3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours dark black with a light brown foamy head. Aroma is nice milk chocolate, sweet with low levels of roastiness, no hop presence that I can detect. Smooth. Taste is very smooth, rich, creamy with a clean chocolate flavor. While this is a nice beer it suffers from an identity issue. It is not quite bold and strong enought to be a good Imperial Stout yet it is a little over the top and highly priced for an American Stout. Still good though just a strange beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A sour molasses aroma with hints of chocolate. Just a tad thin looking I don’t know I guess I would describe it as a weak brown look. Sour flavor that is not really what I expected. A good finishing bitter. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Good stout not great but good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with mahogany hints around the edges and a dense two-finger head that dissipates fairly quickly to very thin layer of bubbles along the top. Lacing is very good.
Huge sweet roasted malts in the nose with chocolate an coffee supporting. Dark fruits are also prevalent in the aroma, especially raisins and plums.
Roasted coffee and sweet malts start the flavor before giving way to dark chocolate and then sweet fruits. The finish is a tad bitter with hops and the coffee coming back in the aftertaste. Alcohol burn is evident in the background.
Mouthfeel is on the full side and very creamy, coating the mouth with a malted milk flavor.
This is a very drinkable stout and an excellent stout in general. I would seek this one out.

Dark tan persistent head. Nuts and cocoa aroma. Flavor is super dark roasted, almost a charcoal component, but it is good. Very nice overall.

I thought this beer was excellent. It had a huge body on it. Flavor and aroma were of roastiness and even a little dark fruits. Not much alcohol noticable at all. It actually reminded me of expedition a little bit which was a good thing.

Bomber shared with and courtesy of Maniac. Black with fine creamy tan head. Aroma of grain and roast malts with some chocolate and coffee. Flavor is roast and chocolate with a hefty hop bitterness. Finish is dry with persistent hop bitterness and some grain astringency. Bit of alchohol warming. Very tasty.
