BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Pitch black with smallish tan head that sticks around, but doesnít lace much. Smells pretty hot and boozy right now. I get mostly alcohol, circus peanuts and gumdrops with some dark chocolate and espresso in there also. Hot and hoppy on the palate, almost burns on the finish. Boozy and bitter with hint of chocolate. Probably be really good with time - right now, kinda tough. 8/16/13

TheGB (561) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Pours black with a thin brown head. Sweet aroma of malt and tootsie rolls? Taste of pecans, malt and raisins. Pretty different and interesting, but kinda sweet.

gorditoabd (629) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Bomber from Bev4Less. Pours very dark black, almost no foam, literally, it looks syrupy in the glass. No bubbles. Nothing. Aroma is subdued and faint of dark malt. Not surprisingly the taste is all dark fruit, a touch of wheat (must be midnight wheat) and a little bit of sweet chocolate and anise. Itís good, complex, and boozy as all get out. And, at the same time, I am underwhelmed. Maybe itís just me.

Guerde (1212) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 15, 2013
(bomber from Sparky, thanks E!) Pours a jet black color with a large dark tan head that resembles espresso crema. Aromaís fairly subdued right off the bat, but whatís there is really nice, with a good combo. of chocolate, roasted nuts, bourbon, and rye really blending together into something nice. Smells breakfast-like. Gets richer, roastier, and spicier as it warms. Barrel shining through. The flavor is pretty straightforward imperial stout, with some dark chocolate, roasted malt, and spicy rye, but the finish is where this beer really shines as it goes through several stages and lasts very long. The finish begins with a sharp kick of spicy rye, which meanders along snap pea territory, but doesnít quite get there. Following that is peanut brittle, espresso, and dark chocolate. The third stage is a heat from the booze content welling up in the back of your throat, but itís subtle and warm so it doesnít detract from the finish. The final stage is a lingering flavor of roasted nuts (pecans) with some barrel as well. This final stage lasts the longest and is quite pleasant. The mouthfeel is super smooth and slick, and the carbonation is almost cask-esque. Overall this is an excellent beer that I really didnít expect to like this much. Well done.

Ericular (793) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Pours an opaque black with healthy, chocolate brown head and great lacing. This beer looks substantial. Aroma is vinous and boozy with nutty vanilla, a little oak - sweet overall. Taste is a great sweet boozy flavor, red wine vinous balanced with bourbon warmth, with a noticeable spicier malt from the rye. This would probably smooth out with age. Full bodied with a strong kick going down, understandably sharp from being bottled only six weeks ago. Bitter cocoa powder comes in the aftertaste, with the 13% showing in the end. Palate is thick and oily, drying out quite a bit in the end. Overall this is good, but would likely age very well.

ccex (1057) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Bomber pours an opaque dark brown with small mocha head and practically no lacing. Aroma has pecans, oak, caramel, rtoasted malts, and a bit of dark fruit. I missed the rye. Taste is sweet and slightly boozy. Body is full with moderate carbonation. This is a great imperial stout which I hope I see again.

Bomber. Near black with mocha head. Butterscotch, oak, bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, and alcohol. Dry bitterness with an alcohol warmth. Heavy body with a syrupy feel.

Ed5388 (2515) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2013
22oz bomber. Pours a deep black color with a thin mocha colored head that settles to nothing. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, burnt toast, and light bourbon notes. Taste of oak, vanilla, a subtle nuttiness, Carmel and roasted malts, and some piney bitterness in the finish.

Benzai (9928) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2013
Sampled from bottle @ RBBSG II. Opaque pitch black color, small to medium sized brown head. Smell and taste malts, roastyness, alcohol, lightly wood and something I canít quite put my finger on. Full body, medium to full carbonation.
