An inky, almost gritty looking black beer, with a pretty espresso-colored head, nice looker. Fantastic smells, tons of coffee and roast goodness. Serious coffee here, good stuff. On the palette is more gourmet coffee, dark baker chocolate, roasted grains, very little sweetness, subtle hops prescense. Lingering coffee dryness and touch of noble hops. Very, very good. The rare beer that seems suitedfor breakfast, body is medium full, and the carbonation is active, low ABV too boot.

A gem in the heart of Colorado. Awesome beer.

Holy crap! Wow, coffee much!? This is the stout that I've always wanted when I've purchased or tried anything that says 'coffee' on it. They seem to have put as much as you possibly can in this without over doing it. Very skillful.

A - Black. Long lasting tan head. Looks like a cup of espresso!
S - COFFEE
T - COFFEE. Sweet. Dry. Toasted bread. not super complex or anything, but has a full range of coffee. The coffee certainly dominates, but that's the point.
M - Clean
D - Good! I guess I could have another pint.

22oz Bomber from Grapes and Grain in Denver, CO. Bought off a recommendation.

Labeled on BA as an American Stout, but I think its a milk stout based on the bottle description and the taste is kinda of between the two. Warmed to about 50 degrees before opening. Poured in to MSU pint glass (in preparation for the U of M v MSU game this weekend). Paired with ...

A&S: Excellent smell. Pungent with large quantities of chocolate complemented by roasty qualities. Almost smells like a cold brewed mocha. Jet black beer. Thick lines of light tan lacing. Good retention on the head.

T&M: Strikes a nice balanced between sweet and bitter. Very sweet chocolate upfront which fades to roasty midway and finishing bitter, but still refreshing. Quite smooth and silky as far as mouthfeel.

Overall: Impressed by this beer, would buy again. Look forward to trying more from this brewery. Surprisingly low abv, but would work as a great breakfast beer. I probably not the smartest idea to consume this after 11pm, hopeful the amount of caffeine in this beer doesn't keep me up too late.

Interesting side note: I pour a 8oz taster of this beer for my gf, pouring the end of the beer. Not only was it very different in taste and mouthfeel, but also look. I would be wary of this if you are dividing this beer between two people.
