3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Very dark brown pour with an amber hue, yellow-brown head. Boozy vanilla and coconut on the nose, with some malt and dark fruits as well. Flavour is much of the same, and very pleasant. A bit boozy for my tastes; it probably should have aged a bit more.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Still quite sweet w/ the high alcohol content, this tastes of chocolate, cherry, bourbon and even a bit of coconut.... delicious and very appropriate for dessert/late night food pairings. Scored this bottle at a "Yankee Swap" this past Xmas (with help from the Wifey), and hope I can find another one someday, as I just couldnt stop myself from opening it a bit early (2013 edition).

Tap in Atlanta, Ga
Can smell the lactose, sweet malty. Smells like ice cream float with a shot of bourbon. Silky smooth mouth feel with hints of coffee, toffee, bourbon. Very easy to drink, scary for a 10% abv.

Bomber - Vintage 2014. Near black in color with a small frothy tan head. Bourbon, oak and vanilla cream aroma. Heavy roasted flavor with dark chocolate, vanilla ice cream, some ripe fruit and a bourbon finish. Creamy texture and well carbonated. Goes down way too smooth for 11% abv. Great tasting stout!

On tap at Cafe Hollander. Very dark pour, dense tan head with nice lacing. A very creamy, smooth beer with lots of oak mixed in with roast flavors. Generally sweet, but it dries out in the end with just a hint of hop finish. Nice.
