3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A bit disappointed in this one. On tap at Sailfish Brewery in Fort Pierce. Dark cola looking beer with a thin, off-white head. Aromas of faint roasted grains and not much else. Tastes of watery dark coffee, some bittersweet chocolate, and roasted grains. Chalky, dry finish. Very average.

Draught at Rattle & Hum NYC sept 2012. Black beer with a small tanned head. Oat and coffee aroma. Oat, coffee and malty flavour. Rather thin one...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Near black pour with a frothy, light brown head. Roasty aroma, with a hint of resiny hops. A somewhat weak roast flavor. The oatmeal bitterness is definitely there in the finish. Watery texture with soft carbonation. Lacking in body and pretty bland.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour from a 22oz bottle. Dark brew with generous head. Faint aroma of roasted grain. Surprisingly thin body. Weak taste. Burnt grains at the start transitioning to to sweet malts and then a sour, lactic and vegetal finish. Metallic notes at the very end. Distinctly not pleasant. Maybe this had gone bad? I dunno, not so good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep black color that isnít hazy. Coffee and oat aroma with a cupcake hints. The palate has a slight smokyness to it. It is full bodied yet flat. Not at all sweet. A great oatmeal backing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black with thin white head. Aroma is vaguely sweet, roasted malt. Flavor is a little sweet with a small bit of roasted malt. Itís a little watery which is somewhat distracted. Nice and smooth, but Iíd like a little more malt to give it more body. Overall, itís ok but nothing special.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
22oz bottle. black with a small, stable, creamy tan head. milk chocolate and brown sugar aroma. unfitting, light tart character to this one. roasty notes, but not sweet enough. palate is spot on with a creamy fullness. vinous and oddly tart. might be something wrong.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber from Samís, Durham. Handsome pour, cola brown and roiling, with a nice head and a body that settles into something substantial. Weakish aroma, though, of artifical chocolate, flaky grain, and a bit of coffee. Mouthfeel was also a bit on the airy side, anything but the heft this style requires. And the tastes also revealed some pronounced tartness. Disappointment, because I was so in the mood for exactly this style of beer. Would consider trying again on the odds that I got an off bottle.
