Bomber from Guerde - thanks guy! Pours very dark brown with a slight dark tan head. Aroma is dark malt, chocolate, and a touch of resin. Ful bodied. Flavor is smooth burnt malt, very dark chocolate, coffee, and I think some resin. The bitter prickles in the mouth. Smooth and rich it is. Finishes burnt malt, chocolate, coffee and bitter. Good drink.

Bottle shared by ab3shine. Poured black color with an average frothy light brown head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Medium to heavy dark malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted dark bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good and my expectations where met.

Thanks to Bob for the bomber. Poured deep brown with a dense, well-retained khaki head. The aroma picked up sweet milk chocolates and rolled oats, with fresh earthy accents.. sweet overall, and very pleasant to smell. The flavor found sweet and a little darker chocolate at the core, with plenty of ashy, well-roasted black malts too.. a touch of fruit joined sweet chocolate, oats, and roasty black malt on the long, dry, tasty finish. Medium-bodied, well-carbonated, and silky on the palate.. loved the lingering roast and bitterness.. great brew!

Courtesy of hellbilly. Pours deep and dark with nice looking mocha like head. The light aroma offers up earthy notes, some dark roasted malts and a touch of chocolate. The taste is pretty rich with dark roasted malts and some chocolate that roll headlong into some spicy and earthy hops. The earthy hops seem to give a sense of oxidation that may detract from the experience, but not for me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In short: A dirty stout with a bit of many things that donít all work together.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed a few months after receiving it from oakbluff, thanks a lot Scott.
The look: Very dark brown (near black) body topped by a small tan head.
In long: Low-intensity nose of roasted chestnuts, mocha chocolate bar and earthy notes. Body size is medium, texture is a bit juicy/oily for the style, medium carbonation. Taste is a bit strange. Basic elements of roast, mocha coffee, roasted chestnuts chocolate and others clash with a weird acidity and also a strong sensation of dirt/earth that turns into dirty tobacco in the finish. That beer really feels dirty-earthy. Alcohol is more apparent than it should be in a 7% beer. Not an offensive beer but not something I need to drink again. The lamest Dissent since wearing socks of different colors to show solidarity against racial discrimination.

Pour on tap at Winterfest 2012, dark brownish pour with thin tan head, aroma brought nice roasted malt, dark chocolate and slight coffee, hints of fruit in there as well, some nice molasses and caramel notes as well in there. Taste is a nice mix of chocolate and toffee, hints of coffee, nice roasted malt character with a bit of char, the oats give it a decent mouthfeel, finishes fairly bitter.

Tap at the brewery. Very dark pour with a beautiful reddish brown head. Great aroma of roasted malts and molasses. Taste is rich roasted oats, slight sweetness, and a bit of hop kick. Terrific.
