Pours like iodine w/ a full, creamy spattered froth. Decent hangtime w/ a full milky canopy and lacing. Aromas of mildly roasted, buttery panckes. Nice! Thats a first. Medium full nectar w/ soft and creamy residual effers. The texture is like silk. This brew is balanced right out of the bull pin. Big roasted malts and a decent hop profile marry well. The buttery essence carries into the flavor and gives it a very unique character. Bitter cocoa, roasted coffee bean, leather, deep black cherry, slight vanilla. I would say this is dry but not parching. It leaves a mild coat of molases on board. The finish is long and bittered perfectly leaving my palate searching for the next sip. Overall: this heavy brew is so well balanced I could drink it all night long. There are very few stouts I can say this about. Good job! Highly recommended.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2004
On tap at RFD in DC. Dark with a great head, mocha colored and very bubbly, amazing retention. Nice nose, roasty and lightly malty, some dark fruit/molasses and bitter coffee. Great flavor, darkly sweet and rich up front and, after the swallow, gets bready and toasty, blends to some lightly citric roasts at the end. Sticky, creamy, and full. Exceptionally good stuff.

Pours a deep dense black with tons of head. Lace is plentiful on my glass. Smells rich of burnt choclate, coffee, dark roasted malts. Flavor opens bitter and acidic, I can almost feel the enamel peeling away from my teeth. Well hopped is this stout. Burnt molases, dark chocolate, espresso and sweet brown sugar hit the taste buds. Mouthfeel is medium and very clean, finishes with a light chocolate syrup and moderate coating on the throat. This is one of the finest examples of the style that I have encountered, extremely drinkable.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 5, 2007
Fresh from the 22-ounce bottle its sets an onyx color, the head a two-fingered chocolate brown, creamy and as it ever so slowly vanishes, the lace forms a thick and surrounding sheet. Nose is full of chocolate, sweet and chewy, hops and a bit of smoke backs it up, a delectable treat for the olfactory senses. Front is rich in malt, sweet and thick, hops and burnt grain provide a delectable spicy bitterness, top is full bodied and rich. Finish has a fair to middling acidity, the hops pleasingly spicy, a touch of warming and the aftertaste thick and dry, a stout lovers dream.

This is quite nice. Not a lot of aroma. Great black color with tan head. Flavor is sweet and roasty with a bit of hoppy graininess in the finish. Smooth and tasty.

22 oz bomber purchased at Southbay Liquor. This black stout lives up to its name alone just by the appearance it will show. Such a pure pitch black you can tell evil was behind this and the rigorous forth head will provide proof this is a dark beer to reckon with. Has a very sweet and robust aroma that is decked with dark roast malt and hints of sugar or sweet caramel candy. In the flavor, the same can be said because of the rich dark malt and lush texture that combines for a sweet and delightful creation.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2010 more like an imperial bottled guiness...without the urine aspect. this was best in show at the Sierra Brewfest ’09 as one of the only memorable beers. big roasted chocolate malt and coffee, medium bodied, higher abv at nearly 7% and the classic dry irish finish. VERY good beer.

Bomber. Pours a pretty opaque black with short-lived tan head. Aroma is of baker’s chocolate and burnt coffee. Initial flavor is flat, then followed by a rich bouquet of cocoa, sweet espresso, anise and molasses. The palate on this beer is complex and lasting. Really tasty, with a nice raisin finish. A good one here.

Bottle shared at Craft Beer Co., London. Brown pour, light tan head. Nice sweetness, pleasant cocoa notes. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Sweet yet restrained roast in the finish, some mocha lingers. Very good.
