Bottle from Community Food Co-op - N Forest St, Bellingham, WA
Black color, with medium sized head, quickly reducing. Mild aroma of roasted malts, simple. The roasted malt flavor is strong, a bit ashy, and it also has a strong bread presence; quite strong bitterness; the body is slimmer than expected, and the mouthfeel is quite dry; the alcohol is well managed. Eventually there is some chocolate.
Not very exciting, but still a good beer.

Bottle, 22oz. An almost black one, topped by a finger thick light beige head. The aroma is on the malty side, molasses, roasted, almost burnt malts and some coffee and notes of dried fruits. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, but I find the beer too sweet. Some faint notes of cooked vegetables too. Full body with very soft carbonation and some alcohol warmth. Lasting sweet and roasted finish. Sure a nice one, but not impressive. 130805

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours very dark brown with a fizzy dark tan head. Aromas of burnt malt, treacle and anise. Sweetish. Near full bodied. Fizzy carb. Flavor is pretty anise, there’s treacle, and I think a fair dose of chocolate, all backed by not quite smooth burnt malt. It’s not dry by me, but it’s finishing fairly bitter. Finally it all smooths out into a fairly soft bitter finish. Lots of taste in this.

Decent fruity sweetness, hints of burnt sugar, and chocolate. As with the nose, a touch of Worcestershire. Coffee, light ash, and licorice round it out.

GT2 (8159) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 1, 2013
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. Inkier black pour, medium mocha foam with good webby lacing. Purple soda, grape Fanta nose. Taste is purple drank. Bitter chocolate, tar. Not bad. Long bitter chocolate finish. Loved by my friends. A lot of the beers on tap tonight had this grape soda flavor, perhaps from unclean tap lines.
