COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lube? Hey, get your mind out of the gutter! Social lubrication, people coming together to unwind, is what we are talking about. This American Black Ale has a dark body, medium bitterness, balanced with West Coast hops and sweet orange peel.

Dark brown to black, fluffy tan head. Aroma: chocolate, light licorice, some leather in this year-old bottle, hop aroma is light (but again fairly old bottle). Flavor: chocolate, some pine and orange peel, an earthy character. Finishes with a dry baker's chocolate note. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber bottled 2/12 into a Duvel tulip. Pours a dark ruby brown with a huge tan head and lots of bubbles. Decent lacing. Aroma is pine, citrus, malts, leather, and grass. Taste is malty up front. Citrus flavors come in with a bit of pine and cream. It finishes with a slightly sweet and smokey flavor. Mouthfeel is thin to medium and goes down pretty easy. Not bad.

Bottle @ Jensen. Dark brown, big tan head that settles nicely, okay lacing. Aroma, malty, roasted notes, hoppy, chocolate, caramel, .Taste, malty, hoppy, roasted notes, chocolate, coffee. Way too much carbonation, needs to be in the glass for a while. Roasted aftertaste.

Dommod2011 (704) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2013
Shared with lots of people at Cott. Thin, no hops to speak of, but enough lubrication to get the evening started. Bish and I totally messed up the pouring, doesn’t bode well for BBB.

Brenhophead (695) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2012
650mL bottle, pours black with a 2 finger tan head and a coffee aroma with a hint of hop resin on the nose. The roasted malts seem to dominate the flavour so ill let it warm up a little an come back. Picking up the ash and esspresso as well as a hop backround but as i said the dark malts dominate.

osu97gp (678) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Pours a black color with a smallish sized tan head. Aroma of roasted malts with some light citrus and grapefruit. Flavor of roasted malts, coffee, light citrus hops towards the finish. A bit light on hops for a Black IPA but still quite good.

TheGent (656) - , Massachusetts, USA - JUL 6, 2011
So i was just looking for a simple nice beer to enjoy tonight and this well out did my expectations. Bomber poured into a pint glass. deep black color with some brown edges in the light. Light tan one finger head. The aroma is a pine and brown sugar. I think of it as molasses spice cake with burnt edges. A lovely sweet smell. The taste is a little roasted malt with bitterness and some oily orange zest just kicking in at the end. Taste fades fast. Refreshing for such an aromatic and flavorful beer. very slight linger of bitter in the finish. Best clown shoes beer I have had.
