3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours black with a 2 finger ran head. Nose is overwhelmingly coffee grinds. Taste is similar but finishes with some milky sweetness and a touch of pepper. Mouthfeel is a little thin but sufficient carb. Has potential but the coffee is just overwhelming.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 2/7/14
Aroma: The nose is burnt malts, roast, and some sweet malts too, mostly unsweetened coffee
Appearance: It pours a dark brown-black color with a light brown head a decent lacework
Flavor: The flavor is quite coffee, leans unsweetened, with burnt malts and sweet notes too
Palate: The body is medium, leaning light, not watery, soft carbonation and a clean, dry finish
Interesting stuff. It is much more of a dry, roasty, unsweetened coffee beer than a sweet coffee beer. Works pretty nicely.

Bottle. Almost looks like coffee ... rich and black, with a bit of a latte, thin but frothy top. The aroma and flavor adds a component of dark chocolate to the java character. Nice mouthfeel, rich flavors but still easy to drink. Very nice. (#5355, 12/9/2013)

22oz bottle. Poured a dark brown, almost black with a smaller sized off white head. Very nice roasted coffee aromas. Coffee lighter in the tastes with vanilla and chocolate. Would like to have the same coffee presence in the tastes.

Bomber pours a near black with ring of light brown head. Nice aroma of coffee with creamy vanilla gives way to roasty chocolate. Smooth and silky on the palate. A little thin, but Creamy finish. Nice.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: Draft at Magnolias at the Mill. It pours a very dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma has a good bit of coffee with a touch of smoke and an odd fruitiness. Roasted malt, coffee, an odd almost meatiness (smoked leather?), and the contrasting fruitiness. Medium body with average carbonation. This one didn’t do much for me.
