Bomber. Batch #37. First impression is that it smells like bourbon county coffe. Well as much coffee, maybe not as much bourbon. But as close as it gets to a perfect coffee stout. Taste, although still good, is a bit of a letdown. Mild chocolate, sweet bourbon, coffee (which worked much better on the aroma) and bitter vanilla. Average to maybe on the tho side for such a big beer.

Batch #45
Started out ok - but as it got warmer the taste diminished greatly and the alcohol took over.

Draft, taster glass

A – Very deep brown to lighter black. Seems pretty clear. Tan head, fairly low retention.

S – Strong coffee aroma, hard to find much else here. A bit of vanilla and a touch oak, molasses.

T – Strong espresso, a touch of vanilla, some sweet molasses. A nice touch of bitterness, seems to be from the roasted malts.

M – Residual sweetness with a nice roasty bite. Light to moderate carbonation.

O – Prominent coffee and dark malts with lots of barrel character. This beer seems to be exactly what it wants to be.
