Dark, almost black pour with a big, but fading tan head. Aroma is chocolately and sweet with lots of coffee, cream, sweet/roasty malts. Taste is a wonderful helping of good coffees, chocolate, and tasty malts. A bit of cream and various sweet flavors detectable. Tasty stuff.

Opaque, with a mocha head. Heavy coffee, chocolate fudge, espresso, caramel, espresso, and butterscotch. Taste is coffee, milk chocolate, very roasty. Nice mouthfeel.

Deep black pour with a thin tan head. Nice coffee aroma. Nice flavor, with strong coffee notes and a hint of roasted malt. Alcohol is masked. Personally, I like the Nogne Imperial Stout better, but this is still pretty good. I can tell why they call this "Beer Geek Breakfast." Glad to have tried it.

Reminds me of Deschuttes Abyss. Pleasing sourness followed by a sweet, smooth and lush coffee and licorice malt. An American stout made in Denmark.

Pours a black color with a dark brown head. Nice balanced aroma with the coffee not being too over powering with roasted malts, chocolate, sweet malts, and just a hint of hoppiness. Flavor starts off with plenty of coffee, roasted malts, and chocolate. Sweet malts and oat dominate the middle flavor and finishes with a decent bitterness from the hops. A pretty delicious stout.

22 oz. brown bomber bottle. No freshness date seen. Poured out a deep chocolate brown color, with a volumous mocha colored head. Aromas are of chocolate, coffee, burnt sugars. Medium body, thick & chewy mouthfeel. Flavors are of coffee beans, roasted malts, slight notes of vanilla also. Finished dry & somewhat chalky.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2011 Beuatiful pour! Black color with a fairly full, dark tan, firm, and creamy head; head is somewhat lasting leaving nice, tight lace. Nose is somewhat simple but perfectly balanced between dark chocolate notes, nicely roasted coffee beans, and a cedar hop bitterness. Other hints of smoke and burnt caramel. Flavors are similar; nice roasted bitterness of a fine coffee, balancing moderately bitter cedar hops, with only hints of dark chocolate and burnt caramels. Palate is nice; velvety smooth, soft, medium full, and flows off the tongue with a silky , dry touch. Finishes somewhat quickly leaving silky with a touch of dryness, coffee bitterness, and woody cedar notes that linger. Lacks the complexities of an imp but probably the most drinkable dark beer I’v ever had. It’s too bad I couldn’t drink this everyday for breakfast! A very balanced beer with excellent roasted coffee notes and bitter cedar hop notes. Finally available here in CO and it was worth the wait.

Bomber thanks to xnoxhatex. Pours dark brown with a thin filmy head. Coffee yep that’s coffee in the nose. A little chocolate and earthniess. Burnt coffee charred flavors. Lightly creamy and bitter roast. Finishes with dry coffee beans. Its good. Basically a creamy cup of cold coffee.

22.3 oz bottle. Enjoyed for breakfast while watching the climb of the Galibier. Dark chocolate brown yields a small head but leaves a pretty crema ring and a thin haze. Looks rich, smells rich. Dates, coffee, concord grapes and mild woodiness. Milky body with coffee and dark fruits. Melts away with a bit of citric carb fizz and ends with dry bitter greens. Elegance becomes aggressive. Crazy good.
