Bomber to taster (shared by alexsdad06). Looks good; an opaque dark cola with thin beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; dark malt, molasses, maple syrup, and mild bourbon. Tastes like it smells with a solid albeit slightly thin mouthfeel. Good beer!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber of 2013 Vintage. Motor oil pour with dark mocha foam. Strong notes of bittersweet chocolate, whiskey, dark sugars and maple syrup in the aroma. Taste starts with a heavy dose of dark chocolate, molasses and bourbon along with some black cherry, espresso, licorice and charred roasted malt in the finish. Mouthfeel is thick, syrupy and full-bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, a top notch Imperial Stout much enhanced by the barrel-aging.

Bottle @ Steve’s house. Rating #7,000. Pours a black appearance with a thin dark brown head. Rich bourbon, dark chocolate, toffee, chewy caramel, fairly spicy, delicious aroma. A bit thick and goopy, light raisin, massive dark chocolate, molasses, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, vanilla, fuck yeah flavor. Perfect beer for #7,000. XO CHITL.

Awesome Beer. Tastes like a good imperial stout should. This one definitely goes to my top five. Available at Total Wine and More in Bellevue, WA. Limited to 1 per customer, so bring a friend who doesn’t like stouts.

Hela helvete! Världsklass! Krämig och fin. Bourbonfat känns det som. Precis lagom dessutom. Drag av champinjoner i doften. Får avsluta en episk provning med några riktiga tungviktare

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to marine1977. Pours like straight used motor oil. A dark brown head forms and quickly disburses. Aroma of sweet chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, some dark fruits, caramel. Taste is sweet with a roasted dry finish. Very smooth. Some oak characteristic in the end of the taste. Extremely oily feel. Delicious stuff.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clean and viscous oily black pour with one finger of creamy burnt wood brown head. Rich nose, some oxidized black malt and lots of rich chocolate. Super chocolatey with notes of dark fruit and molasses. Wonderful aroma. Very rich and clean in the mouth. Lots of chocolate and molasses with a very low bitterness/acidity from the dark grain. Dark fruit skins and burnt sugar with some molasses and mapley notes. Full and rich body with a moderate showing of alcohol. Delicious.

Bottle @ Dean’s Birthday tasting, courtesy of kermis, big thnx! Massive beer, pours pitch black with a very dark brown head on top. Aroma of smoke, ashes, dark chocolate, molasses and licorice. Very sweet flavor, dark chocolate and molasses return heavily in the flavor. Very intense, big mouthfeel (that’s what she said). Epic brew. All hail the Berserker!
