2012 Bomber poured into a snifter.
A: Pours like you'd expect an imperial stout to. Dark, viscous, and opaque. Very little head or lacing this one. No head retention to speak of.
S: Strong boozy smell, with not as much coffee as I'd expect on the aroma. Coco hints come through as well. I can almost smell the froth, but that's probably more to do with the marketing than anything.
T: For such a boozy smell I'm pleasantly surprised as this beer hides the 9% well. Getting a chocolate coffee smell (shocking I know) with some nice maltyness to it. Very slight bitter dry finish.
M: Smooth on the palate and very drinkable for such a high alcohol beer. Sweet residue sticks on the mouth long after swallowing. Coffee feel/burn/taste on the palate sticks around from some time as well.
O: Easy drinking imperial stout, that's highly enjoyable. It lacks on the aroma and appearance but makes up for it on the taste and mouthfeel. I'll probably pick another or 2 up, and for the price you really can't beat it.

A: Black. It's pretty black. Light can barely pass through it. Nice 2-finger tan head leaves nice lacing on the glass.
S: Lots of chocolate and roasted malt. Smells tasty. Slightly sweet with smooth milk chocolate and coffee. Touch of booze.
T: Just like the nose, the creamy chocolate is upfront and fades into the rich dark malts. Towards the back, the coffee is slightly robust and bitter, as it is accompanied by a mild amount of hops. Very well balanced. . . And there's the booze. The alcohol lingers more on the tongue as it warms up.
M: Very creamy. Maybe even a little chewy. Pretty much what I would expect from a stout.
O: I really liked this coffee stout. Lagunitas has always been a reliable brewery and a go-to for me. This a pretty good coffee stout, maybe not the best, but definitely worth trying. Especially since a bomber of it is only about five dollars. I recommend it!
