Dark brown color, brown head. Dry, roasty, lightly bitter, some green pepper notes sneaking in. Ok. But not amazing.

Poured from bomber into teku glass. Decent aroma of coffee and malt without much vanilla or chocolate. Flavor follows a bit. The vanilla was there at times but for the most part didn't play a role. Coffee was the strongest, but even then, I thought it was a bit muted. Really, this beer was much more subtle than I expected. None of the additions stand out, which can be a good thing. Very smooth and easy drinking.

Bomber pours a pitch black with small mocha head that lingers and leaves good lacing. Aroma has plenty of chocolate, some licorice, some coffee. Taste is slightly sweet with a bitter, boozy finish. Body is full with slight carbonation and a satisfyingly oily mouthfeel. This one is substantial, and can make you ask what happened.

Bottle. Pour is black with a very small dark tan head that fades quickly. Aroma and flavor of ground coffee, dairy cream, brown sugar, dark roasted malt, and slight caramel. Finish is overpowered by the dark roasted malt.
