Bomber served into a 12oz. snifter.
A-Pours a deep midnight black, no accents. One finger dark brown khaki head, head retention is good. Leaves some good lacing as well.
S-Roasted malts, bitter chocolate, espresso, very light notes of vanilla and mint.
T-Very much of the same, not getting any mint in the taste though. Opens very smooth with hints of espresso and bitter chocolate.I get some oatiness in there too. Finishes bitter with some hints of dark fruits and licorice. Leaves a bitter aftertaste.
D-Creamy and smooth. Good level of carbonation, the mouthfeel is a bit thin for this style. There's definitely some heat from the alcohol but it is not overpowering at all.
O-I really enjoyed this one and I will seek it out again. Nothing extremely complex, but it definitely kept me coming back for more.
