I truly love this beer! Being from Colorado I am extremely proud of Great Divide for offering such an amazing beer (well, all of their beers are pretty amazing if you ask me) Anyways, this beer is motor-oil thick. Laces up nicely, pours extremely dark. Very nice malty flavors with chocolate and dark fruits such as figs and raisons. Enough bitter in here to keep the malts in check, but nothing in this beer seems overwhelming. I am always amazed when I have this beer, and i’ve had it hundreds of times (lucky Old Chicago right near my house sells the oak aged version of this on tap! YUM!)

Bomber. Poured black with a creamy, chocolate milk colored head that left great lacing. The aroma was hoppy, with roasted malts and some alcohol. The flavor found chocolate, roast, and a hoppy background. Full body and creamy texture. A slight bitterness throughout and warming feeling going down. Nice!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle Pours a murky black with a good brown red head. The head lasts very well and produces good lacing. Has a very nice aroma of roasted malts with hints of toffie and carmel chocolate. The taste is blended excellently. Has a good amount of hops to produce a smooth sweetness with its malt backbone. Has a medium body and a good amount of carbination. This is real good. A nice bold stout with soft touches to produce an excellent brew.
