emacgee (3958) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Pours an opaque black allowing hints of copper light and producing one finger of creamy tan head. Nose is rich with bakers chocolate and black cherry skins, notes of caramel and leather with a hint of fruit. Flavor is dark and smooth with a present but not overwhelming roast followed by bakers chocolate and coffee with ephemeral hints of fruit. Full bodied with a velvety palate.

Bottle. Pitch black body with a creamy thick light tan head. The aroma is sweet tobacco, chocolate, coffee, hard roasted malt and some ripe dark fruit. The flavour is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and lighter notes of hops. Creamy texture. Very good.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Black/brown pour with a small, frothy, tan head. Heavy roast on the aroma with notes of cocoa, brown sugar, and a little bit of boozy dark fruit. The flavor is also very roasty with notes of cocoa, roasted nuts, coffee, alcohol and slight smoke. Velvety, medium body with soft carbonation.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Bomber from Sam’s, Durham. Nice event for a nice beer. Deep dark brown pour, with a modest film of carbonation. Thick, oily body, with a slight copper tinge barely detectable. Looks hefty like a milkshake. Really smooth sipper with a hint of a chalky finish. Flavors are very nice, with a less overtly lactic thing happening than its in-state cousin DR. Tons of chocolate and cream, but with notable additions of roasts, anise, and burnt caramel. Very tasty stuff, vying for the in-state crown.

22oz bottle. Poured a dark and deep brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate, rosatiness, and burnt grains. Tastes of chocolate, dark fruits, roast, and caramel.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2010
Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of chocolate, malt, and cocoa. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, cocoa, and alcohol, leading to a dry cocoa finish. The alcohol tickles the tongue.
