4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber shared at the 18th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering. This was a killer extra from Ghostface. Thanks! Pours a clear red-brown color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of chocolate, raisin and toasted malts. The taste is raisin, chocolate, nuts and bitter hops. Medium bodied, creamy, smooth, average carbonation, low bitterness. Very nice beer, and not just because it has my name on it...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bomber. Poured deep brown with a well-retained beige head. The aroma picked up sweet vanilla and butterscotch upfront, with vinous notes and date sweetness behind.. light-moderate roast, and a lot of sweetness.. more of a nice brown ale than a Baltic Porter. The flavor found sweet, lightly-roasted black patent and smoky malts at the core, with light mocha bitterness and more smoky notes around.. dry, scratchy, roasty finish. Medium-bodied at most on the palate.. seemed roastier as it warmed up.. not a great Baltic Porter, but an easy-drinkin’ brew.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle: Pours a mostly opaque black with a spotty-lacing beige head. Has a rich sweet dark caramel nose with some light roast, chocolate and plum notes. Starts with good fullness and chewy sweet dark malt with some dark fruity complexity and mild piny hop flavor and bitter balance. Finishes slightly drier, but still semi-sweet, with good dark chocolate character. True to style and quite enjoyable.
