Thanks to jjfoodie for sharing this bottle. The beer pours black with a tan head. The beer has red highlights. The aroma is roasted malt with some smoke and teriyaki sauce. The flavor is roasted malt, soy and teriyaki sauces as well as some alcohol and chocolate. Thick mouthfeel and low carbonation.

Pours a very dark brown, almost black color with dark ruby/mahogany edges when held to a light source. Completely opaque but this beer is pretty much still with very little head that immediately dissipates. No lacing at all. Deep roasted chocolate malt aroma with hints of roasted coffee, silky bitter dark chocolate, toffee, oatmeal, nut, coffee and espresso bean. Thereís a slight alcohol presence in the nose along with some very faint earthy hops. Chewy, viscous full body with a lot of roasted malt character. Thereís a nice silky dark chocolate malt flavor that is slightly bitter accompanied by a strong roasted malt/espresso bean presence. Iím also picking up some oatmeal, toffee, nut and surprisingly, a nice dry bitter hop presence in the finish. There is some slight alcohol warmth but overall the ABV of this beer is excellently masked making it deceptively drinkable. I never would have guessed that this beer was 13%. Complex and flavorful interpretation of the style.

12oz bottle thanks to ryan, rated 3/21/10. Pour is thick, but itís a bit translucent around the edges without much head. Smells roasty and sweet, but a bit boozy, the alcohol comes through too much. Taste has has roasty coffee, but again, a bit boozy and a little too sweet. Finish is bitter but a bit too thin in the mouth.

Many thanks to Steve for the í09 bomber! Poured deep brown with iced tea highlights and a short cap of tan head. The aroma picked up roasted bakerís chocolate, slightly darker chocolates, and coffee with accents of vanilla bean and treacle.. seemed to sweeten up as warmed up, masking the alcohol a bit. The flavor opened with coffee and molasses sweetness, picking up dark chocolates across the middle.. dry-roasted, ground coffee bitterness, grassy notes, and peppery alcohol warmth around.. syrupy molasses and almost cleanser-like bitterness showed as it warmed.. long, well-roasted, but mostly sweet finish with a peppery alcohol kicker. Medium-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. the hops were on the soapy side and a bit sharp at times.. warming, memorable finish. This was a very good beer that Iíll get absolutely wrecked by if I ever find it on tap!

Bomber bottle from Michigan Brewing Pub in Webberville: pours black with no head at all, just a few fine bubbles surface around the edges, a small ring of light tan bubbles formed in the glass, this beer is a dark brown-black that is a dark ruby when held up to a light, aromas of dark roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate, hints of licorice and soy sauce, fragrances of chocolate cake, caramel, flavors of dark roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and intense or burnt caramel, there is some sweetness in this brew, some hop and alcohol bite felt on the tongue, and some taste of dark grains to, 12% alc. is hidden well in this drink, mouth feel is a little thin for an Impy, gave some warmth on the palate, the carbonation is a little low to, not a bad Imperial Stout but not a great one either.
