Pours a black black color with a thin to medium brown head. Pretty nice aroma of coffee and dragon’s blood. Some nuts and coffee in the taste! Maybe some DRAGON’S BLOOD as well. Nice burnt aftertaste. Bit dry. Good imperial stout.

Bottled, thanks to caesar for sharing. Black appearance, brown head. Aroma of hops, chocolate, coffee. Bitter flavor, roasted malts, coffee, alcoholic. Powerful brew. Not my favorite, but certainly not bad.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured black. Aromas chocolate and a bit of espresso, hint of hops. Flavor is a match. Hops are present, and hint of citrus, but are obliterated in a good way by the dark malts. Quite drinkable despite this. Enjoyed this beer. Pleasant surprise.

22 oz bottle - pours viscous black, full tan head, lasting with decent lacing. Aromas of toasted malts, slight bitter chocolate, bit of citrus notes. Taste is roasted nuts, little coffee, finishing with bit of hops. Medium bodied, balanced with no burn. Decent, not a monster.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber bottled 1/2012 poured into snifter. Pours black with a slight tan head that quickly dissipates leaving a cap. Dark brown around the edges in the light. The aroma is pretty smokey with roasted malts and a fairly heavy scent of booze. The smoke and alcohol makes it hard for me to pick up much else. The taste offers more with a chocolate malt flavor with caramel and a fair amount of hop bitterness and some dark fruit. The mouth feel is fairly smooth with a medium body and light to moderate carbonation. Overall a decent imperial stout although not as good as some others I’ve had recently. The flavors are there but they could be balanced better and the alcohol heat masks some of the other flavors, not as complimentary as it is with some others.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml bottle. Pours thick and black with a temporary two finger head. Aroma is pine, coffee, malts, but nothing remarkable. Taste is where it really comes alive, with dark fruits, coffee, and a large amount of bitter chocolate which extends to the finish. Alcohol is reasonably well hidden, but the more you drink the more it appears.

Bottle. Pours jet black with thick tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma of hops, roasted malt, and chocolate. Taste has chocolate mixed with nice piney hops. Thick mouthfeel. Would never guess this is over 12%. No alcohol heat at all.
