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.
