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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Burnt pineapple, chocolate / roast malt, pine sap, spruce needles, sawdust shavings, chocolate grapefruit bubblegum. Medium-full body, semi-sweet, strongly hoppy, not oppressively bitter. Soft body, a little smoke-y, a little savory. One of the better examples of a hoppy stout. At the same time it smells like a dull bandsaw burning pine in 7th grade shop class. From bottle.
