22 oz bomber that I picked up at the local craft beer store

A- Served in a pint class, this beer pours an opaque black color that has about one finger of tan head. This beer is very thick and viscous and the head dissipates quickly.

S- Coffee aromas are present along with roasted barley and dark chocolate. Awesome nose here.

T- So many complex flavors here. Awesome sweet maltiness with coffee, chocolate, and an incredible roasty nut aftertaste.

M- This beer is full bodied and smooth all the way through. The high ABV is well covered by the many flavors and good deal of sweetness.

O- I really enjoyed this beer. It is a reasonable price, and has a very unique taste. I will have to buy it again.

Had on tap at the Yardhouse in Roseville, CA

Appearance - Served a fair black color with a half finger head. Fair retention. Spotty lacing with little stick.

Smell - Fairly standard stout aroma. Roasted malt with hints of chocolate and coffee character.

Taste - Follows the nose. Predominant roasted malt flavor in the form of coffee. Finishes with light creamy chocolate notes. Fairly simple, straight-forward stout flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium to full in body. Smooth. A bit dry on the finish.

Overall - Good, solid stout. Nothing truly noteworthy, but I'd have no problem drinking it again if there weren't better options available.

Glass: Stout/Porter glass

Appearance: black with a mocha colored head that dissipated quickly.

Smell: Roasted malts, and alcohol mostly.

Taste: Roasted coffee, alcohol, and a slight hint of dark chocolate.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, dry texture, and a dry alcohol finish.

Good average stout, something I would recommend to a beer drinker that is just starting out. This would be a nice mellow introduction to the style. I wouldn't recommend this for anybody who looking for something complex.

Poured from a bottle into a duvel glass.

A: Black to dark brown on the edges. Definitely can not see through it. About a finger of light tan head, with an aggressive pour, which dissipated quickly.

S: Roasty. Malt, dark chocolate, coffee. Probably a dark fruit.

T: Big blast of malt, dark chocolate and coffee. A little bit of chocolate/coffee bitterness.

M: Medium bodied. Easy to drink, almost silky smooth. A little sweet.

Overall this is a good beer. I don't think it's super unique, but nonetheless a solid beer. Definitely recommend trying it.

Two and half fingers of tan head on a black body. The pour had bubbles dancing all over.
The aroma is roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee. Really nice.
The taste starts with a mild bitter, then dark bitter chocolate, a little caramel and finishes with milk. Amazing depth, complexity and development.
Smooth texture with low carbonation and a heavy body.
The taste was perfect and the rest of the beer supported it well.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Black with tan head. One finger head with average lacing. 3.5/5

S: Mainly roasted grain and chocolate. Coffee and some raisin that is a bit hard to find. oSme sort of grassy smell in the background. 4/5

T: Bittersweet roasted malt with a coffee taste. Leaning a bit on the sweet side. Finishes with a bitter coffee taste. The alcohol is not noticable at all. Lighter version of an imperial stout. 4/5

M: Medium body with low carbonation. Finishes wet and a little sticky. 3.5/5

O: Seems to be between a regular stout and an imperial stout. Alcohol is very well hidden. I;m taking off a point because it's a bit pricey and I could spend 1$ more for a much better imperial stout. Grab this if you can get it for cheap. 3/5
