3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber - Has an awesome roasty smoke aroma and a dark coffee taste and a hint of (dark) chocolate. The mouthfeel was a little thin. Gets better as it gets warmer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Black with a light tan 1 finger head. Aroma is espresso and lactose. Taste follows suit but adds a hint of chocolate. Balance seems a little off though. Espresso is a little too bitter. Palate is creamy and full. Close but a little off.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cola black with a bit of tan head. Aroma is not as coffee as I expected, and neither is taste. This isn’t the beer I expected from this brewer, but aside from expectations, it’s a fine enough beer. $8/22ox

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 5/31/13
Aroma: The aroma is sweet and malty, with chocolate, brown sugar, milk, and a little roast
Appearance: It pours a cola black color with a small beige head and some light, spotty lace
Flavor: Tastes similar to the nose, though its a little thin, it’s still mostly sweet malts with light roast
Palate: The feel, like the flavor, is a bit thin, it has a soft, creamy feel to it, and a fairly short finish
Overall, this is a solid one, but it has a few flaws. The flavor just doesn’t carry through with quite enough oomph. Otherwise, it is a fine beer.

Sample from 65cl bottle courtesy of Travlr@post TdG tasting 04/2013.
Creamy coffee in democratic doses, subtle residual hop bitterness. Great roast, lactic element is indeed rather milk powder. smooth, entry-level recipe of a milk stout, one of my favourite styles.
