Draft at brewery. Lots of chocolate and coffee in the nose. Taste is lightly tart and dry finish. Slightly watery. Just seems a bit light all around from aroma to flavor to mouthfeel. Even for a dry stout

Bomber from the brewery. Pours very dark brown with a bubbly dark tan head. Aroma of herby, dark malt with chocolate. Might be a touch of anise. Med+ body. Flavor is smooth dark malt, very dark chocolate, and some herb/hop it’s hard to pin down. It’s very, very smooth. Drinks well.

Bomber, picked up today at the winery - brewery. Poured dark brown with medium tan head. Nose was a blend of many aromas, spicy chocolate, cola/root beer, nutty....taste was balanced, medium bodied, lively, with a nice long finish. This place is a real find if you are in the area.

Draft @ Gold Hill Brewery. Hugely impressed by this one. Pours a deep, dark-cola color; creamy, fine-bubbled light-tan head with excellent retention and lacing. Incredibly complex nose: leather, dark fruits, cola, chocolate, and just a touch of green apple that does nothing wrong here. Medium body; moderate CO2; light acidity; no show of alcohol. Medium chocolate and cola, with light contributing notes of leather, dark dried fruits, a touch of raisin; hugely aromatic, and way more complex than a stout should be from a brewery no one’s ever heard of. Delicious. Lasting, dry finish of dark chocolate, leather, hints of licorice. Hugely impressed here.
