bhensonb (10688) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 6, 2012
Bomber from Brewforia. Release #11. 5.4%. Pours very dark brown with a creamy light tan head. Aromas of burnt malt and mild chocolate. Med body. Flavor is smooth burnt malt, almost milky chocoate, and some earthy hop. It’s quit dry, and a bit astringent. Leaves a burning/tingling sensation on the tip of my tongue in the finish. Damn if it doesn’t suggest a touch of chili. Too bad these various releases are all crammed together.

brokensail (10527) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
A: The pour is a dark, dark brown color with a finger’s worth of khaki colored head. S: Nice licorice and roasted malt notes come through as well as a pleasant coffee aroma. There is a definite char aroma as well, though it’s not out of control. T: The flavor is extremely heavy on the roast, featuring more of the charred character that was present in the nose. Slightly ashy and acidic, but somewhat mitigated by some dark chocolates. M: Perhaps a bit thin in terms of body, which is strange for an oatmeal stout. Carbonation is a bit on the high side. D: A decent stout, though the presence of the char and ash is something I did not terribly enjoy.

Tap sample - Nitro. Poured a black color with a large fizzy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate dark coffee and sweet malt aroma. Medium dark chocolate flavor with a medium sweet coffee finish of moderate duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a good beer.
