Bottle at Craft. Black beer thanks to Ken. Cocoa choc bready aroma. Choc sponge cake. It is good though lovley intense chocsponge. Lovely DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Poured into a snifter. Big thanks to SteveFinny for this. Not sure what to expect from this as DL is hit or miss, Darkness is too hoppy for me fresh, Black Albert sucks, and Beer Geek Brunch is pretty good.
4.0 A: Black color. Two fingers of tan head. It’s mostly frothy, but there’s also a creamy component. Retention isn’t bad given the massive ABV. Decent sized ring of lacing is left.
4.0 S: This smells mainly like Darkness and Black Albert, but it ends up being quite nice. Deep roastiness. Tangy caramel and earthiness from the DL and BA, respectively. Formitable citrus and herbal hoppiness from the Darkness. Coffee in varying degrees from all of them. Chocolate in abundance from them all. Booze is well hidden. Overall though, this is closer to Black Albert than any of the others, but perhaps an improved BA.
3.5 T: The taste is even more like BA. Earthy and almost minerally. Quite hoppy as well. Supple roast, bitterness has some strength to it. Chocolate, tangy caramel. Light coffee. Booze is pretty well hidden again. It’s lacking integration of flavors to an extent with the earthiness not meshing well with the hops, which never really works well in a stout. Despite all this, it’s not bad.
3.5 M: Heavy body, perhaps too heavy. It’s almost like drinking booze yogurt. A little too chewy. Reasonably creamy though.
3.5 D: I doubt I’d buy this if it were a shelf beer, so $30 for a bomber is clearly a ripoff. FFF cashes in on beer geeks like no other. If only their beer was a good as the hype.

Black nutty chocolate, coffee, roast and hops, intense fruits. Flavor is molasses, rich biscuity malta, sugar, chocolate, booze, roast, coffee, hot alcohol, moderate acrid burnt harsh malts. Bitter sweet finish. Rich. Odd malt flavor. Not special but strong if you like that. hollardustin (327) - Indiana, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Pours a thick black with small brown head. Aroma is very malty, assorted chocolates, dark fruit, licorice, and roast. The taste is much like the nose, very rich and sweet but not cloying. Silky mouthfeel, oily texture, and full bodied. This is damn good.

Bottle thanks to Beerman6686. Pours a deep black with a tan head. Nose is dark chocolate, roasted malts, some peat, some earth, and maybe some vanilla. Flavor is similar- dark malts, roasted malts, earthy coffee, peat, and a bit of bitterness. Full in body and forcefully earthy.

Bottle 22fl.oz. @ [ Edinburgh Danish Invasion Tasting) by cgarvieuk - Edinburgh ].
Clear dark black colour with a average to large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, beige head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, chocolate, toffee, vanilla, light yeasty. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, chocolate, malty, hoppy. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. 
Bomber. Black with tan head. Aroma is roast, some chocolate, faint coffee. Flavor is a mess--dark fruit, chocolate, and coffee, but no smooth progression of flavors: just an immediate assault of all of this. Finish is long and almost hoppy--not sure where that’s coming from. Not bad, but not as good as any of the individual parts. Certainly not a top notch stout. jlanning215 (363) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2012
how the hell could i give this anything other than the rating I gave it. I thin kthe only thing that threw me for a loop was the heavy belgium qualities. Otherwise...it’s baller. Four amazing beers made this a great brew. Rando7 (779) - Iowa, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle pours black with brown head. Aroma unexpectedly hoppy, not sure where they came from, also the expected roast and caramel. Taste sweet, roasty, cocoa, coffee, molasses, oak. Able to pick out elements of the individual beers. Thick full palate. Alcohol apparent. Bittersweet finish with roast and dark malts.
The combination works well
