4.81/5  rDev +20.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Bottle poured in a Goose Island Glass.

Appearance: black, but light still shines through the glass. There's also a thin brownish head present with a thin lacing that breaks up when tilting the glass.

The Aroma is chocolatey with a slight hop presence. Citrusy and sweet at the same time.

I can feel the "warmth" of the alcohol, but I can't taste it. I can taste the sweetness from the sugary malt, and the citrusy hoppy flavor combined with a slight smoked after taste resulting in a well balanced beer.

I wouldn't consider it containing a dense mouthfeel, but I also wouldn't consider it having a thin mouthfeel. It's in between. It also contains slight carbonation, as expected due to the 10% ABV.

Overall I consider this a great beer. One of my favorites! It's too bad that this is a one time release. I can definitely taste the hoppyness flavor cutting through, yet it's not really bitter; It's more on the citrusy side. It's is a very well balanced beer containing a complex taste. I would definitely buy this again.

3.56/5  rDev -10.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

22oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 7.99. 04/2013 release. Served in a Sweetwater snifter.

Pours cola brown with about one finger of sandy head. The head fades to a ring and leaves large sheets of nice lacing.

Smells of oranges, pine and sweet roasty malts.

Orange leads the flavors, followed by pine, grapefruit rind, roast, chocolate, pepper and a decent nip of alcohol. Much less booze presence than expected for 10% abv. All in all it's quite nice.

Medium heavy body, bordering on chewy with fairly light carbonation. Citrus and roast in the bittersweet finish.

A slightly different black ale with the orange flavor predominant and the chocolatey malts much more subtle. Dangerously smooth and easy drinking for the alcohol content. I couldn't really taste it but I sure did feel the booze by the time I finished the bomber by myself.
