can a beer get any darker than this? Beyond black (what ever that means). Aroma is faint for a beer that holds so much promise (bitter, chocolate, oatmeal, stout). Actually there is a hint of sweet chocolate here. The head is really not much more than a string of bubbles around the edge of the glass. The flavor, also quite mild all things considered. Some sweetness, again cocoa, then the bitterness both from hops and malt. There is a lingering prickle on my palate and roast on the back my tongue. Overall a really nice, well balanced, hearty yet subtle brew. 9.2% can’t be :-)

probstblueribbon (2858) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2011
Bomber from Bieropholie, served cool in a tulip glass. 27DE10.

App.: Deep brown-black with a decent mocha head. Aroma: Lots of big malt aromas, dark chocolate, black coffee, molasses, a bit brothy, soy sauce, rich and delicious, licorice, inky and thick, a touch green and metallic, big stuff. Palate: Medium-full body with low effervescence, smooth. Flav.: So much big malt, molasses, black coffee and dark chocolate, beautiful, licorice, a bit of toffee and caramel, really nice; off-dry with decent bitterness and a thick, oily, dark-roasted finish.

A smooth, refined, big Impy Stout.

RoscoeJackson (378) - Michigan, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Pours black, beautiful espresso head, sparse lacing. Alcohol and dark chocolate on the nose. Lots of alcohol and dark chocolate on the tongue. Very roasty and bitter. Medium mouthfeel. Drinkable but lots of alcohol present here. Surprising, especially for a 2 year old beer. Worth a try.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2010
Pours a dark black with a creamy head that falls down without leaving too much lacing. Strong smell of bittersweet chocolate along with some dark fruits. Taste is composed mostly of dark chocolate, roasted malt, and a tad bit of fruit. A bit alcoholic, but other than that it’s fairly smooth and drinks well, although not in large quantities.

BeerCast_Rich (1847) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 22, 2010
[750ml bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] Black pour, thick tan-coloured head. Strong alcohol aromas coming off this one, along with a touch of chocolate malt. Very rich, some chocolate comes through on the aftertaste, but the prime flavour is Marzipan, with some chocolate oatmeal at the edges [14112010]

Fred82 (2114) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 16, 2010
Bomber from IPB.
Appearance : Pitch black with a medium creamy expresso like head. Not much lacing.
Aroma : Chocolate and oatmeal. Bitter dark chocolate and roasted malt. A bit resinous. Some wood.
Taste : Nice chocolate and roasted malt. Finish has great notes of chocolate. Light acidic notes. Some resinous hops also. Green hops. Sticky finish. Light liquorice.
Overall : Nice chocolate notes on nose and taste. Deceptive light acidity. Feels a little bit too young maybe. Still enjoyable but it could be better.

r464 (1883) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Dark dark dark in color with a chocolate brown head. So thick and smooth, this is a stout that puts the chocolate a bit ahead of the coffee and roasted malt flavors that are usually prominent. Very full in body and worth nursing over the course of an evening.
