22oz bottle, no date. Almost opaque deep brown with a one finger tan head, pretty decent retention. Roasted malts up front, with espresso (of course), with some chocolate chip cookies. do I get a hint of pine? The flavor, for the most part, loses its cookie sweetness. Roasted and scorched malts follow through to the finish, but not before semisweet chocolate and pine make a swift appearance. Ashy roasty finish with bitterness peaking around a 3. Soft creamy medium body with low pinpoint carbonation. Pretty good stout--glad I picked this up while in California.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - MAY 31, 2008
From a bottle at the Beer Fest in Davis, CA. Poured a dark brown with a small head. Smelled of chocolate and roasted malts. Upon first taste it was very Guiness like, smooth and creamy, but also little more complex and full bodied. Slightly bitter finish.

From a 22 oz bottle tis poured into my Duvel glass a very dark brown that looked almost black. Rich nose of roasted chocolate malts and coffee, vanilla, and smoke. Rich creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is rich and the hops and malts are well balanced. Nice dry bitter finish. Most enjoyable.

mmm, dry stout--a simple, quaffable little thing that is actually in this example a bit rich and flavorful; it could use even less hops, a bit more cocoa and alcohol, but thatís just me :o)

One of the best Dry Irish Stouts Iíve ever had. Pours black with a very short tan head. Mild aroma of roasted chocolate malt and cereal. Delicious taste that is balanced well. Coffee, chocolate, cream, smoke, and vanilla are all there and compliment each other without drowning out the flavor. The hops balance the sweetness and give it the dry bite and finish. Excellent.

Bomber bottle from Jungle Jimís. Pours black color with a large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Medium roasted sweet malty aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Medium chocolate bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Brewsmith (148) - Torrance, California, USA - MAY 4, 2008
From a 22 oz. bottle purchased locally. Aroma is roasty with a little malty fruitiness. Color is a deep brown with a tan head that dissapated quickly. Not quite opaque. Flavor is roasty and dry. Strong bitter chocolate flavors. Balanced bitterness, not overly hoppy. Full bodied, smooth silky mouthfeel, easy drinking. A very nice dry stout.
