COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sumatra Coffee Stout was designed specifically to blend with the robust essence of freshly toasted Sumatran coffee beans.  Beginning with a coffee-chocolate aroma and finishing on smooth mocha notes, this beer is richly satisfying and easy to enjoy.  Flaked oats and premium malts create a medium-bodied beer which is infused with cold-brewed coffee, resulting in a deeply-colored, uniquely flavored ale.

Bomber. Black with an inch of creamy chocolate malt head. Aroma is dark roasted malt and coffee with a shot of mocha. The flavor starts with a slightly burnt and earthy coffee blend with chocolate, malt and oat highlights. The body is thick and creamy with dry, roasty finish and mild coffee aftertaste. Not a bad way to start the day.

Big dark black beer, tons of coffee and dark chocolate aroma and flavors. This was thick with roasty malt and light hops. Dry finish this warmed up well. I liked the beer needs to be a seasonal for the winter months.

Bomber poured a translucent dark brown with a lasting brown head. Aromas of coffee, roasted malt, bitter chocolate and light vanilla. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of coffee, roasted malt, bitter chocolate and light vanila with a smooth lingering coffee finish.

Thanks to Andre for the bomber! Poured deeper brown with just a little life to it.. the head settled quickly. The aroma picked up softer, sweeter chocolate and coffee notes, with touches of vanilla and earth accenting.. roast was moderate, and a touch of oxidation was evident.. soft and fairly benign, but enjoyable. The flavor found syrupy roasty coffee throughout, with touches of molasses and chocolate joining.. the coffee didn’t stand out by any means, but it was again enjoyable.. sweeter, roasty coffee at the end. Light-medium-bodied with a dry roast throughout on the palate.. tacky at times.. overall a very drinkable beer, but quite forgettable.

22. Pours black with a wispy swirl of grayish head that never really materializes beyond that level. Big roasty dark coffee nose, smells like a full-roast coffee served hot and steaming. Creamy medium body with virtually no carb at all. What happened there? A beer this big and this fresh, it had to be an oversight in production. Rich roasty toasty coffee mid-palate with a long coffeeish finish. Could use a bit more complexity, but shows some promise.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours black with a rapidly disapating tan head. The aroma is coffee. That’s all. And lots of it. Body is not quite medium. Flavor is really strong coffee, might be some chocolate, but strangely I think there’s some capsaicin. It’s rich, coffee and quite flavorful. I might go for some mocha here. But no matter what I think I taste, the next mouthful is super coffee. Good coffee too.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Nose of fresh dark coffee beans, hints of roast, oat, dark chocolate. Pours dark brown, thin tan head. Flavors of dark roast coffee up front, some dark chocolate bitter sweetness, light sweetness underneath. Solid nose and flavor. Body seemed a little thin and thats probably my only complaint, but still a really nice beer.

Nice coffee aroma --finishes very smooth. Paired it with a flank steak, yum!
