Draft at the brewpub. A pitch black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes fo roasted malt and expresso coffee. The flavor is sweet with notes of expresso beans, and medium notes of medium roasted coffee beans, as well as hints of wood, leading to a dry bitter coffee finish.

Bomber from ericandersnavy. Thanks man. Pours very black, though the stream from the bottle had ruby aspects. 3-finger foamy tan head. Aroma is very strong coffee, with a hint of chocolate. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is very smooth coffee, with a hint of smoke, and I’d say definite dark chocolate. Finishes coffee bitter. So where’s the Big Shot Latte? Good stuff!

Bomber. Pours a very dark brown with a medium creamy light tan head that leaves good sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a roasted malt with coffee and chocolate. Thin mouthfeel with a dry malt and roast. Easy to drink, a good sweet stout from Twisted Pine.

Dogbrick (13547) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Sample at the 5th Annual Coldest Day of the Year Stout Tasting on 01/26/2013: The beer pours jet black with a medium beige head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and subtle coffee. Light to medium body with a roasty character consisting of malt and coffee, plus a bit of chocolate. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Decent overall.
