Thank you Mathieu87 + PriorL for the effort! Bomber sampled @ Samson en Geert Bierproef Avond. Lighter shade of black going to brown, creamy small mocha head. Nose is pleasant big artificial mocha, hazlenut, chocolate, marzipan, coffee, sugar, mocha. Taste is painfully chemical vanilla, marzipan, artificial coffee, chemical cheap chocolate, insanely artificial, the more you drink it the more chemical it becomes, real plastic chocolate & it quickly starts turning artificial, cheap, chemical, painfully artificial & the same counts for the body. Starts out pleasantly but quickly turns ugly.

And so it came to pass that six like minded people met on the 20th day of November in the year of 2016: those six people shared twenty five fine beers. This is one of those twenty five. Bomber. Weak tanned head on a dark brown body, aroma had chocolate and nut esters, add some smooth coffee and you have the taste too. Really slick Porter, loved it.

minutemat (4628) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2016
Bottle @ Rich’s 7k tasting. Pours very dark, thin tan head. Pretty intense aroma of nutella & crispy praline. In fact one of the best tasting beers of this year I reckon. Taste continues along a similar theme, lots of smooth chocolate, peanut butter and moderate coffee with nutella creeping back in on the finish. Wonderful beer.

Heavy aroma of malts, caramel, vanilla, peanut butter, chocolate, roasted malts and coffee.

Opaque black beer with a slight/medium brown/dark brown head.

Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, vanilla, peanut butter and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.

This beer is intense, complex and balanced. So many added ingredients, creating an extremely rich flavour together. The coffee is the least noticeable of these, but creates the perfect balance at the end. The palate could have been thicker, but otherwise this is an amazing beer; especially for its abv.

It pours dark brown with a beige color head. The aroma is just awesome: sweet nuttiness like peanut butter and a slight hint of coffee. Flavour is nutty again, ground coffee, coffee beans, little earthy, little astringency. Unluckily the mouthfeel is not that good: quite watery and a thin body. I would prefer a full one with creamy texture. What a pity! I would have given this a way better rating, if only...

mice (841) - FINLAND - NOV 11, 2016
Bottle from Saveur-Biere. Clear, dark brown beer with quite small and quickly disappearing head. Strong aroma is delicious. It has lots of chocolate, peanut butter, almond and hazelnut. Some roasted aroma also. Reminds me of finnish company Fazer’s "Wiener nougat". Taste is, however, not too sweet. It has chocolate, some hints of roasted coffee, peanuts and vanilla. Medium body, a bit dry at the end, which makes everything in good balance. Might be a bit watery/too light body, but overall wonderful beer!
