Thanks richlikebeer for sharing this damn nice brew. Aroma was chocolate,coffee and a steamy milk. Poured black with a cream head. Taste was goood, chocolate and vanilla woody character with lactose to finish. I found it to be very enjoyable that could easily turn in to two or three more.

handbottled bomber courtesy of Duane, poured a solid black with a thin cream colored lacing. aromas of burnt coffee, chocolate, molasses and steamed milk, almost creating an expresso/cappucino smell. amazingly smooth chocolate flavor, lactose at the end, burnt coffee and some sweet vanilla in the middle. velvety smooth body, slides down your throat. a little bit acetic tail, but this could be a result of the heat during transport...either way, a very nice sweet stout. thanks alot duane

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ GTMW. Moderate viscosity and midnight brown in color with a few streaks of tan for the head. Toned down aroma, with some rich chocolate, caramel currents in fudge brownies and dark chocolate fudge. Flavor begins with a lovely creamy milk chocolate persona that Iíd have any day of the week to stow away in a milk carton and drink with my lunch. Rich chocolate morsels, like spooning out the cookie batter and putting more in your mouth than on the cookie sheet. Some brown sugar and maple oatmea. Medium bodied. This flavor is bitching. A delectable stout.

This beerís got a great aroma and appearance. Black with grey head. The first few sips are nice and sweet. Then it just tastes really chalky and itís quite unappealing. The mouth fell is a little grainy like there are some bits in it.

On tap at the brewery. Milk chocolate and espresso aroma. Pitch black with fine brown head. Tastes like a chocolate malt. Very full bodied and sticky. Reminds me of a Irish Car Bomb. If you are not familiar, get a pint of stout, and drop a shot of Irish Cream in it, the chug. The difference is that I didnít chug this, and it was much more enjoyable.

growler from the brewery. this is one of those beers that needs to warm up a bit to really enjoy all of the flavors. pours an inky, oily black with a ruby edge and a quickly fading tan head. aromas of coffee, dark fruit ( prunes, raisins ) & milk sugar. flavors of oatmeal, more dark fruit, coffee & cream without any bitterness or burnt edges. nothing over the top, but a well done brew and worth the effort to obtain!

Rating #333... Iím only half evil.
Black and oily with no head. Aromas were fairly weak, with only some roasted coffee and a hint of raisin. Moderately sweet in flavor to start with huge coffee bitterness coming through right after. More raisin and prune after that. Syrupy and oily to create a slick mouthfeel. Would pair well with Beethovenís Ninth.

At the brewery: Almost black in color with a creamy-yet-bubbly brown head, the aroma is of roasted malts, burnt coffee, and a touch of dark fruits. Very, very creamy to drink. This tastes alot like coffee with real cream with slight hints of sweet malt and chocolate.Very tasty and creamy through the finish. Drink on, me droogs.

Tap, sampled out of a lovely plastic vessel alongside BBB63 during the great exodus. Black colored with a quick fading head, somehow lacing is left decently. Much coffee detected in aroma along with some sweet notes also. Medium bodied. Roasty, smooth, lactic sweetness remains in the shadows pleasantly. Quite nicely done!
