Rather thick, but pleasant. Oatmeal really came through after the coffee and mocha notes, which was nice as some oatmeal stouts dont contain enough oatmeal taste. I had never heard of the company,so this beer came with a totally unbiased opinion. It suprised me.... I found it to be incredibly enjoyable! NachlamSie (3595) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 9, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2008 draught. Pours pretty much stark black with some red on the top and not much of a head. Aroma is very mild with some faint mocha notes. Earthy coffee tones in the mouth. . The oats are there and add a nice balance. The mouthfeel is mildly syrupy and cacao flavors are apparent throughout.

Bomber from Bruisin’ Ales. Pours pretty dark brown, near black with a good head to boot. The aroma is very roasted and semi dry with distinct bitter notes and an almost sour feel to it. Lots of chocolate is delivered in the flavor with some oaty smoothness. The finish is remarkably nutty. I liked this beer pretty well.
12 oz bottle, via Bück Dich. Black pour with some mahogany edges and a small light brown head. Chocolate and black patant malts lead off with notes of molassas, oats, and coffee in the aroma. Flavor is equally balanced between the burnt malt and aggressive hoppiness. Finish is chocolate and espresso laced with caramel. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and creamy textured. Very fine light to moderate carbonation. A nice solid Sweet Stout, worth seeking out for sure. iowaherkeye (2804) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - MAY 4, 2006
Dammit! Lost my rating again. 12oz bottle, no date. Pours a dark, dark brown with a mod tan head, quickly dissipating. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, oats, brown sugar, and vanilla. Taste follows the aroma with a lingering soft bitterness. Full bodied. Very good beer. jake65 (4033) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Pours a solid black / dark brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma is mild, swwet with a touch of malts. Taste is much deeper. Great blend of coffee, chocolate, bittersweet, malts, and roastiness are present here. Nicely balanced from start to finish.

Fine medium ecru head. Nearly opaque espresso colour. Fabulous toasted oats scent. Nice thick mouthfeel. Bitter dark taste, quite lovely. Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Pure black body, with a tan head. Good oat aroma, that for the first time is not overpowered by the coffee bitterness. Nice thick body, good oats again (very present), bitterness from roasted hops also adds a nice touch. Sweet, clean ending. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Dark black color with a medium brown head that mostly dissipates. Sweet roasted malt and bitter aroma. Lots of roasted malt, medium coffee, and light bittering. Ratman197 (15604) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2006
Bomber poured a nearly opaque black with a lasting brown head. Aromas of coffee, hint of bakers cocoa and a bit of licorice. Palate was medium bodied and crisp [for a stout]. Flavors of coffee, bakers cocoa and roasted malt with a crisp lingering bittersweet finish. Folkstar (6) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - APR 21, 2006 does not count
Not bad, but a little dissapointing. The taste is nice and tart, but the aftertase lacks a little something I can’t put my tongue one. Don’t pass up this beer without trying it, but, I’d rather drink an Ale and eat a bowl of oatmeal instead.
