Bomber from Marcus. Pours quite black with a dark tan head. Smells like darkish milk chocolate. Near full bodied. Flavor is darkish milk chocolate with a lot of burnt malt and some vanilla. It seizes the tongue. Crushes it with dark flavors. It’s not harsh, but it effects the tongue as though it were. Quite bitter, quite astringent. Definitely a strong statement. Finishes like sucking on bakers chocolate. Bitter!

Bottle. Pours a viscous black with tan head. Aroma of dark roast and semi- sweet chocolate. Flavor is much the same with a nice dark roasted bitter that adds a slight tang...malty. Mouthfeel is heavy with low carbonation. Overall, damn good solid brew!

Thanks bauermj! Pours dark opaque black with some light passing through. One finger of dark chestnut brown head. Nose shows lots of dark malts, bitter chocolate, and black coffee. Very roasty with a light acidity and sweetness. Roasty and bitter flavor, definitely a bitter acidic bite to it. Bitter chocolate and black coffee. Bitter on the palate with a nice viscosity.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2012 Bottle. Black/dark brown liquid with medium tan head. Smells of coffee, licorice, chocolate, ash, bread and maybe a little hoppy. Some dark fruits as well. Quite burnt. Taste is also quite burnt with light sweetness and medium bitterness. Medium to full bodied with ok carbonation and long, lingering, burnt finish. Not boozy at all. Quite good but a bit too burnt. Would have preferred more coffee/chocolate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Black with a pretty short creamy light brown head that leaves only some spots.
Sweet and a bit milky chocolate aroma, roasted with some wet burnt wood, vanilla and slight vinous with dark fruit.
Burnt taste with bitter dark chocolate, strong coffee, licorice/salmiak, acidic vinous with dark fruit and berries and charcoal. Alcohol burns in the throat a bit.
Medium to bigger body, slick mouthfeel with small tickeling bubbles.
Alcohol is too present and its a bit too acidic vinous and salty for my taste.
Smak: len slick munkÃ¤nsla, smÃ¥ smulan stickiga mousserande flyktiga bubblor, stor kropp.

Bottle. Creamy and foamy darker tan head with some big bubbles.; mahogany nearly black body. Lots of roast and some acrid smoke in the aroma with some light chocolate and coffee. Really lots of savory characteristics with dry nuts, dark chocolate, lots of roast and peatiness. Medium to thicker body that’s viscous with tiny carbonation bubbles.

6/4/11. Bottle. Opaque black pour with a nice brown head that sticks and laces a ton. Fairly light aroma of milk and dark chocolates with a touch of coffee and alcohol. Luxurious, smooth chocolate flavor loaded with sweet vanilla followed by lingering dry roastiness. Creamy, nice mouthfeel. Nice!

Bottle. Pours a opaque thick black color with small to medium coffee colored head. Impressive random lacing streaks left on my snifter.

Taste is filled with coffee, smoekd grains. heavy roasted malt, fidge, vanilla bean, brown sugar, and piney rez’d out hops. Mouthfeel is smooth with a dry bitter finish. Very good balanced stout. Cheers.
