3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This version strikes me as more back of tongue bitter. Which I don't care for here. Before and after that I like the base and nice dark khaki head. But the first beer from new brewery let's me down a little bit:( but you will have that!

Bomber from the brewery. Strong chocolate and cocoa on the nose. Black with a brown head which sticks around nicely. Really great flavor, nice hoppy stout. Would love to drink this again. No real alcohol flavoring.

From notes-On tap, pours a typical dark color with a thin tan head. Aroma of burnt malts with a hint of chocolate. Taste followed the nose really good. Had to have 2 of these on the tour, a good Rye Stout.

Bomber. I was hesitant to pick this one up, usually rye is a red flag for me. But boy am I glad I did. Huge chocolate note. Unsweetened baker cocoa. Coffee roast. There is a touch of rye in there but it’s really in the background. More flavor and thickness than you expect from a 7%er.

Bottle is probably 6-7 months old. Pours murky brown/black with tall tan head. Aroma is stale coffee, rose petal, some chocolate. Taste is sweet cocoa nib with a bit of bitter coffee and floral notes as well. Got even more complex as it warmed. Enjoyable.

Bottle... Pours dark brown with a small, creamy, khaki head. The malty, vinous aroma boasts dark chocolate and red wine. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. The flavor is deeply roasted and bitter - 85% cacao chocolate stands out. Lengthy, scorched, burnt-cocoa finish. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a very special brew. Starts out like a sweet stout but the hops take a bigger profile after a while. Perfect look, black with a tan head. Very good indeed.
