It’s pitch-black with a dark-brown, creamy head. The aroma is slightly vinous with notes of roasted malt, dark fruits, licorice and chocolate. The flavour is sweet and vinous with notes of roasted malt, dark fruits, chocolate and the finish is sweet and slightly roasted bitter. It’s a nice and very harmonic beer.

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Bottle… Pours pitch black with a small, creamy, beige head. Decent retention. The aroma is a mélange of blackstrap molasses, black licorice and pouch tobacco. Full-bodied, viscous and velvety with stinging carbonation. The flavor is bittersweet with lots of molasses, anise and licorice. There may be a little too much black malt used to brew this bad boy. Maybe a little less sugar from black malt and a little more sugar from other sources would help to keep the overbearing molasses and licorice notes in check. Very reminiscent of Bells Batch 9000 and Avery Mephistopheles. Quality brew, but a bit much. Thanks to growler for sharing this bottle!

daknole (9052) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2009
Yeah ok this beer just rocks ass. Damn this is the shit. Black. Black. Black. Tan head. Tons of chocolate, roast, coffee, prunes, raisins, toffee and some light hops. Flavor is just rich and amazing. First its sweet, then its fruity, the hops swoop in to blance it so perfectly. Just a remarkable brew. Now I know why bourbon county stout is so good!!

adnielsen (9013) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2011
Bomber @ home, picked up in Omaha in March. Somewhat syrupy pour. Deep black appearance with a pretty small, dark brown head. Dark chocolate, roasty malty, earthy/piney, dark stout aroma. Fairly thick mouth feel. Fairly strong, earthy hoppy, tar, roasty, chocolatey flavor. Earthy, tar, chocolate aftertaste. I’m a little surprised that I didn’t enjoy this more.

hopdog (8867) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2010
22oz bottle. Poured a dark black color with a larger sized tan head. Aromas of roast, floral hops, chocolate, coffee, pine, and licorice. Tastes of floral hops, roast, dark and bitter chocolate, some coffee, molasses, and coffee. Lighter alcohol in the finish but not giving away the 11+% and easy to drink.
