MrBeerFanatic (1031) - Friona, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2012
bottle 22oz Ordered of internet. Pours a dark molasses with frothy and creamy smooth head. Aromas of roasted malts, caramel, chocolate, vanilla, smoke, and oak. Flavors chocolate, roasted malts, chicory root, oak, light smoke, caramel, and wood. Alcohol only noticeable through the nose. Medium sweet, lightly smokey, with medium to high bitterness. Was expecting more on the thickness but still well rounded and great. Solid over the top imperial stout (this is no ASA to me).

teamsale (225) - Washington, USA - OCT 10, 2016
Bomber produced 10 months ago pours black with a thick brown head that takes a while and leaves thick lacing. Aroma is of coffee, malt, wood. Flavor is coffee, wood, unsweetened chocolate. Plenty of bitterness, a bit under sweetened for the style. Leaves a nice bitter chocolate aftertaste.

CObiased (401) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Have drank a few of these over the years. It pours an extremely dark and thick black ale with a med to thick fluffy tan head that lingers. A complex aroma that delivers intense roastiness, chocolate, coffee, barrel and earth. A whole array of flavors in a mouthful - roasted grain, burnt toast, bitter chocolate, espresso and a long bitter aftertaste. Yum

Svart och nästan stilla. Kallt kaffe och rätt fin Stout. Lite kärv på slutet, trevligt ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerRenter76 (862) - Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2016
A black body with hardly any head, almost no lace left on my glass. Aroma of alcohol, malts, a little fruit, and chocolate. Flavors were similar to the taste, alcohol is hidden fairly well. I was kinda surprised to see this listed as a strong ale it walks and talks like a stout, overall it was a pretty decent brew. Originally rated on 10/24/08.

Quick3Beers (1056) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 12, 2016
Pours a near black brown from a bottle, thick khaki head with a small bit of lacing. Aroma of oak and raisins. Flavor is balsamic vinegar and cherry and bark. It all just seems a little too much. Oh, and its quite bitter.
