2014 Release
11% ABV (not 10.6%)
Bomber poured into a wine glass

A: Poured black, not deep, almost purple highlights coming through. Dark brown head, that fizzed away after a few seconds.

S: In the bottle chocolate. After the pour it lightened up and could smell raisins and chocolate.

T: The alcohol burn was there, it was pleasant. Also sweet undertones, again raisins, blackberries maybe.

M: Very smooth and (just barely) a full body beer. Feels like my mouth gets coated, then it evaporates and leaves a tingling on the tongue.

D: Great beer. It will fill you up, and get you drunk. Characteristics I’d happily succumb to time and time again.
