bottle. yep black with large fluffy tan head. floral hop blended with roast and chocolate. a medium bodied beer with somewhat low carbonation. the flavor has notes of dark chocolate and heavily roasted malts however the finishes incorporates these bitter spice additions that leave a vegetal lingering note. quite bitter with the spices but they also lend some floral notes, but i could just be the hops. also a faint nuttiness.

3.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown to black with small tan head. Aroma is blunted....sweet roasted malt., touch of floral. Taste is a parade of sorts. Flash of bitter followed by flower bouquet, pronounced honey sweetness, a little alcohol bite to bring up the rear. Super smooth, soft texture. A little too sweet in my opinion, but tasty and original.

A very unique beer, primarily because of the strange medley of secondary flavors that accent this smooth, chocolatey beer.

The appearance of this beer has a clear but very dark reddish brown color with a large tan head, and the aroma combines roasted malts with jasmine. The taste fuses mild umami, slight sourness, and a touch of sweetness, which isnít the best combination, but the palate is nice due to the soft carbonation, oily texture, full body, and a malty finish.

I didnít get a whole lot as far as the aroma goes, but flavor wise I really enjoyed this. Just the right thickness in the body, itís not too sweet (maybe thatís from the flowers?). In any case, itís pretty good.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. Aroma is bready, coffee, licorice, something sweet which I assume is the avocado honey, cinnamon (?). Pours nearly black with red highlights; has a two finger beige head with good retention; leaves a little lace. Taste is mostly sweet with a lightly bitter finish; lingering savoriness. Flavors of licorice, molasses. Velvety texture. Good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours brown black with a tight soapy creamy looking head that settles to a thin film and some lacing. Aroma is sweet floral and malty. Taste is very floral maybe even a bit fruity with sweetness and bitterness there is roasted malt some vanilla chocolate and lavender. Palate is slick somewhat sticky and dry. This is a complex beer and maybe a little out of bounds for me.
