bomber. not quite what I expected after reading the name of this beer - but was happy with the results. there is more fruit in here than coffee, in my opinion. I get a strong aroma and flavor of plum. The plum and slight citrus notes dominate the overall flavor of this stout. There is a bit of coffee to it, but not as much as I expected. Overall, this is a very good stout that I would definitely buy again. If you want to try it, get it now as it is only available in the winter months.... and the price is right @ $3 / bomber.

Not as big of a nose as some stouts, but the smooth taste makes up for it. Nice easy drinkable stout, with just about the right amount of everything. Nothing overpowers or outstands like some others, which could be a good thing to get away from. A little watery palate but thats probably the Cappuccino flavor coming through. Decently priced as well. Thanks BillVanE

DietPepsican (1578) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - NOV 29, 2007
Pours dark brown with a thick tan head. Had a nice coffee aroma. Flavor was not as great. Coffee but with odd funky fruits and spoiled cream. Finished nice, thick like youd expect. Enjoyable but something seemed off. Thanks to Bockyhorsey for this one!

Dark brown pour with nice brown head with big roasted coffee bean. Flavor is much the same, with a hint of dried fruit. Body is medium with a good tangy finish. Was suprised to see the higher alcohol. Never really got the warmth of an 8%.

Bottle. Pours dark brown/black, medium light brown head the dissipates to thin. Aroma is coffee, molasses, toffee. Taste is coffee, some smoke and a little bit of plum like fruit. Finish is bitter and coffee, medium body. Bitterness lingers for a while. Decent, but not great.

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2007
Pours a deep brown, borderline black color. Aroma is as the name would suggest, coffee. The coffee while evident, is well balanced and not over powering in any way. There is a nice roasted grain aroma, with a hint of smokiness wafting upwards at the end. The flavor is not as aggressive as I anticipated, but is a bit on the sweet side, with a dark fruit flavor (which I finf odd) coming through on the finish. Pretty decent, though not spectacular.

Bomber: Poured black with a slightly tan head. The aroma had a lot going on. I smelled coffee, chocolate, dried fruit, and alcohol. It tasted like spent coffee grains, with chocolate and roasted flavors in the background. The finish had a prune taste to it. Overall, I thought it was just alright.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Bomber. Pours brown black with a light tan head and good lacing. Aroma is strong roastiness with a definite coffee coponent. Mmmm coffee. Coffee is nice. Coffee is extremely evident in the taste as well, thankfully. Creamy, full bodied mouthfeel. Perhaps a little one dimensional with the coffee overtaking any other flavor characteristics but hell, I dont mind. This is way better than I thought itd be.

Suttree (5882) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Black. As black as black can be. Dense beige head. Aroma is very heavy on the coffee, but with a nice citrus note, as well. Flavor also has a lot of coffee, with some nice chocolate and molasses in the back ground.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Pours a very dark chestnut brown color, almost black. Thin half-cm tan head. Nutty and bitter coffee on the aroma, with a roasty undertone. The bitter coffee is more up front in the taste, but is smooth and not caustic. Decent cofee roast finish. Not the most coffee-ish or roasty of the coffee stouts, but a nice brew.
