COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This has an initial malt and light caramel flavor and finishes with a dry roasted bitterness. Itís character is dominated by the coffee like aroma and taste from the roasted barley. Balanced out with a perfect amount of hops to smooth out the big malt flavor in every pint of this stout.

22oz bottle from CBX. Pours a midnight black with no head at all. I get a nice earthy, grassy, woody aroma and tiny bit of coffee. Very light and crisp for such a dark beer. A little on the watery side for my liking though. Taste of a touch of burnt toast, coffee, earthy. Overall just ok. Nice flavor notes, but nothing really brings it all together for me and a bit watery.

Bomber shared by emacgee. Thanks Ethan. Dark brown with a little carbonation and a small tan head. Nose of roast, smoke, coconut, vanilla. Flavor is similiar but I found it a little astrtingent and thin in the finish.

Leathery, slight cocoa, a bit bitter in the finish. Pours with pretty much no head, a drinkable enough beer but not really as good as Iíd hoped. Itís got the makings of a far better thing, and the addition of a more notable hop flavor would be appreciated.

22oz bottle split with my brother. Black pour with a medium tan head. Nose of roasted malt and dry ash with a bit of chocolate. Roasted and chocolate malt flavor with a bit of a thin finish. Decent dry stout with some potential, but needs to be a bit more flavorful on the back end.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a dark brown/black color with a half inch tan head that went away quickly. Thereís also a decent amount of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, and some coffee. Taste is similar to the aroma, but the coffee flavor overpowers the others. Thereís also a bit of a charred/burnt malt taste noticable. Mouthfeel/body is light and a bit watery. Decent carbonation. This is one of the lightest stouts Iíve had in a long time. With that being said, this beer is easy to drink. With the 5% ABV, it is a sessionable stout. Not a bad brew overall, my main complaint with this beer is that it is very light for a stout. Hopefully that can be fixed in the future.

Draft at WBF Dark pour with a fluffy tan head. Aroma is coffee driven with subtle hints of cocoa. Chalky, with roast, coffee, and bittersweet chocolate

This poured a very dark brown with a light tan head. Aroma was dark roasted malts, some bittering hops and light coffee. Flavor was alot dryer than the aroma, just smooth dark roasted malt, but just enough sweetness to keep it balanced. A very nice drinking dry stout.

cheap (3975) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2010
Big black oily looking pour, reminds me of the used 50w oil that comes out of my shovelhead. Burnt charcoal aroma, perhaps some birch or beech or clove or something in the background, all in a good way. From a bomber poured into a big glass mug. Appears thicker than it is on the palate. Decent carbonation for a dry stout and I like that. Yes, fairly well mannered for a stout. Easy to drink, even fun at times. Choco dark, coffee but not bitter. Actually its difficult to find any traces of bitterness or rudeness in this brew.Gentle but effective dark beer. $4 for this cheap bomber, excellent deal! Good tingle thru-out even to the bottom of the glass. Finish chewing on old damp campfire coals. Pleasant beer experience. Would not hesistate to buy again.

Bomber. Pours a dark brown with little head. Aromas are a mix of leather, peat and charcoal and a bit of stale coffee. Flavor is decent enough... mimics the aromas pretty well, but comes off as fairly thin at times. Chocolate is a new addition on the palate, and finish is slightly bitter with hints of peat and coffee.
