Bomber in trade from Josh. Black beer with light brown head (less than 1 finger). Dark roast in the nose, and incredibly smooth dark flavor with some vanilla. Finish is long and sweet without being cloying. Nice brew. jcr (2763) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Bomber. Black body with some brown highlights in the light. Very little head, but what’s there is tan. The aroma is rich and sweet with hints of roasted malts. Chocolate, cream, vanilla and lactic acid. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body and creamy, velvety texture with moderate carbonation which washes very little of the sweet milk and roasty flavor away. Yet the sweet notes are kept in check with a nice, hoppy finish. Excellent sweet stout, both in balance and richness. deyholla (12191) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Bottle. Poured black with a thin light brown head. Aroma full of dark roasted notes with a vanilla undertone. Flavor began dark but sweet chocolate and a creamy flavor become present. Creamy on the mouth. cexshun (99) - Portage, Indiana, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Opaque black. Aggressive pour results in wisps of tan head. Sugary aroma of tobacco, yeast and hops. Roasted character with toffee, chocolate and coffee. The sweet lactose is very upfront. Velvet mouth feel coats very well. I’m not really into sweet stouts. While I love the creamier mouth feel, the sweetness doesn’t quite sit well with me. walrussell (192) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Way too much for me! But it was interesting and creamy. Chocolate dark fruit coffee, sweet and thick. too sweet and thick

Bomber from Archer Liquors. Pours quite black with a 2-finger tan head. It has a sweetish aroma of darkly toasted malt. Medum body with creamy carbonation that bites just a bit. Flavor is toasted malt with dark fruits and some chocolate. Dark fruit aspect matches the "Baltic" descriptor. Finishes a bit burnt, slightly bitter and rather balanced by the dark fruit. It’s a really flavorful stout, and not excessively sweet. Really a lot going on in this one. Highly recommended. Sonicdescent (388) - Donora, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2009
My first beer from the much vaunted Three Floyds!
Pours a coffee black with a thin tan head that turns into a crown with spotting.
Smells absolutely fantastic. Chocolate, oats, sweet malt, cream.
Tastes milky (not just a clever name), light chocolate malt, light sweetness in the finish.
Mouth is med/thick with low/med carbonation. Good.
Easily my favorite of this style so far. Wish I could get FFF in this area as they live up to the hype.

Pours pitch black with a fully receding tan head. Notes of light coffee, chocolate mousse, sweet cream, caramel, and pepper. Full bodied with lively carbonation. Narnad (1521) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2009
Pretty neat looking bottle graphics. Very dark black pour with a thick tan head and fine carbonation. Chocolate is pretty dominate in this aroma with a dark roasted coffee note hiding in there, burnt notes and an overall sweet profile. A strong chocolate flavor starts off the tasting, moves into a very unique sweet bite (lactose?), a coffee/burnt malt middle with a light caramel ending. Brew has a moderate density, is very smooth and rich with feeling. Overall a good beer and one that really hit the spot well. GranvilleTim (1857) - Granville, Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Black pour with a dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and lactose sweetness. Nice flavor of roasted malt and sweetness from the lactose. Nice mouthfeel and low carbonation. Leaves a nice roasted malt aftertaste with a touch os sweetness. Nice lacing on the glass.
