Mike_in_Kansas (23) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle from 10/2012 into an English pint glass. Color was a very dark brown to black; small creamy light tan head with good lacing that diminished quicker than expected. Light toasted malt with tones of raisin and flowers. Somewhat sweet initial flavor quickly turning to burned acidic finish, not entirely pleasant. Medium/full bodied with creamy texture, light carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured into a perfect pint. 3.5 A: Black color. Two fingers of frothy light brown head. Retention is about average and a decent amount of lacing is left. 3.25 S: Roasted barley, tangy lactose, licorice. Some caramel, molasses, and maybe a note of coffee. 3.0 T: Iím not too crazy about the taste. Itís a little too roasty or perhaps not sweet enough. The roast clashes with the lactose. Itís not bad, just not what I want in the style. Roast, lactose, molasses, caramel. Less licorice than in the nose, but still some. Not much coffee either. 3.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. A little creamy, but I want more. Roasty aftertaste. 3.0 D: Again, itís okay, just not attuned to my preferences. ★ 709 characters DavoleBomb, Aug 10, 2013

"I miss the old Widmer winter seasonal, snow plow (kinda sorta a 5% version of this beer). The alcohol makes the body a little more robust but not quite as epically smooth as the old Standby. Milk chocolate and roast abound, though, and for $5, a good deal too."

FROTHINGSLOSH (5669) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2014
From the April 2014 3R6P gathering. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a medium sized foamy brown head that left decent lacing. The aroma was lactose, a hint of vanilla and toasty malts. The flavor was bitter vanilla, lactose, roasty malts and floral hops. Medium length bitter finish of vanilla and lactose. Medium body. Meh.

Not much for aroma here other than typical stout notes. Flavor has a bit of bitterness instead of sweetness. It does have some smoothness to the mouthfeel.

DocLock (8707) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Bomber from Wegmanís. Pours jet black, thick, with a 2-finger frothy dark brown head. Nose is a nice medley of roasted dark malts, cacao, mild dark fruit. Tastes roasty, with big dark malt flavor up front, some cacao, earthy woody notes at mid-palate, and mild hops and figgy fruit late. The mouthfeel on this is dense and complex, with a very smooth finish. This one would pair well with any red meat or chocolate dessert.

Bottle. Overall very nice stout, lots of coffee and chocolate flavors, roasted aroma, full body. A little sweet, would definitely do again.

Pours a thick black on tap with nice tab head and good lacing. Sons of coffee and roasted malts with a slight lactose sweetness. Taste is bitter coffee with a hint of toasted toffee and a silky finish. Nicely done.
