3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from timfoolery. It’s a wild pour. One inch of dark brown and 4+ fingers of creamy/foamy tan head. Aroma through that head is tuff, but there’s a lot of heavy dark burnt malt down below. Med body or better. Flavor is fairly smooth burnt malt with some aspects that could be bourbon or celery. Odd, but I could call it either way. There’s some chocolate, and it’s rather ashy, but it’s dry, seemingly astringent, and there’s a lot of hop bitter. Pardon while I attend to the foam creeping from the bottle. Damn nice drink. Much more flavor than many stouts. As flavorful as an IS, but in a very different, but similar, way.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bomber from trade. I rarely say this about stouts, but I did not like at all. Not much aroma - roast and faint coffee. Dark pour. Taste and palate disappoint. Thin watery over burnt malt with burnt coffee added for fun. No

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Carolina’s Vineyards & Hops. Dark brown pour. Oddly off-balanced with some stale coffee notes getting in the way of any chocolate, roast, or earthiness that may be going on. Slightly stale tasting. Couldn’t put my finger on it.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some smokiness, hints of chocolate and coffee, and light dough. Flavor the same with an average texture. A decent stout.

Bottle: Poured a black in color with a brown head. Aroma was sweet chocolate. Taste is similar with chocolate, the hops did not come through the sweetness, but gave a balance to the malts.
