Deep brown with a dark head. Roasted, cocoa, a bit of earthy spiced hops. Boldly flavored. Medium to full body. Finish is roast, chocolate, and background spice- lasting. Very enjoyable American Strong. Veers to the malty side but with plenty of spicy hops to avoid being a sweet bomb. God stuff.

pushkinwow (2628) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Dark mahagony with a biege creamy head. Quite malty and creamy, nutty, hints of chocolate and coffee with a slightly bitter finish that becomes dry.

12oz can poured into glass. Dark brown color with a thin bubbly head. Nice aroma of caramel, chocolate and roasted malts. Easy to drink despite the 8%ABV, it’s masked very well.

Can from Total Wine.

Pours dark with an attractive light brown head. The aroma brings a surprising amount of citrus along with the roast chocolate malts -- it could even be a black IPA from how it smells. But the flavor is much roastier, heavy coffee and mocha elements, alcohol fairly forward. I actually like this one quite a bit more than B-Bomb, not that this is saying much.

Pours black with a creamy looking brown head. Aroma of some hops, more malt, light roast. Taste has a great balance of hop and toffee malt, light bitterness, some hop, but more roast. Smooth texture, soft carbonation. Great beer, awesome price. I’m really liking everything this brewery does.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Draft @ Fremont. Deep amber brown with a tiny head. Aroma of biscuits, cocoa, holiday spice and brown sugar. Flavor is cocoa, dark bread, spice and light alcohol. Medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Not bad.

Bomber. Aroma is roasty, like good coffee, pussy, like good pussy, wet river rock. Pours deep mahogany with a one finger beige head with good retention. Taste is lightly sweet, roasty, a little smoky, nutty, earthy, finishing lightly bitter. Perfectly creamy mouthfeel with average carbonation. When it comes to winter warmers, this is top of the line, although I prefer the bourbon barrel version.

22 oz bottle, thanks Poisoneddwarf- Pours a very dark ruby red with a thin light tan head that reduces immediately to a collar. Aroma is caramel malt, some cinnamon, chocolate, somewhat subdued. The taste is velvety smooth, creamy, chocolate, caramel, toffee, nutty. Body is medium and mouthfeel is creamy and lasts long after the swallow. This brewery continues to impress me, great craft brewery that is quickly making a name for itself.
