This hit the right spot for me. Beautifully soft body and thick roasty-coloured head. Malty aroma and well balanced taste. Less bitter than others of its style, but that’s fine, it’s all about taste. The balance of roast, hops and cream was heavenly.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rating #968 - February 11, 2014 - Belated #mondaynightbeers with @brnewstead. Bomber from Co-op. Aroma is super orangey, grapefruit, and lemon notes, as well as a bit of malty sweetness. Palate actually holds a decent earthy roasty character, but ends up a bit of a fruit bomb for an IBA/CDA. Medium body for 7.6%, medium alcohol warmth. Balance is there between the sticky sweet citrus and the dry-hop bitterness. Certainly crushable, no doubt, especially for CDA freaks. Great IBA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dated bomber, what a concept. Clear deep dark copper brown, tan creamy foam head mostly fades. Caramel roast aroma, citrus floral pine. Bitter dark roast taste, a bit watery, pine and citrus hop. Softer carbonation, medium thin body, moderately hopped. Dry bitter singed malt finish. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Pours black with generous frothy head. Aroma of pine, berries, burnt wood. Taste is the same. Mildly hoppy, not horrible.

Draught sample. Deep brown with a dense tan cap, solid lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate. Smells way more like a stout. Taste is more boastful of pine, roasted nuts, and a shwack of milk chocolate again. A late-coming, but lingering dry mouthfeel. Reminds why I've stayed clear of cannery and it's "meh".

Not up to the great black IPAs, but a nicely drinking hoppy beer. very earthy and above average mouthful, a bit of smoke and lots of roast.
Bottle from Duffman.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A little simple, but ok. Pours blackish brown with good head and lacing. Pretty much bitter hops with a little roast malt. Finishes bitter, straight up no bullshit. Creamy texture. Bottle from vitis.

650 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with medium head. Aromas of pine and resin. Flavors are similar with roasted malts. Light for a black IPA but refreshing and quaffable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very dark brown letting some light through and a beige creamy head 1/4 inch think that covers the beer and seems to last which also displays great legs. Aroma is roasted malts, slight sweetness, light black licorice, and faint citrus. Flavour is a decent balance of a moderate hop bitterness and roasted maltiness, a bit watery and a dry finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear black with a red tinge and a brown head that dissipates into a ring. Aroma of roasted malts, citrus and grassy hops, toffee and chocolate.
Taste is roasted malts, light citrus hops, chocolate malts and a decent bitterness on the finish almost too much.
