COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Midnight black color and rich dark-roasted aroma. Specially blended hops combine with flaked unmalted barley to give this brew a full body and a dense creamy head. All elements combine in a solid, lingering finish.

(22 oz. bottle via trade with explosivebeer, thanks Brandon!) Char and grass...Pours almost inky black, actually very, very dark brown with just a wisp of brownish head that recedes to the edges. Looks much like an imp stout. Aroma of plum, char, molasses, grape and almost burnt coffee. Mouthfeel fairly smooth, light oiliness, low carbonation, actually a little loose and light-feeling. Flavor starts out heavy on char with a grassiness that detracts. As it warms the grassiness abates a bit and dark chocolate, plum/grape, coffee and char emerge. Bitterness builds toward finish and leaves a bitter coffee/choccolate aftertaste. Some alcohol presence. Quite imp stout-like overall. I didnt dig the flavor and texture so much but it does have a bit of complexity.

Bottle. Pitch black body with a medium tan head. Aroma is full of chocolate, sweet malt and roasted malt. Burned malt, light chocolate and light tobacco backs up the sweet malt in the flavour. Very nice.

Tmoney99 (10676) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2010
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured reddish black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth dry texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met

Bomber served in a Guinness pint. Great pour. Dense midnight in color with a medium sized dark tan head. Good rentention and lacing. Nose is sweet milk chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor profile matches the aroma. full-medium body, decent carbonation, thick-creamy texture, and a roasty finish. Excellent stout.

Bomber from boFNjackson - thanks, Matthew! Id been wanting to try this for a while, since Ive really enjoyed comparable regionals in Elysian Dragonstooth and Pike XXX. It didnt disappoint in the least, with a deep chewy brown pour, a fluffy layer of carbonation, and a scrumptious roasted aroma. Mouthfeel is thick like it should be, and overall its a very dry, deeply flavorful foreign stout. Nice.

Pours deep blackwith a small, creamy, off-white head that settles as a thin film. Aroma is mildly oaky, lots of roasted malts, molasses, liqourice. Medium carbonation, fine dry and mildly creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is elegantly roasted, mild piney hoppy, some coffee, molasses, mild milky chocolate sweetness. A very fine stout.
