growler. aroma is sharp chocolate, general roast, seems balanced immediately. flavor is sizzling cocoa and only a trace of the sweetness expected, easily quaffable and devoid of cloying notes. mushy chocolate pleases.

Bomber pours an opaque dark brown with small tan head and some lacing. Not much to smell, but aroma is full of roasted malts, some coffee, and a bit of vanilla in a the finish. Body is medium without too much carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet and mouthfeel is creamy. A good,stout from a favorite local brewer.

Pitch black pour with lively off white head. Nose mainly of roast and coffee. Taste if roast, coffee, and chocolate. A little to heavy on carb but creamy. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber from beer frig at lake...pours black with nose and initial taste of chocolate and coffee...thin tan head with nice lacing. Sweet and smooth...a little thin for a typical stout but creamy overall / smooth taste make up for it...smooth and tasty.

Sweet, chocolate roasted malt aroma. Sweet malt flavor, with some allspice-like spiciness. Thanks, Sledutah...

On-tap. A - Dark black color with a large, creamy, foamy, thick, khaki head. Good retention with a thick creamy layer of lace. S - Good amount of roasted dark and milk chocolate and malt with touches of coffee and caramel. A sweet lactose aroma also comes out, but it isn’t overly strong for a Milk Stout. T - Similar to the nose with a good balance of sweet lactose and sweet creaminess along with the roasted chocolate and malt. Hints of vanilla also come out. Some roasted coffee and caramel and a touch of earthiness. It tastes somewhere between a typical Milk Stout and a regular stout with a good level of lactose sweetness but also has a touch of a roasted/bitterness to it. M - Medium body that is a touch thin for the style and ABV but not bad. Good amount of carbonation with a smooth and creamy feel. D - Very drinkable beer with a great mix of roasted flavors and sweet lactose. Different kinds of chocolate/cocoa flavors come out. Well balanced beer. Alcohol is pretty well hidden, but gives a slight warming. Notes: A very nice Milk Stout that has a great balance between the sweet lactose aspects and the more bitter roasted chocolate aspects. Definitely worth a try.

On tap at the brewpub.
Pours a deep, inky black that allows only shades of dark chestnut along the edges. A creamy off-white head sits atop the ink for nearly the duration of the drinking session. Aroma is a bit faint but gives up roast grain, a little chocolate, a dose of vanilla, a tiny hint of oak, and a smidgen of dried dark fruits. Flavor is crunchy bitter-roast grains tempered by sweet chocolate, cream, lactose, a bit of vanilla, and yep, there’s that tiny touch of dried fruits again. Palate is thick and creamy with a roast-grain aftertaste. Quite drinkable.

A lactose-heavy milk stout. Very sweet, but supported by roasty bitterness and hints of chocolate. Full body. Nice, comforting.

Pour deep brown with tan head. Taste has toffee and malt with lactose sugar prevelant. Smooth but kind of bland, not the best milk stout out there.
