4.6/5 rDev +6.5%
Enjoyed at a bottle share.
Pours a deep black with about an inch of thick, dark brown head.
The aroma is rich with chocolate, honey, dark fruit, and a little bourbon.
Very tasty, great chocolate, dark fruit, vanilla, the bourbon is present but not hot and plays really nicely with the chocolate.
The feel was super smooth with a pretty full body and light carbonation that finished smooth coating the mouth leaving a nice reminder of the awesome beer just sipped.
Overall a fantastic stout. Defiantly worth seeking out.

Pours jet black with no penetrable light. A creamy half inch mocha colored head fades into a rich top leaving a thick layer of lace in its wake.
Aromas in this seem a little tight and restrained. Hints of bourbon, cardboard, cocoa, dark chocolate, burnt caramel, honey, black fruits, light vanilla, toasted coconut and wood.
Wow the taste on the other hand is phenomenal. Rich layers of cocoa, fudge and dark chocolate, Nice dollop of honey. Black fruit, burnt caramel, earthy hops, light bourbon, toasted oak and vanilla. Finish is short and semi sweet. A hint of leather and asphalt. Hot on the finish in the back of the throat and chest. Mouth is a bit thin and medium bodied. However this complex beast isn't hurt too badly by it. Years to go on this one.

After sampling the van pappy dark lord just prior to trying this beer, it was perhaps to be expected that this would be something of a let down.
Sampled at the epic finewinemike event.
The beer pours a dark brown color, with good head retention and lacing. The nose is impressive in this beer, albeit a bit boozy. Still, I otherwise pick up considerable chocolate, prunes and vanilla, that in combination is quite attrative. Given the aroma profile, I have to say I was all the more disappoitned by what I got on the palate. The beer was a thin and fairly dry, and seemed to be dominated by licorice and light coffee. Also, I picked up some noticeable heat on the finish, which further detracted from the flavor profile. Mouthfeel otherwise was medium bodied at most, with an adequate at best finish.
Maybe I would have liked this beer more if I had tried it at the outset of the tasting, but the fact remains that this was probably the least impressive beer I sampled at the tasting. Along with CBS and the 2010 Kate the Great, this was one of the few beers that disappointed at this tasting event.

Bomber poured into a tulip
Thanks to thagr81us for the bottle--- hope you are doing better
A-- Poured black. Just slight bits of red tint at the top of the beer. One finger light brown head that quickly fell to film and then disappeared. Just a small bit of lacking.
S-- Good nose. Bourbon, oak, Carmel, Vanilla, Chocolate and some earthy hops. Really nice staying power of the nose. Maybe best part of this beer.
T-- Bourbon, Vanilla, Chocolate and more earthy hops. Good taste to this.
M-- Slick and oily. Body is a bit thin but quite good. Not as good as taste and nose are. Spot on carbonation and feel to this. Really felt the barrel added a lot to the base beer.
O-- Not as good as BCS rare but a good substitute. Well hidden alcohol and a lot of flavor to this. Only real failing is the body, as a bit thin I thought. Still a good BA beer and if can not get BCS Rare a very good substitute with the PVW barrel.
