Bomber... Aroma is booze and dark fruit. Appearance is black with a tan head. Taste is sweet, dark malt, and booze with hints of toffee and caramel. Palate is a medium mouthfeel. Overall, a really well done beer. Very nice barreled beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ CBC 2015. Pours viscous black with a small creamy
dark mocha head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass
while dissipating. Smell is malty with roasted malts, burnt
caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, charred wood, dark roast
coffee, milk chocolate, coconut milk, green chili and
bourbon alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter and malty. Mouthfeel
is round, tiny viscous, slightly astringent, tiny boozy and
medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with
roasted malts, burnt caramel, butterscotch, vanilla fudge,
charred buttery wood, dark roast coffee, milk chocolate,
green chili and bourbon alcohol. A good stout with less than
optimal barrel treatment. Tons of green chili and buttery

Aroma is roasted malt, hazelnut, cherry, vanilla bean, barrel aged, a bit of coffee and chocolate and some booze. Appearance is black, light tan head, appears thick. Taste is vanilla, hazelnut, booze, cherries, roasted malt, chocolate, very nice. Mouthfeel is thick, rich, soft carbonation and creamy. Overall, this is one to revisit after the booze tones down.

Bottle pour opaque black with moderate tan head. Nose butter, vanilla, chocolate. Taste similar to nose. Milk chocolate, vanilla, light roast, and again, some butter. Nice mouth feel. Not sure if the butter is diacetyl or from the barrel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pour at Toronado Seattle, San Diego tasting event. Pours black with a tan foam ring head. Huge aroma of rich graham cracker, chocolate malt, milk chocolate, coffee. Like a chocolate chip cookie. Delicious, but extremely rich. Sweet. Cinnamon. Bourbon hinted finish, with a lingering vanilla chocolate. One of a kind stout for sure, but one of those stouts where just a few ounces is just right. Would love to try again someday. Very fun beer.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Smells like butter. Tastes like butter. This is rancid. Really sad that they let this hit the market at all, knowing it was such a mess.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, caged and corked. Pours with the looks of a monster, meaty and black with substantial toppings. This drinks with much more sweetness than I anticipated, with a bit of candied cherries and licorice. (#6047, 10/11/2015)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black, with a huge brown head. Smells boozy, vanilla, and fudge. Taste is Vanilla, bourbon, some dark chocolate. Very heavy palate. I mean, it was good, but, I don’t know, kind of typical? does that make sense?
