Bomber from Cardinal in Niles. Pours cola black with a brown head leaving nice lacing. Aroma has bakers chocolate, and some more chocolate, with some molasses. Taste is of bittersweet chocolate, expresso, caramel and some roast with a nice oatmeal presence to mellow things out. Thick and chewy. Finishes more bitter than sweet, with a lot of body and depth. Nice stout!

Aroma is dominated by chocolate. Deep black color with thin foam. Cocoa and coffee overtones. Some subtle espresso and toffee notes.Some complex molasses and maple syrup thickness really compliment this sout. Overall, Fairly basic stout flavors. Chocolate and coffee overtones,. I’d give this a B+ rating.

22oz courtesy of radarsock. Cheers, Ander! Pours a medium stout brown with a tan head. Nose is roasted malts, some molasses, some sugar, some chocolate, and some syrupy sweetness with dark fruit. Flavor hits with sark fruit and molasses up front, some booze, dark fruit, and mild coffee in the mid, and then syrupy fruit in the finish with mild licorice and molasses. Finish is molasses and dark fruit; light to medium in body for the style and not bad overall.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours cola like with a small firm and sense tan head leaving some nice looking lacing. Nose is big on milk chocolate. Very rum and raisin like. Plenty if dark, stewed fruits and heavy milk chocolate mix well. Taste is a great balance of milk chocolate, sweet vanilla and light burnt ash tones. Very balanced for such a big beer. Really great stuff

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a deep dark black with a medium to thick sized dark tan head. Big heavy dusty roast, chocolate and cocoa on the nose, with a little dry hoppiness and coffee. Medium bodied, big and roasty. The alcohol peeks through a tiny bit but for being 10% it’s not as heavy as it could be. Very easy drinking, smooth and roasty. Lots of cocoa and chocolate. Smooth roast into a lightly hoppy bitterness with a bunch of cocoa. Very tasty.

Smokey, burnt malts dominate the flavor profile. Dark and chewy, almost grainy on the palate. Not very good.
