durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Bomber from Sam’s Quik Shop in Durham. Pours midnight black with a small light brown head which nearly disappeared but always created swirly patterns. Nose and taste are huge everything--nuts, soy, chocolate, dark fruits, some sweet coffee hints, and a decent amount of hops fighting their way through. Palate is full and rich. Glad I shelled out the $12.99.

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2014
(Rating #8,700) Bottle... This beer is an 800lb gorilla with a chainsaw for a penis!… Pours Marshall Zhukov-black with a small, creamy, khaki head. The aroma is a fantastic mélange of campfire smoke, peat smoke, leather and burnt mocha. Full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor presents burnt cocoa, charcoal and peat-smoked scotch barrel. Finishes scorched with a generous measure of lingering bitterness. World class beer provided by ctipping!

Dan269605 (235) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - APR 21, 2014
Thick black pour not much head at all, just brown bubbles creating a thin layer. Big sweet roasted aroma, chocolate, cocoa, dark fruit like figs and dates, caramel. Really nice! Taste follows the aroma well, nice rich chocolate upfront then comes the dark fruits, followed by a bit of alcohol warmth. Great thick mouthfeel. This feels the way a 12% stout should. Very impressive.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4763) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2014
From the February 2014 3R6P tasting +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured thick, black and oily with a large foamy dark brown head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was bitter and roasty with notes of coffee, wood, smoke and a bit of red wine. The flavor was bitter and roasty with moderately strong floral hops, wood, smoke and coffee. Long bitter finish of roasty malts and smoke. Thick and creamy body. Ok.
