Smells of caramel, malt and coffee. There is a semi biter taste but mostly a coffee and malt flavor. Interesting brown.

Smells a little bite like chocolate but it is not too sweet nor alcoholic. Easy enough to drink and quite pleasant.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear mahogany with a nose of chocolate biscuit and almond toffee. Smooth flavor of earthy cocoa and nutty sweetness, clean finishing while still semi sweet and balanced. Simple but damn good and nearly porter-like, without the roast.

Taster at brewery - have been tempted to buy the bomber, but... Nose is peanut butter snickers bar. Sip adds many a type of old man candy and trace amount of salt. Long finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Looks good for the style; a mostly transparent dark copperish brown with foamy eggshell head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells malty, toasty, and nutty. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Alright.

A word about the label. Please do not evoke doodie on your beer label. I’m sure this seemed like a good idea late at night after a day of drunken "marketing meetings", but...no...

22. Thanks, N! Pours a crystal clear dark brown with a dense and creamy tan head that sticks around for a while. Nice big malty bready nose, showing bread crust, brown bread, toast, walnut shells, and a bit of cola. Creamy medium body with medium carb. Walnut shells, bread crusts, and cola on the mid palate. Beautifully done.
No idea why this costs $7 or less in Louisville and $15 in Seattle. Would gladly buy at least three times as much if they got the price down where it belongs.
