4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Rayans shared with ck1. Pours black with a small head. Aroma is a nice grassy chocolate. Huge Alpha Klaus memory from this. Taste is of sweet chococaramel, grassy hops, and a bit of alcohol. Medium to full bodied. Sweet and grassy/grainy. Not real deep, but tasty. A surprise, although Floyds always has such nice stuff - just had no expectations for this. One to have again says ck1. 15 also.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep dark black color with no head. Nose is subtle coffee and actually hoppy ! An even mixture of malt and hops, not your typical stout. Very drinkable and complex. Finishes with some citrus notes and bitterly so. A very different stout . Quaff score 7 / 10

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Almost Black. Medium creamy, lasting beige head. Aroma is quite hoppy, some sweetness,light roastiness, some chocolate. Flavor follows but not nearly as bold. Medium to full body. Smooth, soft, and creamy. Long bitter finish. Quite hoppy. Agree its more of a black ipa than anything.

Tap. Dark black pour, nice lacing and a slightly hoppy roasted malt aroma. Flavor is similar to the aroma; bitter peppery orange nicely melded with dark malt and finished a bit dry/hoppy. Really enjoyable.

Bomber. Dark brown pour with a nice tan head. Aroma is chocolate, slight roast, coffee. Flavor is nicely balanced, mild, chocolatey, but not bitter at all. Actually could have used a bit of punching up. Pretty mild, but tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at Ale Alpharetta. Pours black with frothy beige head. Nose was roast, earth and pine. Taste was big chocolate malts, roast, piney hops, coffee. Without knowing what this beer was I assumed it was a slightly faded black ipa as there was still a nice bitterness but the assertive hops had faded slightly. Overall quite nice but perhaps a tad thin (yet creamy) for a stout.
