Shared bomber poured to snifters, showing a black/brown hue, with a presentable layer of off white/light tan head foam, and waves & spots of lacing. The nose was roasted & dry, with notes of coffee & baker’s chocolate, a little smoke, and a mildly disconcerting, but fleeting vegetal hint. Medium bodied, with average carbonation, the taste was similar, and included good potency to the roasted & earthy hop bitterness, and dry finish. Nothing off the charts, but decent. charule (2302) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 27, 2015
On tap at Three Aces. Poured black with thin dark tan head. Aroma light resin hop roast. Light carb med bod. Taste is semi bitter dark bitter choc. Awktoberfest (415) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2015
This version strikes me as more back of tongue bitter. Which I don't care for here. Before and after that I like the base and nice dark khaki head. But the first beer from new brewery let's me down a little bit:( but you will have that!

Bomber from the brewery. Strong chocolate and cocoa on the nose. Black with a brown head which sticks around nicely. Really great flavor, nice hoppy stout. Would love to drink this again. No real alcohol flavoring. Mindwarp (323) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 15, 2015
From notes-On tap, pours a typical dark color with a thin tan head. Aroma of burnt malts with a hint of chocolate. Taste followed the nose really good. Had to have 2 of these on the tour, a good Rye Stout.

Bomber. I was hesitant to pick this one up, usually rye is a red flag for me. But boy am I glad I did. Huge chocolate note. Unsweetened baker cocoa. Coffee roast. There is a touch of rye in there but it’s really in the background. More flavor and thickness than you expect from a 7%er. Niko100 (3012) - Chicago, New York, USA - MAR 11, 2015

Bottle is probably 6-7 months old. Pours murky brown/black with tall tan head. Aroma is stale coffee, rose petal, some chocolate. Taste is sweet cocoa nib with a bit of bitter coffee and floral notes as well. Got even more complex as it warmed. Enjoyable. hopscotch (11451) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle... Pours dark brown with a small, creamy, khaki head. The malty, vinous aroma boasts dark chocolate and red wine. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. The flavor is deeply roasted and bitter - 85% cacao chocolate stands out. Lengthy, scorched, burnt-cocoa finish.

This is a very special brew. Starts out like a sweet stout but the hops take a bigger profile after a while. Perfect look, black with a tan head. Very good indeed.
