Bomber bottle #1478/2009 courtesy of dkachur. Pours deep dark brown with a thin tan head that faded to a thinner topper. The nose is coffee, dark chocolate, light wood and some bourbon. The taste is burnt malt, ashy cocoa, French roast coffee, oaky vanilla and bourbon, but not overpowering bourbon – just the right amount. Medium creamy mouthfeel. Great beer – thanks again for sending this my way Dan! angrypirate06 (1388) - Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2009

Bottle from Immy. My loins ache for you!Ibrew2or3 (8808) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Pours a thick, manly black with a head so big and tall that Peter North would feel insecure. Aroma is bourbony, with chocolate and cocoa that I could just see Immy feeding me. Ooooh... Soooo meaty!!! Flavor is a big bohunk chunk of bourbon wood and whiskey caramel, pouring slowly and full of fire down my throat. Oh so thick and manly on my tongue; I feel a rise in my Levis. Thank you, Imms, for sending this huge bottle of love my way. -smooch-
Bomber pours out mahogany with lasting tan head and some lacing to boot. The aroma is toasty, roasty, caramel, toffee, some oak, a snoot full of hot bourbon and molasses. What a wonderful aroma with the varied roasty notes mixing seamlessly with the solid barrel odors. The taste is much the same with toasted toffee, roasty caramel, creamy caramel and molasses. Near the finish assertive bourbon and oak notes mix in and take this into the after taste. Very well done with a pleasing balance of beer and barrel notes being achieved.

Bomber - dark brown, thin tan head; big bourbon nose with cookies, very sweet, vanilla, sweet roast; texture quite thin with smooth, rich, barrel qualities; graham crackers, mild roast; thinness is my only knock; lots of flavor and barrel notes; very nice overall riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2009
Dark malt and bourbon barrel nose. Dry woody and a little sweet boozey notes. Brown dark sugary notes too. Super dark brown, light brown foam ring. Chocolate - bitter earthy cocoa and bourbon barrel flavors. Woody dry and bourbon notes linger. Dry light booy finish hang around for a while. Thinnish body for style. tjthresh (1875) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - NOV 20, 2009
22 ounce bottle from cdog69. Pours opaque dark brown with a long lasting khaki head. Beautiful beer. The nose is chocolate cover graham crackers, with some vanilla whipped cream, and mild booze. Great flavors of mild bourbon and rich chocolate. Holy crap! This dude is way better than I anticipated. Medium, yet lush body with an ample bourbon finish. This beer is fantastic. hopscotch (11182) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2009

Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor displays a lot of chocolate, bourbon and vanilla with a nutty component as well. Finishes bittersweet and boozy.
