Black pour. Big frothy head that slowly falls. Tons of lacing. Big spicy chocolate aroma. Pepper and hops. Taste is a chocolate and pepper bomb. More on the chocolate side though. Creamy and smooth. A bit thin in body, but not so much that it sucks. This beer is fantastic.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber crushed with TheRon. Pours very dark reddish brown with a tan head that sticks around. I poured too much out and got a ton of the floaties from the bottom of the bottle. Initial aroma is grassy, earthy hops, some spiciness, a good amount of roast/coffee. Pretty light-bodied, easy drinking, which is good since it’s 90 degrees out. Flavor is dominated by earthy, grassy hops and more roast. Surprisingly a bit sour at the same time, maybe from the yeast suspended in the beer. Not bad.
