Bomber from Made In Oregon. Pours dark brown with a 4 finger foamy/creamy tan head. Itís Alive! Aroma is chocolate/anise. Med body. Flavor is chocolate/anise/coffee. With time there might be some oak astringency, but itís subtle. Overall this is a standard stout with non-standard flavor levels. It finishes chocolate/coffee, and it is quite delicious. Not exactly a bitter finish, but fairly so.

Bomber. Pours a pitch black color with a huge firm beige head. The aroma is big super sweet malts, licorice, toffee, vanilla. A nice flavor: dark fruit, toffee, ash, licorice, some metal. Pretty smooth. Good.

Bottle:   Thatís not good when you pour a beer and you get more foam than liquid.   Huge light beige head, foamy, otherwise nearly black.   Somewhat decent lacing... but is that because its overcarbonated or infected?   Dark chocolate and roasted malts on the nose.   Oh... each sip results in a foaming in the mouth.   Apple skin, roasted malts, dark chocolate, and coffee on the tongue.   Its a bit hard to get over the extreme foaminess of this beer.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, albeit very very spritzy!   Not really getting any licorice or vanilla with this.   Seems to be a straight forward stout that is either over carbonated or is on its way to a major infection.   Lingering sour apple skin, charred wood, campfire, and super dark chocolate.   Perhaps I sat on this too long (6 months +).

Dark black color with foamy tan lacing. Large roasted coffee aroma. Medium full body that is very smooth without too bitter of a finish. Vanilla ice cream?

Named after a kayaking spot, or something. Possibly in the ocean, or on the Willamette River. Doesnít matter, the beer is the star here. A thick, rich, delicious Stout. It tastes exactly as it should.

chicowv (455) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Sample tasting at brewery: Pours dark but not black with a light head. Aroma is of roasted and chocolate malts. Taste is chocolate, bitter with a good malty balance. Slightly thin, bubbly and good flavor. Nice and mellow with a lingering bitter.

Mild aroma with a slighly sweet taste. Very pleasant on the palette. I would definitely recommend trying this one.

Reid (1899) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 24, 2012
22oz bottle from "Lifesource" Salem. $4.99 Blackest of black body with a nice thick,frothy tan head. Aroma is surprisingly fruity at first,berries maybe blackberries, then you get vanilla and semi-dark roast coffee. Taste is similar but more roasty..its very smooth and almost creamy. Mouth-feel for style is actually quite light, but thatís not a bad thing. I enjoyed this stout very nice stuff

black with light brown head. Aroma of coffee and cookie dough. Slightly sweet cookie with coffee flavor, medium-to-full body, rounded flavor, nice roast. Good beer!
