On tap @ The Woods. Pours inky brownish black with thin off white head. Aroma is dark earthy roasty malt with faint floral hops. Taste is big charred super dark malt with hints of dark chocolate. Nice earthy hops on the finish, but I’d honestly pin this as more of a strong porter than CDA. Either way, delicious.

umich03jm (1571) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Bomber from trade with michaelinwa. Pours opaque black with a very small head that fades very quickly. Aromas are medium roasted coffee and nuts with some light pine and grapefruit. Taste is ok. Bitter coffee and chocolate, nuts, and some light hop taste. Finish is pretty bitter. Thin body and slightly chalky mouthfeel. Overall, it drinks surprisingly easy for 8.4% but the flavors are muted and boring.

WarChef1 (23) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Pours nice and dark. quite stout like. Nice tight foamy head with good lacing. Smells of roasted coffee, chocolate and citrusy hops. Roast Malt character is present in nose as well. Tastes sweet and rich then hops kick in to balance out. Medium to light body. was expecting a little more from the appearance. Texture a little thin with some creaminess present. Fizzy. Finish is balanced with nice notes of coffee and citrus with medium length.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2013 4 jan 2013, bottle. Dark brown. Nose is bitter lemon hops and the faintest of dark chocolate. Thin. Thin body and foamy/fizzy. Slightly fizzy, some faint coffee, some caramel malt. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mikedR (923) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Nice stout-like dark ale. Less malty flavors than you'd see a stout, and more hoppy flavors instead. Very robust flavor, with lingering bitterness. Solid! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber poured a clear reddi brown with a small lasting tan head. Aromas of cocoa, earthiness, light roastiness and light citrus. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of cocoa, roastiness, light earthiness and a hint of citrus with a smooth dry lightly bitter lingering cocoa finish.

got a bomber. very foamy head, dark but not pitch black. bites your tongue at the start and mellows out in the finish. could taste chocolate as well as citrus from the hops
