bomber thanks to Taylor @ beer study. into a snifter.

Pours a dark black with a nice beige head. The smell is very intense and roasty. chocolate notes too. The taste is BIG and smooth and creamy. There is a bit of smoke there too. Big chocolate and roasty notes and the finish is actually a bit bitter. Oats are definitely prevalent as well. ABV definitely hits you as you get through the glass. Very full bodied with a perfect amount of carbonation.

Overall thoroughly impressed by this one. Liked it a lot.
