Poured from a 2012 Bomber into a snifter glass. Second time having this awesome beer.
A: Pours extremely dark brown, very opaque. Very little light getting through this. Almost non exist dark khaki head. Does provide some nice lacing and alcohol legs.
S: This is where this beer shines the most IMO. Air freshener. Could smell this all day, esp once it warms up. Getting strong vanilla and coffee aromas along coco powder. Some of the roasted malts shinning through as well. Great aroma, really opens once it warms up a bit.
T: Taste strong in the categories advertised. Vanilla Coffee with a hint of what I can only describe as chalky chocolate (in a good way). Smooth as hell and delicious. Some slight alcohol taste pokes through.
M: Full bodied, and sweet on the tongue. Bit of a alcohol burn on the finish.
O: Fantastic beer. Loving every sip and a must try for any stout/coffee fan.
Serving type: bottle
