Bomber. Pours a ruddy black color with a medium light brown head. A big chocolate and light berry nose. The flavor is sweet raspberries, coffee, dark chocolates. Im not getting a ton of Belgian yeast in it. The overall flavor is super sweet berries and light stout flavors. Pretty good.

Black color, raspberry aroma, nice chocolate flavor, and moderate sweetness. Actually pretty good.

Black color, compact head. Mild aroma of roasted malts and cardboard. Roasted malt flavor, rather dry, also more body was expected given the high ABV, and once more the raspberries add nothing g good to black beers, as their tartness doesnt blend with the roasted malts.
Could be an OK beer for somebody, but the result is cacophonous.

August 13th, 2013 - Elysians Omen has rolled down the hills from Adelphi, destined for my glass, where it bubbles and froths above, and below sits murkily, dark and black. The smell is eager to express its raspberry notes, enough so to mask the chocolate, and its sweet enough that I feel as if I am huffing raspberry jam. The flavor is much like a frambozen, but the aftertaste brings in the kick of a stout at the end - deep, rich and malty. A cool blend, and unpredictable, in by prophets standards.

A wild variety of styles combine in this beer. Stout, Belgian, and fruit beer.

Bomber. Roasted malt aroma with light hints of raspberry and Belgian yeast. Pours black with one finger of light brown head with excellent retention and decent lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt flavor and a slight hint of Belgian yeast. Finishes smooth with a bit of raspberry sweetness before the roasted malt takes over again in the end and lingers on the palate. Pretty good, but the other flavors are overwhelmed by the roastiness of the beer.

Appearance: Pours jet black. Medium grey head. Lasting. Aroma is mild yeast, plum, raisin, slight raspberry. Taste: raspberry is prevalent in taste, even though faint in nose. somewhat astringent. Aftertaste has some coffee, ash. Feel: Medium low carbonation. Interesting, but not stellar.

maxwelldeux (4372) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose is roasty with some hints of char and just a little bit of raspberry coming through. Taste is roasty and a bit sweet, but is much fruitier than the nose would suggest. Decent.

NikkTwist (2942) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2015
Draft at Good Dog. Black pour (that showed as a clear dark ruby under bright light) with a slight tight beige head. Without knowing any better, feels like an acidic dark stout. Expected coffee, chocolate, liquorice notes up front when cold. Some mild acetic notes off the top as well. Not until it warms do the dark red raspberry notes kick in - and it makes it feel a bit off. The raspberry flavor is not particularly strong to me but not getting the sense of true actual fruit here. Not terrible - but not the real thing. Wished I liked it better - but not, not, not.

Beer isnt meant to me analyzed. Or tasted or smelled. Or geeked over. I shouldve taken their advise on their own product. Its rotten fake raspberry juice. BLEH!

Bomber from Whole Foods PM. Pours thick and jet black, with very little light through, and 3-finger khaki head. Nose is intense raspberries, cacao, dark malt. Tastes of dark malt, fresh raspberries, cacao, yeast.
