UPDATED: JUN 14, 2011 Bottle. Pours a dark dark black body with thin brown lacing. Aroma is sweet chocolate, light coffee and sweet brandy notes, had to double check if this was barrel aged. Mouthfeel is smooth with notes of coffee, sweet chocolate, oak, and bourbon.

Bomber. Rich, decadent roasted malt aroma with chocolate and coffee notes with a touch of anise and molasses. Pours inky black with a thin light brown head with no retention and very little lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt flavor with molasses and a viscous, rich, full body and mouthfeel. Finishes impeccably smooth with sweet chocolate and some coffee as well as and bit of anise. Excellent imperial stout!

Strong aroma of black licorice, anise, cinnamon, coffee and heavy roast. Slightly boozy. Absolutely perfect pitch black color, thick pour with a dark tan head. Very roasty flavor with a sharp hop bite. This gives way to some sweetness from the oats at the end. Good palate. Overall this is a very solid stout, just a little too charred for me.

Lots of aroma in this oatmeal frog-brew. Shitloads of chocolate, caramels and wet wood with some vanilla. The taste is sweeter than I imagined, but not overly sweet and I guess it is here the oatmeal is put to work? It has a power from the roasted malts that balance the sweetness very effectively, and the aftertaste brings you a bitterness that has a sweet aura and a dry sensation. Almost like a Kinder egg, three in one!

Black colour, small brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, some wooden notes as well as coffee, vanilla, some toffee and chocolate. Flavour is the same in a rather powerful, but smooth way. Very balanced and nice.

Tap. Aroma of coffee and vanilla. With warming little bit of oyster/soy sauce. Perfect presence, great delicate lacing after nearly hour. Noticable alcohol in taste but not irritating. Full body with oatmeal smoothness. Some sherry/porto notes. Chocolate, vanilla and coccoa. Real torpedo.
