Bottle via trade. It pours jet black with a thick tan head. The nose is roasted malt, toast, salted caramel, dark fruit, coffe grinds, earth and light burnt notes. The taste is rich roasted malt, coffee, toast, light spice, earth, cocoa, salted caramel and dark fruit with a dry, roasty finish. Full body, moderate carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. Rich, indulgent and full on flavour. Balance is spot on. Delectable. Chudwick (3181) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - AUG 3, 2013

Pitch black body yields foamy espresso head. Sticky beads of lace adorn my teku. Gorgeous! MarcoDL (4844) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2013
Rich, yet dry, coffee-infused roasty malt aroma. Taste opens up with espresso and boozy chocolate malt, turns sweet briefly before finishing dry. In short: Wow! This is excellent.
It isn't often I'm this impressed by a stout, but Ballistic Stout is deserving.
A monster indeed. Thick, full-bodied beer. Strong roasted malt, but also with some hops. Very good. jtclockwork (16443) - , New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2013

22oz bottle shared by GT2: pours an oily opaque with a clingy-lacing dark beige head. Has a rich sweet dark caramel malty nose with some dark fruity Noyes. Starts with good fullness and sweet dark chocolate with some dark fruits before a drier smoky and roasted finish. True to style, enjoyable and complex.
