jake65 (3444) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - FEB 6, 2008
Bottle: Pours a rich, dark brown with a thick brown head. Aroma is chocolatey and roasted malts, just a hint of the oats. Thick and creamy texture just soothes your soul as it coats your tongue. Flavor abounds with chocolate, roastiness, oat, and light bitters. This is huge in flavor and reeks of pure deliciousness. Thanks BuckeyeBoy!

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2008 22 oz. bomber split with Naka. Pours black, thick and viscous with very dark chocolate head. Nose is roasty, chocolatey with a small, subtle fruit, fig, plum, cherry and raisin. Taste is roasty with a touch of lactose and fruit, raisin and plum, with some sweet caramel and toffee. There is a very well hopped finish. After is dry and bitter. 2/7/08 - Upon further review of my notes, had to make some changes.

Thanks a LOT for this gem, Daniel/TheCheeseMan, it’s incredibly nice! It’s black as the night and the head is dark brown, huge and creamy. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and oats. The flavour provokes outburst of pleasure and yumminess!! (I know there isn’t such a word, but now there is :)) The body is smooth, slightly sweet with an elegant bitterness, that becomes a bit grapefruit-like in the finish and the mouthfeel is oily. It has notes of roasted malt, lots of chocolate, coffee and oats. It’s a stout just I like them, and I would like to drink it side by side with my beloved Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast some day, they are very like IMO.

Poured into my trusty snifter. Jet black body with a very dark 1 finger head The suds is composed of relatively large bubbles, which isn’t really conducive to retention or lacing. Not a problem for a stout. The aroma here is strikingly potent. Rich, sweet chocolate and a soft, fruity alcohol note combine to become extremely appetizing. I may be crazy but the harder I inhale, the more the fruitiness attenuates to a honeydew note. The flavor is intensely chocolatey, with an impeccable roasty coffee/oat bitterness in the finish. The balance is sublime. The alcohol is almost entirely unapparent but I can detect it’s subtle sharpness under the chocolate. This beer is incredibly smooth. The body is luxuriously full, with just the right amount of carbonation. The mouthfeel is amazingly clean relative to the body, and the bitterness creates a wonderfully dry finish. Spectacular beer. One of those ones that you would kill to have available locally.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Draft at Hop Devil Grill. Black pour with a small brown head. Aroma is like an ordinary porter; a little lactic with light roasted malt. Flavor is somewhat better; roasted chocolate malt, semi-sweet, but sort of high carbonation. Coffee / roasted finish.

hopslovin (194) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Bomber. Ink black pour with slight crimson edging. Foamy tan head, thick sticky lace. Roast, sweet malt, coffee, and chocolate on the nose. Faint wisp of alcohol. Flavors of sweet malt with coffee/dark chocolate bitterness. Slight hop presence. Medium to full mouthfeel. Chocolatey bitter finish. Tasty for dessert or a good warmer on a cold evening.
