5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Pitch black, moderate to thin brown foamy head, sparce lacing.   Sweet graham cracker roasted malt nose.   Lots of sweet roast graham cracker on the tongue.   Rich and sweet, yet also a bittersweet hoppy chocolate infused malt base. Fairly simple, and certainly not as complex as I would have thought.   This is certainly not worth $13 for a bomber.   Good, but not THAT good.   This is worth half that.   A little miffed.   So far only the Midnight Sun M has been worth its weight on gold.   Good Imperial Stout, just not as special as they make it out to be.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2009
thanks to beerlando for sharing! Rich tobacco and molasses on the nose with bitter chocolate. Pours opaque black with a thin tan head. Rich intense chocolate malts with vanilla and molasses flavors with hints of tobacco, very rich but not as intense as the nose lets on. Excellent beer!

MrBunn (2773) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2009
Bomber with eternal gratitude to scrizzz. Pours a dark brown with a medium head and dark fruit aromas that have a sort of molasses undercurrent. Flavor is a nice enough mix of the above with a little bit of dark chocolate and leather. That said, I wish there were a little more of a malt presence across the palate.

Cavie (4552) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2009
Bottle courtesy of thirdeye11. Very dark pour. Black color but very little head. Smells of roasted malts and oak flavoring. Taste has woody notes with a slight edge of whisky. Roasted finish.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Rating 1900. Thanks to UncleJedi for sharing! Thick inky black pour with a frothy beige head and drippy lace. Aroma is dominated by molasses, oak and coffee. Sweet upfront with hints molasses, oak, vanilla and chocolate. Finish is dry with hints of maple syrup and dark fruit

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Bottle (thanks to Angeloregon for sharing)... Poured black with a thin -- almost little-to-none -- brown head. Aroma of vanilla and roasted, toasted grains and almost as extreme as a little bit of cheese and greasy meat. Smooth palate, lightly carbonated that hugged my tongue and allowed for easy quaffing. Oaky, vanilla and subtly smoked with that "lavish tobacco" (as described on the bottle) base coming through. Insanely boozy with a sweet chocolate and creme brulee-like finish.

alagnak (468) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Bottle from bvc that was a nice "celebrator glass" in an Eastern Colorado pheasant field. Deep dark woodiness in the nose, also bourbon and plums, just a light bitterness. Taste is earthy bittersweet molasses to start, with a roasted meat and black pepper jerky thing (in a good way) as it warms a bit. Great toasty bitterness to finish and scary drinkable for nearly 13% abv. Thanks, Brandon. Really nice one.
