COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Knuckles on the felt. Hit me. Dealer sends another -- a SEVEN with a Jack in the center. Jeff Kuhnie must have rigged the deck. Warrior, Amarillo, and Simcoe hops lend ample bitterness to this roasty Black Double IPA. SEVEN reminds us of a chocolate orange. Oh, it’s a Cascadian dark ale? Whatever you say, Buster.

Bomber at rbsg. Pours black with a half finger dark brown head. Aroma of roasty chocolate and coffee with loads of orange citrus. Taste follows suit. Roasty to start with citrus on the end. Full bodied with a slightly creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, awesome. Another homerun from 18th street.

Bomber into glass. Black pour slight tan head. Aroma is pine and rye hops. Taste has rye ipa, pine and spruce hops, some coffee and a hint of chocolate. Great mix of ipa and stout in this one. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but this is a great black ipa only behing wookey and maybe dubhe.

AWISLguy (1423) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2013
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.

22oz bottle, shared by beerpig317. Batch 121. Dark brown color. Thin off-white head. Dots of lace. Nice chocolate, light herbal spice in the nose. Earthy hops. Bigger body. Smooth, light carbonation. More dry finish. Chocolate, light herbal, earthy hop aroma. Sweeter taste, light zest, little chocolatey sweetness in the finish. Moderate bitter overall, dig that. 8.5% works well with the flavor. Solid stuff.

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.

BBB63 (6155) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Bomber bottle and served in tulip: Basically very deep brown with an initially fluffy off-white head, very good lacing. The aroma has notes of lightly citric and tropical fruity hops, a bit catty, oniony and grassy too. The malt smell of roast, coffee, burnt bread and a touch of powered chocolate. The taste is moderately hoppy and fruity with a fair amount of ashy char tones. Wished that there was not a plastic-y note around the edges however. The mouth feel is lively and aggressive, as noted above ashy and charred finish. A solid Black DIPA but something just does not hit on all cylinders to be almost my favorites of the genre.
