2010-11-13. Black body with a small foamy tan head that fades. 3+ Strong aroma of espresso/coffee beans, muted base malts. 7+ Flavour of coffee and coffee grounds, modestly bitter throughout, roast, bit one dimensional but still decent - which I find interesting since I generally do not care for coffee flavours. 7+ Average palate is light for a stout for my preference. Decent! Bottle from Belmont Station, Portland

Damico (2524) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2010
Strong aroma of espresso on top of roasted malts. The flavor of coffee and roastiness goes down smooth with a nice body. A dark coffee brown/b lack color has a decent light tan head.

Dogbrick (7687) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2010 Sample from bottle at Jackie O’s BBDA and Oil of Aphrodite Release and Barrel aged Beer Festival on 9/11/10. This beer pours black with a medium thin light beige head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing. Roasted coffee and malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee. The finish is roasty with a short moderately bitter coffee aftertaste. Overall a pretty tasty beer in spite of the lower ABV compared to similar brews.

Bottle shared by Dogbrick during Jackie O’s BBDA and Oil of Aphrodite Release and Barrel aged Beer Festival on 9/11/10. Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Nose is non-subtle coffee with chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is equally non-subtle coffee with a bit of chocolate before a roasty coffee finish.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Sampled during DLD ’10. From 22-oz bomber pours a clear dark brown colored brew with a thick tan head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of chocolate malt, toasted dark malt, a hint of oatmeal and plenty of coffee. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of coffee, toasted dark malt, some chocolate, vanilla and a touch of floral hops. Finish is a tad watery but still can detect the coffee and toasted dark malt aftertaste.

Thanks to Brandon for the bomber! Poured deeper brown with a lively cap of tan head. The aroma was sweet with toasted oats, chocolate, and espresso.. some vanilla in there as well.. warm and inviting. The flavor found a blend of moderately-roasted chocolates and espresso at the core with a sweet and lightly buttery oat complement.. light earth and coffee bitterness around.. toasty espresso and sweet malts on the dry-roasted finish. Medium-bodied at most on the palate.. only OK flow between dry prickly character and sweetness.. a touch of malty sourness at the end.. overall a solid brew.

Deep, dark and stormy in apperance. It was like tar with a small brown-tannish head atop the beer. It’s got a chocolaty aroma. The flavor is coffee, chocolatey, and roasted malts. The palate was a little watery even though the flavor was not. It wasn’t as ’creamy’ as some other stouts if that makes sense ... maybe its just me.

Bomber from boFKNjackson - thanks, Matthew! Thick and oily pour, hefty and sedentary in just the right kind of way for such a brew. Moderately hopped nose with a nice roasted malt profile and not an overwhelming espresso presence. Mouthfeel is really fine, thick and creamy with a dry chalky finish to the lactic goodness. Rich and deep chocolate and roasted malts character. While the espresso could even be more pronounced to me, I dug this one.
