Bottle... Pours mostly clear and black with a small, creamy, lightly-tanned head. The bouquet is a mouth-watering mélange of brownie brittle, espresso and vanilla. Full-bodied and creamy with busy carbonation. The flavor presents jet black mocha – espresso roast coffee and 93% cacao dark chocolate – joined by an acrid, carbonic note of black patent malt. Bitter, charred finish. Bottle courtesy of BBB63! deekyn (1459) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 13, 2014

Bomber from Binny’s. Pours near black with tan head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, and tons of roasted malts. Flavor roast, coffee, chocolate, and some bitterness. Nice big and dry stout. Really liked this. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 9, 2014
22 oz. bottle. Batch #80. It pours a very muddy dark brown color with a lasting brown head. The aroma is very chocolaty with some peanuts and dirty roasted malt. Not a whole lot of coffee surprisingly. The flavor is more coffee forward with intense roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate. Nice level of acidity and dirty roasted malt in the finish. Creamy mouthfeel and body. The acidity of the coffee and roasted/dark chocolate bitterness in the finish makes this one for me. Nice stuff. anthony850 (473) - Andover, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2014

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a dark black with a finger of dark brown head. Aroma of Roasty coffee with some dark chocolate and toffee. Taste is very bitter. Coffee and dark chocolate. Full bodied with a thick texture. Soft carbonation and a super long finish. Overall, awesome. Another great, home run of a beer. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2014

This is like drinking a cup of black coffee with the grounds still in it. Really bitter and has a roasted coffee flavor. Smells like coffee and pours dark brown almost black.

Bomber. Pours a deep (almost jet) blackish-brown, opaque and thick, head looks like it should be on top of an espresso, okay retention, not much lacing. Nose is a lotta coffee, baking chocolate, leather, smells chewy if that makes any sense. Mouth is full bodied and roasty, a lot of sootiness up front, kinda clinging to the thickness of the dark roast, stick to your tongue like red-eye gravy (hmm... I just had an idea...), more of the chocolate from the nose, some raisins, kinda drier than I expected but a bitter-sweetness at the finish. A nice stout, and I don’t even hate my boss.
