Pours inky black from a bomber bottle into a overlarge snifter glass. no head to speak of. Very dark and opaque liquid. Rich Roasted dark coffee smell with hints of alcohol and hops. Fizzy on the tongue, mildly sweet with a nice hop kick, mellows into a very nice roast black coffee on the finish. body is full and thick. very nice deep rich dark beer with notes of dark chocolate. Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Bomber. Pours thick and dark brown, opaque, with a 2-finger creamy dark mocha-colored head. Aromas of dark chocolate, roasty coffee, cherry, perhaps a touch of plastic, alcohol, and nuts/vanilla. The flavor is sweet chocolate and lightly tart berries, very bitter cocoa and coffee grounds, alcohol, and vanilla. The alcohol is pretty evident as it warms. Low carbonation, full-bodied, creamy, and warming. This is tasty; much bolder and hoppier than B.O.R.I.S., which I enjoy.  Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 8, 2011
Bomber. An opawue black beer, with a small. frothy, almost fully collapsing, brown head. The aroma is heavily malty (roasted grain, molasses, chocolate), lightly hoppy (grapefruit), with a quite strong note of tar and other notes of toffee, vanilla and alcohol, perhaps a hint of solvent/cleanser . The flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Full body, velvety/creamy texture, average/lively carbonation, very long finish with moderate to heavy bitterness, heavily alcoholic. First of all, I preferred the two BORIS version. This is not bad, but with some off notes in the nose, and very, very boozy.However, hugely roasted malts, quite good mouthfeel and appearence, plus a decent balance make this stuff pretty solid (in rather small amounts) without being excellent. One of my least favorite from this nice brewery.
