Pours dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma has roasty malts and a touch of molasses. Flavor follows suit and adds some mild vanilla...one dimensional but decent. Mouthfeel is light yet creamy with a slightly roasty finish.

Appearance- Clear cola brown with a thick fizzy tan head, average lasting and lace.
Aroma- Nothing much to put here, hardly any aroma at all.
Flavor- Sweet, roasted malts, silky, not getting much hops or molasses at all. Rather plain.

Big bottle split with brother and father. Aroma is vanilla bean, some molasses, dark fruits, and dark chocolate. Pours dark brown and thin with a small wispy white head. Taste follows suit with dark fruits, mince meat, vanilla, and chocolate. Very thin mouthfeel is a little distracting but I definitely enjoyed the flavor profile. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Nose is roasty porter with very faint chocolate and a touch more coffee, nice woody/bitter hops to round out. Pours dark brown with ruby hues and a dense tan head. Taste sweet with strong vanilla and some other spicing, light earth with average malt and faint fruit. Chocolate and coffee are way backed off; the vanilla is the keystone ingredient here. Fullish body and somewhat enjoyable.
