COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We toned down the hops a bit to allow cocoa nibs to contribute some pleasing bitterness, while vanilla notes from the oak combine with the cocoa to create an aroma and flavor akin to a gourmet chocolate bar. A dash of cayenne keeps things lively, adding just a bit of heat to the finish. A Yeti for summer? Hell yes.

This is one strange beer. Pours black with dark tan almost brown head. Strong oak and chocolate nose. The cayenne pepper makes your tongue and throat itchy.... Strange but fantastic brew!

Pours pitch black with dark tan head. Aromas of chocolate and oak. Great choc flavor up front with a spicy cayenne finish. Completely weird but awesomely amazing.

Bottle - Poured a very dark brown-black with decent lasting tan foam head. Vanilla, chocolate, roasted malts and plenty of oak aged goodness swirling around here. A great brew that has just a little bit of a kick to keep it interesting. Enjoyed this one!

Great color and appearance. Thicker head that lasts longer than most Imperials. Smells great. First smell is medium bodied malts and then the sweet chocolate. Taste is great. Has a milkshake quality. Nice bitter finish. Palate lingers. Cheyenne becomes noticiable the longer you drink this beer but it is never over-powering. Sweetness gets old quick. Nice beer at first but difficult to drink a lot at one time. Still a nice beer and unique taste.

THOUGHTS: Extremely chocolaty. Cayenne wasn’t very noticeable at first, but soon my tongue and throat ha a slight burn going on. The cayenne made the beer memorable, and while the heat did grow on me as I sipped, I think it would be even better without it. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a very dark brown that was opaque black in the glass with a light brown head that mostly diminished, but left excellent lacing like fine lingerie. The aroma was moderate to heavy chocolate, lighter chocolate syrup and other chocolates and way lighter roasted malts, along with vanilla, alcohol, dark fruit and berries. The initial flavor was sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic; while the finish was very sweet and lightly bitter with a long duration. There was chocolate, milk chocolate, dark fruits, alcohol, light piney hops, spicy pepper, some roasted malt, vanilla, a little dark chocolate and some coffee. The full body was mostly oily and a little syrupy with fizzy carbonation and a lightly astringent finish.

Black pour with a tan head. Minerally kelp aromas with black malts, mild cayenne. Frothy, full mouthfeel. Rich chocolate flavors with dark roasted malts, candi sugar with a medium to big hot pepper burn in the finish. great stout.

Bomber bottled in July of 05. Jet black pour tan thin head. Chocolate malt scent. Very smooth and balanced with a dark chocolate bitterness with a kick at the end that is spicy.. A beer both the wife and I enjoyed. Very hard to find here.....

Yup. Chocolate and stout. Very nice combo. Rich and sweet. Good pour with tan/brown head. Vanilla and slight bourbon notes. Tasty. Wife turned it down. Must make it through the bomber.

Thanks to the Ratman for sharing this, pours almost black with a dark tan finger thick head. Nose Sweet and peppery spice. The flavor is chocolate, roasted malt and a definite cayenne burn that lasts into the finish. Thin for an Imperial Stout.

bomber at a kw group tasting. shared by jan primus. pours black with a tan head. huge hoppy yeti aroma. i didnt get much chocolate in the nose. the chocolate did show up mid palate and the finsh showed the hops and the cayenne. i think it would have been more enjoyable without the heat because each sip made the finish seem hotter and hotter. still a really nice beer overall, thx for the share jan!
