3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours very cola with a fizzy tan head. Aroma is quite chocolate. There’s a little greasy nuttiness floating around. Med + body. Fizzy/foamy carb. Flavor is a little nutty - pecan? - greasy with some dark chocolate and I think bitter roasted/nigh burnt malt. Seems fresher than most browns. Definitely dry, and arguably somewhat astringent. And earthy after a bit. Had to slow down to get that. This drinks really easily.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2013 Bottle... Mostly clear, burnt-caramel ale with a mid-sized, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Great retention. The aroma furnishes a malty intermingling of dark chocolate, singed toffee and roasted nuts. Medium-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is balanced nicely, presenting bittersweet notes of mocha, toasted almonds and caramel. Finishes chocolaty and roasty. Bottle courtesy of richiesd!
