thirdeye11 (5620) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2012
(22oz bomber) clear deep black, lasting wispy deep tan bubbles. Nose of honey, chocolate, bakers style, rich and decadent. Taste of dark chocolate, bit earthy, cocoa nibs, well carbonated, medium body.

brewolf (169) - Wilderness, WA, USA, - APR 9, 2012
Very dark brown with a frothy tan head. Strong roast, coffee, and chocolate in the nose. Nose also shows smoke and robust earthy notes along with some grassy hops. Flavor follows the nose and adds some scorched cracker and a bit of molasses. Toffee, roasted nuts, and hops linger in the finish. Medium body, a little oily, active carb, and ample bitterness. Would rather this was 6.5% or so, but Iím glad it is at least under 8%. Pretty tasty, with some complexity. Iíve always appreciated this style for its balance between the over-done and the bland.

blipp (6249) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Draft. Pours black with a brown head. Dry roasty aroma with some nice nutty sweetness. The flavor has roasted malts, light coffee, light nutty sweetness, and some smokey wisps. Solid.

Chalsk (1068) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - MAR 17, 2012
On tap at Gingerman. Pours a black color with a caramel color head. Nice roasty aroma with some caramel and chocolate notes mixed in. Has that sweet stout mouthfeel and vanilla notes. Nice bitter layer for balance. Chocolate notes linger through the finish. Very tasty. Sort of like an imperial milk stout.

bhensonb (11389) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours black with a 3 finger foamy/creamy darkish tan head. Aroma is chocolate toffee. Full bodied. Flavor is chocolate, anise, toffee, coffee. Itís not exactly dry, but itís quite bitter. So complex I have no idea what the bitter is from. But it is. Great taste.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Bomber from some joint in SF, shared with the fam. Thick, sludgy black pour with a huge filmy head. Earthy and dark. Very powerful nose of chocolate, coffee, and nutty bread. Mouthfeel is robust, moderately carbonated, slightly chalky in places (which of course is just the ticket with this brand of stout). Hints of a metallic and dry finish, almost like an oyster stout in places. But itís like chocolate bread, well balanced with bitter coffee. Very fine.
