On tap @ Twisted Pine. Pours a black appearance with a dark brown head. Anise, dark chocolate, s’more, vanilla aroma. Cocoa, roasty malty, black licorice, a bit sweet flavor. One of the best beers I’ve had from these guys.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours near black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, a nice thick chocolatey note, some light coffee/smokiness, and some caramel and dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend of it all. Smoother texture. A pretty good beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml. Opaque black with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Mild nose of blackberry, cookie dough and apple. Taste is a smooth blend of graham cracker, slightly tart blackberry, prune, caramel and dry cocoa. A hint of char and espresso on the lingering finish. Medium-heavy body is silky smooth with low-medium carbonation. No hint of the 9.1% and has a nice balance making it dangerously drinkable.

Bomber. 2012 vintage cellared for approximately 1.5 years. Sweet dark fruit aroma with dark chocolate notes. Pours black with a thin mocha head and some lacing. Starts with rich dark fruit flavors followed by a hint of booze in the chocolate notes in the smooth, creamy finish. Good stuff.

Sampler at Twisted Pine. Appearance: brown head, black color, good lacing. Aroma: floral, nut, cranberry or other berry fruit. Palate: full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Taste: nice sweetness, slight bitter finish. Overall, very good with a unique aroma. Stand out beer in my opinion.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma of roasted malts, molasses, and burnt brown sugar. Pours an opaque black wih a brown ring and no lacing. The taste is roasted malts, molasses, with hints of dark fruit, anda some alcoloh in the finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, this is a sipper - a bit more molasses flavor than I care for.
