I really enjoyed this beer at Todd English PUB in Las Vegas. Paired well with pretzels and brisket.

Bomber (bought in 2013) - pours like motor oil - black, viscous, thick and silky. Thick brown frothy head that thins out but still coats my glass. Good layered aroma of roasting coffee beans, melting chocolate, burnt toast, warm alcohol and dark ripe fruit. A mouthful reveals bitter roasted grain, dark chocolate, molasses, espresso, warm booze and peaty earth. Well made JBPortland (1553) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2015
750ml bottle pours oily dark black with a finger of foamy tan head. Nose is roasty bitter cocoa, tar, ash, charred nutty dark chocolate and molasses. Palate is thick, big roasty molasses and dark fruit, ashy roast, some vanilla. Finishes with pretty well balanced bitterness, lingering vanilla and baker’s chocolate. Solid.

Bottle. Black pour with brown head. Dark malts, chocolate, roasted, light licorice and spice aromas. Dark bitter malts, chocolate, roasted, licorice, and spice Flavors. Ernest (7749) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is black (utterly opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (roasted grain, chocolate), with light notes of vanilla, tobacco. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
Wow, two completely opaque stouts in a row, what are the odds? This one’s a bit better than the River North, certainly in the mouth, where the flavor balance is quite drinkable. Not particularly imperial or exciting, but decent enough. TizzleJizzle (792) - Garland, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2015
