4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Too bad this isn’t available in the US anymore...or the Winter Warmer, 2 of my favorite from Youngs. Almost opaque, poured into a Sammy Smiths pint glass, with an unusually silky texture and complex, medium-dry silky palate. Bittersweet smoke finish, this and Sammy Smiths Oatmeal stout are exceptional Stouts. Is anyone out there able to trade either one of these Beers?

Not much of an aroma when I first poured it, but after letting it open up for a few minutes I detected a wonderful mix of toasty and roasty goodness with a slight hint of caramel. Dark brown with a tan head. Medium body with a very slight sweetness and creaminess. Toasty flavor with hints of roasted oats and caramel.

Bomber into an English pint glass. The pour is dark black with some light through the edges. The aroma is some sweet with a dash of sour and a good drop of salty soy. The flavor has many layers, starting with sweet and a bit of sour followed by chocolate, salty soy, and smooth cream. The mouthfeel is carbonated but smooth and slick, going down easy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear dark brown with a handsome ecru head. Aroma is toasty and roasty, lots of breads and grains and coffee. Flavor is dark chocolate and black coffee with a medium roasted bitterness and a light acidity. Mouthfeel is light but moussey in texture, making it easy to drink.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle: A decent brew, but I wasn’t all that impressed. Pretty brew and nice roasted malts, prunes, licorice, some nuttiness and soy sauce. Nice creamy mouthfeel. A decent brew, but their double chocolate stout is much better.

Nitro-keg pour is solid black with a thick creamy beige head. Aroma is hard to get through the thick creaminess but upon settling there is oat and chocolate malt. Taste is nut, oat, milk chocolate, and vanilla. Texture is thicker than a lot of nitrogen beers and taste is rich and full. Nutty malty finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pitch black with a tall, dark brown head. Fine and foamy. Slightly burnt, milky aroma. Very rich flavor, not overly burnt, but good roasted malt. Creamy, slightly milky but not sweet. A dry finish, though not at all overpowering. A good stout, but not really that interesting, especially compared to the double chocolate. It is smooth and easy to drink, though, with a decent balance.
