Bomber. Pours a deep dark brown with a tan head that doesn’t stick around very long. Chocolate and coffee notes and quite tasty notes at that. Easily the best thing I have tasted from Peak thus far. Also like that it doesn’t have the crazy high abv of some others in this style but still delivers a great tasting stout.

Deep brown pour, tan head, sticky lace. Oxidized nose distracts from the mocha robeytones. Silky chocolate meets rounded coffee; taste buds rejoice. Seriously high end chocolate used here. Oak is more an afterthought than anything. Low carb doesn't distract from the mocha bomb deliciousness. So smooth, so drinkable. Much better than expected. Shows a level of refinement not often seen in shelf beer. I'd happily seek out another.

Bottle shared with friends. Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized beige colored head. The aroma and flavor had roasted malts, chocolate, oak and coffee, light vanilla notes. I would have to say I’m surprised by this although the body is thinnish.

Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma if coffee, oak, and smoke. Taste is strong smoke, not my favorite. Smoke sticks around too.

Pours black with a brown head and aroma of coffee,liquorice and oak. The oak comes through up front, along with nice liquorice, coffee, and light bourbon leading to a oaky finish. Delicous stout

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice brew overall. The pour is a completely black colour with a thick tan head that disappears to a mere bubble thick layer. The nose is woody and earthy with big coffee notes. Mild sweetness with cocoa and espresso notes . Heavy roasted notes with mild oaky and earthy notes. A bit watery and underwhelming overall.

From the tin foiled, capped 650 ml. bottle. The pour is jet black with am lingering soft, silky tan head that settles back after a period of time and leaves plenty of lacing on the glass. Beautiful. On the nose I get a well balanced dark chocolate and coffee note, which is expected since it is brewed with both ingredients. There is also a kind of dark fruity note. Full body for sure. The flavor evolves with the coffee introducing itself first and then the chocolate coming up quickly from behind, The two play off each other well. Bitter for sure that cannot be defined as earthy, floral, or grassy but more rambunctious than that. This is quite good.
