mcberko (16598) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2012
On nitro tap at Apex, pours red tinged dark brown / black with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, nitrous oxide and bitter chocolate. Flavour of bitter chocolate malt, dry toasted bread and a metallic, bitter malt finish. Not terribly stimulating, with the stale metallic notes being quite annoying. Decent.

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
A: The pour is a dark, dark brown color with a fingers worth of khaki colored head. S: Nice licorice and roasted malt notes come through as well as a pleasant coffee aroma. There is a definite char aroma as well, though its not out of control. T: The flavor is extremely heavy on the roast, featuring more of the charred character that was present in the nose. Slightly ashy and acidic, but somewhat mitigated by some dark chocolates. M: Perhaps a bit thin in terms of body, which is strange for an oatmeal stout. Carbonation is a bit on the high side. D: A decent stout, though the presence of the char and ash is something I did not terribly enjoy.

bhensonb (14888) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 6, 2012
Bomber from Brewforia. Release #11. 5.4%. Pours very dark brown with a creamy light tan head. Aromas of burnt malt and mild chocolate. Med body. Flavor is smooth burnt malt, almost milky chocoate, and some earthy hop. Its quit dry, and a bit astringent. Leaves a burning/tingling sensation on the tip of my tongue in the finish. Damn if it doesnt suggest a touch of chili. Too bad these various releases are all crammed together.
