Bomber from the Beer Store in Frazer. Very dark brown with a rich tan head, lightly carbonated. Mocha malt flavor, mild smoky hops finish. More Yoohoo like when colder, hops edge starts to be more pronounced as the beer warms. Good quality imperial stout but not really a standout within this style.

Stouts like this always teeter between extremes of sweet and dry, and this one is awfully sweet. Dense without being rich, but with a terrific punch of chocolate and sugar -- like adult yoo hoo.
