3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Someone brought this to a Blind tasting in NY, thank you whoever. This ended up being the first beer of the tasting so I think my rating might have been a bit reserved in preparation for all the Imperial Stouts we were about to consume. Aroma is hoppy, leafy, and only lightly roasty. Taste is again hops-centered (not overly hoppy, that just comes out most) with a regular Imperial Stout hiding somewhere behind that. A lightly slick mouthfeel and a small tan head.

Bomber. Pours blackish brown that admits some light, thin brown head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, citrus and yeast. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Taste starts sweetly, with chocolate, roasty maly and coffee. A touch of sharpness in an otherwise nice espresso pine finish.

Picked up single 22-oz bomber at Johnís Marketplace in Portland, OR and sampled at Badgerbenís Cellar Reduction Night.

Taste is smooth, full bodied, very light carbonatation with flavors of dark roasted malt, molasses, coffee and dark chocolate. Finish is semi-dry with a malt/coffee aftertaste.

thick black pour with fluffy tan head, which takes a few minutes to completly settle to a fine film. Thick spotty lacing. Dry mouthfeel with hints of chocolate and hops before finishing with a pleasent coffee flavor. Very alcoholic as it warms also notable hints of vanilla as it warms
