3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bomber bought at their tasting room.
Two fingers of dark tan head on a black body. Low retention on the head though.
The smell has a faint roasted malt and smoke.
The taste is dark bitter chocolate and roasted malt. Pretty good.
Smooth texture, low carbonation and heavy body.
A great stout with a solid profile.
Bomber. Blackish with a big tan head. Aroma of chocolates and mocha. Taste of burnt grains, coffee, walnuts, roasted chestnuts and some dark bitter baking chocolate. The palate is medium, finishes long and dry. Overall: very nice. DenverLogan (1211) - LA, California, USA - JAN 10, 2016
From a 22oz bomber into a mini snifter. Pours black with small head and lace. Aroma of dark roasted malts, oats. Medium carbonation and big mouthfeel. Flavors of dark roasted malts, dark chcolate, grains, some bitter hops. Overall big, bold, flavorful. Chuckh7 (4) - - JUN 25, 2015 does not count
Great thick rich chocolate smell with oatmeal. Well rounded flavors. Very chocolatey flavor and excellent oatmeal finish with good coffee flavor added. The dark color really makes it look like a great stout and minimal foam. Overall well blended beer with mixed flavors and I would most definitely drink again.

Choc vanilla and a bit of grain aroma come from this very thick pouring deep brown brew with almost no head. Classic choc and oat flavor with a full body and low carb. The roasted malts leave a lingering aftertaste. Overall a decent brew. drjay44 (3682) - Salida, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2015
651 ml. bottle. Pours a medium thick, tiny bubbled, well retained beige head, with slight lacing, over a clear, brownish black (SRM 35) body.....nose is light chocolate, hints of coffee, light dried fruits, oats, herbal hop notes, balance to the malts.....taste is lightly sweet, with dried fruit notes, including raisin, fig, light chocolate, hints of coffee, oats, ending with a mild herbal hop bitterness.....mouth feel, medium heavy body, moderate alcohol warmth, creamy carbonation. This is a rather simple Imperial Stout. It is really more of an Double/Imperial Oatmeal Stout than a straight forward Imperial Stout. It is a well made beer, but it lacks many of the elements in both aroma and flavor of a true Imperial.The fruity malt notes are minimal, and there is none of the hop depth often found. Both the appearance and mouth feel are superb. It is a better entry into the Oatmeal Stout world. BJCP 6/3/12/5/6

Bomber. Nice chocolate and roasted malt aroma with a little bit of coffee. Pours pitch black with half a finger of light brown head with good retention and decent lacing. Starts with rich chocolate malt flavor with a little bit of roasted malt. Finishes smooth with more chocolate malt flavor and a little bit of coffee. Nice stout!

This brew pours a dark brown with a medium thick foamy tan head that diminishes gradually. Patchy lacing on the glass. Roasted malt, chocolate and coffee in the nose. Medium to full body with flavors of charred malt, dark chocolate and black coffee. The finish is roasty with a chocolate malt aftertaste. Above average overall. ajnepple (6480) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2014
On nitro tap at World of Beer. Black appearance with a sticky tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, creamy coffee and light roasted malts. Similar flavor, malty and smooth with light earthy bitterness. Medium body with a slick feel. Sledutah (7491) - Utah, USA - MAR 28, 2014
22oz bottle picked up at Supermarket liquors onceblind (9442) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Pours black with a medium sized brown head and good lacing. Aroma is roasted coffee, chocolate, smokey, dark malts and leather. Flavors of roasted malts, caramel, milk chocolate and roast coffee
Very nice and tasty.
Black pour with a lasting creamy foamy light khaki head. The nose has a bit of coffee and lots of roasted black malt, with a wee hint of burnt popcorn. Flavor is roasted and grainy like the tone of burnt Popcorn, with some earthy caramel. Not shabby, but too dry and roasty for me.
