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. Itís 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.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06.
Poured clear dark brown color with medium brown frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy roasted chocolate malt, woody and tobacco aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration to long duration.
My expectations where met with a very good stout.

Bottle @ OzíníNZ tasting 2011.
Completely black with a small, creamy, beige head. Aroma has light milk, chocolate, a bit of liqourice, mild cold coffee. Lowish carbonation, soft and velvety creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet (indeed very sweet), roasted malts, milky chocolate. Light dry. Very lovely, but sure could use some bitterness to balance the sweetness.

Bottle... Backusís Backdoor Bash Ď08... This beer rocks!... Pours pitch black and sits, menacingly, in my glass. Small, creamy, well-tanned head. Decent retention. Chocolaty, roasted nut aroma. Full-bodied with a velvety/silky mouthfeel and supple carbonation. Sweet, chocolaty and very lightly acrid. Lengthy, pleasantly sweet finish. Thanks to dchmela for sharing the bottle!
