Bomber purchased while in Vegas a few weeks ago. I poured this one into my beer goblet. Looks like a bottled on date of 1/31/13 (I think, the month is a little obscured.)

Appearance: Inky black, no question a dark beer. A nice tan one finger head settled after a bit. Pretty good lacing for a higher ABV beer.

Smell: Roast, but not distinctly coffee. Cocoa with loads of dried dark fruit. A bit of booze in the nose.

Taste: Not as round as you might expect. The fruit and roast come through with a bit of the coffee as well. The coffee may have faded being 6 months old. The alcohol is well hidden. The hops impart a bit of a metallic twang, bit minor. The fruit flavors die off a bit too quickly.

Mouthfeel: The flavors coat the mouth easily. The carbonation could be a bit softer. The body of the beer is just right.

Overall: This is an interesting take on a porter. I do note the coffee but, I would not have guessed it had been added while brewing. I would not turn this one down, but I may not seek this one out again either.

Pours a very dark brown with an almost red with a nice foamy tan coloured head.

The smell is coffee, milk chocolate and some dark malts.

The taste is much the same as the smell coffee and milk chocolate. The flavours are more subtle than a lot of coffee beer but still tasty non the less.

The mouthfeel is creamy with medium carbonation.

Overall a decent coffee beer, on the weaker side though. The abv can't be tasted at all.

Appears pitch black, light caramel tan head, aromas is crazy, there is dark chocolate with big robust coffee singing out with hints of vine ripened fruit. Hints of dark cocoa and molasses round out the sweeter decadent aspects of this beer, strong espresso dark coffee roasts. Flavor is layered with creamed coffee, dark nutty roasted malts, caramelized sugars and again a strong molasses presence. The coffee flavors are in line with some of the better coffee beers available, the booze is well hidden and the beer definitely packs a punch. The mouthfeel is medium to full carbonation is flowing nicely a smooth robust finish on this big beer from Idaho, I would definitely pick this up again.

S: Fairly strong coffee note, bready chocolate, malty espresso notes

L: Thick, dark black, tan creamy head that dissipates slightly. Ok lacing.

T: Fresh ground coffee up front with a soft milk chocolate that comes next. Medium low roasty bitterness with a fairly strong espresso note following. Some vanilla with milk chocolate notes into the finish. Finishes with espresso like dryness.

M: Medium full body, medium low carbonation. Not too heavy. Alcohol fairly well hidden.

Pretty solid coffee porter, well balanced with subtle, complex flavors.
