Dark opaque black color, good creamy beige head. Milky, a bit licoricy aroma with some burned notes. Medium-bodied. Milky, lactose, chocolate, burned malts in the flavor. Reminds me a bit about Mufloni Keirin Stout at home.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle shared by Roonai. Thanks, Sarah! Pours a nice darker blackish hue, perhaps some lighter edges with a cakey greyish head that dies to a thicker film. Laces ok. Aromas are some touches of sweet cocoa, chocolate, and some creamy sweet malts. Touches of caramel, with touches of dryness, soda bread. Light and a bit less intense. Earthy roast, coffee comes into the fold pretty strong with soil, earthy roast, some toast. Initial is medium bodied, a good deal of peanuts, pretzels, and biscuity malts. Decent coffee, with some ok roast, toast, and biscuits. Earthy malts, touches of roast grow. Peanuts and nuts, with soil, roast, touches of chocolate and coffee grows stronger into this ordeal. Perhaps this is a touch infected, a dash of red fruit, berry, and faint tartness grows a touch. Overly carbonated, as the foam keeps creeping up the bottle. Some decent brettiness grows a bit. Finish is a bit telltale with a faint metallic essence, toast and roasty earthy coffee. Strange, underbodied. Not your typical stout. Itís not bad for likely being infected, but itís a bit strange.

Comes out of the tap an opaque chocolaty sable with a thick, fine-bubbled tan head that sticks around a while and leaves some heavy lacing. Rich, smoky, chocolaty aroma has undertone of quality coffee and hint of licorice. Flavor fills the mouth with fine roast coffee, chocolate, molasses and even hoppy tones as well as a licorice hint. Thick, smooth, oily texture has some fizz and leaves behind a nice smoky tingle.

Roasted malt is faint on the aroma. A very deep hue of brown with garnet edges and a beige head. Chocolate, leather and alcohol mingle. Finish has a bitterness that lingers. Creamy velvety mouthfeel. A very enjoyable yet drinkable stout that is sessionable and not too bold in any direction.

Bomber served in a Guinness pint. Pours dark brown-black in color with a short light brown head. Short retention and minimal lacing. Nose is a little funky honestly. Rubbery? Maybe needs to warm. Thereís some coffee, nuts, and licorice as well. Mild roasty sweet flavor. Medium-full body, thick texture, lively carbonation, and a medium roasty dry finish. Slightly off but solid.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Very dark walnut brown with a medium brown cap that stays as a thin covering. Aroma is hearty roast, molasses, light chocolate. Palate is generously laden with hard roasted malt, nuances of molasses, bitter chocolate, licorice, light coffee. Medium-to-full bodied, soft mouthfeel. A solid and satisfying stout.

Terminator Stout is the quintessential Northwest dark beer. It is ultra-dark in color and highly-carbonated. Buttery smooth going down and Iíd have six at a clip if only I could walk afterwards.

Many thanks to Baker for the bomber!.. I believe he said it was from 2006. Poured a healthy shade of deep brown with a short, swirly cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweet and darker chocolates over a bed of aged molasses and vanilla.. a little bit warm, but mostly aged and sweet. The flavor found slightly tart coffee malts throughout, with related bitterness long gone.. blended bakerís chocolate and molasses joined on the middle.. charred earth and slight smoke around.. finished with grainy coffee and molasses notes joined by campfire smoke. Medium-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. age broke this down a bit and it was likely grainier than it used to be.. for the most part, though, everything was melded together well and this was a tasty drink.
