500 ml bottle from The Hoppy Imports, Thessaloniki Greece. Black body with dark brown head. Aroma is really strange. Spiciness from the rye, something like peppers, coffee, chocolate, some hoppiness. Taste is similar, and quite strange and balanced. Coffee and chocolate of course, with spicy rye notes, roasted, some hops there as well. maybe some beechwood, some oak. Medium to full body with medium carbonation. Great!!!!!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber. Black with a big tan head that seems to have an amber tint, too. A cool looking beer. A robust and roasty aroma also seems to have that regional aroma. Some chocolate and ash in there, too. The flavor is also robust. Dark bitter chocolate leads. Floral notes and ash. Interesting. Then spicy hops. The beer settles into a rich chocolate and rye stout but continues to evolve. Soft fruit pops up followed by grapefruit bitterness. Very good. The feel is creamy smooth. An awesome beer.
