look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Bomber poured into 16oz snifter.

A - Pitch black body, thin off white head. Solid lacing.

S - Totally amazing, chocolate milk powder (think yoo Hoo) with a super slight touch of coffee.

T - All of the notes from the nose sharpen/bitter up. Major notes of coffee bitterness and cocoa powder.

M - Rich, creamy and smooth.

O - Total steal at $4.25, delicious coffee beer.

Served from a bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance: Very dark and earthy coloration. Very slight wine red color on the edge. Head maxed out at about 1.5 fingers for me and dissipated quickly. Left an almost coffee like foam at the top. Splotchy lacing.

Smell: Heavy notes of dark roast coffee. I also picked up some brown sugar and chocolate deep into the aroma, but coffee is dominant here. Toasted malts and nuts come into play, but in a very subtle manner.

Taste: The caffeine and alcohol is strong with this one! Immediately my mouth felt like I had just taken a hot shot of espresso with the presence of coffee and alcohol at the forefront. The alcohol was a bit heavy for my taste, but not enough to make the beer unpleasant. Surprisingly I also picked up some maraschino cherry towards the middle. The after taste is a good balance of coffee and bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Very thick and lighter on the carbonation. Not exactly slimy, but the beer definitely coats your mouth mechanisms like oil.

Overall: I enjoyed this one despite the alcohol tinge. This is my first coffee stout so I hope to try some more soon. I would consider a re-purchase for sure. Definitely recommend giving this one a try.
