I'd have to say that this is a 'standard' American stout. While it's the not best one I've had, I would give this one to someone who's asking about an AStout.

Looks great. Dark with light tan head. Good lacing.
Aroma is sharp and rich, while a bit "quick", as in the aromas don't linger around.

Solid flavors of leather, dark chocolate, baked caramel. Some coffee and burnt toast. A sharp mid section, ends realtively smooth and slick.

Solid stout

bomber from release #3, 5.5% abv, was told at the brewery store that this recipe is roughly the same as the first two

a: deep brown in color, appearing black for the most part, sporting an average khaki head

s: great roasted malt profile, rich with chocolate and some lightly sweet toffee aromas, but restrained and balanced, glimpses of smoke, an earthy hop aroma

m: carbonation light-moderate, with the body hovering around medium, just a little oat-y creaminess

t: roasty chocolate malts form the bulk of the flavor, some malty sweetness underneath but quickly cleaning up, earthy hop flavor in a roasted finish, just the right degree of roast - somewhere between light and char, very tasty

d: drinks great, a really nice stout
