Poured from tap into tullip glass. Pours a nice jet black color with a tan light head. Aroma is nice and roasted but kind of light overall with some coffee notes. Flavor is initially bitter with roasted coffee notes and a hint of chocolate. There doesn’t seem to be much on the backend. Maybe mostly alcohol. Mouthfeel is full and carbonation is average. Overall a delicious stout.

Bottle courtesy if Homer321, thanks again! Black pour with a light tan head. Aromas of roasty malts and notes of coffee. Flavor is sweet roasty malts upfront with notes of coffee. Not anywhere near as complex and robust as I was hoping for. Not bad though.

(Bottle). I found mainly flavorings from roasted malt and alcohol in the fragrance and in the taste when this beer was tested. But the tasting was done after several other beers so my taste buds were probably slightly weary.

Bomber that is 6 months past due. $4.99 at FLBC. Pours black, small tan head. Aroma is licorice, roasted malt, some chocolate and coffee. Moderately thick, moderately low carbonation, creamy, roasted finish and bittering, dry finish. Flavor is much like the flavor. Perhaps more chocolate in the flavor. Alcohol is apparent. This rating could mean jack-squat based on the past-due date, but for $4.99, 10%, and 90+ rating, I think I’ll be going back for some more, thank you very much.
