22oz bomber poured into a shaker. Pours a very dark brown, but not quite black with about a finger of off-white head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate and coffee. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Caramel, chocolate and coffee with a little sweet cream at the very end. Medium-full bodied with a creamy yet sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a very long warming finish. Overall, very good. I would love to drink this again in the future.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
It pours black with a 1 finger head of off white foam and has some nice lacing.
It smells roasty with a hint or 2 of fruit, but the nose is very light and I’m serving it at room temp.
There’s some roasted malt in the taste, a touch of fruit, a light tartness, and quite a bit of a milky flavour. I don’t find this dry at all and if I had to put a style label on it, it would a Milk Stout. That being said, it’s tasty and brings quite a bit of warming.
On the edge of being full bodied with a light amount of carbonation, it certainly IS a smooth one. I like it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. Murky brownish color with a medium dense light beige head that recedes slowly to a film. Patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate malt and coffee. Medium body with a sweet malty character and flavors of grain, toffee and cocoa. The finish is toasty malt with a lingering sweet aftertaste that leaves hints of licorice. Above average overall.

This delivers. Dark brown with an off white head. The nose shows layers of malt and cola. The palate is full bodied, rich and creamy. Sweet malts and a hint of toffee. Balanced finish with almonds and the perfect amount of balanced bitterness.

Bomber. Honestly, the label and name caught my attention. However, the description doesn’t lie; this is an original taste for a stout. The scent was a peculiar cola, the appearance a typical dark chocolate. The palate was a sticky syrup with a thick body and fizzy finish. The taste was oddly sweet at first then nutty notes mixed with cream and to finish a toasty roasty aftertaste. A winner.

Bready aroma. Nice black color with chocolaty brown color when held up to the light very little head. Very sweet milk chocolate taste. Very smooth on the palate, but leaves milky feeling . Overall a very good beer.
