On tap at the brewpub. This was served way to cold. At first there was no aroma or flavor. Took about 5 minutes of warming it up with my hands then it changed into a different beer
Black with a medium sized tan head and lots of lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, milk chocolate and coffee. Flavors of roasted malts, coffee and rich dark chocolate
Very nice after warmed up.

Bomber. Pours a pure black color with a large beige almost brown head. A light fruity nose with cocoa. The flavor is great: dark fruit, ash, cocoa, a bit of anise and licorice, bitter metallic roast. Great brew. More milky oats and patent than a huge hot Impy. Smooth.

Four packs are now available at the local grocery store- perfect for "Walking Dead" Sunday ;) Like this one because even though it is high ABV and IBU's you wouldn't know it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Black coffee pour with an inch of mocha foam. Aroma is a dark chocolate, roasted malt and brown sugar blend. Taste opens up with a shot of bittersweet chocolate, coffee and molasses along with some charred malt, dark fruit and piney hops bitterness at the end. The body is thick and creamy with significant carbonation and more roasted malt and chocolate in the finish. A bit boozy and bitter but solid nonetheless.
