3.6
luttonm (6854) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2017
Bottle in Seattle. Moderately thick brown pour with a nice dark tan foam. Nose is chocolate and soy, fairly sweet. Sticky edged body with more liquid chocolate and some cloyingly sweet malt flavors. Nice bitter cocoa notes towards the finish. Sort of average overall, but I like the bitterness and relatively light body. A little too much red fruit sweetness, or cola.

3.9
dmac (6501) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2017
Bomber from Spirits Jackson. Poured a super dark midnight black with a frothy/bubbly beige head. Aroma/flavor is burnt and syrupy. Loads of burnt malts, syrupy chocolate, burnt marshmallow, vanilla extract. Medium mouthfeel, stingy carbonation, heat on the back end. Really nice but could use a bit more body.

3.7
troopie (2458) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - DEC 2, 2017
Draught. Basically everything the description says it is. Black body with thin brown head. Aroma is malt, coffee, chocolate and vanilla. Full bodied without alcohol burn. Lasting chocolate finish

3.3
Ernest (7862) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2017
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is opaque black (flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately to heavily malty (chocolate syrup, caramel, roasted grain/nuts), lightly hoppy (flowers, apricot), with notes of vanilla, banana peel, and alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Full body, syrupy/velvety texture, soft/lively carbonation, heavily alcoholic.

Mostly typical sugar-and-chocolate bomb rendition that's all too common nowadays. Seems to be emulating Bell's Expedition. Nice that they achieved first-pour opacity, that's cool. Fatiguingly sweet, so it's difficult to drink much of it, but the aroma is nice enough. Good for this brewery.

3.2
Ratman197 (15468) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2017
On tap at Hops and Pie poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lingering ring of brown foam. Aromas of bakers cocoa, coffee, dried fruit and light roastiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bakers cocoa, light dried fruit and light coffee with a smooth dry lingering dried fruit finish.

3.7
DocLock (11110) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Bomber. Poured hazy dark brown with tan head. Nose was roasty dark malt, vanilla, dark choc. Dense on the palate, roasty dark malt, cacao, vanilla, smooth, well hidden alcohol.

4.7
blackmetal (249) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 6, 2016
Oh wow, they knocked this one out of the park. Beautiful blend of roast, bourbon, coffee and vanilla. Perfect density and an aftertaste that makees me want more. Please produce greater quantitiy as $20-$30 CDN per bottle is still too steep for this gem.

3.6
hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2016
22oz bottle. Poured a black color with a tan head. Roast, vanilla, chocolate, and some smoke / tobacco.

Black with a few but giant tan bubbles.
Aroma is mostly Bourbon. Taste is Bourbon, roast, chocolate and a slight tar. Soft carbonation, full body. Very nice.
