Bottle. Pours a dark brown color, with faint red highlights. Creamy, mocha-like hazel-tan colored head. Prominent wet lacing. Coffee aroma, caramel, chocolate, roasted bitter malts, and a nice cocoa powder touch. Flavor is nice: roasted coffee notes first and foremost, chocolate, cocoa, sweet hops in the end. Dry, bitter finish. Quite drinkable even on a warm day. Pleasantly surprised with this one. blipp (9268) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Bottle. Pours almost black with a fizzy tan head. Aroma is roasted and sweet, with brown sugar for sure. Medium body. Flavor is a little boozy, also roasted, sweet chocolate, and brown sugar notes. Not bad. glaze0101 (79) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2008

Dark black body with a medium creamy tan head. Roasty, creamy aroma with some light chocolate. Sweet chocolate and caramel flavor with light roastiness. Medium full body with moderate carbonation and a very smooth creamy finish. MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Black with small tan head. Big roastyness with a hint of creosote in the aroma. Roasty, almost burnt malt and sugar flavors with a moderate amount of roast astringency. Fairly light mouthfeel with a dry slightly sour and astringent almost peaty finish. Trace of alchohol creeps through into the finish also. Very tasty.

22 oz. Bomber - Creamy chocolate aroma. Black color. The only thing visually missing is a lasting head. This stout is creamy with hints of coffee, spice and alcohol. I like the burn effect from the cane sugar. It’s a nice flavor that really makes this beer stand out. Drake (13726) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Bottle from Sam’s Quick Shop. Pours black with a small head that quickly disappears. Spicy coffee aroma. Taste is rum, coffee and chocolate. Medium bodied and stick. Not bad. DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2008
Pours black with dark brown head. Nose is roasty dark malt, chocolate, rummy spirity notes, and nuts. Tastes dry and stays rather dry for my palate, giving dark malt coupled with a dark chocolate and some definite spirity notes as it wamrs. This one is original and enjoyable. georgekappus (296) - Brookfield, Connecticut, USA - APR 21, 2008
Bottle. Pours black with a chocolate head. Aroma was soapy, malty, and a bit of nutmeg. Taste was thick with a full malt and a touch of jerk. A thick and full brew.
