Bold and complex from a tremendous amount of roasted malts, yet smooth and rich from the addition of oats. Dissent has its own opinion of what a dark beer should be.

22 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with Atom. Pours black with a moderate brown head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Very pleasant aroma of roasted malt with ample chocolate and coffee present in the nose as well. Very inviting. The flavor is similar again with roasted malt and lots of chocolate and coffee. Moderate roast bitterness at the finish. Rich and smooth on the palate. Full bodied. Very nice beer!

bottle... get for a stout not if you’re thinking black ipa... the aroma has tons of chocolate, sweet, a bit of vanilla, good... the taste is more of the chocolate but a bit more balanced, alcohol is a bit low for what it is, if this was 10%, would be a rock star

Extra in a recent trade, forget who though....thanks though. Pours out, well almost black with a small tan head. Aroma is of roast, some chocolate, coffee and light hoppy notes. Taste is cocoa, dark chocolately malts, light licorice and some mild bitterness in there. Smooth and nice drinking stout.

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.

AWISLguy (3109) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bomber from Four Firkins. Pours black with an tan head. Aroma has molasses, chocolate and caramel. Taste is of sweet caramel, bittersweet bakers chocolate, some roast and a nice blend of oatmeal. Medium bodied and smooth, and nicely bitter-sweet. This is a solid effort, where I’ll look for more from that brewery. 14.1
