22 oz. bomber, listed as 6%,

A: Pours black with a small fizzy off-white head, good retention, light lacing.

S: Nice sweet chocolate and mocha coffee, light licorice. Hint of acidity.

T: Dark chocolate mixes with sweet creamed coffee, almost seeming like a milk stout at times, but it has more of a roasted bitterness undercurrent than that style. Bit of sour dark fruit, currant perhaps.

M: Light/medium body, mild acidity, low carbonation, smooth.

D: A real nice stout from the guys at Alpine, just wish I could get it up here, would be a solid session beer. Quite enjoyable.

I hadn't seen this one before so I picked up a bottle to try out. Shared with a few local BAs yesterday.

A: The pour is a nice dark, dark brown with a small tan colored head.

S: The smell is coffee, roasted malt, and just a touch of chocolate.

T: The flavors are a bit more impressive than the nose. Plenty of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and a bit of sweet malt as well.

M: The body is medium, maybe a bit on the thing side, and there is a moderate amount of carbonation.

D: This is a nice, easy drinking stout. A good stout to have that's better than your run of the mill Guiness, but not a big ol' monster of a beer either.

On tap. Pours black, especially to my eyes in a dark setting. Creamy, tight, lasting head. Random lacing. Smell is pretty potent. The good old blend of roast and chocolate. Smell is dry and I don't think it will be too sweet. Flavor is a good ol' American Stout. Some black coffee and baker's chocolate. Dry as I expected it to be. I really enjoyed the simplicity. Boom! Stout to the face. A good non-imperial Stout to boot. Creamy feel. Fuller than the ABV would suggest. A good pint. I like being able to slurp a Stout that isn't 15% nowadays.

Bottle shared by Lunch. Overall a decent stout (from my notes). Beer is black with a tan head, some lacing, low to moderate carbonation. Looks like a beer.

Aroma is roasty and a little sweet overall weak aroma.

Beer is medium to light in body, moderate malt flavor up front, no hops to speak of, moderate bitterness and roast at the back, not a dry finish. Overall a decent average American stout. Pretty good.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip

A. Dark brown/black and very opaque. A light khaki color 2 finger head.

S. A pleasant roasted malt aroma with some coffee and chocolate afternotes.

T. Nice and smooth. You get the roasted malt and chocolate but it's a nice subtle flavor with a coffee back end. If a stout could be sessionable this is it.

M. Light bodied for a stout. Light carbonation.

O. A nice stout. Not your thick stout but it's very drinkable. Nice smooth flavor. Would drink again.

Appearance: Pours a dark brown color that appears almost black in the glass, with deep plum highlights. About 1" of light tan head forms, that has decent retention, and average lacing. 3.5

Smell: Smells of dark malts, roast, chocolate, and lighter scents of coffee. Not a lot of hop character, but the roast character is nice.

Taste: A moderate amount of roast, chocolate, and coffee. A nice creamy smoothness to the flavor in this beer. Again, not a lot of hop character to balance, but there is some in there.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Light to medium in body, with a great amount of carbonation. Very smooth and creamy. Overall, a good stout. Nice roast character and nicely integrated flavors. I enjoyed this quite a bit.

A-Nice bubbly pour, but very little lacing and almost no head.

S-Like iced oatmeal cookies, with a little coffee in there. More liek decaf though, from 7-11. Under the right circumstances, this is not a bad thing.

T-Tastes like it smells, with a nice spiced oatmeal flavor, and some chocolate/toffee notes.

M-Falls a bit short here, if only because the body is thin. Good carbonation though.

D-This is actually what I look for in stouts--a bit of coffee, a bit of chocolate, and sessionability. I think i could knock down a few of these around the fire and be satisfied. Good stuff.
