Bomber pours a near black with ruby highlights at the edges of the glass. The disconcertingly effervescent head with very large bubbles settles down within a couple of minutes, but not attractive and not a pleasant pour.
Aroma of roasted dark malts and dark chocolate, with some smoky wooden barrel in the background. A warm and robust aroma with good depth. The taste is more single dimensional and surprisingly astringent, with a bitterness that some may not enjoy as much. Mouthfeel is much thinner than I expected.
Purchased in North Carolina and a brewery I'm glad to have supported, but not a beer I’d choose over many other American Stouts.
