Poured bomber into 34oz mug. Darkest pour I have ever seen, jet black with a thick, dense dark brown head that doesn't go anywhere, leaving lots of lacing. Smells of chocolate, bourbon, sweet malt and coffee. Taste is bitter baking chocolate, some bourbon sweetness in the middle, and ending with a coffee bitter aftertaste that swing in way late, rounding out nicely. Insanely delicious, with one of the fullest mouthfeels I've had. This is definitely a "double oatmeal RIS". This is now one of my favorite stouts. Incredibly well-done!

A: This poured an opaque pitch black with thick dark tan head.
S: It smelled like rich espresso and licorice, with some dark chocolate and molasses and fig.
T: It tasted like rich dark chocolate and espresso, with some molasses and prune. It had a clean mostly sweet aftertaste.
M: It was thick with moderate carbonation. Nice big body.
D: This was an awesome stout with delicious scent and taste that were bold but balanced. The body was solid, and the finish was surprisingly smooth with well hidden alcohol. So it was easy to drink, but nice enough to sip. Could age, but doesn't really need it. Recommended.

Big high five to yeahnatenelson for this!! 2011 bottle I think, perhaps 2010?

Appearance. Pours very viscous and black with a thin espresso foam head that fades quickly to a collar that leaves some decent lace.

Smell. Sweet dark chocolate and coffee with a little molasses and a bit of licorice. Smells delicious!

Taste. Coffee, molasses, dark chocolate, espresso and some smokey dark malts, and just a little nice citrus hops. Fantastic stuff.

Moutfeel. Full bodied and fairly viscous, lower carbonation.

Overall. A really nice big stout that seems perfect with this age on it. I'd like to try a fresh one, but doubt it's going to be better than this with a stronger hops presence.
