Bomber into Pint glass
Appearance- medium brown with a dark red tinge, nice fairly large light tan head
Aroma- Really getting the molasas/brown sugar, some caramel and chocolate malts as well, bright floral hops over top with a slight resiny pine dankness
Flavor- A slihgly burnt caramel, chocolate malt, strong but not overbearing bitterness, pine
Mouthfeel- A little hefty for the style, and abv but ok, slight alcohol warmth, moderate carb
Overall- Very nice, some of the malts and brownsugar/molasess could be more pronounced from one another, also not sure how fresh this is. Not sure I'd get it again but I am glad I tried it.

3.79/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Bottle: a big solid 650mL brown bottle with an okay semi-macro label.
Appearance: pours out a dark brown with highlights visible against the light. A tan head pops on the top with good retention and lacing.
Aroma: heavy caramel and molasses dominate here with a touch of balancing earthen hops.
Taste: plenty of milk chocolate with some roast coffee behind. Some brown sugar and molasses add to the ensemble.
Aftertaste: a touch more brown sugar on the finish, but very little bitterness from the hops to meter it out.
Mouth feel: medium in body with a lower- to- moderate carbonation. Quite smooth in texture, but I think it could have done with a tad more carbonation.
Overall: a good combination of rough coffee and smooth chocolate, with some sharp molasses and brown sugar. The only thing holding this brew back for me by far is the price of AU$13 a bottle. A bit steep...
