"A nice brown/porter looking brew that is just a tiny bit behind the really awesome spiced stouts if you will (ie-chocolate sombrero). Pecans are at once a nice touch and a deterrent, causing the flavor to be a touch too sweet. Chili and cinnamon and chocolate really comes out as the beer warms. I’d get far more often if not so expensive."

22oz bottle. clear brown with no head. fudgy dark chocolate nose and nougat. no spices of chili character yet. very warming and kind of lighter bodied than i expected. flavor has lots of roasted notes and chocolate. spices are light with an added warmth in the finish complimenting the high abv.

Nice boxed bomber from Capone’s, from the boxed reserve series. Pours translucent chestnut color with minimal khaki head. Nose is roasty patent/choc malt, nuts, cacao. Tastes malty, nutty, pretty rich, not hoppy but with a patent malt flavor up front, mid-palate cacao, nuts, more peppery heat as it warms, and a complex finish. This one was unique.

Bomber to oversized snifter (shared with the wife; thanks daknole). Looks sold; a dull brownish-black with beige lacing. Smells solid; malt and cocoa. Tastes the same with an average mouthfeel. Not bad.

On tap at Gingerman after our our bar crawl through Brooklyn. Pours a clear ruby tinged brown with a thin to medium sized beige head. Light roast, cocoa. Light sweetness, roast, cocoa. Too sweet, a little bit one dimensional. Sweet warming alcohol into the finish.

Bomber from Country Club Liquors. Nose is light chilies, cocoa, and some nutty roast. Clear brown with a medium beige head. Flavor is a very lightly peppery warmth, chocolate, and chilies. Finishes lightly warm. Decent but not great.

Sample pour. Dark thin pour with a light khaki head. Nose is chocolate and hazelnut. Smooth and lightly sweet, a little caramel. Flavor is sweeter and smooth, caramel and nutty with chocolate all over. Not bad, not my favorite.

Dark brown with minimal tan head. Smells of wet pecan shells with lingering chili notes. Tastes of predominantly pecans and cocoa, chili did not come through how I expected other than I slight warmness that dances on the back of the throat. Overall decent but nothing to rave about

Sampled at the W&C Ballas open house. It poured a dark amber color with a tan head. The aroma was of sweet caramel and toffee with some cherry tobacco notes. The taste was of tobacco, caramel and toffee with a lingering brown bread finish. Well done.
