Had side by side with the regular and this one blew it away. Rich creamy body. Oak is subtle but definitely itís own aspect of the flavor profile. Nice roasted coffee notes. Some bitter chocolate. Excellent brew.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at world of beer in Denver. Pours pitch black with a small white head. The aroma has very little to speak of. I asked my wife to smell to make sure Iím not off. The taste has a lot of oak, vanilla, roasted malt, chocolate, a bit sweet. Not a bad brew by any means but not exceptional either.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bomber from HEB Pin Oak in Katy, TX. Poured into a teku glass. Appearance is dark black with thin white slightly tan head. Aroma of heavy booze and smoked malt. Taste dominated by booze of the first note then dissapates into a intertwined oak and smoked malt notes finishes boozy. I would imagine this would age gracefully.
