4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Discount. Pours an opaque black with a chocolate milk head. Nice sticky lacing. Aroma has baker’s chocolate, licorice and chocolate liqueur. Taste is of sweet brown sugar, expresso, bittersweet chocolate and lactose. Slightly rough and hints of alcohol. Nice combination of bitter and sweet after beginning more like a sweet stout. Solid base. Finishes with some length, and very bittersweet. A very, very nice roasty chocolatey stout with a lot of strength.

Some mellow smoke. Palate is full and relatively smooth, highish carbonation Lingering bitter roast with sweet caramel. Maybe a litle rough round the edges. Good boost.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitch black with a small, creamy, cappuccino head. Good retention. The nose is a marriage of fudge and toasted tree nuts – almonds and pistachios. Full-bodied with medium carbonation. The flavor furnishes a boatload of roasty bitterness flanked by lighter, sweet notes of caramel and chocolate.
