3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Dicarlo/Arminetti, batch 121. Pours an opaque black with a foamy tan head leaving nice drops of lace. Aroma has chocolate, grapes, citrus and coal with some pine. Taste is of black patent malts, chocolate, sweet caramel and some bitter citrus (oranges and grapefruit). Medium bodied. Finishes more bitter than sweet. Nice combination with the choco-caramel malts and the citrus. Ultimately could have been smoother and flowed better.
