3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, at RBNG-14 Grand Tasting. An almost black one, unclear, and topped by a dense, dark beige head. The aroma has a nice spiced touch as well as mocha and some dark sugars. Some peppery hints in the flavor with roasted malts and mocha. A nice hoppy bitterness chimes in with some pine cones too. Full body and a lovely carbonation level. Rather sweet, but in a nice way. Lasting roasted and mocha-ish finish. A pretty unusual one, but I really liked it. 140215

Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours black with a foamy/bubbly/creamy tan head. Aroma is rough burnt malt with some really tough/harsh dark chocolate. And crude/rude coffee. It’s so strong it’s almost offensive. Med+ body. Flavor is like chewing crude dark chocolate with smooth burnt malt, treacle, and something hinting of chili. This is so strongly flavorful it’s hard to compare to other IS. KS certainly did not scrimp on the ingredients. Powerfully flavorful ale.

The pour is black in color with a tan head. Nice roasted malt, a hint of cocoa, and some good coffee aromas. A hint of vanilla, some burnt sugar and licorice, as well as some molasses. The flavor is a touch sweet with nice licorice, sugar, and molasses notes. Plenty of coffee and roast, good chocolate flavors, and some toffee as it warms. Really nice body to this beer as well.
