Bottle @ Frank’s (Ramnuts) tasting - 06/11/12. Mid black with a decent bubbly tan head. Roast malt nose, big molasses punch, a little paint and a touch of coffee. Taste is roast malts, some notes of wood, chocolate, molasses. Medium bodied with soft carbonation lending towards a dry finish.

Bomber. Poured delightfully dark brown with a creamy cap of sticky tan head. The aroma picked up dry, toasted coffee, chocolate, and vanilla with fresh pine and earthy accents.. a touch of sour lactic character too. The flavor found more coffee than anything else at the core.. lesser chocolate and molasses too.. lightly sour milky notes throughout.. a little smoke in there too. Medium-bodied with a little too much carbonation that got in the way.. other than that, well-balanced and tasty.

Ernest (6354) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is black. Aroma is moderately to heavily malty (chocolate syrup, chocolate milk, roasted grain), with a note of vanilla. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Quite one-dimensional in the nose, choco-vanilla all the way, but not unpleasant. Overly sweet in the mouth, hard to drink a lot of it. Forgettable but not bad.

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.

reebtogi (4396) - 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.

Tap @ Belmont Station... Poured black with a khaki head. Roasted malts on the nose. Doughy, creamy, malty. And a good smokiness there too, especially evident in the finish. Mild bitterness, earthy and chalky. Dry finish with a touch of sweetness from the malts.
