COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A delightful, aged, roasty stout. Smooth and rich, yet light bodied and dry. With a hint of sweet and a pleasing aftertaste of coffee and chocolate, this stout is a pleasure to drink. N.W. Cascades and Fuggles give this stout its hop essentials. CHEERS!

Bottle. Pours a somewhat thin almost-black color with very little head. Definitely strong roasting notes to the nose. Taste has a bit of bitterness to it, which I thought was a little unexpected. Roasting comes through in the taste as well. Fairly light and easy to drink, too.

Bomber. Poured nearly black with a medium-sized tan head. Aroma was heavily roasted malt, some coffee and chocolate. Flavor was very roasty malt, notes of slightly bitter coffee, milk chocolate. A bit ashy and astringent. Very drinkable and tasty. Slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation.

It has a really pleasant nose, full of roast, alcohol, dark fruit, biscuit, and molasses. The flavor is nice with notes of vanilla, roast, and molasses, but it gives way to a cloying bitterness, like tannins from eating walnuts.

reebtogi (4144) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 21, 2012
650ml bomber pours black on color with 2 fingers of light beige head that left some hefty lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark roasted malts with hints of coffee and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt and coffee bitterness with some chocolate malty sweetness with a mild hop bitterness at the end. Medium to heavy body with decent carbonation. This is just a delightful stout and it was a pleasure to have been able to sample this gem.

Pours dark black. About a finger of light tan head. Smells rich and ashy, bit of coffee. Taste is burnt and malty, very smokey. Bit of coffee on the tail. Very, very drinkable. Good stout.

douglas88 (5898) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Bomber thanks to Brewdad. Pours a pure black color with a thick dark brown head. The aroma is sweet roast, caramel and some chocolate. A very nice flavor; chocolate, bitter hops, sweet caramel and roasted malts, quite smooth and hoppy, more like a mellow stout or porter. Very good. Some ash and roast in the finish.

Black body with tan foamage. Nice dark chocolate, sugared up black coffee, roasty aromas. medium bodied. Sweet dark chocolate flavors with a burnt black malt, coffee astringency to balance--good

Stygian body topped with a thick, lush, dark coffee head. Smoothly roasty nose is soon overtaken my black patent sootnyess. Smoky and roasty befitting Hades or a coal burning plant. The body is salty and smoky roastness. A solid, stoutly brew, but the saltiness was a bit distracting for me.
