yngwie (16529) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 20, 2013
Bottle, 22oz, from trade with Papsoe. A dark brown beer, lightly unclear and topped by a minimal sized off-white head. Lightly smoked, ham-like flavor with toffee and some vinous notes. Chocolate too. The flavor has some sweetness, but itís mostly dryish. Piney hops, some grassy notes and a hint of orange peel too. Lasting finish with lots of chocolate, some coffee and ham, and a little touch of bitterness and a solid dose of pine cones. Not your average black IPA, but nice anyway. 130420

bhensonb (14177) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Bomber from Half Time. Pours very black with a transient tan head. Aroma of dark burnt malt, chocolate and something like herbal hop. And coffee? Full bodied. Flavor is very chocolate, hints of burnt malt, more than hints of coffee, and a fair amount of varying hop. Varying meaning I canít tell what it is. Seems noble/herbal, but thereís so much dark flavor itís hard to break this stuff down. Thereís a barley wine aspect. Thereís an IS aspect. Itís finishing burnt, chocolate, dry and pretty hoppy. Thereís just way too much going on with this. Not that thatís a bad thing.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear dark brown color with a minimal frothy off-white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate earthy hop and toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded.
