Porch beer in early Feb? 60 degrees out? Yep! Dark black. Think tan head. Thick creamy milky stout. A touch of vanilla would have kicked this into a 4, but as is, it’s really nice. I want more. zgaier (1951) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2017
Bomber. Pours a dark brown with a tan head and nice chocolate aroma. Taste is full of sweet milk chocolate notes, with roasted malt, and coffee notes into the creamy, chocolate finish. satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2011 growler card #2 punch #3. aroma is black cherry, raspberry and luscious fudge brownies. appearance is 99% opaque with filthy brown tinged head in large amounts but moderate to low carb. flavor echoes aroma with further pressure from the fruity notes, raspberry espically. those esters lighten the chocolate and keep it tempered and interesting, checking pure sweetness. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Black with fair, creamy, tan head (but tasting from a growler) / Big, earthy nose of cigar box and coffee / Medium body, a touch watery, chewy, with good balance and finish / Flavors of tobacco and dark roast coffee, with unsweetened chocolate notes / Potentially very good, just needs to correct the body problems. mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Growler thanks to msante79. I’ve been extremely impressed with everything I’ve had from Half Acre so far so I’m excited to try this one. Pour is dark brown with a medium sized tan head. Milk chocolate, coffee, vanilla in the aroma. Sweet taste with milk chocolate, coffee, nuttiness, and some cream. Not overly sweet at all. Slightly bitter in finish. Fairly light mouthfeel.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2012 3/26/12-re-rate from Stout Fest. Had to try this one again and see what the deal was. Second time around, much improved. Much more malt driven with drying roast and less cloying milk sugar. The chocolate is a bit more subdued and less sweet overall. Much, much better this time around. 3.7.
5/26/11 -Draft at Fountainhead. Pours black with a tan head, pretty good looking beer. Nose expresses chocolate, hershey’s syrup. This is going to be sweet. No hop aromatics. Some light roast notes are present. On taste, sweet. Cloyingly so. The lactose overtakes the cocoa notes. It rides the tongue and wraps it up. I can’t get past the sweetness. Reminds me of Dark Horizon 3. Not my bag at all...2.4 ccex (1313) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Bomber pours an opaque black with medium tan head that never completely disappears, but which leaves faint lacing. Aroma is full of chocolate, coffee, cream, and bready malts. Body is medium to full, befitting a stout, with minimal carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Taste is sweet, but not as sweet as I had feared it might be, with a touch of hoppy bitterness in the middle. There’s nothing over the top here, just a very good chocolate stout and another reason I’ll check out what Half Acre might come up with next. beechner224 (1024) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2014
