Bomber poured into a pint glass.

A - Yup it's black, with 2 fingers of frothy head. Nice lacing

S - Malty sweetness with some hops in the background

T - Smoky caramel with a nice bitter hop aftertaste

M - Just a little heavy with moderate carbonation. Exactly what I expect from the style

Overall - A nice beer that I would definitely have again. A good representation of this style

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Four finger head slowly recedes down a finger leaving behind major lacing. Very dark brown in color. Can't find a single thing wrong with the appearance.

Smell: The aroma gives off tons of malt and hop flavor. Perhaps a hint of coffee in the background. Smells great.

Taste: Very smooth and balanced on the palate. Surprisingly so actually. Very sweet balanced perfectly with a good amount of bitterness. Hops lend a citrus/fruit flavor while the dark roast adds hints of chocolate and coffee in the background. Really, really good.

Mouthfeel: Nice carbonation. Not amazing, but very nice. The body is great. Similar to an IPA but a little bit heavier.

Overall: Very happy with this beer. I definitely will be purchasing more bottles.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a very dark brown, appearing black. Half finger fine light brown head with decent retention and nice lacing. Looks nice. Great pine hop and light toasted malt aroma. Taste starts with nice pine and citrus hops then melds smoothly into a hoppy toasted malt with a hint of chocolate flavor. A fabulous flavor progression. Medium bodied with a touch of creaminess. Very nicely done and delicious.
