Thanks to JP and Tyler for picking this up for me when I couldnít make the release. Reviewed from notes. Poured into a tulip. Color is a dark brown with a few crimson highlights when held up to the light. Off white head with pretty good staying power. Nose is roasted malt, chocolate, hints of coffee, and a really nice dark fruit presence. The taste combines the roast and fruit very well. Good body that isnít too full. Drinks really well; Iím glad they finally bottled this. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-11-2010

Ughsmash (7008) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2011
Bomber. Poured clear, rich mahogany with a tall, sticky tan head.. medium-viscosity.. set up well in the glass. The aroma picked up burnt black and chocolatey malts, paired with more than ample pine and earthy hop accents.. warmth brought out darker fruits and caramelized vanilla bean.. warm and enticing. The flavor found charred darker fruits and black malts at the core, with grainy related sugars riding well through the finish.. a touch of maple and vanilla right on the back.. alcohol isnít really apparent until just after the swallow. Medium-bodied and very sweet on the palate.. a few too many residual sugars.. nice char to it.. overall a tasty and well-crafted brew.

Bottle, thanks to Greg. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit, some roast, coffee. Taste is sweet toffee, chocolate, coffee, dark fruit and more sweet malt with a bitter finish, finishing slightly bitter. Good stuff.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a dark brown color with an average brown frothy head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate malt and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a thick smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet chocolate flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. A smooth complex brew.

Bottle. Trade from SpencerDB, thanks a million. Pours dark brown with a medium longlasting light brown head. Aroma is cocoa, roasted malt, vanilla, Flavor is roasted malt, alcohol, bitter dark chocolate, The feeling in my mouth is like when I have just brushed my teeth with some really miny toothpaste. Quite weird, but I like it.

Bomber received as an extra in a recent trade with JCB. Thanks again Jason! Pours a dark chestnut brown color that appears almost black in the glass with mahogany edges when held to a light and a two finger light beige head. Very good retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap that coats the glass with large rings and chunks of soapy lacing. Deep roasted dark malt aroma with a ton of dark chocolate, caramel, toffee and coffee bean. Slightly smokey but not burnt smelling at all with hints of hazelnut, milk chocolate and subtle lactic cream. Chewy full body with an excellent balance of bitter roasted and sweet malt notes. Subtle smoke character with hints of roasted coffee/espresso bean and burnt toast. Very roasted but not acrid tasting with some lactic cream mid-palate that adds complexity and mouthfeel. The roasted notes are countered and excellently balance by hints of milk and dark chocolate, toffee, oatmeal and hazelnut. Although there is plenty of roast, this beer is bursting through with lots of luscious, silky chocolate and is incredibly well balanced. The ABV is excellently masked without a trace of alcohol heat, making this beer dangerously drinkable. This is one of the best examples of the style that Iíve ever had and I highly suggest seeking it out.
