4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Malty, caramel flavors, not much alcohol roughness, wouldn’t know it is 9%. Looks pretty damn good in the glass by the way.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Plummy and light licorice. Not astringent, even at 9 percent. A balanced winter warmer, and it’s ruby red in the glass -- very inviting. There’s a little pine tar bitterness underneath the sweet palate.

Dark copper , almost brown in color , thin off-white head. Caramel , plums in sweet aroma with hint of alcohol. Sweet , caramel taste , with light, roasted note in the end. Sweetness balanced by moderate bitterness in the end.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black oil pour. Aroma of dark malts, caramel, brown sugar, wet earth. Flavors of plums, vegetable, toffee, cardboard. Watery, boozy finish. This is a mess of what seems like a... imp black lager.. ale.. porter..malt liquor.. whatever sticks. I really liked the imp stout but this is just a puzzle.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle.
Clear dark mahogany, thin head above lively carbonation. Decent lace.
Aroma is caramel, prune, alcohol.
Flavor is sweet, I was expecting more hops. What I got was caramel, dark fruit, alcohol burn on the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Clear amber. Aroma of wet caramel malt, straw. Taste is sweet and soft bitterness. Biscuity stickiness/chewiness, with a late medium-low dry finish from a low carbonation ale. Quite reminiscent of an above average English style ale.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is sweet and boozy with notes of grass, earth and tree bark. Pours out a great dark amber color with an off white medium sized head. Tastes sweeter than I expected up front but that soon gets taken over by medium intensity hops that last well into your next sip. Some booze burn; actually a little more than I like. Palate is lacking. Surprisingly watery. Considering the price ($3.99) and the ABV, I enjoyed it. Simply put, it's a strong cheap drinkable beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quite a strong ale. Heavy on the caramel, a little roasty even. This thing is pretty sweet and altogether a nice experience. Serving size 22oz bomber.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bomber to a tulip. Unexpected dark pour with loads of malt and caramel on the nose. Taste is very malty with a carmel sweetness upfront that finishes pretty clean with a slight trace of hops.
