Bottle: Poured a thick black brown with a thin creamy light brown head. Aroma is a smooth chocolate and coffee. Taste is rich dark bakers chocolate very smooth and silky. There is a nice fresh coffee bean touch in the finish. matthewgerke (67) - - OCT 3, 2012
22 oz. bomber poured a deep black body with a thin, quickly disappearing tan head. Solid balance between the oatmeal and coffee flavors which let the espresso really come through, a nice touch. Some chocolate also came through on the finish. Very easy going down with a great mouth feel and aftertaste. umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Pours a near pitch black color with a nice beige head that lingers a bit. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and cream. Taste is silky smooth and creamy with a light sweetness. The roasted malt, coffee and chocolate flavors blend together nicely. Long finish that leaves a fresh coffee flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but it makes this very easy to drink. Love this beer. robforbes (2263) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - SEP 22, 2012
pours an opaque with an extremely large mountainous khaki head, and very good lacing.
smell is earthy, coffee, come cocoa, a tad roasty, and sour malt.
taste is dry, bakers chocolate, grain, roasted malt, some coffee, flavor grows as you drink, and hops in the back. ends bitters and a little dry. Beerdrinker79 (2188) - Idaho, USA - SEP 21, 2012
22 oz. bottle, thanks Poisoneddwarf- Pours almost totally black with a thin tan head. The aroma is oatmeal and coffee, sweet. The taste is basically the same, oatmeal and coffee, smooth and somewhat creamy, roasted barley. Body could be fuller, carbonation is medium. Overall I liked it a nice drinker, no problems or off notes.

Coffee beer showdown! I have me 4 coffee beers to compare and contrast tonight. Beer #2. Bomber pours inky black with a small dissipating tan head. Aroma is strong in coffee--a nice espresso--compared with the Midnight Sun. I also get chocolate milk. Taste is roasty and chocolatey. Body seems a little thin and the carbonation is average. Better than the (probably expired) Midnight Sun, but I was hoping this would be better. Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 11, 2012
On tap at The Burgundian, nitro. Pours black with two fingers head. Smell is chocolate and coffee roast. Taste is bitter coffee. Really thin body. Ok. doublebock (558) - California, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Nice aroma of espresso grounds. Black with tan head. Silky texture with heavy flavor of fudge, turkish coffee and tobacco. reebtogi (6350) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 31, 2012
650ml bomber from 99 Bottles in Federal Way, WA pours almost black in color with a finger of light tan head that leaves some decent lacing. Aroma is roasted grains and coffee with some chocolate and earthy notes. Taste is a roasted grain and coffee bitterness with some chocolate malty sweetness with an earthy finish. Although this is a quality brew, I am not a fan of coffee (which is too prominant in this one) which forced me to take a couple points off. Just a little too much coffee for my liking. savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - AUG 29, 2012
22oz bottle. Deep brown with a foamy tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and chocolate. Flavor is rich chocolate malt, dark roasted slightly acidic coffee and some sweet caramel. Medium to full body with lively carbonation. Pretty good beer, carbonation seemed really high for the style though.
