2011 Bomber poured into my CBS Sniffer
A: Jet Black with a brown head that quickly fades.
S: Bourbon and coffee notes, quite epic.
T: So many flavors. First the Bourbon which develops, then caramel which changes over the course of the development and finally a coffee finish.
M: Same as taste, absolutely amazing. It feels like a great bourbon after some time.
O:Every taste is the same, it doesn't fade off. Need more, best beer I’ve ever had. A+

Poured jet black. Small head that lingered the entire way. Tons of coffee on the nose. Smells fresh. Like it was just brewed now. Such an amazing nose. Taste is coffee heavy, but there's the underlining stout. Bourbon at the finish. Mouthfeel is creamy and full, and amazing. Overall, this blows Vanilla away. Just amazing. The coffee is unlike anything I've ever tasted. So full, so fresh. Amazing stout. The barrel aging does add a complexity, but it's the coffee that makes this beer. Just overwhelming. My wife isn't a stout lover at all, but she's a coffee lover, and she loved this beer. Cannot stress enough how much coffee is in this beer. Very awesome, perfect scores for sure. Good job GI!
