Bottle from Kenny Road Market, poured into snifter. Pours black with a finger of tan head. The aroma is full of coffee with some caramel malt notes. The flavor is similar, but the coffee really takes charge over the anise, coffee, and hop flavors. Full bodied and robust. Good stuff.

Bomber from parts unknown, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.
App.: Deep brown-black with a decent mocha head.
Aroma: Coffee, dark chocolate and nuts, dark-roasted maltiness, so much coffee, chocolate and nuts, wow, lightly boozy.
Palate: Medium-full body, very creamy and very fine carbonation.
Flav.: Tons of coffee, lots of dark chocolate and moderate nuttniness, boozy, so full-bodied and rich; lots of booze, and a very long coffee and dark chocolate finish.
A very big beer. Probably a poor choice for a work night.

A very good, milk shake like beer. Pours a beautiful deep black with thick tan head. Smells of mocha, vanilla and cinnamon. Extremely thick taste. With lots of milk, vanilla, cinnamon and some chocolate and coffee bitterness in the finish. Had in the bottle.

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!"
