UPDATED: OCT 11, 2010 Served from a 22 oz bottle from Belmont Party Supply in Ohio. The appearance is a dense black with a large deep red hued brown head. Aromas of black malts, anise, and caramel. The flavors are full of caramel, black licorice, a touch of butterscotch, light chocolate, oatmeal. Mouth is nicely carbonated and lightly creamy. Nice stout. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2010

(bottle - 22 oz) Thick black pour with a fluffy tan head. Heavy roasted chocolate aroma with lots of coffee and cream notes and a very lightly smoked end. Rich roasted and burnt malt flavor with a very bitter hoppy middle. Couldn’t really taste any oatmeal but there was a very pleasant smoky finish. nickd717 (4780) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Bomber as a trade extra, consumed at a movie theater so I didn’t get a great look at the appearance, but I can tell you it looked very close to black and there was a massive tan head that repeatedly overflowed the glass and caused a few spills. Excellent aroma. Big roast and coffee with dark chocolate and some obscured piney hop resins. The flavor is also very big - mammoth if you will. Roast, dark chocolate, caramel, and coffee really sock you in the face. The fullness of flavor is close to that of a good imperial stout. Piney hop bitterness on the finish. On the mouthfeel, this is a thick one. Similar to an imperial stout here as well. Carbonation is fairly high yet on the softer side, so it works fairly well. Overall, I really enjoyed this one. Paired well with "Inception."

A dry roasted stout with a nice amount of hops in the aroma and flavor. Nothing too sweet about this one. Soft palate and a dry finish. I’d like to try this one again. Pastor (799) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Bottle split with a friend in tulip glasses’ produced a two finger tan head that lasted a while the color of the brew was atypical stout black
I got some good roasted coffee aromas as well as a slight chocolate smell. The flavors of roasted malts were dominant and there was a nice bitter follow up as well. The feel in my mouth was perfect for the style with great carbonation.
This brew drank fine I was left wanting for more it was a good session brew and overall a good stout.

Bottle. Pour is black with a large brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, light chocolate, light dark fruit, and brown sugar. Flavor is also fairly fruity malt up front with a nice amount of roastiness. Finish is chocolaty with a touch of hop. Really very good. Full bodied, rich, and flavorful. matthewjk (1111) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 26, 2010
6.00 / 22 oz. I had a lot of hopes for this one. I can say this doesn’t deliver. This stout could be so much more, but it is just okay. Dry, yes; chocolate, yes; good, sort of. Buckey brewed an inoffensive stout that is not worth talking about.
