mcberko (14360) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark brown / near-black with a small beige head. Aroma is quite chalky, with a bit of coffee and chocolate. Flavour brings out considerably fruitiness, a little coconut, banana, and some coffee. Quite fruity, especially with notes of banana and coconut. Tiny bit of smoke, but a lot less so than I would’ve expected. Weird notes, especially with the banana. Bizarre stuff. An unusual miss from Deschutes.

bhensonb (14077) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is smoke, treacle, chocolate. Full bodied. Flavor is chocolate, with smoke, underlying treacle. Finishes a bit more treacle than chocolate, it’s bitter but not quite dry. Complex seems an appropriate description.
