3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle. The pour is a light black out of the bottle with a thin tan head and no lace as it falls down to a ring. The aroma is a little boozier than I was expecting compared to some of the others in the series. There is a decent vanilla and a sweet lactose kind of chocolate. The coffee I was expecting is just about gone. The flavor is a little better. There is a beautiful roast and some great chocolate. again the coffee seems to be missing. There is a strong sweetness to accompany some vanilla that meshes well, but comes off almost too sweet. The mouth feel is decent. It's got a good thickness, but I am disappointed in the carbonation. It allows the beer to fall off of the tongue quickly. The aftertaste is the best part. It's got a good coffee presence and a well blended mix of chocolate and vanilla. Aside from that, I'm a little disappointed.

Chocolately, coffeeness....it's good but a little too sweet for being a large bottle. The 10% is masked very well. I'd get a pint of it if I were out but not another bottle.

"bittersweet coffee greets the nose first thing. i really liked this beer, but even so found the chocolate/coffee balance of the Mokah to be the X factor making me love that one more. this was ever so slightly thinner and more carbonated that OAT, but smelled amazing and was a treat just the same. ST knows how to make a stout!"

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Dark ruby color, no head. Deep aroma of fermented coffee, acidic fruits, a hint of dark chocolate. Sweet, berryish fermented/alcoholic flavor with loads of caramel, fruitiness, vanilla and woody notes. Sweet and sugary flavor, port-like berries, loads of coffee in the finish. Oily and heavy drinkability. Small niche, big beer!

Rated from notes taken 22 Jun 2011, Southern Tier Beer Tasting -- Great mix of Stout and Coffee. Coming from a guy that doesn’t much like coffee. (I need to try this beer again now that I drink coffee pretty regularly)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle from notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, coffee, chocolate with a more subdued sweetness than other ST beers like Creme Brulee and Choklat. I generally like all these in smaller amounts. Tasty enough, but not something I seek out often.

Backlog. Bottle @ Green Lion Inn 2011, aged for about 12 months in average conditions. Their dark beers always excite me, and this is truly fabulous.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Tosa Wine and Spirits. Pours an opaque black with a tan head leaving some spots of lace. Aroma has heavy roast, chocolate and caramel. Taste is of sweet caramel, lactose, heavy espresso and bakers chocolate. Bitter and strong, with a bit of a chocolate chip cookies factor. Full bodied and lowly carbonated. Quite strong and rough. Finishes to the bitter side of bittersweet, with some alcohol presence. And rough. Very tasty and very full bodied - and very extreme espresso.
