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.

Courtesy of After4ever, thanks Tom. It’s a black stout with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of coffee, hops and chocolate. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of bitter coffee, dark chocolate and the finish is hoppy and slightly bitter. It’s a really nice coffee stout with a lot of flavour in relatively few %.

Poured from 22 oz bomber I picked up while on vacation in Portland, OR. I’ve heard stories about this brewmaster leaving Flossmoor Station in Illinois to start this brewery, and after drinking I wish we had him back in IL! Aroma is uber-desserty, extremely rich in dark milk chocolate and coffee, roasty. Appearance is pure black with a tan creamy head. It’s not too sweet for the amount of chocolate that I’m sure is in it, also has a great complexity of coffee and milk. I’m really liking this sweet stout.

Bottle. Good coffee aroma, subtle hint of grassy hops. Black colour. Nice stable dark brown head. The flavour has a distinct coffee flavour. Clean and mild, yet flavourful. Some cream also. Late roasted coffee aftertaste.

Serving: Bottle
It pours almost black with a small, tan head. The nose is a mix of roasted oats and malt, coffee, and milk chocolate. The flavor follows the nose highlighting the coffee and chocolate sides. This one is well done without being over roasted as some brews are. Medium bodied with a smooth, lingering coffee finish. I really enjoyed this brew and thought the had a judicious use of coffee. Bravo!
