4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber pours an opaque dark brown/black with decent mocha head which leaves good lacing. Aroma is full of chocolate, roasted malts, and licorice. Taste is sweet at first, with lots of chili and black pepper spices,alcohol and some hoppy bitterness in the finish. Body is full with average carbonation but a creamy mouthfeel. This one is to be savored slowly. If I see it again, I’ll glady try it again.

Thick inky brew. Smells like Some quechua portion of grass bark fire. Black chocolate looks like it would stain. Yellowishfroth. Leaves an aftertaste of thick strong mocha. If it didn’t have subdued bubbling through the throat, its mouthfeel would be like chocolate milk.

Pours pitch black with a frothy mocha head. Very strong chocolate aroma, roasted malt scents, and slight liquorice. Taste is rich but not overly sweet with a long dry bitterness through the finish. Full body, creamy mouth feel, and lively carbonation. Amazing beer.

O - another pepper aged stout? I must be the only person that doesn’t like these, esp considering how highly rated Bomb! And bible belt are. Would rather have an expedition or blackout stout.

I love Yeti. It was hard to get a bottle (1 bottle limit at my local store) but it was a good find. Pour was thick black and had a good solid tan head. Taste was chocolatey goodness with a vanilla note late on. I didn’t taste the cayenne as much but I just got another bottle and I will look for that next time.

Bottle is BB July 2012, making it a 2011 brew afaik. Bomber from Redmonds. Happy birthday to me. Coffee black pour, then crema-like residue of a head after the initial fizzy mocha head settles. Nose is gorgeous, big whiskey tinted, oaky, woody milk chocolate, cocoa notes, touches of dark sherry in the aroma too. Crazy intense flavour, rich resiny coffee flavour, intense coffee bitterness, chocolate highlights, more dark sherry and rich dark fruits, figs and honey, flavour pours into the nasal cavity when drinking, my god. Big heavy body, barely there carbonation, slick mouthfeel. Finish is ridiculously complex and lasts forever, loads of warming booze. So rich. Brilliant. It?s all a bit Thomas Hardy ale. Would love to let one age even more.
