Few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all – it must taste rare!

Bomber. Pours pitch black with a small foamy brown head that lingers nicely and leaves oily lacing on the glass. Rich, sweet aroma of chocolate cake, tobacco, caramel, light coffee, and dark fruit. Taste is just awesome. Moderately sweet and very rich in flavor. Chocolate fudge and tobacco dominate but there are hints of dark fruit and caramel throughout. Finish is mildly bitter, some light coffee. Fairly thick body, creamy, oily, and even a chewy too. This is just awesome stuff and it’s my kinda imperial stout. I want more. Reminds me of Founders Imperial Stout which I love.

Bottle. Used motor oil black pour with a thick mocha colored head. Aroma is strong roasted malt, bold dark roast coffee, bittersweet dark chocolate and dark fruit notes. Very sweet taste with more roasted malt, dark fruits, burnt brownies, dark chocolate, coffee notes and fresh fudge. Body is thick and chewy with a strong, dense, bubbly carbonation and a sugary stickiness. Ends with more dark chocolate, fudge, chocolate covered oily coffee beans and dark fruit notes.

humlelala (1282) - DENMARK - JUN 15, 2013
(bomber from Ølbutikken) Pours pitch black with big, coffee head. Zero carbonation and thick, creamy body. Aroma is roasted malt, dark fruits and hints of coffee, tar and smoke. There’s also some plum in there. Green? Creamy texture, flat, monstrously full body and a dark, roasted finish. Flavour is not as sweet as one would think - perhaps more dark chocolate and booze.

AirForceHops (5888) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Draft @ When Pigs Fly. Pitch black with a nice tan head that laced the entire snifter. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, hops and a little raisin. Taste is dark roasted malts, burnt coffee beans, rich high end chocolate, caramel and just a faint hint of smoke. Full body with a thick oily sticky texture. Low carbonation, long roasted finish with light alcohol as well. The flavors of this stout dance across the tongue. A slightly different flavor combinations from the first sip to the end of the snifter. Nice level of complex roasted malts. This is a wonderful stout! Give this a try for sure!

Bendrixian (1464) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2013
Super dark colour sporting a used motor oil like texture. Big beer with crazy long esters, chocholate and molasses, sugar cane and a slight vegemite character. Sweet and boozy, prune juice like quality on the palate, viscous, thick and awesomeness, if one dimensional.

tobias (208) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2013
22 oz bottle. The pour is very thick with a brown head. I don’t know if my nose is off but the aroma is mostly of wet paint ( alcohol), faint hints of roast, and dark fruit. Hints if chocolate but overall disappointing. Flavor is very much of chocolate fudge, raisins, dates and hints if coffee. Thick syrupy mouth feel. Low carbonation. Aroma aside, I felt like a drank a dark chocolate bar which I enjoyed. A little sweet and unbalanced. Not in a bad way. Slightly disappointed overall.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2013
Super dark pour with a deep mocha head that’s almost purple. Has a very green vegetal sugar cane nose with some molasses. Surprisingly drinkable for being so strong and viscous. Not complex but still super stuff.

emacgee (4576) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2013
This stuff pours a ridiculously full and piceous black with two fingers of burnt chestnut brown head. Beer was so thick it didn’t make any sound when it poured. Nose is intense, lots of fruit skins (plum most prominently) and a touch boozy. Weird chemically character. Lots of char in the flavor, a touch smoky and meaty. Pretty strong hop character and burnt sugar. Touch of roast. Kind of clashing. Definitely super intense.

Bottle Poured into snifter. Thick dark used oil pour with a nice dark brown head. Smells sweet with dark chocolate and fudge. Coats the side as it moves around. Sweet Taste up front. Lots of fudge and chocolate cake with dark chocolate bitterness. Very thick body. Really impressive.
