COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Is a heavenly marriage of an Irish-style dry stout and an Oatmeal stout. By complimenting the dominant roasted barley accents of a dry stout with the unmistakably rich and silky finish that only oatmeal can provide.

pours black with tan head. Roasted malts, coffee, and dark chocolate make up the aroma. Tastes is very roasty, some coffee but not alot of depth. Medium low mouthfeel, some bitterness in the finish. Not a bad stout but not impressive either

Nice sweet vanilla aroma. But the taste was not great. Roasty but thin and not a lot of flavour.

Pretty average stout. aromas of roasted malt. Some nice fruitiness. Pretty thin palate. Toasty malts... some sour berry.. But watery. Not great.

WheatKing (1162) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
Bomber. Can’t believe this is my first by Nelson. Very dark brown, beige dissipating head. Nose is smoke, roast, coffee. Flavour is smoke, black coffee, oats, almost acrid. Palate is very thin, especially considering the oats. Carbonation is very low. I ALMOST really liked this one, but fell flat in a couple of ways.

Pours nicely, smooth drinking, not overly sweet, low salt. Hints of vanilla and smoke flavours. Overall enjoyable and unobjectionable, but without a distinct character that would have me seek it out.

TheRatKing (84) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle to a tulip, nice black beer with a fairly rich off-white head. Not detecting much of anything in the way of nose, but the flavour really does make up for it; quite rich on the tongue, bitter coffee backed up by sweet chocolate, comfortable hops on the way down. A very nice oatmeal stout.

Bottle. Pours very dark near black with small offwhite head. Aroma of malt and tastes roasted and coffee like flavours.

Lagerboy (1068) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2013
Bomber. Clear deep dark amber, foamy tan head settles and mostly lasts. Rich sweet aroma of chocolate and dark toasty malt. In contrast the first sip is sharp bitter coffee bean, followed by bittersweet dark roasted chocolate malts, some nuttiness. Soft smooth carbonation, medium-full body, moderately hopped. Clean coffee finish. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)
