Crispy34 (374) - Texas, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Bomber bottle. Aroma is some vanilla with dark malt. Some yeast. Appearance is a very dark brown with a tan head. Taste is somewhat vanilla that slides into a dry dark malt and finishes very dry, raw malt. The palate is dry and astringent. Overall, a decent beer and i would buy it again. Gets better as it warms up. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A very nice beer. Pours a thick red-black with a thick tan head. Smells awesome, like vanilla and macadamia nuts. Taste is vanilla, coffee, with a hoppy start and a sweet finish. Damn good. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strong vanilla (of course) and cream aroma.Dark dark brown, not quite black and tan look. Beige/tan colored head. Tastes almost coffeeish with a slight bitter then evens out for a smooth finish. Great beer!

Atom (1338) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Bottle thanks to thome50, pours a dark brown/black with a thin khaki head. Aroma of vanilla, cocoa, and coffee. Taste heavy on vanilla mixes well with chocolate and subtle but bitter coffee. Taste like a gas station flavored coffee, simple but enjoyable.

1st night in Zion. Thanks JB. Overly carbonated!! Pours medium brown color with a large tan head. Roasty and chocolaty aromas with some vanilla. Moderately roasted malt flavor with vanilla and chocolate. Medium body but too much carbonation in our bottle. .

Bomber. Very carbonated. That detracted from an otherwise solid beer. Standard charred malt nose and a bit of chocolate. Palate is a bit thin.

DocJitsu (907) - Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Pours dark, nearly black with glints of red in bright light. Root beer head of a little north of an inch. Bouquet is meager--a little white chocolate and bourbon noted. Flavor is surprisingly bold that delivers a middle characterized by a sweet, white chocolate, vanilla, caramel. Finishes with a quickly disappearing coffee acidity. Creamy, pleasant mouthfeel. Fun beer. And at 6.3% ABV, you can have two.
