Bomber shared by Marcus. Purs very black with a few tan bubbles. Warm caramel and dark fruit aroma. Full bodied. Flavor is smooth, oaky, caramel, dark fruit and dark baking chocolate. Bourbon and vanilla? There’s so much going on that I’m not sure about those. Heat is hardly noticeable. This is a great and mellow beer.
