3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells like coffee a lot. tastes almost more like coffee than beer. Crazy. I think it has more of a dry than sweet finish, but it ends uup too much like coffee for me. Better than the Lakefront Fuel Cafe Coffee beer I had recently, but just too much.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber@ KSBF after party 06: Poured almost flat, leaving a light brown ring of foam. Clear, dark brown almost black colored brew. Coffee nose, roast and chocolatey notes with the coffee dominating. Body was lightly/medium, lightly coating. Choco, coffee flavors blended well, light roast was a nice backdrop, light fruitiness and a touch of smoke. Finish is lightly sweet and roasty. Thanks to whomever!?

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle, Kennett Square Brewfest after party 2006. Pours a clear dark brown colored body with a minimal brown head that faded to nothing. Aroma is chocolaty with a light roasty note and a good bit of coffee. Some moderate hoppiness and cocoa powder. Flavor is coffee and roast dominated, moderately bitter, with a drying slightly astringent finish. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation. Overall, I really like coffee beers, and this was a pretty good one. I’d like a whole bottle to myself.

[Colorado Road Trip – 2006]
A great Espresso Stout. Loved the flavors. This was a thick black full of aroma tar like substance that only a real beer drinker would love. The coffee and chocolate flavors where great. This had a nice finish and a wonderful overall taste. I liked this beer.

bottle. black/maple pour with almost no head. coffee, sweet chocolate, roasted malts, small hops aroma. very smooth. coffee is nice, not overpowering and the sweet chocolate follows in and stays in the aftertaste. Hops balance in as well. Not complicated at all but very drinkable and enjoyable. nice job twisted pine.

picked up a bomber at Applejack’s while in Colorado last June and shared at a recent tasting. I’m not always a big fan of over-the-top coffee type stouts, but this one was good. strong aroma of coffee, but the flavors were a nice blend of coffee, roasted malts and with enough hops to tie it all together nicely.

Thanks for sharing, Duane. The body was black with a yellow and khaki colored head. The aroma was coffee with some bread crust. The taste was light coffee with some hints of peaches. There was also a bit of roasted almonds. Nice and balanced, I enjoyed this one.

tap at the brewery. dark almost pitch black with a brown head. amazing coffee nose, like being in a nice coffee house with a bowl of chocolate ice cream. smooth wet coffee flavor with light caramel & a chocolate finish. bitter coffee flavor works so well in this.
