Coffee bomb w coffee, and maybe a little choco. Thick and creamy. Not bitter at all, which is just fine w me. Bottle is prob a year old, so it has mellowed a bit. Not a big fan of coffee stout in a bottle, but I think this is superior to BCBCS, Give me a side of tiramisu

My bottle had a thin wax coating over the cap. Not sure if this is standard, or special.

22 ounce bomber into a snifter.

Wow, the coffee aroma explodes out of the bottle as soon as you uncap it. Dark, dark beer. Pours like oil with no head, almost in defiance. Strong coffee aroma in the glass, dark chocolate also comes through. This is the best coffee flavor I can remember in a beer. I need to find these beans for my morning java. Follows the nose with the coffee and chocolate, a pleasant bitterness in the back end. Thick, rich and smooth on the tongue, tantalizing with each sip.

This is a great beer. There's a lot of good coffee stouts around, but I think this is my favorite. Off to my favorite bottle shop tomorrow to see if there's still one on the shelf. Get it, if you still can.
