22oz brown bomber - no bottled on/best by date, purchased at Leary's Fine Wine (http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/2678) on 10/14/09, drank on 10/15/09. Vigorous pour into a tulip produces a light tan 1 finger head, dissipates to leave a very thin tan head over a black body. Huge coffee, black malt nose. Coffee dominates the taste followed closely by those dark roasted malts, surprisingly sweet with just a hint of espresso like astringency. Very smooth, medium/full body, mild carbonation. A very tasty coffee beer, one of my new favorites, great for breakfast or dessert, I will be buying this again.

A - This beer is very dark. When held to the light only a faint ruby glow is perceptible. It is topped with a couple inches of tan head. There is a little lacing.
S - I smell some coffee, but it is not strong at all. There really isn't much else.
T - I get a some coffee and roasted malt. There is a mildly bitter finish.
M - Medium with low carbonation.
O - Full disclosure: this beer has two things working against it. This is my second beer of the evening. The first was a Peruvian Morning with huge coffee smell and taste. This beer lacks compared but still has its own merits. Second, this bottle was purchased in Massachusetts about ten months ago. I may have held on to it for too long. It is decent but not as good as the score indicates. i will revisit given the opportunity for a fresher bottle and a cleaner palate.
