Bomber "2011 Classic Release"
Appearance - Pours a viscous black with a large pillowy tan head. At least two fingers. Slow to form but it fades a little too quick. A little bit of lacing.
Aroma - Roasted coffee and tons of chocolate malts. Some hops and alcohol detected as well.
Taste - Lots of different roasted malt flavors. Starts out a little sweet. Hints of dark fruits. Burnt roasted coffee. some booziness and some meld hop bitterness that seems to linger. Thought there would be some more complexity but it ends up being a bit one dimensional.
Mouthfeel - Full bodied. thick, chewy.low caronation. Extended bitter finish. Like I said, the beer isn't all that complex but it does its job. Its solid it packs plenty of flavor and is an easy drink with only a slight booziness for a 10.5% beer.
