22oz bottle. clear brown with no head. fudgy dark chocolate nose and nougat. no spices of chili character yet. very warming and kind of lighter bodied than i expected. flavor has lots of roasted notes and chocolate. spices are light with an added warmth in the finish complimenting the high abv.

Nice boxed bomber from Capone’s, from the boxed reserve series. Pours translucent chestnut color with minimal khaki head. Nose is roasty patent/choc malt, nuts, cacao. Tastes malty, nutty, pretty rich, not hoppy but with a patent malt flavor up front, mid-palate cacao, nuts, more peppery heat as it warms, and a complex finish. This one was unique. b3shine (8804) - Indiana, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Bomber to oversized snifter (shared with the wife; thanks daknole). Looks sold; a dull brownish-black with beige lacing. Smells solid; malt and cocoa. Tastes the same with an average mouthfeel. Not bad. jeremytoni (3058) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - NOV 12, 2012
From a bottle poured a dark brown color with a small amount of head. Sweet spicy malty flavor with a lingering finish. j12601 (11076) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 21, 2012
On tap at Gingerman after our our bar crawl through Brooklyn. Pours a clear ruby tinged brown with a thin to medium sized beige head. Light roast, cocoa. Light sweetness, roast, cocoa. Too sweet, a little bit one dimensional. Sweet warming alcohol into the finish.

Bomber from Country Club Liquors. Nose is light chilies, cocoa, and some nutty roast. Clear brown with a medium beige head. Flavor is a very lightly peppery warmth, chocolate, and chilies. Finishes lightly warm. Decent but not great. tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Sample pour. Dark thin pour with a light khaki head. Nose is chocolate and hazelnut. Smooth and lightly sweet, a little caramel. Flavor is sweeter and smooth, caramel and nutty with chocolate all over. Not bad, not my favorite. daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Brown pour, tan head. Spices, cocoa, light chiles, roast. Flavor is an odd mix of nuts, spices, cocoa and roast. Meh. camborne (656) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Reddish black. No head no lacing. Nutty aroma. Taste is chocolate and spices. Finish is a good amount of heat. Its ok. Glad I tried it but not going to try it anytime soon Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Pours deep brown with minimal head. Earthy aroma with chocolate notes. Decent mouthfeel, but could use a bit more carbonation. Flavor is chocolate with a hint of chiles (although maybe I’m only identifying the chiles because I read it on the label). Nice nonetheless, though a bit overpriced.
