22oz bomber pours with a deep dark body that supports a mocha colored head of foam. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, earthy dark chocolate, some chocolate brownie and then a light amount of molasses. The taste delivers rich malt deepened dark roasted malts mixed with dark chocolate goodness and then getting into some vanilla bean and spicy black strap molasses. Wow! This is dynamite dark roasted goodness. Great stuff. BuckeyeBoy (8860) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 16, 2013
22oz bottle pours out dark brown almost black topped with a small brown head. Aroma of booze, sweet milk chocolate, ans roast malts. Taste much as the aroma with the chocolate, leading the way, a nice bitter end. radagast83 (8624) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2013
