Bomber poured into pint glass
Pours a jet black with some brightness on the edges. A ebony quick fading head leaves nothing behind. Smell is full of dark chocolate and bourbon. Hints of sweet vanilla comes through as it warms. Taste is bitter with dark chocolate and roasted coffee. Some sweetness from plums and sugar are present but dominated with the bitterness. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky. Overall this is impressive. Very good tasting and smooth. I think it can use a little more aging though to mellow the bourbon.

A: Pours black with a one finger creamy tan head. Sheets of lace with each sip.
S: Big and roasty with tons of dark chocolate, powdery cocoa and some faint barrel. Barrel notes emerge more as it warms.
T: Tons of velvety dark chocolate, dark berry notes and dark roasted malt. Some syrupy espresso as well. Finishes with a bare touch of char. Smooth as hell. Really well done.
Serving type: on-tap
