Bomber from Sam’s Quik Shop in Durham. Pours midnight black with a small light brown head which nearly disappeared but always created swirly patterns. Nose and taste are huge everything--nuts, soy, chocolate, dark fruits, some sweet coffee hints, and a decent amount of hops fighting their way through. Palate is full and rich. Glad I shelled out the $12.99.

Oil black with tan head. Aroma is rich chocolate with some almond notes. Taste is the same, with beautiful cocoa and toast. Rich and sweet, but not cloying. Thanks, Dan!

Opaque, near black body with nearly a half inch of dense, beige head. If Evil Twin is involved, the stout will have a beautiful appearance. Roast and chocolate in the nose. Lovely. Terrific flavor. So rich and full. Silky on the palate. This, friends, is a world class imperial stout.

[ keg ][ 4oz ][ @Bier Station ][ $4 ][ snifter ][ 06.04.16 ]
sepia with thin tan head, drops to oily ring. Stinging licorice sweet dirty nose, boozy with light oat elements. Boozy, inky front palate, light wheat and wood to balance but way sweet inky chocolate with licorice hints all through front and mid palate. Finishes creamy oat, still licorice and booze.

Bomber stashed behind the counter at Giant Eagle in Grandview. Bottled in March... so 2nd batch I guess: black pour, medium brown head that disappears quickly. nice aroma of chocolate, tobacco, molasses, dark fruit. tastes are rich cocoa, chocolate, roasted malts, light woody, faint smoke. finishes with coffee. palate is thin to medium slick oily. pretty drinkable for all that’s going on.

Batch 2 (10.5%), what pain this was to find on the site. Black pour, tan head, good lace/retention. Aroma is fairly textbook - roast, chocolate, caramel, light darker fruit, light licorice. Medium to full body, flavor matches aroma with a lightly sweet finish, oily mouthfeel. Good but forgettable.

On tap at El Bait Shop, batch #2 (10.5%). Black appearance with a light brown head. Aroma and flavor of dark fruit, esters, molasses, light chocolate malt and hints of coffee. Rich, sweet, smooth and creamy with a full body and a mild roasted bitterness towards the finish. Good.

Draft. Black pour with brown head. Roasted, chocolate, oak, vanilla aromas. Vanilla, chocolate, roasted malts, lacking nothing flavor wise while remaining easily drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich robust and nutty with some cola, chocolate, and sweet grass. Really thick and chewy beer that is tough to drink quickly but coats the palate with lasting flavor.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Great aroma of molasses, charred wood, burnt caramel, light licorice and light smoke. Tastes smokier than the aroma suggests. Still some big burnt caramel and char, mild dark fruit and licorice. Full body. Big thick beer that was very enjoyable.
