Bomber courtesy of Suttree. Thanks! Pours a dark brown color with a faint attempt at a head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, slight ash and mild roast. The taste is chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, a mild bitter roast finish. Thin-medium bodied. The taste is very reminiscent of bitter chocolate and it’s growing on me as I drink it.

Bomber. Poured deeper brown with a slightly fizzy toasted beige head. The aroma picked up toasty coffee and chocolate with accents of funky sourness and vanilla.. I liked the coffee character, but the brew seemed off. The flavor found tangy coffee and sour husk-like notes on the tip of the tongue, with dry, roasty coffee, toast, and a bit of trailing vanilla behind.. dry, sour, and funky along with burnt coffee on the finish. Medium-bodied and very dry on the palate.. not so sure the funk and sourness was supposed to be there.

Black, decent sized brown head. Smells like coffee and coco-puffs. Taste is coffee forward, but not as coffee forward as I was thinking it would be. Seems a bit on the thin side, too.

Sampled at esbls. This is kind of ashy smokey. Some fruit and bitterness. Those two do not go together here. Not quite there. But not far from it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Pours a very dark brown body with a lasting layer of deep tan-hued foam.
Smell: As one would expect, a coffee-forward, roasty aroma with touches of the added vanilla, chocolate, and dark fruit.
Taste: Roasty malts are prominent, though some charred toast is also present. The dregs of a pot of tangy coffee thrown in, a little vanilla showing. Some chalky dark chocolate. Medium-light sweetness. A little dark fruit. Slight milky tone midway and into the drying, roasty, warming, coffee-centric finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation, a bit foamy in the mouth.
Overall: A fairly competent, enjoyable coffee-dosed stout.

22oz bottle in a coffee mug. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of light coffee, a little roasted malts, some kind of chemical off-note, and a light bitterness. Flavor the same. Average texture. A weird beer.
