4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Quite simply one of the best beers Iíve ever had.
Lower carbonation. Huge chocolate, cherry, some prune notes. A nice bit of sweetness and a great creamy mouthfeel. Put simply, this is one of the best beers - let alone stouts - that youíll try. If you see it, donít baulk at the price...BUY IT!

SAMPLE 75 ml at tasting. BB 2024. Hm... smells like a dark Fullerís Vintage - mighty malty and jammy, molasses and sweet chocolate, interesting spicy clovy and rye bread notes. Good warming alcohol. Excellent.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brown, black with some, latte-colored head. Aroma is plenty of roast, some liquorice, light smoke, earthiness. Taste is very roasted, slight smoke, some liquorice, slightly of the salty kind, some tar/peat, slight coffee. A hint of salty liquorice/tar candy. Full with decent carbonation. While you can feel the strength in the beginning, you quickly forget how strong this actually is. Getting through half a liter on your own is superbly easy.

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)

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.
