Bomber to snifter (shared by brew3crew). Looks good; a fairly opaque black with sticky beige lacing. Smells solid; dark malt and chocolate with a bit of mint and oxidization. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2013
22 oz. bottle served in a Deschutes snifter. Thanks stxSS07 for the share. A: Pours a dark black color with a dark mocha head forming on the pour. It recedes quickly to a thin ring that leaves some splotchy lace down the glass. S: Some oxidation as you would expect, but in a sherry kind of way. No real paper or cardboard notes, but slightly dark and pretty fruity. Dark chocolate bitterness with some dried oats. T: Much like the nose. Bitter dark chocolate, steel cut oats, light dark fruit with minimal oxidation. The booze is well hidden behind a touch a char. M: Medium thick bodied with a lower carbonation level. Smooth and creamy finish. O: This held up very nicely and the slight oxidation gave it a dark fruit character that complimented the bitter dark chocolate nicely. Serving type: bottle

LoFi (1595) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle from trade with Hop20, cheers buddy! Pitch black with a dark brown head. Aroma: chocolate mousse, coffee, dark fruit, licorice. Taste: loads of licorice, cocoa, dark wine gums, coffee, milk chocolate, oatmeal cookies with raisins, creamy. Full-bodied, smooth. Man, this is so delicious! If this was bitter from the chocolate when it was released, then instead time has made it very smooth and well-balanced. Thanks again for suggesting this!

maneliquor (3286) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle shared with Aj over christmas. Pours black with a small tan head which quickly disappears. Nose shows bitter dark chocolate, oats, a touch of alcohol, plum, raisins/sultanas and vanilla. Taste is sweet vanilla and raisins. Like chocolate covered sultanas but boozy. Bitter sweet finish to this one. Higher carbonation than I was expecting. A very well made beer. Not sure if the ageing has improved it or now but it is good stuff

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2012
From July 2008 bomber. Alcohol, vanilla, licorice, chocolate and chocolate malts, some papery essence or a bit of oxidation. No obvious hop variety aroma. Deep dark black opaque with thin lacing cocoa-tan head. Heavy body, almost chewy, with medium carbonation and light alcoholic warming. Starts with carbonic acidity, mild sweetness, lot of dry bitter chocolate, licorice, and molasses. A bit of coffee and smoke, too. Tangy finish with nutty bitterness and light chalky chocolate notes in the after. Certainly not over sweet.

dogfishho (599) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - NOV 27, 2012
This is from a while ago... Pours nearly opaque with a bright, light tan head. The aroma is filled with chocolate and caramel. On the palate, the chocolate and toffee also show the characteristic slickness of an oatmeal stout. The abv is extremely well hidden. Great stuff!

JPDurden24 (1622) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Dark black pour with a tan head. Plenty of dark chocolate and roast in the aroma with nice bittersweet flavor as the name suggests. It was shared from a friends cellar and was very good.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Bottle. Poured an opaque black color with a lasting brown head. Smelled of dark chocolate, anise, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and molasses. Medium bodied with fleeting delicate sugars replaced by mild to moderate bitterness and a kick warming, sharp alcohol. Chocolate liqueur, cinnamon, and dark fruit flavors.
