Bomber - Smooth pour into a goblet, dark mohogany and maroon colors around the edges, with a near-black center. Disappointing head that remained as a thin film on the edges for most of sipping. Aroma of smokey malts, light roastiness, gingerbread and chocolates. Its says oatmeal stout, I got the rolled oats in the flavor, but to me it was pretty subtle. Pretty sweet and dry finish with low alcohol. Not bad at all, worth a try, but I prefer the Imperials

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2007
bottle- thick black in appearence, reddish tan head. slightly smoked peat, coffee, subtle oatmeal flavor. A good brew to enjoy in the fall, but not appropriate for the hot June night I sampled it.

I am usually a huge fan of Oatmeal Stouts/Sweet Stouts, but this one was not my favorite. Aroma was sweet and roasty. Pours black with a brown head. I did not think it was anywhere near as complex as the previous dude, but whatever. It was very roasty, had a nice sweet malty character, as well as notes of vanilla and a nice mild black coffee bitterness. It finishes dry and sweet. Had a nice hefty mouthfeel, but although nice and pleasant, nothing stood out as spectacular.

there was a bit of hype surrounding this stout here in Tucson, but Im afraid that this brew didnt quite live up... it is pleasant enough tho, with its robust, bitter chocolate flavo

lb4lb (2587) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2007
Pours basically black with a big big lasting light brown head. Roasty bitter smell, but it was quite light for a stout. Taste is rich, smooth, creamy, and roasty, with a traditional oatmeal stout like flavor. Very indicitave of the style, and even though it wasnt bad at all, I like the other 3 oatmeals Ive had a bit to quite a bit better. Not too strongly flavored, and it is lacking a bit of needed sweetness, I think. A decent beer, but nowhere near as good as Samuel Smiths Oatmeal.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2007
Bomber. Dark, dark, dark with a nice mocha head that has some good lacing. Aromas of toasted oats, fruits, smoke and chalk. Taste is smokey oats mixed with some roasted malts and cigar tobacco. Light flavors of dark fruits on the finish. Easy to drink.

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 15, 2007
thick tan head nice lacing. Body is velvety and creamy with hints of oats, fudge, and espresso. very bland on the finish, i guess that would make it sessionable

faroeviking (10295) - FAROE ISLANDS - NOV 26, 2007
Bottle. Tasting @ thewolf. Pours pitch black with a big creamy light brown well lasting head. Aroma of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, coffee and oat. Very good mouthfeel. The flavour has plenty of roasted malt, and chocolate, some coffee, oat and some bitterness. Dry roasty chocolate finish with a slight bitterness.
