Black pour with a tight foamy light khaki head. Nice smokey nose with a sweet earthy cocoa bit. Good roasty flavour with a fair dose of roasted black malt and cocoa. Delightful and balanced. Just roasty enough and toasty.

22oz Release #2 bomber pours mahogany with ruby red edges and lasting light tan head that leaves behind some sheet lacing. The aroma pumps out roasted malts, bready malts, a touch of spicy black licorice and soft rauch-y smoked malts. The taste has a pretty rich sweet maltiness as well as roasted malts rolling into some earthiness and smooth smoky rauch malts. Into the finish it stays dark and roasty with subtle smoky rauch malts and a light sense of peat too.

Bomber. Pours root beer brown with a collapsing beige head. Aroma consists of campfire, smoked ham--a little too muted. Taste, thankfully, is much smokier than the aroma let on (give me maxium smoke, please). Along with the smoke, there’s some dark fruit and raisin flavors. Highly carbonated and medium-bodied. A good brew, but not in the ranks of the best smoked beers I’ve had.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a moderate head. Nice smoked nose to this one, but in a subtle and inviting way. Roasted flavors to this with a little bit of malty bitterness. Great flavor.
