Had this at the 2012 Great American Beer Fest in Denver, Colorado. Nice vanilla/chocolate and graham cracker scent. Taste is similar, almost has a band aid flavor.

Bottle, shared with my wife. Dark brown, low beige head. Aroma is very sweet, lots of vanilla, chocolate, and some burnt sugars. Taste is similar, although less intense than the aroma. Quite sweet, but somehow lacking in body. The vanilla has an extract quality to it that I’m not crazy about. Also, for a "campfire" stout it is missing the most fundamental campfire trait: smoke. I think a little woodsy smoke and more malt body would have made this a better beer.

bleeng (1523) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Bomber thanks to Jimmy. Nose is roasty, vanilla. Taste is the same but fairly mild. Pretty light overall for a stout with just a hint of alcohol. Mediocre.

Draft. Clear dark brown pour. Milk chocolate, sweet, graham cracker, a bit of marshmallow. A bit too sweet, medium body. Decent

Dominate aromas and flavors of milk chocolate, brown bread and mildly roasted malt. Creamy layers of marshmallow, creamy chocolate and brown bread wash the palate. Not the heaviest stout I have tasted, though the weight is pleasant and the texture smooth and creamy. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Tap. Pours opaque black with a small tan head and great lacing. Aroma is coffee, graham crackers, dark chocolate, vanilla, and a touch of smoke. Flavor is quite sweet, same as above with a light smoky, light bitter finish. Creamy and full bodied, and quite an interesting twist on the standard stout.

On tap at Burger in Santa Cruz. Nearly black in color with a thin but lasting tan head. Nice chocolatey aroma with roasty notes. The flavor is nice if a bit artificial seeming. Tootsie Roll, toasty burnt marshmallow, and earthy tones. Tasty brewski. Medium-bodied with a pretty standard mouthfeel. I like this overall.

A - Pours a dark brown-black color with a finger of frothy khaki-chocolate head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of roasted chocolate malts, graham crackers, marshmallows, vanilla, a bit of smoke, and lactose. T - Starts off with a mix of roasted chocolate malts, marshmallows, vanilla, and a bit of smoke. Through the middle, the graham crackers come through with some more smoke, and some milk chocolate. The finish is a mix of chocolate malts, a bit of smoke, graham crackers, and marshmallows. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and a bit thick with a sweet and roasted finish. D - Very drinkable. Really nice balance of flavors. The graham crackers and marshmallows are just right.

22oz bottle. Rating #25. Pitch black pour with a chocolaty light brown head. Huge milk chocolate aroma, big time aroma, real nice with a nice subtle roast in the back. Flavor was nice, more chocolate and roast with a chocolate milk finish, tasty. (2481)

Bomber from Bevmo Valencia. Nose is rich chocolate marshmallow sundae with some roasted nuts on top. Black with a medium tan head. Flavor is slightly bitter chocolate with hints of roast and vanilla . Nice rich stout reminding me of Kern River Class V.
