Bomber bottled 02/25/13 poured into a snifter glass. L: Pours black with a small amount of dark brown head and no lacing. S: Smell is of bourbon and chocolate. Faint hints of vanilla. Reminds me of the smell of chocolate fudge being cooked. T: Taste is heavy on the bourbon, followed by big hits of chocolate. Not getting much vanilla or chili pepper. Although there is some warming on the very end. Hard to tell if from the chili or the 11%abv. F: medium carbonation, very enjoyable. O: a very good BA stout. Tons of bourbon and chocolate here. Not much vanilla or chili present but that doesn't bother me at all. Will have to grab another.

Pours black with a thin brown head. Smells of bourbon, milk chocolate, vanilla and some spice. Tastes prominently of bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, roast malt and syrup. Dark chocolate and dark malt aftertaste. Medium heavy body and medium carbonation.

Poured Luchador En Fuego into a snifter.

A - Pours black as midnight with a touch of ruby highlights and quarter finger of mocha head.

S - On first sniff it smells like light whiskey. On further investigation I'm getting light roasted malts, caramel, toffee and vanilla.

T - Good Lord!... Father I have sinned. Wow, just kidding. On initial sip smooth light whiskey, vanilla, toffee, roasted malts, and sweet chocolate. Mid palate I'm getting more roasted malts, whiskey, vanilla and toffee. Finally, on the aftertaste some char from the barrel and added sweetness from the chocolate.

M - Smooth medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

O - A superb beer to enjoy on this Superbowl Sunday.

Pours a deep brown (aroaches black if you don't hold it to the light) producing slightly more than a finger of finely bubbled, shortlived, mocha head that leaves no appreciable lacing. Aroma is spicy, toast & roast dark malts, dark chocolate syrup, chili pepper, vanilla, booze/bourbon & smoke. Taste is fronted by booze/bourbon in a background of dark roast/burnt malts, semi-sweet dark cocoa, chili pepper, spice & smoke that balance by mid-sip & rides into the the finish where the booze/bourbon once again becomes dominant & is joined by toffee, prune & other dark fruits, spice & pepper all of which are represented in the boozy & slightly burnt aftertaste. Alcohol is evident in terms of warmth, bitterness & spice. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with low carbonation, chewy with a crawling spicy bite that can be felt on the sides & back of the tongue as well as in the throat.
