3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2013 One of southern tiers best. Poured a nice black color with no light. Had a nice 1 finger, brown sugar head. Aroma was dominated by cocoa nibs and some hints of vanilla. On the palate you are hit with bitter chocolate, then in the middle of the palate is mellows out before hitting hard on the finish with dark chocolate. Mouthfeel nears heavy with nice carbonation. A solid overall nice winter stout.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Captain Jack’s in Bismarck. Appearance: slight tan head, black color, opaque, light lacing, head does not last. Aroma: licorice, tons of chocolate, light grass. Palate: full body, soft carbonation, alcohol thinness, bitter finish, super smooth, oily texture. Taste: sweet chocolate with notes of licorice on into a light bitterness from chocolate, but sweetness lingers and stays in aftertaste. Overall, amazing, can not believe how well this lived up to the hype. Amazing beer, sooo smooth.
