COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Bomb is a dry hopped "oatmeal export stout" that packs a roasty little punch balanced by a soft sweetmenss from the oats. The ale finishes dry with a hint of chocolate and licorice. With generous dry hopping with Summit hops in the firkin, the hop profile is not hiding either.

Ibrew2or3 (6835) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 26, 2009
On cask at Stougies and Stouts at the Dunedin brewery. Pours very very dark brown with infra red edges and thin mocha head. The aroma seems a bit like grape juice, grainy malts, earthiness, notes of tangelo citrus, a bit of molasses and roast to go along with hints of office chair and wall partitions. The taste starts off with astringent dry roasty malts moving to hints of tangelo and orange peel. It gets roastier, maltier and more earthy into midway and dries out into the finish with lingering roasted malts. All of the dry hopping has made this a bit tougher to figure out and describe. It is interesting.

Tap at Stogies & stouts under name Time Bomb stout. pours brownish with tan head. Taste had ample malts with chocolate and spices. There was some sweetness that reminded me a lot of orange peel with fruity hops in the finish. Interesting mouthfeel.

Appearance: Inky black body with a bubbly, beige head. Smell: Roasted malt nose with notes of bittersweet chocolate and, to a greater degree, fragrant pine resin. Taste: Roasty maltiness with a taste of unsweetened chocolate and very, very little sweetness to go around. Earthy, piney hop flavor with a medium bitterness. Finishes dry with a lingering taste of pine sap. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-low carbonation. Drinkability: No thanks. As much as hops can bring to a beer, I feel it can really take away when overused in stouts, and, as such, I didn’t care for this or even other hop-forward stouts such as Happy Ending of Black Flag.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Cask at the Atlanta Cask Tasting. Pours dark brown with a big bubbly tan head that recedes slowly and leaves a hint of lacing. The aroma really caught me off guard as the dominant smell was hops, floral and earthy hops. The underlying stout aroma were barely noticeable with only a hint of the roasted hops. The taste is a little more balance with the dry hopping still dominating up front but the malts come our a good bit with a solid roasted character a some sweetness. The mouthfeel is very smooth, probably due to the oats, with a prickly hoppiness in the finish. I honestly think this one would have been a little better without the dry hopping, or at least with a little bit less. It’s still a good beer, just tough to make out the underlying stout.
