Bomber. Pours a black color with a nice creamy, light-brown head, good lacing. Very good looking pour. Aroma is mainly roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, and a touch of fruit. Flavor is similar, maybe plum, chocolate, a bit boozy as it warms. Bitter chocolaty finish. Decent body, a bit watery. Pretty rich, and a little too alcoholic as it warms. Very good beer nonetheless.

Dark pour, minimal tan head. Nose is somewhat floral rounded out by light citrus, hops, and dark chocolate. Flavor is bitter (surprise!), with molasses and an overall roasted flavor. Not unlike the Russian Imperial Stout by Stone. Moderate fizzy mouthfeel.

Yep. I like it. But wow that’s a lot of chocolate! Aroma isn’t real huge but contains small amounts chocolate and oatmeal. Appearance is very dark black with a rich, dark tan head. The flavor is great! HUGE chocolate at first, masking a very slight alcohol taste (however, not unpleasant, in this case.) The cool part is that the chocolate stays in your mouth for several minutes and leaves a great, sweet taste. This is very exciting! Overall impression is quite favorable!

Great chocolate stout! Big on dark chocolate and roasted coffee flavor. I would say its on par with the Imperial Russian Stout but lots more chocolate. The high alcohol is an added bonus but you wont notice it!

22 oz bottle; july release. Pours a deep black. The first layer of head is a lasting and fine caramel colored ring with a crown of creamy white superfine head. Smoke and alcohol dominate the aroma but it also includes roasted malts and sweet coffee liquor. The bitterness is more than expected and very welcome for a stout. This is no doubt from the rich cacoa that dominates initial taste. This is followed by a medium bitterness and a long, very pleasant, smoked coffee finish. My expectations from a stone are relatively high and this did not dosappoint. An excellent desert in itself.

This was a dark pour with definite chocolate scents and flavor. This had a complex build up of flavors and alcohol warming/flavor. I have one being aged right now so we will see how it turns out. I think my expectations of this beer were to high... I mean come on chocolate and oatmeal.

Dark black pour, Dark brown 2 finger head. Some lacing on glass. Slight burnt masty smell, taste is the same with a hint of chocolate and oat. Hard to tell 9.2% well put together stout. Will drink again.

Pours dark black with a brown head. The aroma is malty. Taste like dark chocolate with a roasted malt after taste.

~ Purchased this 22 oz bomber from New Beer Distributors in Manhattan, NY. This stout pours black with a dark tan head that vanishes into oblivion. It smells of bitter chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and a touch of alcohol. The taste is amazing! It’s smooth, silky, and highly drinkable. At 9.2% ABV, this went down effortlessly. A must try. Highly recommended! ~

Very thick and chocolatey, Almost completely opaque and feels full on the tongue. Light carbonation. There is a little heat from the alcohol but the beer is so dense that it is in the background,
