3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber Bottle. As advertised, a mix of stout and pale ale characteristics. Pours a nice, stoutlike creamy head. Odor is stoutish, too, but with the fruity characteristic of a pale ale. Taste predominates with stout notes; roasty and smoky. But the pale ale side contributes fruity esters, and some sherry and cherry notes. Its description would suggest a porter, but it's not quite one of those. Perhaps needs to be a style of its own.
12oz bottle. Pours murky brown with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malt with some spice and a little chocolate. Taste is lightly chocolate, malt, toffee, and bread. Light bitter, burnt malt aftertaste. Medium body. Average carbonation. Mouthfeel is a tad watery. TATE (407) - Lubec, Maine, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle. Pours a murky dark brown with a thin tan head. Odd smell like glue. The flavor is odd as well, some chocolate notes and burnt maltiness. Emeister84 (2664) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Aromas of coffee, strawberry preserves, some caramel, slight roast. Hazy dark brown with ruby highlights, and a lasting, rocky beige head. Malty, a little sweet, dominant caramel and bread, somewhat toasty, some toffee. Medium-full bodied, sticky. Tonkun (1306) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2015

Pretty tasty, exactly what I expected for a black and tan. Nut brown color with nice thick head. Chocolate notes and pale malts play off each other with a hop presence. warhawk91 (302) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Bomber. Pour is very dark brown with a light tan head, laces well. Smell is brown sugar, with light coffee notes. Taste is sweet with caramel and a touch of coffee and chocolate, faint note if hops. Very smooth and drinkable, doesn't blow me away, but nothing off with it either.
