Bomber from Total Wine in Orlando, $3.99. Poured jet black with a decent brown head. Left a lot of lace. Aroma of deep roasted malts and some chocolate. A touch of raisin and mild smoke as well. Flavors consist of roasted malts, and smoke. A subtle fruity sourness blended into the espresso bitter finish.Super smooth and medium mouthfeel, good carbonation. For the cost of this bomber I was expecting much less. What a pleasant surprise. I bought three bombers of other beers from this same brewery. I am now looking forward to them immensely.
Tasty coffee-ish stout on tap at World Beer "Museum" in Osaka (Umeda). Crisp, clean, slight walnut tree type smell. Great head that lasts a while. Super dark; light does not penetrate even when help up to lights. Traditional roasted nut and coffee flavors. Saliva glands respond well. Will definitely drink many more of these.

Wonderful aroma of rich malts. Pours dark brown with lots of tan head. Smokey taste upfront with a thick mouthfeel. Finishes with the standard malts of a stout. Some bitter tobacco taste. Well done. Bottle. tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 19, 2017

Taster at brewpub. Pours deep deep tan, brown head. Smells of cark chocolate and smoke and coffee. Good initial hit of burnt malt and coffee, but it’s a little thin for the abv. Very drinkable for a strong beer. Decent. Panzuriel (2199) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2016

On tap, Pike Pub. Jet black colour, off white foam. Very good this, not overly harsh or boozy despite abv, smooth roasty coffee and cocoa flavours and a long bitter finish. Impressive stuff. MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - SEP 17, 2016
