Pours dark brown color with tan head. Aromas of roasted malts and chocolate. Burnt malt flavor with some bittersweet chocolate. Medium body with soft carbonation. Too burnt and ashy tasting for me.

22oz bottle, shared with Kevin during Spring Break 2012 in Siesta Key. Nice, thin light brown head. Good lace. Nice, rich sweet taste. A little bit of bitter. Very light carbonation, easy to drink. Reasonably dry texture. Nice, hearty, toasted malt and chocolate aroma. Slightly sticky, thicker texture. Very enjoyable, great to wash a sandwich down with.

From notes. First reviewed 1/31/2012. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a pint glass. The beer itself pours a dark chocolate brown color with a soft ruby tint in the corner of my pint glass. A small foamy tan head forms on the pour, fading to a small film and a ring that clings to the edges of the glass. The aroma is pleasant, simple, and smooth. Milk and dark chocolate, flaked oats, and a little bit of coffee. The flavor generally follows the aroma, with a smooth and gentle flavor. Up front the flavor has a milk chocolatey sweetness and a dark chocolate bitterness that evolves over the sip. This bitterness blends with the oats to form the malt presence, develops a bit of coffee flavor, and finally turns to a soft, general earthy bitterness at the end. The finish is slightly bitter and has a bit of chocolate left. This drinks a little bit bigger and thicker than the modest 4.7% ABV would indiciate. The carbonation has a smooth creaminess that is partially interrupted by more vigorous bubbles. This unfortunately named, since I found it to be more of an average Oatmeal Stout than something truly out of the ordinary.

Bomber from Liz. Pours very dark brown/black with some large tan bubbles. Aroma of chocolate and smooth burnt malt. Near full bodied. Flavor is lightly smokey, darkly milk chocolate, earthy burnt malt. It’s sort of earthy/gritty. Finishes on a bitter note. Love Fuggles.

Bottle sampled during the Coldest Day of the Year Stout Tasting on 1/21/12. Black pour with a medium tan head. Sweet aroma of chocolate and vanilla. Malty flavor with a hint of green olive before a roasty finish.

Got as an extra in a trade. Pours black with a Dark brown hue when held in the light, with a deep tan head. Smells chocolaty with hints of espresso as it warms. Flavor is fairly hoppy, nice roast and chocolate malt, dry finish with possibly some smoky elements. Above Average, but I like an Oatmeal stout to be an Oatmeal Stout.

Dogbrick (7996) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2012
Sample at the 4th Annual Coldest Day of the Year Stout Tasting on 01/21/2012: This brew is an opaque black color with a medium thin tan head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing. The aroma consists of roasted malt and coffee. Medium-bodied (actually a little on the thin side) with flavors of chocolate, roasted malt and mild coffee. The finish is malty with a short and faint hops aftertaste. Just alright overall.

PorterPounder (5485) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Orlando, Fl - Whole Foods - 22 oz bomber. Pours black as tar with a thin off-white colored head - not much lacing. Aroma has some chocolate, hints of marshmallows, a faint trace of fruitiness. Flavor has some black dirt earthiness, a hint of chocolate, some black coffee. Flavor turns a bit metallic near the end. Mouthfeel has nice lacticity to it. A tad underwhelming, but not bad.
