COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flavors of dark chocolate and roasted malts are complemented by generous quantities of Northwest hops to give this dry stout an assertive but balanced profile. A traditional yeast strain lends further complexity to this rich dark brew.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours black with a 4 finger tan head. Nice burnt/toast malt aroma. Maybe some hop bitter? Full bodied with very foamy carbonation. Smooth. Flavor is very dark chocolate with burnt malt for bitter. Hop? Maybe. It’s just very, very flavorful. Finish is towards dry with chocolate notes. Delicious.

Nice cocoa aroma with hints of black olives. Flavor: this has some bugs in it - probably lacto - quite lemony tart. Really unfortunate, as the nose had some promise.

hopdog (8933) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2009
22oz bottle. Poured a medium to deeper brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of burnt malts, roasty, some chocolate, and a little earthy. Tastes of the same roastiness, lighter coffee, earthy, and chocolate. I would say the roastiness and burnt quality dominate.

Bomber thanks to Brandon! Poured crystal-clear medium-dark brown with a good lookin’ cap of tan head. The aroma picked up moderately-roasted black patent and dark chocolate maltage paired with dry earthy accents.. I couldn’t really tell what hops they put in here, but they gave a nice bright contrast to the dark malts. The flavor found well-roasted black patent primarily with dark chocolate providing more bitterness and character on the edges.. a touch of earth and tar around.. finished very dry and a touch grainy. Medium-bodied with average carbonation on the palate.. very dry.. not great, but it certainly didn’t fail in any department.
