degbert (1375) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark, opaque brown/black with garnet highlights and a mixed-grain, tan, creamy, lacy head. Nose is baking chocolate, coffee, cinnamon, vanilla, chile, booze, and pumpernickel. Rich chocolate, vegetal chile, coffee, and vanilla up front; quite a harmonious balance. The heat and smoke doesnít really kick in until the back of the palate, past the coffee and cream; itís a smooth transition, and itís really very well handled. Mild for as high an ABV as itís carrying. Finish is long and smoky with more chocolate. Well done.

sudomorph (911) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2015
Bomber Bottled 9/11/13. Pours a near black with a thin tan head. Aroma has smooth notes of roast, cola, dark fruits, caramel, slight coffee, and faint cinnamon and vanilla. Taste is balanced. Dark chocolate, roasted malts, caramel, slight dark fruits and vanilla, cola, cinnamon, and a mild chili heat at the end of a coffee bitter ending. Medium-full body with a low-medium carbonation. Thicker mouth feel with a slightly dry finish. Overall a nice stout. Smooth flavours of roasty, cinnamon, vanilla, and caramel with a slight chili heat at the end. Probably a bit flat.

Notes are a bit light on this one, but I know that it was good. Not one I need to buy again though.

sfontain (845) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2015
12 oz bottle into tall tulip. Dark cola color but nearly syrupy; you can tell from the poor that itís going to be an oily, smooth beer. Nutty, chocolate, barely roasty, caramel, malt, lots of vanilla. Lots of smooth carbonation; medium to full mouthfeel. I didnít notice the chile whatsoever, but I wasnít really looking for it. Pretty good methinks.

Black pour with thin tan head. Malty, chocolate,a little espresso on the nose. Taste is chocolate straight up, roasty, some spice and vanilla. Chilli bite is very mild but comes through more at the end.

ryanhunter_4 (108) - La Crete, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 9, 2015
12 oz. bottle poured at my brotherís in Methuen, MA. Pours a dark brown, almost black with a brownish head. Smells slightly of chocolate and spices. Definitely a touch of cinnamon. I was disappointed with this beer; the chile taste didnít work for me although the finish was more typical of a stout. For me it was barely drinkable. Too bad...I was really excited to try this.
