4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
2007 bomber for Rating #6100. Poured highly-viscous deep brown with a very dark tan head. The aroma picked up toasted cocoa and maple with lovely sweet, buttery vanilla and charred oak accents.. tobacco and peppery alcohol warmth on the back.. age softened the edges very nicely. The flavor found blended chocolates, espresso, and maple on the sweet, well-roasted core.. dry oak, tobacco, and deep vanilla bean character cut through well.. long, roasty, complex finish. Heavy-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. thick and coating.. excellent beer!

Bomber shared by Bvery, thanks buddy! Dark black pour, thick, dark brown head. Nice sweet vanilla and molasses aroma. Taste is so well balanced, sweet and boozy. Amazing stuff!

Bomber. One of the darkest densest pours I’ve ever seen. Molasses, ash, slight booze, maple syrup, hint of wood. Awesome.

Smells of malted milk balls (Whoppers) and slightly of sour milk. Tastes like it smells. Mouthfeel is thin to oily with a medium body. Maybe this bottle went bad or was somehow infected, because I’d heard praise of this beer that does not comport with my experience.

This is really good but it’s not blowing me away. Very rich and powerful. Yet smooth and drinkable.
