4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Binny’s Des Plaines. Finally bit the bullet and picked this one up and glad I did. Pours near black with dark tan head. Aromas of sweet espresso, dark chocolate, and deeply roasted malts. Flavors of sweet coffee, chocolate, nicely roasted malts, and finishes with nice hop bitterness. This beats the shit out of regular abduction. Super pumped for the raspberry edition. Nicely done boys.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle. Pours a dark brown black with almost no head. A really strong coffee aroma comes off as I swirl it in my glass. Lots of coffee, bakers chocolate, and vanilla. Similar flavors that are really sweet. As it warms up the coffee and dry roast flavors compete with the sweet molasses malts. A touch of heat near the finish. Although sweet, a decent beer.

650 ml bottle from trade. with Marco. Thanks. Pours a black color with a medium tan head that has good retention. The aroma is strong with coffee and coffee grounds. The taste, like the nose, is coffee, coffee and coffee. Way in the background there is a trace of mocha, dark chocolate and perhaps some bitter walnuts. The palate is full and creamy and the carbonation is soft. Finishes medium in duration and dry with lingering acidity and grounds. Overall: First rate coffee stout--Very tasty. A must try for fans of coffee brews.
