Bomber, 2007? I don’t recall who sent this to me - thanks to whoever! Black with a very thin brown head. Nose is sweet, roasty malt and chocolate, a bit of plum. Satiny body, on the full side of medium. Rich chocolate flavors, mildly acidic, a bit of burnt malt, moderately bitter, a tinge of pine. Tasty! Fairly dry finish, a bit of citrus shines through. Excellent.

toncatcher (228) - Santee - SAN DIEGO, California, USA - NOV 25, 2007
Picked some up at the release of Older Viscosity. Pours black with a moderate creamy tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, some dark fruit, but just a little. Taste, it starts of with lots of bitter sweet coffee and then comes a booxy sort of bittersweet chocolate. Nice mouthfeel and very nice overall.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2007
22oz bottle. Pours very deep brown, nearly opaque, with a moderate sized brown head. Roasted malt aroma with bittersweet chocolate, brown sugar and herbs, with some vinous quality. Rich chocolate flavor up front, with some spice. Coffee flavors come in towards the finish, along with alcohol and some hops. Finishes dry and moderately bitter. Body is a bit thinner than I expected. Very drinkable; nice stout.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - NOV 21, 2007
Nice tango of roasted malts, deep fruits and bakers cocoa touch the nose. No astringency which is the IMPY stout killer for me. Slightly sweet and mildly hopped on the palate this beer dances a wonderful depth and silky mouthfeel at the same time.

DocLock (8949) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2007
Bottle from Capone’s. Deep black with 1-finger tan head. and great concentric circular lace rings. Aroma is molasses, chocoff, brown sugar, dark malt, raisins. tastes dark malty, with chocolate, molasses, figs, and mild coffee, but much more chocolate, with a rich, complex palate. Not quite as dense or hoppy as Alpha Klaus, and this one gets pretty hot toward the end and waters out a bit. Still, it is a very nice winter libation.

Bottle. Aroma of chocolate and caramel. Pours a dark brown. Flavor is burnt malts, coffee, molasses and brown sugar. Palate is sweet sticky yet thin and grinchly bitter. Overall it’s not bad.
