Review of 2014 version, approximately 1 month old. Poured 22oz Bomber into a snifter. Poured a thick dark black, with a thin khaki head. Nose was a roasted coffee blast with sweet vanilla, caramel and toffee undertones. When cold, strong coffee flavor present, but as it warms vanilla, oak and bourbon burn took over. Caught a hint of raisin and cherry in its sweetness. Mouthfeel was full, but not syrupy. Overall a very enjoyable beer. Very complex, but a step below the "greats".

Often overlooked but an extremely solid coffee stout in my opinion. Well worth the purchase if you come across it. Great coffee and bourbon mixed nose. Taste was creamy, a bit of bitterness from the coffee, vanilla and sweetness from the barrel and no booziness.
