On tap, December 2014. Rich dark appearance with creamy tan head. Chocolate bomb with slight hint of hazelnut and coffee. Hides the 10% alcohol well. Another winner from Southern Tier. Delicious!

22oz bottle poured into glass. Aroma is obvious...heavy malts and chocolate. Pours a dark brownish black with almost no head to it. Pretty smooth up front with a creamy mouthfeel heavy dark chocolates and malts present. Finishes a little bitter from the chocolate essence.

Pours a dark brown with a quickly-dissipating tan head. Aroma is delicious, sweet chocolate. Flavor is sweet chocolate, balanced with a bittersweet finish. I love good chocolate beers and this one is fantastic.

Excellent aroma and appearance. Delicious chocolate taste and very smooth to drink. Wouldn't expect a chocolate beer to be so good.

Bottle 2013. This is the most ridiculously chocolate stout I’ve ever tasted. After cellaring for a while, the hops are gone and your left with a brew that is literally liquid chocolate: smooth, sweet, delicious.... The mouth feel is round and smooth... chocolate truffle...yum...

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
BOD 9/19/14. Pours dark as a starless night. Above average head volume, average lacing and retention. Very rich nose of milk chocolate with chocolate malt notes underneath. Full bodied with a rich creamy texture. Slightly above average carbonation with a touch of effervescence in the middle and a reasonable burst for this viscosity on the finish. The very rich taste profile is intense, not very complex but well balanced. It begins with a sweet milk chocolate explosion that slowly fades into a mild bitterness in the middle. The bitterness is a blend of roast and hops. As it begins, the chocolate malt notes of the nose are evident. The finish leaves a nice moderate alcohol burn at the back of the throat. As the chocolate and bitterness fade, a light grain alcohol flavor emerges.

Bomber opened on Thanksgiving 2014....bottled 2010 so most of hoppy edge should be gone....think it is.
Nose is chocolate x 4.....wow. Some malted milk / malt edge to it but almost all chocolate....probably added 2 pounds sniffing it. Wonderful.
Taste while still pretty cold is the same...chocolate with, what is that, vanilla? edge...
Chocolate lingers....and lingers....excellent!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black body with a light brown head. Aroma is a complete chocolate bomb, smells like ST dissolved chocolate brownies in a stout. Taste is also a ton of chocolate, with light notes of roast, burnt sugars and molasses. I personally think the chocolate was a bit overdone in this- I would have liked this to be more roasty.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours pitch black with khaki colored head. Aroma of chocolate vanilla and coffee. Taste of chocolate and coffee with just a hint of smoke. Medium palate. Overall another solid beer from southern tier.
