dark. dark stout color with a pale brown head.
aromas of smoke, prunes, roast and mild chocolate.
the flavor is the same but it has some added notes of coconut, ash, scalded cream and barley.
smooth rich and soft yet crisp and amazingly sessionable.6/4/7/4/15+ evanlarkin (307) - Northfield, Minnesota, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Pour is black as night. Thanks to the Mill Town Mashers for this by the way!
Smell is coffee, cocoa, burnt toast, and loads of malt. Taste is bready and toasty, with a surprisingly strong oat presence. A lingering bitterness akin to baking chocolate rounds out the finish. Very good. arkurzynski (2427) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottles thanks to portableparty. Deep black with soft mocha head. Great roast aroma with hints of bakers chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit. Ultra smooth roasted malt and coffee that ends just slightly acidic and with mild dark fruit. Velvety and delicious. Lingering bitter chocolate roast. reggiedunlop (3724) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Pours black with a thick mocha head. Aroma is burnt with bitter dar chocolate and molasses. Flavor is mostly burnt with a hint of dark chocolate...touch of anise. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a lightly burnt finish. IrishBoy (4199) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Bomber from DalzAle. Nose is coffee, roast, chocolate, and a tinge of burnt. Black with a medium cinnamon tan head. Flavor is chocolate, a hint of bitterness, and roasted coffee beans. Very solid stout!

It seemed like more of a brown ale, a very good brown ale. Fresh and well hopped for the style. Well roasted but not burnt, and a very good palate. Sampled on draft, at the brewery. crajun (1242) - , Texas, USA - MAY 18, 2012
bomber from emeinz via trade; thx Eric!! Loooved the aroma on this one - I didn’t get the chocolate that others noted and can’t quite place the aroma - some wood aroma. silky smooth (oats); thin with a bitter ending. didn’t quite live up to it’s aroma... but good stuff Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2012
22oz bottle from Atom via Free Beer Week, thanks Adam! Pours a black body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is smooth dark chocolates and roasts with some molasses, a bit of a milky chocolate sweetness, and a light anise. Flavor is roasty and smooth up front with a nice dark chocolate and slight milk chocolate sweetness. A bit of a molasses sweetness and a touch of dark fruits before the roasts become somewhat ashy and this finishes pretty dry with a light bitterness, but balanced enough with some chocolates offering a medium-light sweetness. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a solid stout. Big roasts that get pretty ashy and dry, but a nice chocolate and slight molasses sweetness to keep things balanced. Enjoyable. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Has some roasty and fruit scents, taste is similar with an over powering bitterness that was a little too much.
