650ml bomber from 99 Bottles in Federal Way, WA pours deep black color with a 2 finger creamy beige head with good retention and leaving some decent lacing. Aroma is chocolate and coffee with roasted barley and some light hops. Taste is chocolate malty sweetness with a roasted barley and coffee bitterness with some hops detectable in the finish. Medium bodied with light carbonation. A rather enjoyable brew with well balanced body and flavors.

Bottle: Dark, jet black with a tan head. Sweet aromas of malts, tanginess, and cardboard. Flavors of chocolate malt with a full body and thin aftertaste. A bitter trailer for the finish which follows sweetness, which I appreciate.

Nice, roasted, parched soy nut aroma, lightly sweet. Inky, good painted bomber. Nicely bitter - a good mix of roast and hops. Strongly bitter coffee aftertaste. Slightly heavy body. Mostly dry, a little black pepper, very slightly herbal, bitter cocoa. Thanks to Triock for hauling this back from his northwest vacation and sharing with the office.
