3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours dark brown with a big, tan, frothy head-overflowd the glass on this one. Nose is very malty, some chocolate notes. Taste has full flavored chocolate, thick malts, some spiciness and a nice but not overwhelming alcohol bite. Wonderful milkshake smooth body that drinks very (and dangerously) fast. Nice effort and the best beer I’ve had from Rahr.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of markwise. Pours mahogany with tan head. The aroma has molasses, graham cracker, coffee and some chocolate malts. The taste is nice and fruity as well as rich as notes of fruitiness, spicy black strap molasses, coffee and chocolate malts all come together and slid toward the finish. This is a bit on the spicy side but trudges through with some chocolate brownies into the finish. Nice one.

6/28/11. Bomber courtesy Cavie!! Dark brown pour with reds under the light with a big, thick, frothy head that lasts and laces a ton (this is an impy stout?). Subtle aroma of caramel, chocolate, sour, and dry coffee. Sweet flavor at first with a sour twinge and then lingering dry notes. Weird.
