This one has been pushed towards the back of the fridge (where it's been for about half a year) so I thought I would bust it out and review for my one year anniversary of being on beer advocate. Into a pint glass it pours pitch black with a small dark tan head. The head fades to almost nothing but it slightly there. No lacing to be found. The smell right off is really chocolatey followed by some roasted malts. There is also a small hint of coffee buried underneath as well. For the taste it's mainly chocolate, roasted malts, and coffee followed by alcohol. There is another underlying taste I can't quiet put my finger on, maybe it's the oats. A nice thick creamy mouthfeel. A bit higher ABV on this one which usually isn't noticeable to me but on this one it is though it still isn't a problem at least it's nice on this cold night. And I could do another bomber afterward if I had one. Overall it's really good. My first beer from Hoppin Frog and one of my favorite styles. I'll probably pick another bomber of this up sometime soon.
