3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: nearly opaque black with just a hint of clear brown at the margins, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: cocoa, lactose, liquorice, red berries, floral, metallic. (6/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, high bitter. (5/10) Palate: full body, soft carbonation, big boozy bitter finish. (3/5)
Oof. Big, hot, heavy, and slightly metallic. Holy hell, Iíve had this sitting for over a year, and itís still hot and metallic? Clearly this thing ainít gonna settle down any time in the foreseeable future. Aggressive and unbalanced, but on the other hand itís boozy as hell, which is frankly never a bad thing. Plus, thereís the big bitter finish, so itís not a total wash. (12/20)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Gift from Neko-chan. Best by 2023, so perhaps a tad young. Large fruity nose, with raisins and plums, coffee, some floral hops peeking out, and a touch of ash. Dark brown/black, rocky tan head. Moderately heavy dark roast malt initial, fruity and tangy in mid palate with plums, soy sauce, fair bittering, and a lightly salty finish. Medium-heavy body, smooth and warming. Well-balanced and flavorful.

Review from memory. Dark fruits, roasted malt, chocolate and some cocoa. The taste follows the same note, a very good balance between dark chocolate and dark cherries.
