UPDATED: OCT 11, 2010 Served from a 22 oz bottle from Belmont Party Supply in Ohio. The appearance is a dense black with a large deep red hued brown head. Aromas of black malts, anise, and caramel. The flavors are full of caramel, black licorice, a touch of butterscotch, light chocolate, oatmeal. Mouth is nicely carbonated and lightly creamy. Nice stout.

(bottle - 22 oz) Thick black pour with a fluffy tan head. Heavy roasted chocolate aroma with lots of coffee and cream notes and a very lightly smoked end. Rich roasted and burnt malt flavor with a very bitter hoppy middle. Couldn’t really taste any oatmeal but there was a very pleasant smoky finish.

Bomber as a trade extra, consumed at a movie theater so I didn’t get a great look at the appearance, but I can tell you it looked very close to black and there was a massive tan head that repeatedly overflowed the glass and caused a few spills. Excellent aroma. Big roast and coffee with dark chocolate and some obscured piney hop resins. The flavor is also very big - mammoth if you will. Roast, dark chocolate, caramel, and coffee really sock you in the face. The fullness of flavor is close to that of a good imperial stout. Piney hop bitterness on the finish. On the mouthfeel, this is a thick one. Similar to an imperial stout here as well. Carbonation is fairly high yet on the softer side, so it works fairly well. Overall, I really enjoyed this one. Paired well with "Inception."

Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2010
A dry roasted stout with a nice amount of hops in the aroma and flavor. Nothing too sweet about this one. Soft palate and a dry finish. I’d like to try this one again.

Pastor (797) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Bottle split with a friend in tulip glasses’ produced a two finger tan head that lasted a while the color of the brew was atypical stout black I got some good roasted coffee aromas as well as a slight chocolate smell. The flavors of roasted malts were dominant and there was a nice bitter follow up as well. The feel in my mouth was perfect for the style with great carbonation. This brew drank fine I was left wanting for more it was a good session brew and overall a good stout. Serving type: bottle

beernbourbon (1316) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 11, 2010
Bottle. Pour is black with a large brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, light chocolate, light dark fruit, and brown sugar. Flavor is also fairly fruity malt up front with a nice amount of roastiness. Finish is chocolaty with a touch of hop. Really very good. Full bodied, rich, and flavorful.

6.00 / 22 oz. I had a lot of hopes for this one. I can say this doesn’t deliver. This stout could be so much more, but it is just okay. Dry, yes; chocolate, yes; good, sort of. Buckey brewed an inoffensive stout that is not worth talking about.

22oz. bomber, labeled Foreign Stout, with thanks to ogglethorp for the nice bonus. Pours a dirty looking dark brown with a huge and lasting sea foam dark tan head. Aroma is cocoa, chocolate, oats, earthy hops, and a little coffee. Flavor is more cocoa, chocolate, coffee, oats, and more subtle earthy hops and nuts. Not that I’ve had a bunch, but much like other foreign stouts, thanks again Brian!
