3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle. Dakr black pour wiht a large and nicely foamed tan head. Its a beaut. Smell is mild, its got peat, cocoa, and basic mineral/co2. Flavor is cocoa, dark fruits, roasty, super smooth and drinkable. Sweet up front but a nice bitterness and dryness in the finish. You get a nice tan "milk moustache" when drinking the first few sips. This beer eluded me for awhile but nice to finally try it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted chocolate malt aroma. Medium to heavy toasted milk chocolate flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a good sweet beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle, shared by tmoney99. Very dark brown color. Thin tan head. Couple loose splotches of lace. Chocolate malt, bigger roast malt in the nose. Good, smooth, kind of chewy texture. Lighter carbonation. Medium to bigger body. Lightly dry finish. Moderate bitter, light to moderate sweet taste. Good roast, not so sweet, I like that in a milk stout. Solid, tasty stuff; this is more my style for the style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a dark cola brown color with a medium sized beige head that disappeared quickly. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, sweeter oatmeal notes, mild black coffee with some earthy bitterness to the finish, some dark chocolate as well. Nice drinking stout.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours a stouty brown black, opaque, thin espresso colored head with okay retention and lacing. Nose is roast, cocoa, coffee beans. Mouth is oily and full bodied, medium sweet and munchy crunchy chocolatey, roast, coffee, butterscotch. Some sootiness near the finish. A nice dessert brew (on its own or paired with a piece of chocolate cake).

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 7/20
First rating. Dark on the pour. Brownish color. Good aroma smells of chocolate and roasted type of smell. Tastes very light. Doesn’t feel like much in you mouth which is different than a lot of stouts. Goes down easy and very palatable. Overall it was a really good beer for watching some playoff football

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2013 Shared bomber poured to snifters displaying an opague, black/brown color, with a modest layer of light tan, bubbly head foam, and fair lacing as spots & strands. The aroma was inviting, with a roasted nature, chocolate, a touch of smoke, and some caramelly sweetness. The taste offered a little more of a smoked impression as it began, and continued with some dryness, moderate hop bitterness, and a touch of astringency. Medium bodied, with soft, but fairly influential carbonation. Pretty smooth, and tasty!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber bottle and served in snifter: Pours a very deep brown, near opaque with a small frothy beige head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of roasted and chocolate malts, earthy and minerally esters, prune and aromatic pipe tobacco, some char and coffee bitterness as well. The taste is sweet and roasted balanced, not much hop profile but I am sure it is there. Ashy and slightly dark fruit twangy finish. The mouth feel could use a boost, perhaps some wheat or other non-fermentable? That said this is very quaffable for 7% ABV.
