4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Taylor’s Market in Sacramento, CA. Pours black or a dark ruddy brown (the stream) with a creamy 3 finger darkish tan head. Aromas of floral and resin. Lush and mellow. Full bodied with creamy carb. It is soft and lush, but the flavor adds a little citrus. Then the malt comes in mildly chocolate and very dark and bitter on its own. I’m not finding a trace of heat. This is just brilliantly put together. Did I mention it has a lush aroma and feel?

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Poured black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and hop aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a very good beer and hides the alcohol well.
