This has an initial malt and light caramel flavor and finishes with a dry roasted bitterness. Its character is dominated by the coffee like aroma and taste from the roasted barley. Balanced out with a perfect amount of hops to smooth out the big malt flavor in every pint of this stout.

Jet black pour, but no real traces of head. Bottle didnt even hiss when it was opened. Very dry cocoa flavor. Flat. Bummer. I had high hopes for the namesake...

bomber bottle. pours out dark and opaque. large frothy head..roasted malt aroma and taste with some bitterness of coffee. very thin for a stout..this is more like a porter. flavor is ok but there is something there that just isnt right. lots of carbonation which i dont think should be. worth the try but thats about all.

Purchased a 22 from Bestway. Pours black with an ample beige head. Aroma is sweet, with hints of toasted malts and a coppery flavor. A bit overly fizzy for a stout, also the mouthfeel is a little thin. The flavor is overwhelmingly bittersweet coppery flavor throughout. Very one-diminsional and puny for a beer that "captures the brawny spirit of the workers".

Bomber. Mocha and roast malt nose with a little berry and a little ash. Pitch with a sudsy dark brown head. Watery, ultra-thin body with a hefty dose of roast, faint coffee but no real chocolate, has a little ash, but on the whole, sort of bland and over-inflated with a little sour tang and very minimal hops.

Bomber. Pours deep black with very small beige head. The aroma is lots of cola with some hints of cocoa and raisin. The flavor is raisin with some light roasted barley tones and a touch of milk chocolate. Really isnt much going on here, but its drinkable enough.

Bottle. Poured dark brown with a large frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted chocolate malt aroma. Medium body with a thin dry texture and flat carbonation. Medium balanced toasted sweet malt flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.

From bottle. Big stout nose with roasted grain, barley, chocolate bitterness. Light smoke and acidic tang, hint of molasses and coffee. Dark brown-black body with thin light brown lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts dry with roasted barley, chocolate malt. Sweet notes of chocolate, lactose, and mild acidic tang. Finish is light roasted and burnt bitter with little bit of hops. Roasted bitter after.

Dark black color with a very thin tan head. The aroma was a smoky, roasted malt. The flavor was a smoky, dry coffee. A very easy drinking stout. I will try again when I am back in Ohio.

Poured black with a thin tan head. Smelled of roasted malts, coffee. Flavors of cocoa, coffee, and dark roasted malts. Body and aftertaste were both a little thin.

Pours a dark brown with copper edges and sits black in the glass. A vigorous pour yields a half finger frothy light tan head. Not much color to the head for a stout. Nose is earthy and lightly smoky, some coffee and a bit of sweetness, almost peaty, some burnt wood. Flavor is nice, interesting. Wish it were better made, peaty/smoky, coffee and bakers chocolate and a bit papery. Palate is a bit thin. Has promise but not well executed.
