Bomber from Whole Foods in Folsom, CA. Pours very dark brown with a slight dark tan head. Aroma is chocolate and yeast. Med + body. Flavor is dark chocolate, smooth burnt malt and some hints of yeast. Trying to get some fruit ester, but the chocolate is pretty strong. There’s a bit of heat hitting the back of my throat, but not much. Pretty solid and tasty stuff.
