Bomber poured into snifter. Pours a gorgeous deep opaque black with an average light brown head. Aroma is of vanilla, black chocolate, moka, liquorice, and maybe some dried fruits. Taste is pretty sweet and there’s some roast in there too which confers a slightly acidic aftertaste. Mouthfeel is wonderful. So slick, it’s really pleasant. The low carbonation is perfectly fine with me. Overall: one of the best imperial stouts I’ve ever tasted! The balance and quantity of different perceivable aromas is just astounding. Very, very well done. hopmelt (197) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2013 Pours almost black, slight khaki head, good lacing. Aroma is molasses, roast malt, very slight chocolate and coffee, bit of alcohol astringency. Taste is molasses, roast malt, good amount of alcohol, ever so slight coffee and milk chocolate. Mouth feel is full, medium carbonation, lot of alcohol heat and astringency, fairly dry finish. Overall good, not as complex as I would like, a lot of alcohol presence. JorisPPattyn (10113) - BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2013
Rust-beige head, very soon gone over very carbonated brown-edged black beer. Tobacco nose initially, as from cigartobacco/leaf, bit of thick chocolate wafers, as well as wet cardboard, and lastly some weird, not really waned aroma (I’d rather not name), that comes with every new sniff, immediately to vanish again - fleeting but repeating. Tobacco, black & milkchocolate, bitter finish with moccha and more black chocolate. Dark green leaves (aucuba), wood. Quite carbonated; slick, velvety MF, warming alcoholheat. I’d preferred garlic as the extra aroma, even as a vampire. TheRealMGD (555) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Bomber from TW, cellared for 6 months. Deep brown-black pour with a persistent tan head leaving heavy lace. Nose is chocolate, booze and a hint of licorice. Heavy body and moderate, fine carbonationn with a slick mouth feel. Chocolate, cherries, licorice, mocha and vanilla. While the start and middle are sweet and dessert-like, the finish dries out a bit with some charcoal, oak and soy entering. Balanced a bit on the sweet side for me, but still very good. Compares favorably to Abyss, Parabola and Dark Lord. jcartamdg (3539) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2013
Pours jet black with a thin mocha head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roast and slight licorice. Taste is dark chocolate, roast and licorice. Medium body. Nothing exciting, just an average imply stout.

I’m becoming more and more impressed with these guys. This one pours a dark brown color with a brown head. The aroma is toasty with some dry dark chocolate and no hops to speak of. The flavor is rich yet dry with chocolate and smoke. Nice rich chocolaty finish. I’ll pick up a bottle next time I see one. Very nice stuff. ajnepple (7338) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2013
22 oz bottle from Liquor Kabinet. Black with a light brown head. The aroma is dark chocolate, roasted malts, light wood and light smoke. Similar flavor, fairly sweet and creamy, hides the alcohol. Medium body with a soft smooth feel. Good, but slightly underwhelming and little too sweet for me. Plovmand (8683) - Grindsted, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2013
Pours mega jet black with a creamy dense dark beige head. The aroma is hard roasted and light smoked with chocolate and dark fruits. The flavor is thick chocolate hard roasted with a sweet vanilla and oaky hint. Sweet roasted finish. Light smoked. I love it!
