Taste comprises mellow dark fruits, spice, aniseed, light yeast notes, dark malts, chocolate. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close tempered with sweet and sour notes. Decent enough impy but a fair way from top draw.

bhensonb (12173) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 2, 2011
Bomber from Taylor’s Market in Sacramento, CA. Pours really brown/black with a pretty dark tan creamy/bubbly head. Damn! Aroma smells like liquorice, coffee and burnt malt. Whoosh! Full bodied. Creamy carbonation. It’s very, very smooth burnt malt with some sweet dark sugar/fruit background, but up front it’s really, really anise. Oak? Hints. This is really strong and imaginative. Or else somebody had a major accident. I have run out of things to say.

the licorice is stronger in both the aroma and flavor, the extra sweetness of the licorice brings out more of the chocolate and pushed the coffee and bitterness into the background,

licorice sweetness still in the firefront but the dark roasted malts are holding their own,
