look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a dark, mahogany highlighted, blackish coloring with a light, frothy, low profile, creamy tan colored head. Nose of roast, cocoa nib, baker's chocolate, and some subtle cream notes. Flavors are roast forward, with a blend of cocoa and baker's chocolate forward, with a bitter undertone and creamy highlights that help to keep the palate balanced. Roast and bitter aftertaste. The body is thin and light, with a dry finish that has a lingering bitterness from the chocolate notes. This is alright, but the characteristics are a little muted throughout for my tastes.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.75

Bomber poured into a Stone RIS tulip glass

A: Brown-black with a latte head

S: Sweet roasted malt, Choclate tones, prunes, and wheat bread crust. Smells good!

T: Nothing like the smell. Harsh dry/chalky taste. Hints of almost burnt/smoky coffee and semi sweet chocolate. The smokiness really takes front and center and ruins it for me. Not very flavorful.

M: Dry, chalky, and thin on the tongue.

O: Not a fan. Really craved a stout so i picked this up because it was 4 bucks. Regret it. Closest thing i have had to a drain pour. Immediately went out and bought Ten Fidy in it's place. Avoid.
