a: very very dark brown body. three finger mocha colored head that lasts forever before settling into a quarter inch foam cap. good amount of sticky lacing left behind.

s: cold coffee, chocolate, oak, vanilla and toffee.

t: coffee and chocolate at first, then slowly fades to sweet malts with a warming alochol finish.

m: thick, rich and sticky. full body with a great creamy texture and excellent carbonation.

o: this beer embodies everything i love about stouts. i have nothing bad to say about this.

Dark black inkiness with a dark tan head, as expected. The smell starts setting it apart. Alcohol burn, cold espresso, chocolate, vanilla, burnt malts. A fine permutation on an excellent stout to begin with. Let it warm, see what happens. Dark chocolate flavors abound, coffee becomes more apparent. The oak aging starts to come out, the finish is of dark roast.

Serve this at room temperature, I urge you.

Bomber from Platinum Liquor, poured into a Triple Karmeliet tulip glass.

Lovely thick pour, resulting in a jet black beer with a solidly rocky head of tan foam on top. About three fingers of foam that adds a touch of spotty lacing as it falls down to sit at about a centimetre.

Solid hop presence on the nose, along with caramel and toffee from the base beer. Some roasted coffee as well. Not getting a lot of the oak presence in this, however.

Taste has a good blend of coffee and hop flavour. The hops are first, along with some caramel in the middle and the coffee backs it up at the end.

Mouthfeel is very good, perhaps a little more carbonation than the older Yeti i drank recently. Smooth throughout and some bite at the end with the hops and coffee.

On another winner here, very good all round beer. Not as good as the base beer in my opinion, but still a fantastic stout that combines drinkability with plenty of flavour and plenty for a hop head to get excited about.
