Poured very dark brown with medium tan head. Aroma is of roasted coffee, toffee, and chocolate. Taste is very nicely roasted coffee; Not too bittter.Nice dry finish. The body overall is way too thin. Call this one a porter and Im very impressed.... Call it a stout and Ill tell you it should be called a porter.

redgold07 (308) - Irving, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2008
What a great beer. Pours jet black with a 1 inch tan head. Aroma is of lots of coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate. Flavor is of roasted coffee with a hint of caramel. Also, the hops and greater abv come into play in the flavor as well. Great. 1 pt. 0.6 oz. bottle.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Sort of a weird one. Pours an unpleasant clear dark brown with a large tan head. Flavor has coffee and some dark fruits in it. Sort of like an english porter with coffee based on the aroma. Flavor leans heavily on the coffee elements with a bit of a tangy finish and some notes of fig. Its weird, but pretty good.

Good smell. Coffee and malt taste. Poast chocolate hints in the beer. Decent flavor but the finish fades rather quickly. Awesome brew at the percentage and value.

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Bottle... Poured deep, nearly black with some amber highlights on the bottom edge. Thick, light brown head. Aroma of coffee beans and toasty malt. The palate swarms your tongue and has a wonderful alcohol presence that is well balanced. You certainly get those espresso flavors with a nut character, earthy malt, and mild hops to balance it all out.

KAF (448) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - DEC 29, 2007
Very dark brown pour with a finger thick clean mocha brown head. Roasted malt and maybe some kind of nut on the nose. Semi-sweet flavor with the true cappuccino flavor coming through.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - DEC 29, 2007
Bottle, aged for about a year. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt. Flavor is pretty similar; the main flavors being the roasted malt and coffee. Nothing too harsh, and it was enjoyable.

Bomber: Aroma is chocolate a bit of coffee bean but not really over the top. Pours a deep black with a huge sized tan head that lingers. Taste is nice coffee ground taste ,lighter chocolate notes, caramel, and almost a roasted nuttiness to this brew. Palate is somewhat lively, not much carbonation, with some definite coffee notes. Overall, Its good but I like coffee and this has a milder coffee texture than I really like.
