2nd bottle of Buckeye from OhioDad and both have been winners! the bottle says foreign stout, its listed here as a dry stout and I thought it would have been better in the sweet stout catagory. oh well. great aroma of chocolate and some coffee. nice dark stout color with a generous tan head, settles to lace and eventually disappears as the beer warms. mild mix of flavors, including chocolate, coffee malt and dark fruits without a lot of carbonation. I really enjoyed this one, thanks Scott. a10555 (125) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - MAR 26, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2007 Pours a dark brown/black with a dark brown head that lasts longer than my last date. Has a nice chocolate start, and finishes with a very smooth really light hoppy flavor. Very surprising beer, my expectations were not really high based on the labeling and price. Will buy again. hopscotch (11078) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2006
UPDATED: APR 27, 2007 Bottle... DLD06... Rating #1500... Pitch black ale with a fizzy, brown head. The nutty, roasty aroma is a cyclone of chocolate, hazelnut and smoke. Malty-rich flavor. Lightly sweet and silky smooth. Medium-bodied with medium carbonation. Finishes smoky and dry. Lowe1983 (1592) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2008
Pours a dark brown color with a tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, caramel, and molasses. Flavor is much better then I expected. Strong coffee flavor with molasses, chocolate, caramel, and some sweetness. Much better then expected. PorterPounder (7961) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Independence, Oh. - Discount Drug Mart - 22 oz bomber. Pours a tar black with a deep, dark, mocha colored head that coats the glass with nice lacing. Pleasant aroma with some coffee accents, dried fruit and chicory. Flavor has a nice dry and roasted presence to it with some day old coffee notes, some chicory, a bit of licorice and some prune-like fruitiness in the back end. Mouthfeel is dry and rich - just right for the style. Pleasantly surprised. Served as a good nightcap.

Poured black with a hige, thick and creamy brown head.
Nice, sweet chocolate malt aroma.
Flavor is roasty chocolate and rich roasty malts, dark fruits and coffee with a slight metalic flavor at the finish.
Good beer. 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.Brigadier (3680) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - MAY 21, 2009

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.
22 oz bomber, the label is in black and white and says "Mammoth Stout" with Foreign Stout below the name, not sure if it is the same brew or not. Beautiful pour, dark black with a booming tan head that lasts and leaves behind nice lacing on my glass. Aroma of oatmeal, milk, coffee and semi-sweet chocolate. Nice bitter roasted coffee flavor. Good beer at a fair price. SpringsLicker (3637) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 22, 2012

Coffee, cocoa, dark roast malts in the aroma.
Sweet and roasty flavor. Some licorice in the finish. Bitterness is minimal.
