Bomber from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours pretty black with a very dark tan head. Aroma is very dark chocolate. Near med body. Flavor is bitter burnt malt/bitter dark chocolate. It’s dry. It’s bitter. Irish stout? Seems like it. hayduke (5187) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 20, 2012
The 22 oz bottle was courtesy of Strykzone. Pours almost black with a medium sized tan head that left light lacing. Nose of roasted malts with cocoa, some charcoal, and fruit. Medium in body but thin in mouthfeel. Flavor is roasted malts with coffee, chocolate, and fruit. Finish has a little bitterness but is somehow thin for a stout. phaleslu (10099) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2012
22 oz. bottle from Randall’s. Pours an opaque near-black color with a small tan head that leaves a lasting film. Aroma of dark cocoa, sugar, earth, ashes, caramel, and cola. Flavor of burnt toast, tobacco, charred wood, coffee, dark chocolate, and minerals. It’s oddly both very roasty and watery at the same time. Light-bodied, with modest carbonation. Weird, and kind of off.

very dark brown with a light brown foamy head. Very little lacing. Aroma is coffee and dark fruit. Sweet malty stout aroma. Oh, pretty light bodied, hit of chocolate right off the bat, then bitter roasted flavor that is pretty flat. If the bitter chocolate could last longer this would be great. Starts off impressing, but fizzles out to average FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Bottle. Pours deep brown with a thick fluffy light tan head. Aroma is roasty with some notes of chocolate coffee and a bit of an ashy dark cocoa note. Flavor starts sweet and roasty with some tobacco coming out along with the coffee and more aggressive roasty earthy note in the finish. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Decent beer lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Solid opaque black, creamy dark tan foam. Aroma is chocolate, bitter roast astringency, sweet, a bit of mineralness. Taste is a bit thin, but it hits all the right Irish Dry stout notes, a bit of chocolate, calcium, light roast finish, lingering malt astringency. jkwalking05 (4731) - Arlington, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Black with a decent tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts and plywood. Taste is of roasted malts. Not bad, but very one-dimensional. travita (4985) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Smell is roast, dirty, slight chocolate, malts, dry, and dusty. The look is brown to black, thin tannish head, and dark. The taste is watery, chocolate, roasty, dusty, and thinner than expected.
