Bomber poured into a pint glass

A: Deep opaque brown with a mocha head. No lacing to be seen but good head retention!

S: Deep coffee and chocolate! Smells fantastic! Smells like some fancy coffee drink but better because of the malt at the end.

T: Deep rick roasted coffee cover the whole mouth with hints of semi sweet chocolate, orange, prune, fig , and currant. Slight hop and malt on the finish! Taste great

M: Medium body with good carbonation. Goes down really smooth but thins out as it warms making it have some what of a stale coffee flavor later in the beer but nothing to really make it bad!

O: Great coffee beer! Most coffee beers i have had just have hints of it but this one brings it front and center! Great mix of coffee chocolate and dark fruit also sets this apart and keeps it from being a one dimensional coffee beer! Little disappointed at the weird thinning as warmed but still a great brew!

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a pint glass. Pours a brownish black with a two finger head. The first note to hit the nose is the cocoa. There is hint of coffee in the background. I like that it isn't over whelming. There is a nice amount of malt that enhances the flavor going down. A very good brown ale. I will be drinking this one again.

On tap at the Lost Abbey Brewery in San Marcos.

Pours black with a good beige head that soon reduces to a ring and partial coat but leaves some lacing.

Aroma: mostly coffee with a faint malt base.

Flavor: coffee overwhelms the dark malts, but it is rather good coffee.

Feel: medium body; medium carbonation.

O: recommended for coffee lovers
