We had three 22 oz bombers bottled during the very beginning of 2015, 2016 & 2017. (The 2018 had not come out just yet)

The three-year-old was much settled down in it's liveliness and had very little coffee aroma/flavor left; yet there were subtle notes of molasses and brown sugar in the flavor.
The two-year-old had more life to it, but was not quite as complex as the three year-old; this one edged out the others as my favorite, because there was some complexity, some liveliness, and a nice mouthfeel to it.
The one-year-old has the most life, yet not any complexity probably due to the strong coffee/roasted/hoppy character overshadowing the other flavors.

I'm glad I cellared these beers, but I don't plan to do it again as there was not enough complexity to justify the time I held onto them.

Movie night brew with Leah. Nice sharp bite to this one! I felt it was well balanced. Drank from a 22oz bottle. Had some zing to it that I was not expecting!

Thanks to stardusthotel83 for this 22 oz. of extra, the last beer from our swap.

The pour is black & the head hangs around like something mounted for quite a while. Nose brings gentle coffee, lactose, touch of acrid air.

Cappuccino Stout - it is. Super balanced, which isn’t a compliment around here. I always thought cappuccino was supposed to be strong, & while this has some roast & bitter, burnt acridity, it prances closer to ‘thin’ than ‘strong’. Bit of raisin creamer, & I believe someone must have said the word ‘chocolate’ while the beer was being brewed. Half the bomber is plenty.

The very definition of a mediocre beer.

It pours a dark brown close to black yielding the same color body. A one inch foamy off-white/tan head appears and lasts for a good minute before slowing dieing into the body of my nonic. Some nice spotty appears and gently slides to the bulb of the nonic pint. The smell has the cappuccino coffee up front with some roasty malts in the background covered by some light chocolate notes, wow, really impressive. The taste is bittersweet between the cappuccino coffee and the chocolate and malts, awesome balance between the two. The palate is about a medium to heavy perhaps due to the fairly high ABV. Its not exactly a very drinkable beer, but no worries, it just fits its style very well. It still coats the tongue and mouth very smoothly. Overall, this is an excellent beer.

Look: motor oil black with a thick dark beige head. The lacing is beautifully tight and the retention is infinite. It has the consistency of whole milk.
Smell: Earthy oak notes with a dark coffee aroma combined with the sweet smell of maple syrup.
Taste: Notes of chocolate, caramel, bourbon with a malt character that is wintery, nutty, and woody. There are hints of sweetness and the aftertaste is
