Bottle… Pours clear and very dark. Sits black with a mid-size, creamy, beige head. Great retention. The bouquet is of milk chocolate and toasted nuts. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with tingly carbonation. Heavy notes of unsweetened, burnt espresso in the flavor – lesser note of cocoa. Lengthy, charred, medium bitter finish that leaves my tongue novocain numb. Bottle courtesy of giarcsr. Thanks ryan!

Medium, dry body with flavors of charred malt, roasty coffee and hops. The finish is roasty with a coffee aftertaste. Above average overall.

651mL thanks to ygtbsm94. Great head formation- thick tan lace with amazing retention atop clear, deep cola. Amaretto nose with toasted pecans. Taste is hoppy and bitter with oily chocolate. Not bad at all. Mild lactose finish with muted ash and milk chocolate. Mild cocoa. I liked this one even though it’s a bit oily.

marcus (7438) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 5, 2009
This black ale poured with a rich tan head and a strong chocolate aroma. There is also a lot of chocolate in the flavor, which is smooth but sort of thin. It’s a decent oatmeal stout, but not among the best of the style.

Bomber. Poured a healthy shade of deep brown with way too much deep tan head going on. The aroma picked up semi-sweet chocolate and rolled oats, with a detergenty character laced throughout.. warm molasses filled the back of the nose.. a bit airy and seemed a touch off. The flavor found molasses and burnt cocoa at the core, with odd, almost metallic, almost sour, kinda detergenty stuff laced throughout, and heavy roast on the edges.. finished dry and grainy, with more of the odd stuff. Medium-bodied and too carbonated on the palate.. the carbo hurt the assumed creaminess.. this seemed like it may have been infected, and I’d gladly try it again.
