Bomber from GGroppis. Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. Drops of lacing lasting for a long time. Aroma has chocolate, roasted malts and nuts. Taste is of sweet chocolate and bitter roasted malts. Dry and fairly smooth. Faint caramel. Finishes bittersweet and dry; somewhat short. Another solid clown shoes effort. More chocolatey and sweet, with a bit more body, would have been killer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark chestnut brown color that appears pitch black and opaque in the glass with a two finger, frothy beige head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting cap/ring. Very good retention with large chinks of soapy lacing left behind. Looks great!
Deeply roasted dark malt aroma with earthy, piney hops and subtle dessert like sweetness. Very robust with hints of charred toast, charcoal, dark chocolate and oatmeal. There’s some resinous hop oils in there with pine needle and dank buds. Decent amount of roast but I wouldn’t have been able to pick out pecan, or any nut really, in the nose. The roast is countered by lighter malt sweetness with hints of dark cocoa, caramel and toffee. Smells like a light smoked robust porter.
On the fuller end of medium body with some earthy, resinous hop flavor countering the complex malt bill. Robust and slightly smokey with some charcoal and BBQ along with hints of burnt toast, oatmeal, coffee bean and bittersweet dark chocolate. Subtle roasted nut presence that was lacking in the nose but I probably wouldn’t have detected it if I didn’t know this beer was made with pecans. Dry hop bitterness is there but not as prominent as expected with some earthy pine needle flavor. The dark roast is countered by silky chocolate malt sweetness with hints of caramel, bakers chocolate, fudge and toffee. Finishes dry and slightly acrid but it’s not harsh. The ABV is very well masked with little to no heat. Well balanced with decent flavor but this beer isn’t anything out if the ordinary and I’m not sure if the pecans add anything.
