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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

I love the simple logo, great aroma, taste is excellent, but the aftertaste is a bit offensive. Overall, 16/20, super beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours from a 22 oz bottle purchased at Market of Choice in Ashland, Oregon this poured black with a very attractive tan head and good lacing. Nose of roasted malts with chocolate and coffee. Medium body and good creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is rich bitter chocolate with some nice hop bitterness that carries over into the finish. A great micro-brewery beer.

Draught at Bier Stein. Dark brown pour with a 2 inch tan head. Roasted aroma with hints of coffee and chocolate. Flavor much the same, pretty typical stout all in all, but I’m glad this place exists in my good old home county of Yamhill.
