Pours the color of dark tea, with some golden-orange highlights. The head was about a 1/4 of an inch, and then it went away to a trace that stayed with it for the whole thing. On the aroma, there's some nice hickory and cinnamon notes, strong presence of vanilla. This is a tasty beer: more vanilla, sweet caramel, coffee (I'm not sure what beans they used, but it tastes like Maxwell House, back). There's a bit of peppery spice, too, and some raisins. Not too much carbonation, and it's not too thick and sugary, which is what I was fearing. I'd buy another one and drink it with pleasure.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, opaque, hazelnut brown coloring with a fluffy, light, cream-tan colored head that quickly settles into a filmy surface coating. Aromas of roasted nut and chocolate forward, with hints of vanilla and cinnamon in the backbone, as well as a subtle roasted bitter coffee character. Nicely blended and inviting nose. Flavors are roasted forward, with a hazelnut mocha coffee blend all over the palate. Some bittersweet chocolate highlights, as well as subtle vanilla and woody notes. The cinnamon is there, but kind of takes a backseat to the other flavors. The body is light and dry, with a roasted sweet mocha and nut aftertaste. The finish is slick, clean, and dry. Solid representation of the style, with a well balanced, big palate. Nice brew.

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

Bomber poured into a tulip glass.

A: Beautiful rich dark brown color. In the light it appears a mahogany, ruby color. Three finger tan head with an aggressive pour. Looks wonderful in the glass. Great creamy lacing follows through.
S: First nose I get a great amount of coffee and chocolate. Smells like a sweet stout, not overly sweet though. Definite cinnamon and roasted malt, but they play a backseat to the coffee and cocoa nibs. I can get a small hint of vanilla after several whiffs and swirls of the glass.
T: More vanilla here that creates a creaminess. Strong chocolate and coffee with a cinnamon spice that is a great compliment. Everything melds well.
MF: A bit thin though very silky smooth. Everything blends pretty well throughout the beer.
O: This is excellent. And with some age these flavors really work together. This was one of my favorite beers of the year thus far. The only thing I wish was different was a fuller mouthfeel. But, this isn't a stout...not really sure what category I would put it in actually. Great beer though!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a clear cola color capped by an inch or two of foam; a decent lacer

Smell: Brown bread, mocha, cinnamon and vanilla

Taste: Mocha and cinnamon, up front, with the brown bread flavors building in the background; by mid-palate, the vanilla appears and the coffee becomes more pronounced, though the finish is rather grainy

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Certainly flavorful, and I can see why some like this beer; for my palate, it is a bit too sweet and I am not loving the way the flavors come together
