I had this last night for the first time and I loved it. It has a thick chocolate-y taste and was really easy to drink even though it is a stout.
I have been very impressed with Blue Pants Brewery and look forward to future brews. SSSteve (4006) - - OCT 5, 2013
bottle. glass full of foam. turns black like magic. milk chocolate and vanilla aroma. flavor has notes of dark chocolate and vanilla. a good roasty bitterness with low hop addition. its a swell stout, i just don’t understand why every beer pours a glass of foam first. fatakis (1) - - JAN 21, 2015 does not count

Bomber from Smoky Mountain Wine and Spirits. C’mon guys, just because a beer is from Alabama you give it a low score? This is the second beer I’ve had from Blue Pants and really liked. This is an excellent coffee stout, not the best ever, but very solid. The coffee aroma and flavor is very real and developed. I kept thinking there was lactose involved, but that may be the vanilla. It’s not too sweet, the vanilla is just an afterthought beneath the roasty coffee. I don’t get any sour twang or metallic notes, just solid smooth coffee. The body and alcohol volume is very tasteful and appropriate for the flavor profile. This is great introduction to the Knoxville market and I will be buying this again, jzzbassman (1631) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Bottled. Chocolate coffee aroma hits as soon as the tan head settles on the opaque black body. Coffee mixed with cocoa powder hide the alcohol, a little burnt, finishes with good bitterness and body. Solid, I continue to be impressed with Blue Pants.

Bomber courtesy of Suttree. Thanks! Pours a dark brown color with a faint attempt at a head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, slight ash and mild roast. The taste is chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, a mild bitter roast finish. Thin-medium bodied. The taste is very reminiscent of bitter chocolate and it’s growing on me as I drink it. tnkw01 (1753) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle. Deep, dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is that of coffe, chocolate, vanillia with a tad of spicy hops. Taste is mostly coffee with a touch of hops. ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Appearance: Pours a very dark brown body with a lasting layer of deep tan-hued foam.

Smell: As one would expect, a coffee-forward, roasty aroma with touches of the added vanilla, chocolate, and dark fruit.
Taste: Roasty malts are prominent, though some charred toast is also present. The dregs of a pot of tangy coffee thrown in, a little vanilla showing. Some chalky dark chocolate. Medium-light sweetness. A little dark fruit. Slight milky tone midway and into the drying, roasty, warming, coffee-centric finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation, a bit foamy in the mouth.
Overall: A fairly competent, enjoyable coffee-dosed stout.
Taproom: Poured black with a small biege head and a thin lace ring around the edge. The aroma is mild roasted coffee, while the flavor is strongly coffee with a hint of dark chocolate. The alcohol content is quickly evident even though it has a smooth finish which entices you for more. MmmcKay (1052) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - APR 10, 2013
Really solid stout. It’s hot outside but this is the kind of stout that I could still see myself drinking even in the spring. Lush coffee with a medium weight. Finishes clean. Not too roasty. Good beer. Nice effort.
