Bomber from some joint in SF, shared with the fam. Thick, sludgy black pour with a huge filmy head. Earthy and dark. Very powerful nose of chocolate, coffee, and nutty bread. Mouthfeel is robust, moderately carbonated, slightly chalky in places (which of course is just the ticket with this brand of stout). Hints of a metallic and dry finish, almost like an oyster stout in places. But it’s like chocolate bread, well balanced with bitter coffee. Very fine. beeroverthere (81) - USA - MAR 5, 2012

Body:Roasted barley, lots of coffee, some chocolate, hint of west coast bitterness.

Chocolate caramel and toffee flavors. Aroma is a little roasty. Finish is slightly sweet to add some depth. Nice tan head to add some creaminess to the texture. A solid drink and a very accessible stout. burg326 (5488) - Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2012

Black as a cloudy night. Roast, coffee, malt, burnt sugar on the nose. Attack is sweet, overripe fruit, bitter slow finish. robertjm (892) - Albany, California, USA - JAN 4, 2012
One finger head, the color of light brown sugar. Sticks around after the pouring. Ultra dark brown opaque body. Some bubbles coating side of glass. VERY slight toasty aroma. Good body that could be a little heavier to be a foreign stout IMHO, but not bilge water thin either. Light roasty flavor. Very drinkable.
