Bomber from letspour.com. Brown pour with thinnish tan head and slight sheets of lacing. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla. Tastes are roasted burnt coffee, hazelnut, milk chocolate, oat. Dry palate on the thin side - drinkable. Clean bitter finish. Nice.

Intense coffee aroma and flavor -- espresso is definitely not a misnomer. Also a bit of chocolate and caramel. Good stuff!

In bottle. A black beer with a decent tan head that dies away fairly quickly. Aroma of espresso coffee, cacao nibs, chocolate and caramel. Similar flavours and not sweet. Moderate carbonation, light CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel. A lovely real espresso coffee character.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured at SAVOR. Dark black color with a nice looking tan head. Aroma is chocolate, with a *ton* of coffee notes - a bit like a iced coffee drink (without the cream). Flavor was roasted coffee, a touch of dark chocolate. Mouthfeel was a bit thin, but for being a lower abv one of these, it fits about perfectly.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours almost pitch black color with a 1 finger dense tan head with nice retention, that reduces to a nice dense cap that lingers. Some nice spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, roasted malt, vanilla, cream, biscuit, and light herbal hops. Nice and well balanced stout aromas with good strength. Taste of chocolate, coffee, dark roasted malt, biscuit, caramel, molasses, vanilla, cream, and light herbal. Light coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, caramel, coffee, vanilla, roasted malt, biscuit, and herbal hops on the finish for a short bit. Great balance of flavors, with a nice amount of robustness. Medium carbonation and body; with a nice creamy and slightly slick mouthfeel. Alcohol presence is pretty much invisible as expected for 5.8%. Overall this is a damn nice coffee stout. A lot of well balanced flavors; with a very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. I really have no complaints. Really well done.

22oz bottle from LetsPour. Pours a stout brown with a tan head. Nose is chocolate, earth, espresso, and some cafe con leche. Flavor is similar with espresso and chocolate with some lactose and beautiful balance. Very nice coffee stout. Medium in body for a stout, and an enjoyable beer.
