Pipper (325) - Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2009
Donated by Buckeye Brewing to ALS Beer Dinner Benefit. The label is different now than the picture provided and I think is improved. Pours a nice black brown with strong coffee brown head. Musty, malty, toasted and slight coffee yumminess in both aroma and flavor. Smooth over the palate but not coating, a little bit of bite from the bitter coffee aftertaste.

On tap at The Beer Engine. Pours pitch black with a one finger tan head. The nose is roasted malt, ashy cocoa and light coffee. The taste is dark chocolate, ash, burnt malt and bitter coffee grounds in the finish. Medium semi-creamy mouthfeel. Good stout.

thick black appearance with tan head. moderate carbonation for style, wonderful roasty and sweet nose. some thickness to the moutfeel, but a lighter finish for the style. flavor has some bitterness initially followed by only mild malt sweetness, that could have added depth, some roastiness, but not overwhelming before a lot of floral hop flavor before a dry finish. a nice beer, a higher finisher gravity and some more sweetness and roasty flavors could have added some complexity and improved the beer

GMUcrew7 (576) - Mason, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2009
22 oz bomber, the label is in black and white and says "Mammoth Stout" with Foreign Stout below the name, not sure if it is the same brew or not. Beautiful pour, dark black with a booming tan head that lasts and leaves behind nice lacing on my glass. Aroma of oatmeal, milk, coffee and semi-sweet chocolate. Nice bitter roasted coffee flavor. Good beer at a fair price.

Descent stout overall. Nice level of roast with a descent body. Some nice ticher malts are there but not too powerful. Enjoyable.

This has been sitting around for a while so I figured I would give it a chance. At $4.99 I had nothing to lose - Buckeye seems to price their bombers very well compared to many other companies. It deserves a little bump for being solid and affordable thus the high score.

Aroma / Appearance - The murky brownish/black body and thin tan head provide a medium for the black coffee, licorice, smoke, and cocoa that escape from the glass. Solid and creamy I like the way it presents itself.

Flavor / Palate - Smoke, black coffee, and dry toast smeared with Nutella fill the mouth. The strong roasted finish completes a solid well made beer. While there are several that are better none can compete on price with this.
