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.

Thanks to Brent for this one!

A: Pours a dark brown with a small tan head on top made up of rather large bubbles. This reduces to a ring around the top with some thin and sticky lacing on top.

S: Plenty of roasted malt, slightly charred, with a good bit of chocolate and a little coffee.

T: Light roasted malt with a surprising amount of pine in the middle. There is a nice amount of chocolate through out.

M: Medium bodied, but seemed a little thin with medium carbonation.

O: Another beer from OH that I enjoyed, there seems to be a pattern here. Thought that the roasted/charred malt worked well with the chocolate and pine. Would have liked it to be a bit bigger.
