2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This cork and caged bottled brew from a rating party poured a medium sized head of foamy tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a typically carbonated semi-hazy orange brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malty orange and cocoa. The off tasting mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The soft flavor contained notes of sweet cocoa hops and malt. Not one that I would likely drink again.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber. Aroma is pretty subtle. Faint cocoa, caramel malt, stone fruit. Lots of carbonation. Raisin. Tastes like snorting cocoa puffs. The chocolate is more of an implication than an indictment. Slight crystal/ cocoa sugar. Kinda sweet. Was expecting a slap of cocoa, got an innuendo. Different, but not a fan, but not terrible. I’m

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and snifter served displaying an unexpected, hazed amber color, with a finger’s width of off white/light tan head foam that gradually reduced to a persistent ring & light film, and wavy ribbons of lacing. The nose was initially dank & earthy, with a slight roasted hint. Then it gradually exuded a noticeable baker’s chocolate scent as it warmed. The taste, on the other hand, was immediately a pronounced semi-sweet chocolate, malt, and caramel sweetness, bittered moderately by a roasted & earthy astringency, in a medium body, with fair carbonation to carry the flavor notes. Liked the time release effect of the aroma. Quite tasty, otherwise!

Bottle. Pours a cloudy copper color with a thin, off-white head. Slight hops with a strong cocoa aroma. Amazing chocolate presence in the flavor. Light, hoppy bite in the finish, but tons of cocoa. Really good brew.
