Bomber poured into a tulip
Thanks to BdubleEdubleRUN for the bottle and thanks to Spicelab for bringing this back. Much appreciated on both ends.

A-- Poured a dark cola color and settled black. Just a hint of light at the head of the beer. Half finger of dark mocha colored head. Very short lived. Went quickly to part film and part collar. Better looking head on swirling as more staying power to the head. Couple wisps of lacing on the sides. Stayed at film through drinking.

S-- Dry nose off the bat. Good amount of oatmeal. Bits of coffee and hints of maple syrup. Nice amount of roast. Good balance.

T-- Dark chocolate, roast coffee, oatmeal, little bit of coffee acid and some vanilla extract and maple syrup. Once again well balanced. Nothing too over the top.

M-- Medium feel and low carbonation. Quite rich feel to this. Dry finish but what catches me is the dairy milk, vanilla coffee, and maple syrup just before it goes dry.

O-- Just light enough to be able to want to drink more but big enough to carry all the aspects of the beer. Well balanced and a lot of fun to drink. Not necessarily exciting but a well performed beer. Types of beers I wish were made more often down here and not the watery 4.5% ones.

Thanks to blankboy for bringing this to the table, its definately a treat.

Pours a clear brown/red, thick tan head forms, nice lacing, very thick layer, looks like a stout. Smell is caramelized, roasted grain, vanilla and chocolate, nice and dry, cherries, some grain, nice. Taste is malty, oats, toffee, chocolate and coffee roast, light fruits, nice rich finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low to medium carbonation, nice dry roasty finish. Pretty decent stout, very enjoyable. Thanks Paul!

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass:

A: Dark brown/black with nearly 2 finger tight, mocha brown head. Good retention.

S: Roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, light smoke, very moderate floral hops

T: Fairly robust roasted character with milk chocolate, plenty of medium roast coffee, a touch of smoke, and a nutty/almost nougat like sweetness and flavor. Moderate sweetness with a fairly dry and moderately bitter finish.

M: Medium body, fairly smooth and creamy, perfect level of carbonation, crisp finish.

O: A really solid stout with a very nice mouthfeel and interesting flavor profile.

I hadn't seen this one before so I picked up a bottle to try out. Shared with a few local BAs yesterday.

A: The pour is a nice dark, dark brown with a small tan colored head.

S: The smell is coffee, roasted malt, and just a touch of chocolate.

T: The flavors are a bit more impressive than the nose. Plenty of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and a bit of sweet malt as well.

M: The body is medium, maybe a bit on the thing side, and there is a moderate amount of carbonation.

D: This is a nice, easy drinking stout. A good stout to have that's better than your run of the mill Guiness, but not a big ol' monster of a beer either.
