3.38/5 rDev -14%
Weirdly sharp mouthfeel. I thought it was just the carbonation, but there is something unusually acidic for such a dark roasted brew.
Some malty sweetness. Tannic with chocolate milk, old coffee, perfume. Dry, winey finish. Decent foam in the tall glass. From the 22 oz bottle.

650ml bomber poured into tulip 31/7/14
A black with a deep cola edge, two fingers of dark mocha foam sits around for half the glass but leaves zero lace
S coco powder, chocolate milk, fennel, root beer, nutmeg, faint smoke, raisins, a strange combo but it works
T more of the same with more earthy notes and the roasts darker, much like the nose but stronger
M not as thick as the color would let you believe but still far from thin, bubbles cream it up, a little grit left behind, coco and ash linger
O respectable beer and I'd believe it was under 5%, no problems taking down the bomber but not the richest stout I've had recently
worth a try but another one of those 10$ bombers that I doubt I'd buy again based on price alone
