Poured on tap from Beachwood it has a almost black color in the glass with a beige head. The aroma has some vanilla with roasted malts and a mild smokiness. Flavor has coffee up front with chocolate a mild oatmeal flavor. Very rich and complex, ultra smooth.

Good coffee smell, bitter chocolate, coca taste, almost no sweetness. Beautiful dark brown color. It needs more sweetness but that smoked taste does make up for a little.

More hop than anticipated, but that plays amazingly well against the smoked malts. Pairing with a crumble and ice cream dessert.

Tasted Dec 2013 at a Walt tribute. Pours black with brown head and lace. Aroma of smoked malts, milk chocolate, shaved pencil. Moderate carbonation and significant mouthfeel. Flavors of liquid smoke, burnt malts, bitter chocolate, espresso, bitter roots. Overall big, bold, lots of dark rich and bitter flavors.

Bottle brought to Nj from CA by a buddy. Almost black with a thin mocha head. Aroma is sweet charred malt. The taste adds light sweet chocolate, coffee, and toast. Silky, semi-rich mouthfeel. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lukaduke (2222) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Pours a deep roasted black color with a finger of khaki foam. The nose has some smoked campfire to it and mingles nicely with the roasted chocolate and heavy grain profile. The palate follows the nose with nice balance between smoked flavors and round soft chocolate roast but its a bit thin on the tail end and the flavors just fall flat. Not a bad beer just a bit underwhelming in all aspects. Not much complexity.

Bomber from Nick, thanks. Pours a jet black color with a medium white head. A smooth mostly chocolates, some smoke nose. The flavor is a pretty big roast, smoke, oats, light dark fruit, some metallic bitter dark chocolate that reminds me of Guinness Special Export, more smoky sweet goodness in the finish. Sweet brown sugar beef jerky. Very nice. A good palate.

500th Imperial Stout tick. Fitting it is with a stellar beer such as this. Yes!
22oz bottle courtesy of GT2. It pours with a deep dark mahogany colored body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up pure yumminess with dark roasted malts, some toffee, a thicket of malts and chocolate as well as silky smooth and light bacony smokiness. All this is very well balanced and integrated, intoxicating aroma. The taste does not disappoint as it delivers malt and chocolate brownie sweetened dark roasted maltiness, a sliver of a toffee sort of note that is pure yum and then smooth bacon smokiness that is at just the right level to create flavor harmony. Wow! Well executed.

joeneugs (3262) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 22, 2013
22 oz. bomber. It pours a very dark brown/black color with a thin tan head of foam. The aroma is toasted bread, cocoa powder, light campfire smoke and coffee. Nice. The flavor has a good level of smoke with burnt wood, toast, espresso, a little smores and intense dark bakers chocolate. Very creamy body. Sufficiently dry and bitter/roasted in the finish. Delicious beer.

Bomber poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lingering ring of brown foam. Aromas of smoke, ink, roastiness, coffee and dark chocolate. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of roastiness, smoke, bakers cocoa, light wood and light espresso with a smooth lingering smokey finish.

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of thick chocolate, oats, slight smoky tones, coffee, sweet sugary brownie notes in there, hints of dark fruits as well. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate, sweet creamy milk chocolate, hints of oat, roast, and slight coffee, finishing with more caramel, toffee and sweet brownie, slightly smoky.
