Sample at the Salem brewpub. Dark brown color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of roast malt, pine and hops. Medium body with flavors of roasted malt, resiny hops and coffee. The finish is roasty malt and coffee up front with a mildly hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.

willisread (2272) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 28, 2015
Tap at BCS. Deep brown with no head. Burned coffee, piney hops and roasted malts on the nose. Body is thin and watery on the palate. Some light roasted vegetables. Bitter and astringent finish with burned malts and espresso. Harsh finish. Needs some work.

Bomber from Mega Foods. Black in color in my goblet with traces of dark amber. Nose is coffee and hops. Lots of coffee. Nice hop presence as well. Definitely a hoppy brew. Huge coffee flavors as well. Nice balance of the flavors. Good coffee beer.

On tap at a local pub. Great flavor, but I am a sucker for a CDA! Pleasant burnt flavors, hoppy aroma and perfect color.
