UPDATED: OCT 14, 2007 Holy crap. The color is black, oily. Darker than any "stout" Iíve ever seen. Thick creamy brown head. The aroma was sweet, dark sugar, molasses, rich roased chocolate, coffee, an earthy burnt wood, and alcohol. The flavor was rich rich rich, coffee, burnt wood, bakers chocolate, alcohol, warming impyish quality, very malty, waxy hoppy aftertaste. The palate is complex, it has a warming quality from the alcohol and yet the brew has a smooth cool feel in your mouth. One of the most complex and satisfying beers Iíve ever had.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2008 Bottle: Pours a beautiful opaque black with an extremely dark brown, thick, head with good retention. Has an enormously rich aroma. Deeply kilned malts, rich chocolates, espresso/mocha, freshly ground coffee beans, licorice, tobacco and even more. Very creamy, velvety mouth feel with nice, subtle, mild carbonation. Tons is anise and licorice with everything else you could want in a Stout. Espresso, tiramisu, licorice, dark chocolate truffle, a boozy quality, burnt flavors and so much else. The finish has a ton of dryness to balance out the ridiculous body. An exceptional Stout that should be classified as an Imperial.

Black beer with a dark brown head. Coffee, roast,chocolate aroma with the coffee getting stronger. Coffee flavor with a bit of chocolate and late astringency. LIngering coffee, licorice. Fuller bodied. Nice complexity. Too much coffee for my tastes, but still a very good beer

Tried at Lost Abbey Brunch with awaisanen and cquiroga. Tan thick head with microbubbles. Pitch black color. Great appearance. Nicer end of roasty, chocolatey taste, with no sourness (that I donít like in roasty beers). Medium body, which was thinner than I was expecting. Leans a bit toward dry. Pretty drinkable and best with a meal.

22 oz. bottle - To say this beer is midnight black would be like calling a Model T white. This beer is DARK even for a stout. There is a tremendous cocoa colored head that lasts forever. Flavor- If you pay attention, you can actually discern the coffee from the oatmeal flavors. This beer is is loaded with flavors. Very good.

Bomber. Pours black black with a rocky head thatís very brown... dark all around. The aroma reminds me of oatmeal, with a strong cappuccino character and little whiffs of vanilla and licorice. The flavor is smooth coffee almost immediately. There is also some sweet chocolate and noticeable oats. The middle has some vanilla and nut tones, but still a bunch of coffee and oats. The coffee isnít overwhelming, but it does stick around. Licorice emerges in the finish after a while, and even a little bit of hoppiness. Great stuff. I want another.

22 oz Bomber-Poured jet black w/a slight tan head. WOW, thats all I can say about this one. Intense coffee aroma & flavor, like drinking an espresso w/a kick. Has some traces of chocolate & roasted almonds as well, but the coffee is prodominant. Rich mouthfeel w/a finish of roasted malt which does balance it out well. Long full finish, great after dinner beer, very enjoyable.

Bottle via The_Epeeist, thanks Chris! Pours oily black color with a dense tan colored head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, roast, toffee. Flavor is again roast, chocolate, nice blast of coffee but definitely kept in check. Palate is full bodied, medium to mildly carbonated, finishes dry and bitter. This is one bad ass brew. The coffee is not overpowering, just adds to the depth of the beer.
