Ibrew2or3 (7411) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Bomber courtesy of douglas88. Pours deep darkness with nice mocha head. The aroma offers up a mixture of caramel, black strap molasses, dark roasted malts, chocolate malts, semi tart and fruity chocolate covered pomegranates and earthiness. Hmmm. The taste starts off with dark roasted malts, some sweet dark fruity esters and then spicy black licorice. To midway a nice load of chocolate brownie comes forward. It ends pretty neutral.

Pours a black motor oil color with a brown head. Nice color to the pour. Chocolate and burnt coffee round out the aroma. Amazing taste. I like. Sweet at first with some nice dry bitterness at the end. Mmm. Bit of creaminess at the beginning as well.

GT2 (9272) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 19, 2011
651mL thanks to tastybeer. The pour is a clear, deep mahogany looking fairly black in the glass. A large, deep cocoa head slowly towers high and settles eventually with nice webby lace. Nose on this one is raisin, prune, sugar, ash, mild chili and DMS. As it warms it gains oxidized apple slices and acetaldehyde. Taste up front is bitter and bland, then moves to total cigarette ash and powder/dirt. Long, bitter, earthy finish.

22oz Bomber – Trade – Douglas88
Dark Brown in color, clear with a thin tan head. Big chocolate and coffee aroma with roasty dark malt backing in the flavor. Has a thick chew to the beer. Lots of lingering tobacco in the finish. You can tell this is a big beer it finished dry with a slight alcohol spike.
