4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle pours a viscous, opaque black with some thin, beige head. Nose is really nice, that classic Bourbon County aroma, vanilla, coffee, licorice, caramel, cake icing. The nose also has this great complimenting fruit, cherry candy, cherry cordial, a little cough syrup, red wine reduction. Flavor has a ton of sweet cherry, it almost tastes like New Glarus Belgian Red blended 50/50 with Bourbon County Stout, a little cough syrup, chocolate, coffee, caramel. Full, sticky, sweet finish. Do not age this, the cherry will just fall out. Incredibly drinkable and very, very tasty.

Poured from a mini growler into a water glass.
Amazing aroma of dark cherry, spice, vanilla, oak, and toffee. Taste is of bourbon, fruit, roastiness, and alcohol. This beer drinks a bit like a smooth manhattan.

Fresh from bottle. Black pour with thin, light brown head. Malt and rye whiskey scent with a lot of cherries. Tastes similar to bourbon county, but with more cherry and a bit of a sour bite. Great, silky mouthfeel. Overall, just feels a bit lacking next to BCBCS.

Pours a dark black just BCS with a thin tan head. Aroma is bourbon, malt, chocolate and just the right amount of cherry. Something you want to sip on. Big bourbon flavors blended beautifully with the cherries, chocolate and slight vanilla. Not very acidic or bitter. Amazing beer

Bomber shared at RBWG Grand Tasting and again at Pre-Hunahpu Tasting Thursday. Pours a dark obsidian color with a tan head. Nose is roasted malts, some light booze, some mild sweet cherries, chocolate, some oak, vanilla, and some mild tart cherry. Flavor is similar- a chocolate, cherry, booze, oak, vanilla, and sweet cocktail of flavors. Medium in body and a nice sipper to ponder.
