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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours nearly black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is roasty malt, bittersweet chocolate and mocha coffee. Flavor starts with the same bittersweet chocolate note, smooth and creamy before the mocha character comes in. Fairly sweet as the chocolate really pops, but the coffee is nice in it as well, definitely a dessert type beer, nicely done though
