Dark brown color/ lasting brown foam. Dry black malt, toasted dark oat, chicory coffee aromas. Smooth mouthfeel. Medium roasted malt, dark bread, biscuit, light roast chicory coffee flavors--good.

Bottle pours a black brew with a thin tan/brown head. Scent is roasty and coffee. Taste is a quicky fading roasty pop then nothing with a sweet smoked roasted malt finish. Thin

Bomber. Poured deep brown with a sticky, well-retained dark tan head. The aroma picked up sweet cocoa and vanilla with light-moderate black patent roastage.. sweet and well-presented. The flavor found more dry-roasted chocolates (of the little bit darker variety), with dry cocoa accents around.. black patent carried most of the weight.. tacky and a little sharp on the edges.. overall tasty, but not great. Medium-bodied at most on the palate.. just the slightest bit sour around.. dry, with lots of roast sitting on the finish. This was an average, and certainly drinkable stout.

Bomber pours very dark with thin mocha head. The aroma has dark roasted malts, an ashy note, a mild sense of dark fruity esters, maybe a sort of lactose note and then a short whiff of burnt toffee. The taste starts with dark roasted malts and then rolls into burnt malts, a mild roasted malt astringent tartness and a quick thin pulse of sweet dark fruity esters. Midway and into the finish notes of burnt toffee covered brownie yumminess join in.

Draft @ FBGBF ’010. Pouring up deep darkness with ruby mahogany edges and thin tan head. The modest aroma has a thin layer of pine hops and a sense of malt roastiness to go along with a splash of burnt malts. The taste starts with roasted malts, a touch of pine and then rolls into some burnt malts and a pleasing touch of earthiness.

Via trade with Dchmela. The aroma is oatmeal, cereal grains, chocolate. The appearance is deep black, tan head. The flavor is Oatmeal, ereal, chocolate, roast, slight sour milk. Medium in body. The finish is roast, sweet, light pine/resin. Not bad. Thanks to Dave, I never would be able to try this beer where I live.

Fresh 22 oz bomber that pours about an inch brown head served in a sniifer glass. A decent oatmeal stout that is worth trying. Tastes like a chocolate stout but not too robust. It isn’t my end all be all but a good oatmeal stout to try.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2011
Super fresh bomber. Pours a dark and fudgy looking chocolate mahogany color with some nice chestnut translucency at the edges. A small head of mocha tinted foam is quickly fleeting, leaving just a small bubbled edge and minimal lace spotting behind. The nose is rich with chocolate brownie and creamy flaked oats, hinting at coffee roast and earthy hop residuals. Unfortunately, I get a subtle tinge of butter that I perceive to be diacetyl. Flavors largely follow suit, showing excellent balance between bitter chocolate and coffee roast and sweeter caramelized sugars. The coffee component is earthy and slightly green, as are the hops. Again, however, I pick up a hint of a buttery, dirty sort of component that throws things off. I suspect that it will only get worse from here. The palate is moderate in body and soft in carbonation, drinking easy, with a slightly chalky finish. Overall, while there is alot of promise for a nicely balanced, roasty stout here, the fatal flaw is the diacetyl. Dial that in and you’d have a mighty fine, albeit simple, little beer.

22oz bottle. Solid black pour, thick brown head. Nice dry stout aroma. Roasted grains, burnt unsweetened cocoa. Flavor of hearty burnt grains, wooded hops. Finishes with a bit of cereal and cocoa. The best of the two bottles I bought at JAX, Cocoa Beach.

The aroma has all the requisite tastes with chocolate, coffee, and toasted malt. The appearance is brown with a thin head. The taste is like the aroma and not as bitter as some stouts which I like. The palate is thin for the style but not watery. The beer overall is a bit light for a stout but tasty.

not sure what is supposed to special this but there barely anything that makes it outstanding. thin mouth feel, weak malts with a touch of toasted. just a small hint of cocoa. light for a stout
