Pours heavy black.
Lots of chocolate, coffee and rosted malt. Big bodied. kevinator (2205) - The Colony, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Awesome. Strong roasted aroma with coffee. Very black with a thin tan head. It looks rich. Smooth, weighty and full palate. Decent carbonation but not too much. The espresso is a good compliment and doesn’t overpower the richness of an already great beer. Rich dark malts with a balanced hop bitterness. Alcohol is there but well-hidden. Remarkable.

From notes, consumed on 5/12/13. Bottle poured into a Belgian snifter. Pours jet black with half a finger of tan head. Aromas of coffee, roast, espresso, caramel, bitter chocolate. Tasting notes of big espresso, roast, caramel, coffee, dark chocolate, coffee bitterness. Full body with a dry finish. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Pours a pitch black body with a frothy tight bubbled dark brown head that had nice retention and lingered like the head of an actual espresso. Pretty great nose, lots of rich dark toast coffee and roasted malt. Smells very intense, almost more like an espresso than a beer. The flavor has just the right intensity of coffee, it’s head to head and neither had the upper hand. A little bit of chocolate and burnt caramel on the finish along with a fairly noticeable alcohol kick. Thick and chewy body with just a little clinginess and soft fizzy carbonation. Rather warming on the finish from the alcohol. Pretty nice beer, I like this considerably more than the regular version.

22oz bomber pours a dark brown with a tan head. Roasted malt and coffee taste. jhliesen (832) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Bomber--really, really wonderful stuff, I waited for a cool to cold evening to drink the beer and it was perfect. The chocolate and coffee aroma hits you as you are pouring the beer. As a non-coffee drinker, I have no idea on what espresso smells like, but I like the coffee smell. The beer is black with a good size, tan head that leaves lots of lacing, looks delish. The taste is chocolate, roast malts and a coffee kick. Nice thick, solid finish. Lives up to its reputation. Mansion house, 7.00. Vighals (3978) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2014
Sort med lys brunt tynt skum. Espresso, vanilje og mørke tørker bær. Bitter kaffe og litt salt smak. Kjenner en del kullsyre i denne imp. stouten. Lang salt og bitter ettersmak. arsol (1190) - NORWAY - FEB 12, 2014
Svart med beige skum. Lukter mørkbrent kaffe og svisker. Esprosso kommer godt fram i smak og det er mye kullsyre til en stout å være. MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2014
The aroma is (of course) dominated by roasted coffee, dark chocolate, raisins and licorice. It’s a good beer overall, but it’s got some way to go to the top. Bought at Systembolaget about 6 months ago.
