Bottle from City Beer. Pours black with a thin tan head and a chocolate and coffee aroma. There is a very tasty coffee and treacle flavor with a bit of carbonation and a lot of oak.

Suttree (6297) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Black, with a brown head. First whiff is grape or some other fruity note, then coffee and red wine. Coffee and grape and red wine are the main players in the flavor, as well. I get some milk chocolate, too. Dryish, winey finish. Good stuf. Thanks to Photekut for bringing this one!

Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Solid black, creamy oily brown head. Aroma of molasses, dark fruit, sweet tobacco leaf, leather, vanilla. Taste is awesome, sweet milky smoothness, alcohol in the nose, bitter cocoa, ash, earthy. Thick chewy texture, smooth carbonation. Christ, this is a whale of a beer.

Bomber; 2010 vintage; pours oily black wig thin dark tan head fading quickly to the edges; heavy molasses, licorice, creamy roast and some sweet bourbon; wow, sticky sweet and oily mouthfeel; rich oats, candy malt, chocolate, red wine, charred oak and cookie dough ice cream; definitely on the boozy side and while has a rich mouthfeel, just a little lacking compared to the Haand Odins Tipple; vinous notes with lots of chocolate and roasted malt; super smooth and thin, flat oily mouthfeel; still quite complex compared to most imperial stouts; rich and balanced flavor profile with nothing out of place; incredible that a beer with so much going on drinks so smooth; fun drinking this side by side with a 2-year old Expedition

Updated Rating 4/16/10 (4.3): Bomber; 2009 vintage; pours viscous black with thin, foamy dark brown head fading quickly to the edges; what a badass brew; resinous aromas of bitter chocolate, molasses, dark fruit, red wine, coffee, birch syrupy and vanilla; rich chocolaty flavors with dark fruits, caramel, touch of whiskey spice and coffee; a smooth, rich sipper with almost decadent dessert quality to it; any astringency or unpleasant bitterness is nowhere to be found; love the more subtle barrel notes in this one with the red wine working well against the whiskey; yummy mix of chocolate and red wine; much more complex than I remember from the 2008 vintage; just a lovely beer; wish I had picked more of the 2009; a touch of smoke here would cause the world to explode!

Original Rating 11/27/09 (4.0) Bomber; 2008 vintage; jet black with thin brown head; tons of coffee and sweet chocolate; killer smooth, creamy texture with bone dry finish; sweet fruit, chocolate syrup and dank fruit; very solid across the board but not up to the standards they set with sloth; need to revisit with a fresh bottle of the 2009 batch

Frothy charred expresso/brown head. Aroma is earthy faded hops, deep plum/raisin, licorice, light tobacco, oak, and underlying sweet caramel. Taste follows the aroma with tobacco, raisin/date, licorice, molasses, and a smooth near barley wine finish. Impressive, dessert-like beer.

The taste is vanilla,Oak, molasses and bourbon with a light bitter coffee finish. This is quite a complex Stout, Delicious. Creamy medium/full body. I need to start getting others from this Brewery.

Bottle. An intriguing pour -- black as the darkest night, as youd expect. The head is surprisingly muted, but what there is is just as surprisingly dark and near-black itself. The aroma is pure sexual chocolate, making my mouth water. This drinks with an incredible array of powerful flavors, all mingled together ... licorice, whiskey, baking chocolate, prunes top my list. I have a feeling this will have me feeling warm and cozy in no time. Awesome. (#4071, 2/6/2011)
