Opaque black - brown beer, good tan head. Palate is airy and smooth. Just a little fine carbonation. It’s a light touch with the dark malts. A little roast and cream. Whispers of dark fruits and coffee. Light semi dry finish. Quite a light and simple Imperial Stout.

bhensonb (10929) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours very dark brown/black with a cream dark tan head. Aroma of roasty malt with treacle and some herbal hop. Full bodied. Flavor is darkly roasty/burnt with treacle and non-fruity, non-resin hop. It is dry and almost astringent. Finishes with treacle notes and very bitter. Leaves a burnt earthy flavor in the mouth. Extremely tasty. So good of the brewer to release this base beer.

brokensail (10781) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 14, 2011
A: The beer pours almost black with a very small tan head to go with it. S: First thing I pick up on is a distinct sourness. Acrid, roasted malts and coffee follow, as well as a mild char. There is a light chocolate aroma with a slight molasses and toffee sweetness. T: A very sight sweetness to start, but the sourness and acridity of the roast follow shortly behind. There is a mild cocoa note as well as some coffee. A touch of molasses and licorice. M: The body is sort of light and watery for an imperial stout. Medium carbonation, however. O: Really disappointing as I was looking forward to trying this, given my enjoyment of the barrel aged versions.

Medium sweet flavour with dry chocolate, soft roast, earth, milk chocolate. Medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Moderately sweet to finish with mellow dark fruits and more milk chocolate.
