3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Opaque brown, head dissipates a little too quickly. The aroma is coffee and roast grain, stronger on the exhale after a sip. Surprisingly sweet at first, then the dark roast bitterness and coffee flavor follow. Long finish, like an espresso shot with sugar. My new favorite lawnmower beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Aroma is toasted malts and grain with subtle coffee. Taste is dark roasted coffee and almost burnt malts. Body is a clean black, full across the palate and long coffee finish. This would be a solid stout by itself but the coffee adds to the experience in a well balanced way. It still has that old style stout charm too. Great beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Nugget in Vacaville. Pours a dark brown color. The coffee smell is super strong. Good strong coffee flavor, but just a little light bodied for my taste. Solid brew.

10/26/13. $10.99 Bomber from RW. Drank after wasabi dinner.
HUGE HUGE HUGE coffee nose. I thought this is it...the perfect coffee beer...not so fast my friends. Taste is a little bit of a letdown being that the smell was so good. Mouthfeel is a little watery.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottled. Very dark brown pour with a dark tan head. The aroma is all malty and espresso, pretty strong. The taste is very malty to start, pretty full bodied and leaves a dry finish. Overall a decent stout.

I believe I got a collaboration brew with boulder beer. Aroma is nice with coffee notes and other roasted dark malts. Flavor also has the intense espresso flavor which is really nice. This reminds me a lot of Lagunitas espresso brew. Love these!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep dark brown with a thin head, light coffee nose, more coffee and a little tar on the palate, hints of dried fruit and old wine as the temperature rises, dry and lightly bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with a big, foamy brown head that settles down quickly. Nice lacing. Nose is coffee with medicinal notes and a touch of yeast. Not particularly pleasing, to me. Taste is dry and somewhat bitter. Fairly thin mouthfeel. Quite drinkable, but on the low end of stouts for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured thick an black with a large creamy dark brown head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was anise, floral hops and bitter coffee. The flavor was strong coffee, black licorice, floral hops, perfume and hints of cocoa, roasty malts and wood. Medium length finish of coffee and black licorice. Full bodied and smooth. Solid but I was hoping for better.
