This one needs to warm up to let the richness of the malts to mellow out the slightly unpleasant bitterness up front. When cold, the other flavors are muted.

Rating #2123 - 2015.10.12 - Bottle from Cellar (2014). Big bubbly black pour with a tan head that bubbles/oozes slowly. Aroma is heavy roast malt, coffee grounds, chalk, caramel,mild vanilla. Taste is roast malt toffee sweetness, and a bold roasty bitterness, medium-heavy alcohol character, but well tempered with the luxurious toffee sweetness.

9/4/16. Bomber. Black pour under a really nice tan head, great lacing. Looks good! Wonderful aroma, creamy, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, touches of caramel and dark fruits. Great flavor, mixed chocolates, enough dryness and dark malt bitterness to balance, lingering ashy aspects, touches of dark fruits and just barely a metallic touch. Smooth, slick mouthfeel with good carbonation. Tasty!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle @ Belmont Party Supply / Dayton OH --- Aroma of roasted malt. Opaque black color, brown head, big waves of lace. Taste is big, smooth roasted malt that quickly adds black coffee and bitter chocolate. All flows to a long ending with light carbonation. This is strong enough to defy some of the "velvet" the tag line describes. Light alcohol deep in the finish.
