harrymel (1450) - Spokane, Washington, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottled: unk Itís black with a tan etched surface. Smells of cocoa, cinnamon, graham, some vanilla. Flavor is chocolate with a bit of vanilla, tobacco, leather some breads. Itís really a failure for its ad, but good as a stout. Medium on full bodied and a dry finish. Decent beer, but not what was adverts.

Bomber. Black with a thin tan head. Chocolate, smoked wood, licorice, cinnamon, and the lightest note of peppers. It tastes sort of like the chocolate licorice. Medium body with a foamy feel. Was hoping for more chili flavor.
