2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A: Super sharp and acidic on the aroma. Maybe a little booze.
A; Head retention is amazing and the color of the head is nice, but the color of the beer is rather light for an imperial stout. Itís definitely brown. A dark brown...
T: Drinkable but the flavor is rather off especially for the style. Itís rather acidic. A light boozy note. A sharp acid note really cuts though more than anything. A slight slight slight hint of roastiness.
P: Sits well on the palate but the finish is rough. Really the best part of this beer was it sitting on the palate.
O: The odd thing about this beer is that I could drink it relatively easily. Really the flavor was not that good. Just boozy and acidic. Sits well on the palate but the finish is very rough. Definitely go for victory at sea over this one.
Also the bottle art is really cool.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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 Iíll be going back for some more, thank you very much.

Jet Black motor oil color. Licorice nose. Huge black coffee taste. Complex with spices and salt. Whaffting alcohol after the swallow that burns the lips like whiskey. Wow.
