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

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.

3/31/11. Bomber courtesy emacgee! Black pour with a big brown head that sticks and laces quite a bit. Complex aroma of dark fruits, molasses, dark malts, and chocolate, with that certain hint of sour stout. Big chocolate flavor again with a dash of sour paired with a finish of dry coffee, molasses, and dark fruits. Quite nice!

Bottle shared by Nate into a Lost Abbey glass. A black pour with, a medium tan head, ok retention and lacing nothing special...Light aroma of light bitter coffee, chocolate, and too much alcohol...The taste is decent not at all what is expected for me when Iím drinking a baltic porter, I want something sweet but with strong flavors. This is not at all sweet, way to much alcohol, a little roasted coffee. An average baltic porter, wanted to like it, just not a great bp.

Smooth. Just plain smooth. Great label, inky brew with a nice tan head. Thanks to LuckyDog for bringing this back from the brewpub and splitting it with us up at work. Toasted, and with the right amount of roast. Pretty dry for the style. Parched soy. Good creamy mouthfeel. A very nice pint.
