3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Archer Liquors. Pours quite black with a 2-finger tan head. It has a sweetish aroma of darkly toasted malt. Medum body with creamy carbonation that bites just a bit. Flavor is toasted malt with dark fruits and some chocolate. Dark fruit aspect matches the "Baltic" descriptor. Finishes a bit burnt, slightly bitter and rather balanced by the dark fruit. It’s a really flavorful stout, and not excessively sweet. Really a lot going on in this one. Highly recommended.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black with a disappearing off-white head. Weak aroma of malt, chocolate and licorice. Sweet malty flavour with chocolate and a roasted note. Somewhat disappointing considering the strength and the brewery.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The pour is a deep, dark brown color (almost black) with a modest tan head.
S: This is a fairly roast and coffee forward beer with some background notes of chocolate, cream, and a slight sweetness.
T: The sweetness was nowhere near as pronounced in the flavor as I’m accustomed to with milk stouts. That said, there were still some nice coffee, roasted malt, and mild cream flavors.
M: The body is medium with a a fairly conservative level of carbonation.
D: While not as sweet as many other examples of the style, I enjoyed the roasted and coffee notes this beer provided. The more milk stouts I drink, the more I enjoy them.
