portableparty (2096) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2011
Bottle to snifter (release#3). Pours oily brown black with a soapy tan chocolatly head that dissipates to a thin tiny collar. Aroma is rich chocolate roasted malt and prunes and a little soy. Taste is chocolate roasted malt hints of coffee and pitted fruit with a bitter finish and alcohol is present. Palate is full and ceamy with a slick oily dry finish. This is really tasty, even with the alcohol being quite noticable. Will need to get another one and sit on it for awhile. Nice stuff!

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 21, 2011
bottle from dave on 1/2/11. pale pour... more like a thin porter than and IS? with an off white ring. smells a little green...roast, smoke, ash, rubber, nutty and caramel all make an appearance in the aroma. the flavor is odd... like a very hoppy bitter version of the aroma and very sweet... not malty. just sweet. luckily, it has a thin enough body to keep it drinkable. 6/2/6/3/13- hopefully i can get a re-rate of this as it is now locally available.

Braudog (6024) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Bottle -- release # is unreadable, but indicates 9.1% ABV. Pours like dessert in a glass ... rich and black with a sticky tan head. The initial waft is sweet and chocolatey ... The beer drinks as well as any American Imperial Stout can. Rich with full-on dark chocolate, a hint of espresso, and a sharp bitter finish to cap it off. Delicious! (#4172, 7/16/2011)

Ibrew2or3 (7511) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Bomber courtesy of douglas88. Pours deep darkness with nice mocha head. The aroma offers up a mixture of caramel, black strap molasses, dark roasted malts, chocolate malts, semi tart and fruity chocolate covered pomegranates and earthiness. Hmmm. The taste starts off with dark roasted malts, some sweet dark fruity esters and then spicy black licorice. To midway a nice load of chocolate brownie comes forward. It ends pretty neutral.

Pours a black motor oil color with a brown head. Nice color to the pour. Chocolate and burnt coffee round out the aroma. Amazing taste. I like. Sweet at first with some nice dry bitterness at the end. Mmm. Bit of creaminess at the beginning as well.
