Bottle shared by RussianDragon. Thanks man.

Black body with a small beige collar. Bittersweet chocolates, coffee, roast, light char. Smooth on the palate. Nice flavor, delivering good balance. Easy to drink. Solid.

Bomber $ 9.99 at Vintage Estates, Boardman, OH
Undated bottle at 40 degrees into imperial pint glass
Aroma of coffee, coffee, and coffee
Head small (1.5 cm), light brown, creamy, slowly diminishing to 2 mm ring.
Lacing good – partial rings and stalactites of tiny bubbles
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor of coffee; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium to full, creamy, lively carbonation

Tastes like a light coffee – no gastric burn after drinking it. Smooth and creamy like a porter, good aroma and appearance. At 6.2 % the alcohol isn’t very high, but still cannot be smelled or tasted.
