22oz waxed bomber pours with a dark mahogany body supporting a mocha head of foam. The aroma offers up booze, roasted malts, chocolate brownie, kind of rye like whiskey notes and then more booze at the end of the draw. The taste hits all at once with dark roasted malts, chocolate, sweet whiskey, a mild tart like rye whiskey note and then earthy booziness. Another sip brings up some mild barrel wood char too. Pretty darn nice.

Yozora (22) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2014
Bomber from Mikkeller webshop. Pours a black/dark brown with a tan head. Complex aroma of bourbon, booze, dark chocolate, vanilla, honey, coffee, plums, raisins and roasted malt. Mouthfeel is so silky and smooth. So well balanced, vanilla, bourbon, dark malts, light and dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, honey with a nice bitterness. Carbonation is on the lower side which imo does this beer justice, served it at around 12 degrees but even after it warmed up it was like cozing up to an old friend, didn’t want the bottle to end. So complex flavour but all the flavours marry and are so well balanced, they all play in harmony. Payed a hefty price for this but all worth it.

AirForceHops (3113) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 13, 2014
Beige wax seal, 2012 bottle share by AdamJackson. Thanks sucka! Pours with a dark mahogany body fast reseeding mocha head. The nose is chocolate, weak coffee with faint traces of vanilla and sweet bourbon.

Flavor has moderate roasted chocolate malts, dark brownie batter with traces of burnt sugar. Deep dark grain body. The back end of the sip has mellow bourbon vanilla, sweet caramel and light oak barrel. A faint trace of alcohol after the sip to give a light warming sensation as it goes down. Mouthfeel is very smooth texture but the body is medium leaning on thin. Overall, great flavors but is it worth the hefty price tag??
