4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Stout glass. Pours a very thick, BLACK opaque with a seriously dark brown head. Wow. Aroma is complex with coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, anise, and dark fruits. The taste is primarily coffee, dark chocolate, heavily roasted malts, and slight anise. The mouth is very thick with a great dry, bitter finish. Interesting style but very very good by Rogue.

This is among the blackest beers I have consumed. Even the head is a chocolate color. The aroma is non-descript, not giving many clues to the body which will pass across the tongue. This is a big beer, very sessionable.
