A - Clear very dark brown with a big short-lived whitish/tan head. Little lacing.

S - Big smokiness, chocolate, dark malts, earthy.

F/M - Dark bitter chocolate, quite roasty and very smoky. Actually reminiscent (slightly) of bacon... but maybe that's just a testament to the power of suggestion. Full bodied with medium carbonation. Dry finish and slightly astringent.

D - Smoky, roasty and astringent. OK, but not more than half of a bottle (shared by Dankbeers619. Thanks!)

Bottle from Perry's Liquor in Livermore, CA

A - Poured a black color with a brown head that leaves lacing behind

S - Is of nice smoked malt with a strong coffee presence

T - Like the nose starts out nice and smokey then the coffee come on strong and bitters things up

M - This beer has a medium body with pretty high carbonation to it

O - As a lover of smoked beers and a person that has to be in the right mood for a coffee beer this one works out really well for me I'm enjoying the blend of flavors probably couldn't drink more than the bomber in a sitting but its still very good and worth trying if you like smoked beers
