3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle from Hayduke. He, I, and his brother Rick enjoyed it together via facebook chat. This pours almost black and has a big tan head that has a bit of red in it. The nose is fudge with milk chocolate and nuts. The flavor is also chocolate with some nuts and a bit of roasted effect. It reminds me of a Guinness but with more chocolate. It has that feel to it. There is a bit of hop notes here that are grassy and citrus and add some faint bitterness. Very late in the bottle some grass could be tasted. This is a nice beer. It leaves Guinness in the dust.

Bomber from Bottle Barn. Pours really dark brown with a creamy/bubbly tan head. Aroma of dark malt and something that makes me think cow patty. Sorry. Med body, maybe. Flavor is something toffee, coffee, dark malt, a bit hoppy. Develops chocolate. Finishes more chocolate than anything else. Not spectacular,but nice. Killing with faint praise. Hey, itís better than most stouts!
