Pours dark black with a lasting dark brown lacing. Virtually no bourbon on the front or alcohol @ 13%. Very smooth and balanced. Done right wlajwl (7075) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - AUG 14, 2017
Aroma is raisins/dark fruit and dark malts. The flavor is dark fruit/berries, dark malts and a mix of tart, acidity, mild sweetness and warming alcohol in the finish.ricke49 (83) - La Pine, Oregon, USA - AUG 13, 2017

Aroma is fruitcake/fruit/raspberries, wheat, dark malts and vinous notes. The flavor is fruitcake, raspberries, dark malts, vinous notes and a very long and tart/alcoholic finish. Was expecting this to be pretty good and realize I underestimated it, wow this was awesome.
An imperial stout without the extreme flavors or presence of alcohol. Smooth for a 13%-er. Much smoother say, than The Abyss (no knock,as I’m an Abyss fan). If sipped (and to do otherwise would be...weird) this one provides its own 1.5 hour session of 22 oz. of near-heaven. Malty, minimal hop presence. Lowe1983 (1634) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2017
Pours a black color with a brown head. Aroma is rye, chocolate, roasted malts, and coffee. Flavor had some nuttiness with the same flavors from the aroma. slight alcohol warning on the finish. Andrew196 (1996) - Katy, Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2017
Dark, mahogany edges, beige head, thin. Aroma is licorice, wood, coffee, cocoa, alcohol, and a mysterious trace of banana. Full bodied and complex, a little boozy but very well done at this abv. Chocolate, toffee, wood, cinnamon, lacto, raisin, a general smokiness...smooth, robust sweetness. Well done boys.

2017 bomber, $9.49 from Wine Warehouse. Almost feels wrong to be enjoying a beer today, but I have to take my mind off of the insanity that’s happening right here in my city. Pours thick and black with half inch of dark brown head. Aroma is slightly boozy chocolate, a little smoked peat, cookie, vanilla. Flavor is sweet chocolate - reminds me of a chocolate chip cookie, bourbon, vanilla, caramel, a little nuttiness. tapefuzz (826) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 12, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2017 22oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is booze, oak, caramel, and sweet malt. Taste is caramel, chocolate, molasses, pecans, brown sugar, some coffee, and a touch of dark fruit. Roasty finish with a LOT of booze on the tongue. Some rye lingers. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Slick, smooth mouthfeel. lamas (1657) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 9, 2017
Draft at Pizzeria Paradiso, Hyattsville, MD location on 07/28/17. Served in a cute, little snifter. Arrived at the table a jet-black with a thick and creamy mocha head. The aroma featured plenty of char, anise, dark chocolate, coffee, caramel, dark fruits, vanilla, roasted grains, and an ample booziness. Went down thick and smooth. No surprises taste-wise - dark chocolate cake, coffee, caramel, dark fruits, roasted grains, creamy vanilla, anise, and a sizable booziness were all quite prominent. One of the richest, booziest stouts I’ve had in recent memory. zoucrew102 (2107) - - AUG 9, 2017
Bomber, 5.0 2017 release. Rich roasted malt aroma with notes of bitter chocolate, rye, vanilla pecan nuttiness and bourbon. Pours inky, deep brown colored with a thin light brown head that very little retention and no lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt and bitter chocolate flavors with notes of rye malt and a nice, full body and viscous mouthfeel. Finishes extremely smooth with notes of bourbon and vanilla with nutty pecan flavors coating the palate at the very end. Absolutely delightful! jeremytoni (3083) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2017
From a bottle poured a thick dark brown color with a small amount of head. Syrupy sweet malty flavor with a lingering aftertaste.
