Draft poured @BusboysandPoets in Hyattsville, MD. Solid, dark pour. Creamy, foamy, tan head. Great chocolate, coffee nose. Bitter on the palate. Taste did not live up to nose. Dry backend.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2013 Tasted from bomber bottle into a tulip pint glass. It poured an opaque dark reddish brown colour with deep fluffy tan head of spritzy little bubbles, long-lasting with lots of lace. Aromas of chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, toasted malts, cherry syrup. Flavours of a tart London Porter plus cocoa nibs, bright coffee-like acidity, balanced hoppy bitterness. Full, bready mouthfeel, medium carbonation, lingering bittersweet aftertaste. Nice and drinkable, but complex and clever at the same time. Good stuff.

Bomber. Pour us dark brownish black with a tan head that fades pretty quick but decent lacing. Smell is dark malt, chocolate syrup, a little coffee. Taste is a lot mellower than the aroma. Soft notes of milk chocolate and baker's chocolate, a bit of coffee and a finishing hop bitterness that gives it balance. Mouthfeel is a bit thin for the style, but this is otherwise quite good.

Strong scent of chocolate. Opaque dark brown colour. Chocolate flavour with notes of burnt caramel and malt. Medium body with mild carbonation. Would definitely buy again.

65 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a lot of sediment and a tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour is milk chocolate, cocoa, and a little vanilla – with a slightly bitter finish. Aroma is better than flavour – a little watery.

Not much chocolate. Had aroma and taste of vanilla. Almost a fake vanilla taste. Thin mouthfeel. Disappointing.

Almost a non existent aroma, but a roasty chocolaty is barely noticeable. Full bodied middle flavor that is full of chocolate and a bit of roasted coffee. It has a medium finish that is not too bitter

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance - black with tan head
Mouthfeel - medium carb bite
Aroma - expected chocolate but not much there. Very light chocolate.
Taste - slight hop like most stouts. Chocolate finish. Not a heavy chocolate but more subtle. Mostly the aftertaste.
Overall - this is good but gets sweet after a while. It's pretty good. Would drink during colder weather.

Aromas of roast, dark milk chocolate, and citrusy hops. Dark ruby, almost black, with a lasting light tan head. Dry, roasty, and bitter with prevalent notes of burnt chocolate. Medium bodied, very smooth, creamy, and finishes with lingering notes of bitter hops and roasted malts.
