Shared at RBSG 2014. A ton of dark fruit and booze. Taste is sweet with a chocolate and raisin note. A ton of alcohol warning. Kind of harsh.

Bomber (from original 2011 batch, I believe) shared at my house recently by my buddy Shem who has acquired a very nice stash of rare aged ales. Pours pitch black with only the thinnest layer of brown foam. AROMA of charred malts, smooth dark chocolate, hints of rum, and some spice. FLAVOR of semi-sweet chocolate (fudge brownie), nutty roasted malts, some dry cinnamon, smooth rum, and some dark fruit. There’s a nice balanced between the sweet and the roasty in the mount. Must confess that I could not help being a little disappointed on this one...the mere premise of this beer (imperial milk stout with raisins and rum-aged) had my mouth watering. So my hopes were too high...but this is still a very good beer. (242, 876)

pentaz (1240) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, plenty of dark fruits, lots of rum, oak. Taste is heavy sweet and bitter. Body is full, texture is thick oily, carbonation is soft. Finishes boozy and intense. Nicely integrated flavours.

dchmela (2647) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 16, 2014
From the bottle, on a glorious beauty of a winter Sunday in Florida. Pours an inky black with very little head. Huge roasted grain, dark fruit and rum notes in aroma. Thick smooth malt body, lots of roasted grain, chocolate, rum, vanilla barrel notes, dark fruit in the taste. Just a big thick tasty stout, absolutely awesome.

mverity (264) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2014
NYE bottle share a Proof. Poured a pitch black with zero head. No collar, and no lacing, but some decent legs from the thick body. Aroma is of very dark malt with a lot of coffee and a touch of spice (cinnamon, clove or nutmeg?). Taste has a lot of raisin up front, with the deep malt in the middle, a touch of booze (rum) throughout. Extremely low carbonation but that thick body lends to a good mouthfeel.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Oily black pour with brown head. Aroma of dark malts, chocolate, and rum balls. Big, chewy mouthfeel. Exceptionally sweet, making this a very robust dessert style beer... 10 oz would be enough.

Delicate stuff. Aromas of rum raisins, oxidation, burnt fudge, leather, graham cracker crusts, and chocolate almond milk. Growing pleasurable heat. Share this amongst friends, don’t horde.
