4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber thanks to Dan. Pours a pitch black color with a medium brown head. A nice aroma of lactose, berries, slightly sour aroma. The flavor is rich roasted malts, metallic, lactose (massive), sourness like blackberries, a bit of caramel. I love this type of stout, very British. Lovely palate, very soft and smooth. Great beer.
