sour fruits (seem a little out of place) leading to a roasted grainy and acidic coffee and tar finish that is quite bitter. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, a little low on carbonation, but extremely velvety - one of the first things I noticed as I sipped it.

Overall, a fun well-made beer. I’d prefer less hops and more coffee though (never thought I’d say that!). I really want to love this, but it is just shy of an awesome beer...still very good though (albeit expensive).

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2007
Pours a dark dark brown to black with a decent light brown to tan head, diminishing. The nose is basic coffee stout. There’s a full bodiedness to this beer that goes beyond weak as shit coffee stout, but this lacks the umph of a coffee imperial stout. Rond sweetness, but still that acrid coffee sweetness like in Schlafly’s Coffee Stout is still there. Otherwise, the profile has more in common with Founder’s Breakfast Stout. Thick on the palate without too much carbonation and decent viscosity. The nose predicts the flavors well. Too much of that coffee flavor that disagrees with me. The oats give a soft sweetness, that I think should be slightly amped up. Not that this is too harsh with sweetness. The coffee roast comes on strong in a surprisingly dry clean finish. Not bad, but slightly below my high expectations.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2007
Huge espresso and dark chocolate nose and taste. Very velvety smooth on the palate. Has bold and intense flavors and aroma. I need to try one with pancakes in the morning (followed by a nap).
