Good aroma of coffee chocolate roasts. Somewhat dark for style. Mouthfeel is full, almost chewy. Taste is well balanced and pleasant, though somewhat full for ABV.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber compliments of TJ. Pitch black pour into a shaker glass (held up to the window & no light shown through). Thick, fizzy light brown head stood tall for a minute or so before I could even get in close enough for a whiff. Giant roasted (almost burnt) malt aroma with some hints of dark chocolate & slightly yeasty brown bread. Flavor of bitter coffee and cacao nibs. Ashy bitter finish. Not unpleasant, but not as smooth as I had hoped for. Seems like it should be beefier than a mere 5.7% abv.

Black body with a lasting off white head. Smells of pear and chocolate. Flavor is a lot of roast with a unsweet cocoa flavor. I personally like a less roasty more chocolate sweet flavor. A bit thin on the body. A bit of banana and plum linger with the dry cocoa.
