Bomber---> snifter. Pours a dark amber black with a thick light brown head that takes quite some time to shrink with pretty good lacing. Aroma is sweet fig, heavy alcohol, light smoke, and molasses. So much going on with the taste- dark chocolate, coffee, raisins, black pepper, mild hop bitter, oak, bourbon, vanilla, and booze burn. Palate is very thick- almost chewy (which is a good thing to me) with very little carbonation. This drinks more like an impy stout mixed with a roided up barleywine.

Oily black pour with a thin khaki head that fades to nothing. Aroma is molasses, sticky dates, wood, and chocolate. Taste is dark fruits, syrup, wood, vanilla, and some coffee. Alcohol is nearly completely hidden except for the warmth. Syrupy texture with very little carbonation.

Aroma: Molasses and coffee. Perhaps a bit of toffee, maple syrup, and raisin. 3/5
Appearance: Fizzy, fair, flat head. 3/5
Taste: Medium body. Creamy and alcholic texture (very hot), fizzy carbonation with a bitter aftertaste.
Overall: Not bad, need to tone down the alcohol.

On tap. Opaque chocolate with a lasting disc of cream. Nose is molasses, citrus, raisin and dark cherry. Flavors of prune, molasses, dark chocolate, peppery citrus, woody hops, cherry brandy, light char and smoke. ABV is noted, but not like you would think in a 16% brew. Heavy body has light-medium carbonation and is slightly sticky, but a pretty easy drinker compared to others of the same vitality.

One of my favorite beer series. Pours a dark brown like motor oil with lots of legs and lacing. Coffee colored head. Aroma is not as strong as I remembered in the 15, but still sweet with lots of malts. Taste is strong, malty with some muted hop flavor. Alcohol contents is strong but rather muted for its high content. Excellent beer!

It's funny people say this is so boozy. Anybody that can read will notice its made to be overkill. If you can handle the complexity then it's perfect. So much going on. Burnt malts in the nose with some candi sugar then the flavor just blasts your senses and the finish is like taking a shot of rum, vodka and whiskey blended together with melted Carmel taffy. If you already have hair on your chest or would like to grow some seek this out.

68? That’s all? Wow, lots of bad palates. Either that or it tastes way different in bottle than it does on draught.
Anyway, draught > Common Table. Surprisingly smooth and not totally boozy or alcohol hot considering the %. Plenty of good warm interesting flavors. I could’ve sipped on plenty of these tonight or any chili night for that matter.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Talk about overkill! Deep brown color with a thin patchy head that mostly gets pushed off to the sides. This is boozy as hell; tons of thick caramel malt to go with raisins, sweet sticky molasses, and cotton candy. It warms the body up, that’s for sure. There’s a sharp alcoholic finish that mixes with some hop bitterness. Meh. Definitely drink this one in small doses and even then it’s not very good. Age might do this some good. I believe they used 16 different malts and hops. But hey, if that’s your thing then you might like this. Not for me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown (almost black) color with a moderate tan head. Don’t get a lot off the nose of this, but there is a faint smell, which is inviting. Taste is a little malty, but nothing terribly remarkable. There is a bit of an alcohol feel on the back-end, which cropped up out of nowhere.
