Tap at Karbach. Pours black, tan head. Nice retention. Aroma is cocoa, coffee, faint pine, toast. Taste is cocoa, coffee, burnt caramel, piney hops. Moderate bitterness. Nice. Medium body and carbonation. Hard to tell at times that this is an IPA and not a stout or Porter, enjoyable, nonetheless.

Bomber from Spec’s - Memorial in Houston, TX. Murky very dark brown pour with an awesome dense rocky tan head. Bread crust, citrus, hint of pine, and herbal hop notes. Smooth palate with some density to it. Nice bright hops on the tongue. Pretty solid for me.

On tap, poured into a pint glass. The aroma is mellow and mild with notes of bread crust, woody spice, and a light roast with a strenghtening dank herb late. The beer is a rich, oily, clear cola with a big, off-white, foamy head that has a high amount of retention and lace. The taste is a medium high bitter and mellow, medium-light sweet. The oily and creamy texture is complimented by a soft, foamy head. The medium full body is flavored by bread and mild raisin and finishes with burnt grain and spice, some smoke, and a touch of a berry sweetness flourish. There’s a bread notes as well and an undertone of dark chocolate. The aftertaste is lightly sticky and has a strong rye character and bitter grapefruit note; it’s short and mellows quickly turning to bitter wax, then resin clean late.
