Pours dark black/brown into english pint glass with 1 finger head. Nose is coffee, cocao, chocolate cake, dirt. Mouthfeel is medium body, slightly sticky. Taste is chocolate, coffee, cream, roasty, earthy, maple, caramel. Finish has mild bitterness and some light hop notes. A solid stout. Would love to see a coffee, chocolate, or barrel aged version to enhance some of whats already there.

At a tasting, thanks zvikar, very dark brown to black, aroma of coffee, very dark bread, some woodiness and a touch of milk chocolate, dominant flavour of roasted coffee with some cherries, light bodied but quite balanced. Very nice.

Drank from a snifter, Medium body, and slightly roasty. This was a very nice stout. I generally drink IMP stouts, and this should not be confused with one. Very smooth and tasty.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks zvikar. Black, not opaque, with a light brown head. Nice roasty aroma with a bit of coffee and light dark chocolate notes. Pleasant bittersweet roasty flavor with some coffee. Medium-bodied.

Bomber (after climbing Beech Mountain with the family). Pours a deep brown with a large tan head of foam. Aromas are nice and stouty... Roasted malts, licorice, a bit of charcoal and a hint of cream. Flavor is similar, but a little thin lots of licorice and leather. I wish the mouthfeel was a little fuller, but this is a very nice stout.

Bottle from Brewtopia. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Roasted chocolate malt on the nose. The chocolate on the tongue is ice up front but it fades a bit as the beer warms. Nice amount of bitterness on the finish to keeps things tight.

Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts. The taste has a dry finish but doesn’t make you run for a glass of water like most. Smooth mouthfeel and proper carbonation. A great representation of the style.
