22 oz bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Juicy hop aroma, pine, tropical fruit, and grapefruit, with a hint of roasty cocoa. Nice blend dominated in the flavor by the hops (pine, floral, grapefruit) layered on soft roasty cocoa. Really well done.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours very dark brown with ruddy glints and a slight tan head. Aroma is citrus, smooth dark malt, and maybe some floral. Med body. Flavor is fruit, pine, earth, slightly chocolate malt, smooth burnt malt. And could be some citrus. The surviving non-malt flavor seems pine. Fair amount of hop. Could be a light hop burn. Pretty flavorful.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber: Aroma has got a nice pine note with a slight malt backing. Appearance is a dark black to brown with a slightly off white head that lingers. Taste has got the big hop notes with a medium malt texture that brings a nice balance to the brew. Palate is medium to high carbonation with an aftertaste that goes away quite quickly. Overall, Decent I wold get it again. Cheers!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small pour from a bottle. Pours clear black with a medium tan head and great lacing. Aroma is strong pine, dank wet leaves, perhaps a touch of roast. Medium sweet, light bitter, a lot of pine, some citrus, some malty notes, but not a lot of, well, black in this one; very light roasty notes are in there, but you have to be looking for them to notice. Medium body, Meh.

Translucent black brown. Hoppy nose with touch of dark roasted malts. Piney, wet hops light roast again. Agree with others this is more IPA like than ’black’. Really nice interpretation of the style.
