3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared bomber poured to snifters, showing a black/brown hue, a light tan layer of head froth, with a combination of foamy & leggy spots on the glass. The nose was roasted, with a hint of mint chocolate chip? Medium to full in body, the taste added some complementary alcohol presence, and a roasted, almost charred, and earthy bitterness that continued itís astringency into the finish. Tasty balance of dark roast and hop.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Rayís in Tosa. Pours browner than root beer colored with a beige head leaving some streaks of lace. Aroma has choco/caramel, but light. Not much else. Taste is of chocolate, caramel, some lightly burnt malts, some pine. Medium bodied. Finishes lightly bitter with some sweet. Disappointing from this brewery who has had good stuff. 13.4

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
The nose is subtle with malt sweetness being the most prominent aroma. Pours a thick brownish-black with a non-lasting tan head and minimal lacing. The tastes is roasted malts, chocolate, hints of lactos and pine. Pine and wood are noted in the finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, good and quite drinkable, but I liked 5 Stone Firefly better - more robust flavors.
