Bomber. Pours a midnight black with a mocha colored frothy head. Sticky lacing. Aroma of fresh brewed coffee, hints of chocolate, and coffee grounds. Taste like fresh coffee with lots of sugar. Nice creamy mouth-feel. Very earthy and fresh. Dark coca on the backbone with a slight boozy taste. Finish taste like bitter coffee grounds. Linger a bit too long.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at speakeasy. Darker brown with a tan head, sticky lace. Nose is a really nice fresh coffee, cocoa, and cream. Flavor is similar but itís a bit too sweet in the flavor and on the palate. Still, one of the better bastardized beers Iíve had from NB.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Pours dark dark brown to near black with a medium tan head that leaves some lace. Aroma consists of malted chocolate milk balls, espresso. Taste starts out sweet like mocha coffee before turning bitter in the finish. The chocolate and coffee flavors are pronounced. Mouthfeel is velvety; body could be a little fuller. Nice coffee beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Smoke and Barrel....Pours pitch black, smells like a mocha latte. Itís got a ton of coffee flavor and even more chocolate. Would probably be good for dessert, but I never eat dessert. For me, itís just a little sweet and sticky.

Botte via SL... Lets start with the taste. Bitter, chocolate, coffee. Delicious! Nose is nice, cold coffee, bitter chocolate notes. Looks great... Black as wesley snipes. Small mocha colored head that fades quickly. Creamy smooth body, easy to drink for a 9+ percenter.... Overall... Good shite!

22 oz. bottle- Pours pitch black with a one finger tan head. Aroma is gourmet coffee, chocolate, it smells like creamy fresh brewed coffee with a touch of cocoa added, yummy. The taste is coffee of course, more bitter and dry than the aroma led on, cocoa, some hops. Body is full and creamy, carbonation is medium. I really liked this beer, coffee and chocolate are nothing new to the impy stout genre, but that is because it works, they blend wonderfully, really enjoyed it!
