A: Dark and then some more dark. Poured with a bit of head but it goes down to almost none. Perhaps it was too cold. S: Smells like a brown but there are some definite coffee hints in there. It almost smells like a porter. Very good. T: Wow! Some malt hits you as well as the chocolate tones. Dark chocolate really that mixes nicely with the maltiness. Mmmm. There is a bit of bitterness in there too. But wow, the chocolate flavors out of this are awesome! This is probably the best brown Iíve ever had. Iíll be sad when I canít buy this one anymore. M: Creamy, silky, with a bit of bitter almost cola like feel all at the same time. Awesome! D: this one is a sipper obviously from the high ABV but I could sip on this all night long. I might have to buy a few of these to get me through winter! Overall: If you can find this buy it. Well worth a try! This is one of the better beers Iíve had lately.

Nice! Dark brown pour with a white head. Nice malty nutty flavor with a very smooth mouthfeel. And the large size bottle is a good value!

Bomber Bottle. Pours a dark coffee color, very little head on a good pour. The aroma is very faint, with just a hint of chocolate and very little else. Iíll start by simply saying the flavor and mouthfeel combination is superb, probably my favorite brew from Breckenridge. At the beginning, itís nutty, chocolate, earthy taste is quite strong. It slowly and quite smoothly fades into a malty and quiet finish. The carbonation isnít too active, and the mouthfeel in incredibly silky.

Courtesy of Santa. <!-- P --> Aroma is rich and malty with lots of nutty notes and some mild chocolate aroma. Body is dark brown and holds a thumb thick tan head. Flavor is pretty nice. Solidly a brown ale, but the intensity is upped so that the lightly roasted malts, nuttiness and mild chocolate notes youíd get in your average heavier brown ale are all much more concentrated here. I think this one is getting a bad rap. I thought it was damn nice.

Actually really enjoyed this one. Aroma of cookie, brown sugar, and molasses. Creamy off white head with fair lacing. Dark brown amber color. Moderately sweet finish with slightly acetic finish. Medium bodied with an oily texture.

In the bomber bottle at the 2009 Crescent Moon Summer Beer Festival. An odd name because this beer is mighty black. However, it is mighty good. This has an intense maltiness that totally pushes the limits of "brown" ale. Simply a great beer. Chicory, licorice and anise. Heavy syrup and molasses. Thick, rich and delicious.

Dark brown pour, off white fluffy head. A nice caramel malty aroma, and more in the taste with some chocolate flavor thrown in. A nice and enjoyable brown ale.

This was a great little brown ale. Honey sweet aroma that is almost borderline nutty. Some tasty chocolate notes, along with a malt profile that is reminscent of honey roasted peanut butter, spread over some dark wheat bread, with the smallest bit of fruitiness on the side. Tasty!

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized light chocolate colored bubbles that was mostly lasting and left behind a semi-opaque dark red brown colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was malty and brown malt. The mouth feel was smooth at the start and mediumly tingly at the finish. The yummy flavor contained notes of hops caramel brown malt and chocolate. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2009 Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. The aroma is loaded with roasted nuttiness alond with some light chocolate. The beer pours a transparent reddish-brown with a minimal off-white ring for a head. The flavor starts with moderate nuttiness with some faint burnt flavors. There are hints of sweet chocolate throughout. Thereís minimal bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is a tad flat and thin. A decent Brown Ale. 6-3-7-3-14 (3.3)

Re-Rate: I figured Iíd re-rate this since I bought it thinking I hadnít tried it before. After the first sip, Iím figuring the beer has improved in three years or I have a fresher bottle. The aroma is a nice combination of roasted nuts and chocolate. Thereís a slight hint of caramel in there too. It pours a transparent mahogany, with a one inch head that fades to a thin film after a minute or so. The flavor starts with some roasted nuttiness and some light caramel. The chocolate is much more pronounced than my previous rating and the sweetness of the chocolate really becomes more pronounced in the finish. It leaves a pleasant chocolate and roasted nut aftertaste. Medium bodied with mild carbonation and soft mouthfeel. A 3.3 beer usually means the beer is okay, but I wouldnít purchase again unless itís on tap and Iím strapped for choices. However, having purchased this thinking Iíd never had it before, I canít say I regret it. Certainly no world beater, but pretty tasty and a "session" beer that I wouldnít mind seeing in 6-packs. Iím using "session beer" rather loosely as it is 7.5% ABV, but it feels/tastes like a session beer.
