UPDATED: AUG 16, 2016 Named after a kayaking spot, or something. Possibly in the ocean, or on the Willamette River. Doesnít matter, the beer is the star here. A thick, rich, delicious Stout. It tastes exactly as it should. Re-Rating 8/16/2016: 8, 5, 7, 4, 15 / Below average Stout. Sampled at the Albany, OR brewpub.

Very dark brown. Black licorice. Hoppy. Medium body. Dark cola, like Dr. Pepper almost. Good, not great. Enjoyed on deck at Taylorís AirBnb in Eugene.

Pours a finger of tan head on a black body. The aroma is licorice, coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malt. Nice. The taste is milky, a little chocolate and coffee too. The texture is smoother. A solid and nice drinking stout.

Bomber from Rothís. Dark in color. Ruby outlines. Nose is dominated by sweet roasted coffee. Sweet and roasty up front. A bit of a yogurt flavor to it. Decent flavorings, but a little off.

Had on tap at the Country Cruise In Diner in Hillsboro, OR. Aroma is licorice and slightly roasty. Flavor has a bit of licorice and vanilla. Is a bit watery in the mouth feel but pretty smooth.

Bomber. Pours a pitch black color with a huge firm beige head. The aroma is big super sweet malts, licorice, toffee, vanilla. A nice flavor: dark fruit, toffee, ash, licorice, some metal. Pretty smooth. Good.

Bottle:   Thatís not good when you pour a beer and you get more foam than liquid.   Huge light beige head, foamy, otherwise nearly black.   Somewhat decent lacing... but is that because its overcarbonated or infected?   Dark chocolate and roasted malts on the nose.   Oh... each sip results in a foaming in the mouth.   Apple skin, roasted malts, dark chocolate, and coffee on the tongue.   Its a bit hard to get over the extreme foaminess of this beer.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, albeit very very spritzy!   Not really getting any licorice or vanilla with this.   Seems to be a straight forward stout that is either over carbonated or is on its way to a major infection.   Lingering sour apple skin, charred wood, campfire, and super dark chocolate.   Perhaps I sat on this too long (6 months +).

Dark black color with foamy tan lacing. Large roasted coffee aroma. Medium full body that is very smooth without too bitter of a finish. Vanilla ice cream?

bhensonb (14092) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bomber from Made In Oregon. Pours dark brown with a 4 finger foamy/creamy tan head. Itís Alive! Aroma is chocolate/anise. Med body. Flavor is chocolate/anise/coffee. With time there might be some oak astringency, but itís subtle. Overall this is a standard stout with non-standard flavor levels. It finishes chocolate/coffee, and it is quite delicious. Not exactly a bitter finish, but fairly so.

Sample tasting at brewery: Pours dark but not black with a light head. Aroma is of roasted and chocolate malts. Taste is chocolate, bitter with a good malty balance. Slightly thin, bubbly and good flavor. Nice and mellow with a lingering bitter.
