This has been sitting around for a while so I figured I would give it a chance. At $4.99 I had nothing to lose - Buckeye seems to price their bombers very well compared to many other companies. It deserves a little bump for being solid and affordable thus the high score.
Aroma / Appearance - The murky brownish/black body and thin tan head provide a medium for the black coffee, licorice, smoke, and cocoa that escape from the glass. Solid and creamy I like the way it presents itself.
Flavor / Palate - Smoke, black coffee, and dry toast smeared with Nutella fill the mouth. The strong roasted finish completes a solid well made beer. While there are several that are better none can compete on price with this.
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours a dark brown/black with tan head. Aroma of dark roast and some cardboard. Flavor of dark roast, coffee, malt, dry. Mouth feel is medium-heavy body with light carbonation. Overall, pretty good! blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2009

BOMBER. Thanks to MikeTD, can’t wait to share a brew with this guy. Pours a black body with a cola tan head. Malty with a hint of licorice and some dry oats and a light caramel body. Hints of chocolate with a mild etoh warming. Hint of dry minerals and calcium with a light roast y bitterness. A well balanced stout and quite session able with a nice body and good flavor.

This poured almost black with a big lgiht tan head. Aroma was pretty sweet and chocolatey for a stout. Flavor was silky and smooth chocolate, but a bit too sweet for me, not much roastyness to it at all. SrSilliGose (3331) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAR 30, 2009
I was pretty happy wiht this beer. not sure why i always end up drinking stouts in the summer, but oh well radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2009
Near black in colour with a thin tan head, light lacing. The aroma is fairly sweet, some milk chocolate, toffee, roasted coffee, burnt malts with some dark fruits. The flavour is quite roasty, mildly sweet, good amount of roasted coffee, some dark chocolate with just a bit of alcohol. Roasty mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, roasty with some milk chocolate sweetness.Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2009
Very nice. Good roast and an excellent mouthfeel. Quite enjoyable.

Bottle shared by Dak. Black and opaque with tight tan head. Metallic aroma is fully of lead. The flavors are similarly lead-laden and paltry. Unfortunately, not liking it. Oakes (17668) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2009
Somewhat dull and flat. Very dark brown colour. There’s sort of a burnt toffee note to this, but also some inappropriate phenols. It’s extra roasty and astringent with a hint of soy sauce. It’s big, but has little going for it. No real complexity, and the flavours and aromas do not correspond with any foreign stout I’ve ever had.
