COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It was upon my emergence from my craft that I realized I had traveled not to another place, but to another time. About me lumbered a number of stout men, burdened by heavy loads. Finding a sudden need to slake my thirst and steady my mind, I called out to one of these porters. He pointed to a tavern, inside of which I found this roasty, chocolaty, and supremely drinkable brew.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours dark brown with a creamy/foamy light tan head. Aroma is mostly chocolate. Near full bodied. Flavor is dark malt (smooth), chocolate, and something bitter that might be coffee. It finishes arguably dry, and coffee bitter. Not espresso, but coffee. It’s a good drink.
