Bomber from the craft beer Mecca of State Line Liquors in Elkton, MD. Deep, dark obsidian with a medium, soft, long lasting dark tan head. Aroma of robust coffee and melted bittersweet chocolate. Bold and richly intertwined flavors of coffee, caramel, chocolate, roasted malt, and crisp, floral hops. Silky mouthfeel and a medium-long, slightly bitter finish. Easily one of the best Ack IPAs out there.

raphael (883) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 15, 2014
roast malt, dark chocolate, fresh lumber, molasses. frothy tan head over impenetrable black. I’m not a big CDA fan but this ones well balanced--avoid the clash of roast & malt, . while the roast is there the molasses, cherry & smoke flavors round it out without muting. Smooth int he mouth with the slightest burnt edge. sharp alcohol finish.
