Une bire noire avec une mousse paisse. Un nez de grains rtis au chocolat et de houblons herbeux. Une bouche forte en poussire, de moyenne texture. Une finale sur les houblons rsineux et herbeux fort dcevante. (Bomber merci Pat).

Bottle from Legacy Liquor, Vancouver
Black color with generous brown compact head. The aroma is very interesting, tobacco, cigar, some ashes, bread. Good body strength, yet with a lean mouthfeel; the flavor is a bit chocolatey, but unfortunately is too much roasty and ashy, burnt coffee too; the bitterness level is high, and the final slightly salty.
A robust, roasty Imperial Stout.

Belle faon dattirer mon nez et mes lvres. La prsentation nest pas parfaite mais elle est de toute beaut. Les armes sont domins par des grains rtis (avoine?) qui perdent une petite fume. Un mlange dalcool, de cire dabeille, de caramel et de rglisse viennent brouiller mes repres. Les saveurs suivent les parfums. Le caractre rti nest pas ngligeable. De mme que lalcool et les houblons qui ne peuvent fonctionner lun sans les autres. En bouche, je dcouvre un corps moyennement dense. La texture est grasse comme un verre de lait fermier. La finale est une tirade de fume chocolate qui affirme une amertume qui, au fil des gorges, devient de plus en plus chaude. Pas mauvais. Jaime sa fine brutalit mais je naime pas son alcool malhabile.

Bottle. Pours a very thick near black color with a moderate tan pillowy head on it. Nose is darkly roasty with a fair amount of smoke coming through. Taste is roasty and bitter up front, but has a velvety finish that is slightly sweet and chocolatey. Really quite interesting.

Extra bottle in a nice trade - thanks Chris! Dark black pour - not thick though. Tan head. Nice slightly malty nose. Huge chocolate bitterness, hop bitterness and tobacco in the taste. Bitter finish. Nice for a very cold day.

harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 11, 2013
No bottle date, assume this is 2013. Its thick and black, presents with good quilt of tan head. Smells nice and toasty with some graham, some earthy and sharp hops; some coffee and dark hersheys chocolate on the nose. Flavor is roasty and toasty, some nice bready character, some nice prune flavor, a little leather. Thin bodied with low carb and a slightly sticky finish. Its an okay beer for $7.

Bomber from trade with michaelinwa. Niiice aroma roast chocolate smoke. Black pour no head. Taste when cold was great and less so as it warmed. Definite roast and chocolate in taste. Some burnt flavor and some bitter and alcohol. Good brew
