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

Pours black with a dark tan head.
Nose shows lots of coffee and roasted grains. Little else showing.
Similar flavours, lots of roasted grains with a little coffee behind it. Again it seems to fall flat rather quick.
Nice creamy carbonation. Body could be a bit thicker.

Pours dark bround with a tan head, nice amount of lacing is left behind, and great head retention. The nose is heavy on coffee roast, carob, anda hint of molasses. There is a hint of roasted malt in there, but it is not pronounced. The taste is similar to the nose with bold and spicy coffee notes with an earthy quality towards the finish of the coffee. Some molasses is present and provides a bit of sweetness. Mouthfeel is light with moderate carbonation. Overall, this iOS a unique coffee infused stout, the coffee shies away from cocoa and chocoalate and gears towards spicy and earthy notes.

Served on tap into a pint glass

A- Poured black with mocha colored head that left lots of splashy lace

S- Huge mocha aroma. Freshly roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, vanilla

T- Big freshly roasted coffee bean notes, dark chocolate, tons of vanilla, caramel, and very bready. The coffee and chocolate flavors are very bold. Lots of sweetness balanced out by a lot of roastiness.

M- Medium body, prickly carbonation, mostly dry finish, pretty creamy, and very easy to drink

O- This is maybe the best stout I have ever had and one of the best beers ever. So amazingly complex, bold, flavorful, aromatic, and drinkable. Reminds me a lot of Oakshire's Overcast Espresso Stout, a personal favorite of mine. I would say the coffee is the star of the show, but there is so much else going on too.

Bomber poured a clear reddish bown with a small lasting creamy tan head. Aromas of caramel, bakers cocoa, light vanilla and light coffee., Mouthfeel was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish which is a little off for a stout. Flavors of bakers cocoa, roasted malt,light coffee and a hint of vanilla with a crisp dry lingering roasted malt finish
