Bomber from BevMo. Black in color upon pouring. Strong coffee aroma. Lots of roastiness. Like good fresh brewed coffee. Bitter roasted coffee flavors. Mostly bitter roast, with a slight touch of sweetness. Good stout. HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - MAR 21, 2008
Bottle. A very nicely done Irish stout. Great frothy head, nice aroams of coffee and chocolate. Flavors of roasted malts, coffee and chcocolate. Just the right balance between bitterness and sweetness, ncie finish.
tastes definitely more substantial than what the alcohol level indicates. DarkMagus (560) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Dark chocolate-black color with a thin tan head. Slightly sweet, roasted malt aroma with chocolate and a tiny hint of coffee...overall a pretty faint aroma. But the flavors were amazingly rich and intense... bittersweet dark roasted malts, slight, but sharp bitterness from the hops, and hints of cocoa, coffee, and molasses. Rich, full, soft mouthfeel with a very nice and crisp dryness to the finish. Perfect. I love this style of beer, and this is a great example... I need to stock up.

Thick, dark, robust, chocolatey, roasty, and DRY. I think this is one of the best full bodied stouts on the market that I could drink almost daily. Lowness of the alcohol percent makes sense. I am very happy with this offering from Moylan’s. doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 4, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2008 22oz bottle from BevMo. Pours medium thick looking, very dark brown/black with a creamy brown head. Good retention. Smells dark and roasty, like unsweetened coffee. Tastes almost smokey. Malty, roasty and nutty. Very flavorful but not too sweet or thick. Light body for a stout. active carbonation.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2008 Bottle purchased from Bevmo. Pours very dark with a nice creamy tan head which quickly dissipates. The aroma of roasted malt is quite evident. Prominent flavors of bittersweet chocolate and roasted nuts. Small amount of carbonation. Light texture, but smooth with a dry finish. I enjoyed this. Good Irish stout. Would definitely go for more. clingman71 (300) - Centerville, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Draft-Nitrogen @ brewery. Very dark, almost brown head, aroma of coffee, very creamy and smooth, pretty flavorful for an Irish Stout, a style that I normally find lacking arjoseph (642) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2007
GABF 2007. Wonderful dry coffee roast smell. Thin bodied, not much intensity to the flavor. The roastiness that’s there is watered down, waits until the finish to emerge. Other than that, there’s not much here to describe other than a little sourness throughout. Not as malty or as dry as I would like. Enniskillen (2061) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, light espresso. It’s nice to see that this isn’t on nitro. Taste is filling with coffee, raspberries, and chocolate. motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 19, 2004
quite dark with a pretty beige head. cocoa powder and brown sugar aroma, tasted of afterdinner mints with a little cream and nougat. nice stuff
