A- Dark as night color with a two finger head that slowly retracted.
S- Malt
T-Hops with a hint of coffee and chocolate. I get a bit of orange and pine with sweetness. Nice bitterness.
M- Just the right balance. Thick with a nice subtle smooth aftertaste. Carbonation level was good.
O- Kind of like if a Porter and IPA had a baby. Not trying to be anything other then a good beer. I understand why they brought this one back

Bomber poured into a pint glass.

A - Yup it's black, with 2 fingers of frothy head. Nice lacing

S - Malty sweetness with some hops in the background

T - Smoky caramel with a nice bitter hop aftertaste

M - Just a little heavy with moderate carbonation. Exactly what I expect from the style

Overall - A nice beer that I would definitely have again. A good representation of this style
