3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber courtesy of RoNo. Pours oily pitch black with a small creamy dark mocha head that leaves some lacing and trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet and tiny spicy with roasted malts, quality dark chocolate, cheyenne pepper, leather, raisins, dark roast coffee, alcohol, cookie dough, charred wood, burnt cereal and hints of peat. Taste is slightly sweet and bitter with roasted malts, bitter chocolate, dark roast coffee, smoked chili, tar, charred wood, toffee, oatmeal cookies, leather and hints of vanilla fudge. Mouthfeel is round, smooth, very tiny roasted astringent, tiny boozy and near full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, bitter chocolate, charred wood, red chili powder and hints of vanilla fudge. Good stuff as expected.

Bottle. Dark chocolate on all levels, a little dry across the palate, just a hint of booze, it tastes like I imagine it?s like to lick a oak tree. Aromas ate molasses, cocoa, oak, dates, booze, smoke, a little hoppyness and ash at the end.

Favorite chocolate beer I’ve had to date. Dark black with a purple head. Taste slightly bitter dark chocolate with a sweet, pleasant finish.

As the name implies, it's a lot like yeti, which is a good thing, but with more chocolate, which wasn't really an improvement in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, this is a great beer, but I just think the original Yeti is better.

Bomber bottle. Aroma is a little roasty, alcohol evident in the nose. Jet black, and opaque with nice light brown head that quickly dissipates. Wonderful taste! A touch sweet. Notice the wood aging, but it’s not in your face and is very nicely balanced. I love how all of the flavors combine perfectly. Notice the cayenne in just a touch of heat and tingling in aftertaste. Overall, a terrific imperial stout!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The aroma is pleasant from chocolate and vanilla, roasted malts and all the other classic smells you know should be in a good imperial stout. The taste is coffee, burnt malts and a lingering bitterness from the dark chocolate. I could have enjoyed a little more oak notes than I did, and I don’t catch any of the cayenne that is supposedly in this one? But... it is very good stuff, no doubt.

Pitch black. Like coffee. Brown head. Aroma of chocolate. Taste of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Not that sweet. More bitterness. Full body. Smooth.

Pours a thinner viscosity, but still very black and plenty of khaki head. Chocolate, oak, and vanilla on the nose; follows onto the palate. A very nice roasted malt note on the finish with the rest of the previously listed notes. Good flavors, but a bit thin.
