3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle shared by beerpig317. Pours dark brown in color with a small off white head. The aroma has some roasted malt, dark chocolate,citrus, herbal and resiny hops. The flavor has a strong roasted malt and dark chocolate base; hops are resiny, citrus and earthy. Seems more like a porter they top hopped, but still decent overall.

Bottle. The pour is black. The aroma is a malt and hoppy blast. The taste is very earthy and has some bitterness in the end.

Bomber pours a dark brown with moderate, lasting beige head and good lacing. Aroma is strong with earthy hops, citrus hops, and roasted malts. Taste is bitter as expected, wtth a bit of sweetness in the middle. Alcohol well hidden. Body is medium with light carbonation. A very solid strong black IPA I hope to catch again.
