3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber pours out a dark brown with a thin, quickly receding tan head. Lots of coffee and chocolate in the aroma, but sruprisinlgy light on the hops for a FFF brew. Very smooth, creamy medium body with very light carbonation, and a silky mouthfeel. Sweet, light molasses character with a milk chocolate character, and little in the way of bitterness. Certainly a different type of offering from FFF.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from my friend Cheryl. Pours dark brown with a huge brown head. Medium to full bodied with a creamy texture- rich and smooth but not thick. Aroma is milky and roasty. Flavor of dark chocolate, milk, and mild roasted malts, countered by a moderate hoppiness and a hint of anise. I like the amount of attenuation on this one. Finish is slightly dry and acidic. Nice beer. Bottle says Milk Stout, but perhaps a bit too hoppy for that. Thatís ok, the beer works for me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Black in color with a very small beige head. aroma is of mocha, hot chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, and marshmallow. Taste is a lot like a 3 musketeers bar with chocolate, mocha and marshmallow.

22 oz. bottle - thanks riversideak!! light brown with thin tan head; texture is thin and it drinks smooth; kind of a cross between a porter and stout; aromas of chocolate, sweet candy, vanilla and touch of spice; very nice, but didnít jump out much to me

aroma is a bit weak, some sweetness and the slight kibble like smell. there is a sweetness with a touch of coffee and fruit. smooth around but gives some over fizz.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma is good except for a touch of cat food. There is also cream, coffee, chocolate, and toasted malt. The appearance is dark brown with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma minus the cat food. The palate is average for the style. Overall itís a nice tasting, quality beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle shared by riversideAK. Pours dark dark brownish black in color with a thinner looking body and a condensed off-white head. Nose is mildly roasty with some sweeter mocha notes. Taste is more of the same, with some smooth creaminess but not a overly thick. Good and easy drinking.

Bottle from BeerBunker. Dark pour, almost black, thin foamy head. The aroma is somewhat roasty with a good amount of sweetness too. Dark chocolate, mocha, roast, a little soy, and a touch of lactic flavors too. Smooth and very drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample from my man StFun - thanks, Josh! Been eager to try this, and the beer did not disappoint. The mouthfeel wasnít quite as thick as Iíd like, but it was still lovely and rich. Love the play of the creamy palate and the lactic flavors, but thereís a surprisingly deep hop presence to this too, and a long dark chocolate finish. Nice one!
