One of St. louis best local imperial stouts. Thick and creamy, roasted flavors but not smokey, and a good alcoholic bite. Great price. gregwilsonstl (2453) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 23, 2013

Sampled on tap at the 2nd annual Urban Chestnut Wolpertinger party in a dimple mug. It poured an opaque, nearly black colour with fluffy beige foam and lace. True-to-style stout aromas and flavors: malty, bready, toasty, roasty, fruity, caramelly, low hops. Elevated alcohol, warming but not harsh. Medium-heavy body, lower than average carbonation, lingering tart and toasty aftertaste. Good, not great. alexsdad06 (10268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2013

Bomber from Secret Santa jmagnus - thanks, dude! Wow, drinks pretty light for 10%. Hefty body, with LOTS of carbonation. Chocolate, mild tartness, and hints of anise in the nose. Rich and chocolatey flavors, with healthy amounts of roasted malts, and maintaining the anise/tartness intersection. Solid RIS. coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Bomber. Pours black with a medium-sized tan head. Aroma and flavor of highly roasted, almost bitter malt, touches of coffee, licorice, chocolate. A little bit of alcohol bite. Medium to thick body. Best thing I’ve had from this brewer. ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2012
22oz bottle courtesy of jaminjohnson. thanks, ben! pours a dark, cola-brown capped by a thick, fizzy, khaki head that leaves light rings of lace. aroma is damn nice with notes of dark chocolate, cake batter, roasted coffee, and toffee backed by herbal hops, smoke, and light anise. flavor is delicious with big, roasted malts, wheat toast, dark chocolate, and espresso backed by caramel candies, licorice, and piney, herbal hops. palate is medium bodied with heavy carbonation and an intense, lingering roasted finish. overall, a damn nice imperial stout.

Bomber from Wind and Cheese in Clayton. Pours a dark brown... Fairly thick, but maybe a little thin for style. Head is fairly large and fizzy at first, but it dies to a nice lacing in the sides of the glass and a quarter inch of dense tan foam. Aromas are a little bit faint... but foreshadow roasty malt with a decent amount of chocolate to it and a little smokey peat. First sip reveals that this is a very astringent take on the style... Lots of bitter dark malt hits heavy right as beer meets palate. A little bit of a cola like mid palate development yields back to a bitter dark malt finish. This is an adequate Imperial Stout, but it misses being a complete and full complex take on the style.
