Bomber, 2018 vintage. Rich roasted malt aroma with notes of dark chocolate, vanilla, earthy rye, caramel, oak and whiskey. Pours dark brown with a thin mocha brown head that has good retention and excellent lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt, caramel, dark chocolate and vanilla as well as a full body and viscous, smooth mouthfeel. Finishes smooth and decadent with earthy rye, oak and whiskey flavors as well as a hint of booze. Luxurious and absolutely wonderful, excellent brew.

22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Nose brings out earthy rye, whiskey barrels, and medium roasted malt. Flavour is decadent, with whiskey barrels, earthy rye, chocolate fudge, and roasted malt. Sludgy, earthy, but very pleasant flavours. Good stuff.

Draft at Growler Guys. The pour is nearly black with a persistent ring of creamy brown head. Huge aroma is rich with chocolate and coconut, very sweet and decadent with nice compliment from the barrel treatment. Reminds me a lot of an Almond Joy and the older batches of Full Sail’s BA Black Gold. Big flavors of chocolate, bourbon barrel, vanilla, and roast. More Almond Joy characteristics. This is an amazing beer full of wonderful flavors. Very glad to have had this.

From tap at Toronado, San Francisco. Aroma is dark chocolate, Bourbon, caramel, milk chocolate, wood, vanilla, plenty of coffee, light booze, bourbon chocolate dessert. Flavour is medium sweet with some roasty bitterness and some boozy notes in the finish. Body is full. Rich and tasty, big one.
