COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smooth, rich and creamy. Rye malt blends with roast and chocolate malts to create a new and delicious stout profile, balanced with soft and velvety hops. This northwest original is poured using the traditional nitrogen dispensing method, so it may take an extra minute to arrive, but the wait is worth it. The Black Bear won the Gold Medal at the 2003 GABF in the foreign-style stout category. Have a pint of Stout with the Seven-Barrel Burger or the Beer Battered Onion Rings.

Fatehunter (1414) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Poured into a pint glass; black with a thick inch of tan head. Smells like chocolate, roasted malt and more chocolate. Great balance. On the tongue: bitter chocolate, toasted malt, grippingly bitter with a caramel aftertaste. Soft and creamy body with light carbonation... quite perfect. Overall a simply amazing drink. Drinks like milk, only better for you.

This is an overall good beer. Fairly light for an imperial stout but good. Definitely swish this beer in the glass to open up the flavor

mjg74 (2571) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Bomber from Roth’s. 7%. Black in color on the pour. Nose is roasty with quite a strong whiff of burnt coffee. Dry roasty flavor. Lots off coffee. A hint of milk sugar. Pretty good stout. Doesn’t really taste like most foreign stouts I’ve had. Good stout though.

RexTalionis (2708) - FINLAND - JAN 13, 2015
Bottle. Black in color with a nice creamy tan head. Milk chocolate and roasted notes in aroma. Bitterness and bit of muted vanilla too. Dark chocolate mixed with bit of anise and coffee in taste. Soft and velvety sweet mouthfeel. Espresso in the end.

Lagerboy (1378) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2015
Bomber, 7% Abv. Hueless darkest brown, fading mocha foam. Aroma of dark roasted malt and chocolate. Bittersweet dark roast chocolate taste, coffee hint, no rye, subtle. Softer carbonation, medium bodied, lightly hopped. DNFL (Definitely not for Lagerboys)

achtungpv (222) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Maybe my favorite stout. Rich black body with a thick chocolate tan head. Smooth malt with nice coffee bitter notes. Chocolate and light black berry notes. A really stellar beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mgajdaczewa (654) - Katowice, POLAND - JAN 4, 2015
W aromacie przyjemna czekolada i kakao, dość słodki. W smaku bardzo słodki, wręz cukrowy, lekkie nuty czekoladowe, do tego raczej wodnisty. Brakuje pełni, głębi, kontry dla słodyczy i pijalności. Dla miłośników słodkich piw bedzie ok. Dla mnie tylko niezły aromat ratuje sprawę.

luttonm (2571) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2014
22oz in Seattle. Dark heavy black, small tan head. Sweet grain, raisins, when I read it has rye it made sense. Good chewy body, a bit sweet. Tasty solid stout

Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.
