4.14/5  rDev +4.3%

Bomber $ 9.99 at Vintage Estates, Boardman, OH
Undated bottle at 40 degrees into imperial pint glass
Aroma of coffee, coffee, and coffee
Head small (1.5 cm), light brown, creamy, slowly diminishing to 2 mm ring.
Lacing good – partial rings and stalactites of tiny bubbles
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor of coffee; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium to full, creamy, lively carbonation

Tastes like a light coffee – no gastric burn after drinking it. Smooth and creamy like a porter, good aroma and appearance. At 6.2 % the alcohol isn’t very high, but still cannot be smelled or tasted.

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Black as espresso beans with a mocha colored head that calms to a wisp with light watery lacing.

Aroma: Dark roasted malts, coffee grounds, dark chocolate.

Taste: Much like the aroma, bitter coffee and dark chocolate dominate. A nice roasted body with a tang of hops in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Fairly dry.

Overall: A lot of great coffee flavors in this, another great beer from Hoppin' Frog.

A - Dark muddy brown with caramel and ruby highlights. Thin off-white head settles into a thick halo with great retention, but poor lace.

S - Dry bitter chocolate, chipotle, dry coffee grinds, toasted bread crumbs.

T - Dry, smooth and well integrated. Medium roast coffee, toasted rye brad, dusty char, cocoa powder, and a touch of caramel sweetness. Mineral finish.

M - Medium-light body. Great finish: dry with nice legs.

O - Smooth, fantastic, roasty coffee flavor.

Dark black, completely opaque. Thin sand colored head.

Smells like my great grandma's kitchen - cheap, strong coffee lingering over bread and a host of other unidentifiable scents. I guess that's a compliment.

Taste of roasted malt with notes of vanilla and berry. Black coffee aftertaste.

Quite smooth, though a little watery.

Coffee is present in the scent and taste but not particularly strong. More like a porter with coffee notes rather than a "coffee porter." I strongly prefer this to the regular silk porter. More intricate tastes and lives up to the silk in the name better.
