Bomber courtesy of Alexsdad06 – thanks Brad! Pours pitch black with a one finger brown head. The nose is roasted nuts, vanilla, roasty malt and molasses. The taste is ashy cocoa, nuts, roasted malt, brown sugar and coffee. Medium creamy mouthfeel. Tasty brew.

Bottle. Pours black with a small tan head. Nice aroma of malt, chocolate, and fruit. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruit, vanilla, and caramel. Had trouble picking up the walnuts, but am sure that they added to the unique flavor. Very good.

I did not like this beer, and I’m unsure why so many others have. It has an oily texture which is very off-putting and a heavy taste that is too heavy for my interests.
