A very nice compendium of hops, malt, coffee, chocolate and alcohol. If I had one criticism, it would be that the finish was a little too sharp, but that could just be me at this particular tasting. Will definitely try this again.

Bomber from that liquor store in Fort Collins. Pours pretty near black with a tall tan head. At first the nose seems hot, but evens out nicely after a minute. I think some of that sharpness is the assertive hoppiness too. We got soy sauce, brownies, pine and cacao in the aroma. Good full body carries a balance of bittersweet and roasty malts with citrusy and piney hops peeking out. Very enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 mL bottle. Black pour, with a huge, light brown color, and great lacing. The aroma is bittersweet chocolates, molasses, cinnamon, pumpernickel, some light earthiness and just a touch of salt. Sweet flavor, with a slight bitterness from the roasted malts. Medium to heavy body, chalky, but slick, with a relatively clean finish. Overall, this is a nice stout, but nothing too special.
