4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the bottle, it looks like coffee with about a two inch pillow of chocolate milk colored foam on top. Deep dark chocolate brown, nearly no light penetrating. Rich mocha aroma, with a hint of booze and just a touch of sour fruit smell. The flavor is rich and roasty, chocolate, coffee, caramel, orange, cherry. Nice and viscous, I sat on this one for about 6 months and itís nice and mellow. VERY good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle poured into snifter. Dark black brown color with a nice tan mocha head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor starts with a sweet chocolate malt which quickly goes to a slightly bitter strong coffee taste. Body is medium and carbonation is light to medium with tight bubbles. Overall a tasty stout although the coffee flavor was a little overpowering, covered up the other flavors.

bottle - Pours black with a tan head. It smells of coffee, roast malt, and some alcohol. It has a big roasted coffee malt flavor with some good hops balance. Itís full bodied with a roasted coffee aftertaste. Really good, especially as it warms.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the March 2013 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a medium sized soapy brown head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was semi-sweet licorice, cocoa and a bit of coffee. The flavor was dryish and toasty with notes of Bakers chocolate, a hint of coffee and a touch of roasty malts. Medium length finish of roasty cocoa. Medium body. Disappointing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black pour with a 3 finger, chunky tan head. Aroma is coffee, toasted white bread, milk chocolate, lactose sweetness, hints of dark fruit, berry tartness, caramel coated granola and Malt-O-Meal. Flavor starts off with lots of coffee, roasted nuts, lactose sweetness, earth, char, acidic chocolate, toast and earth and pine hops. Medium body with a creamy, sticky entry, slightly dry finish and light, somewhat blanketing carbonation. Good stuff, no real wow factor to it though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Aromas of chocolate, roast, coffee cake, and more cocoa powder. Tastes pretty similar with a ton of chocolate and coffee notes mixing well. Looks fantastic, with a jet black body and a thin mocha head. Overall a nice coffee stout.

22oz Bottle - Thanks OmegaX!
Appearance - Oily black, leather head
Aroma - Roasted malts, hotel coffee, cocoa powder
Taste - Mocha, caramel, dark chocolate, bitter finish
I like how smooth all the chocolate flavors melded together here. Itís a very smooth drinker with just enough bite at the end to remind you of itís 9% alcohol content.
