RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2006
bomber. Aroma: Bitter coffee, heavy roaste malt, chocolate, a bit of piney hop, and a touch of vanilla. Appearance: Dark black in color. Head was medium tan, full, and frothy with good retention. Nice lacing. Flavor: Big roasted malt with a strong coffee overtone. Chocolate and light vanilla, a touch of dark fruit. Getting a bit of piney hops again right before the finish. Finish is full of roasted malt bitterness, but also some hop bitterness. Palate: Medium-full bodied. Medium carbonation. Slight alcohol warming in rear of mouth. Strong roasted malt astringency. Overall: Pretty good. Like the heavy roasted flavors, for the most part. A little too much astringency near the finish, though. Worth a taste.
