Moosington (28) - Costa Mesa, California, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Pours a dark brown/black with a cloudy tan head. Sweet caramel/hops and roasted coffee in the nose. Sweet malt at first in the flavor with a turn to heavy roasted dry finish with just enough carbonation.

piscator34 (1964) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 16, 2008
Bottled sample. Near black in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas of milk chocolate, caramel, roasted malts, minty and woody hops, along with a hint of red grapes. Fairly choco-sweet upfront in the mouth with a lot of rich malt flavors (for a dry stout), before the mineral-like drying effect of the dark roasted malts kick in. A well put together stout, but perhaps a little sweet to be considered a dry stout. Very tasty.

Getting notebook online. Bottle. Pours a good black. Malty nose. A little thin and watery in taste. Not too bad.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Pours a very very dark brown nearly black with a thick foamy tan head. Aroma is very strong chocolate malt with some serious roasted nut notes. Very sweet and not much hop presence. Just a hint of some dark fruitiness. Flavor starts out very strong on the malt and sugary sweetness, mostly like maple syrup and a bit of a smokey character. A tiny hint of a cola sort of flavor in the background, which adds to the bitterness in the finish which is very quick and very dry. Medium body and high carbonation. Decent Irish stout, a little strange in some aspects (the cola like finish for example) but not unpleasant. This one ends up a little above middle of the road.

HonkeyBra (3370) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2008
Bomber from Jimbowood. Pours black with a big, fizzy tan head. Aroma of smoke, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits. Flavor is roasty and sour, chocolatey malt flavor and a dry finish. I’m impressed by this brew.

Huge head. Lots of caramel. Has quite a sour fruity tang to it. Chocolate, coffee. Interesting beer, not sure if it’s intentionally tangy.

Pours black body with a large tan head. Smoky, coffee aroma. Flavor is roasted malt sweetness and coffee. It’s quite dry with a thin body. Tolerable overall.
