22 oz bomber pours a rich black color with a large cap of light brown, fine-bubbled head. Excellent retention and lacing...a fine looking beer here.

Nose is smoky chocolate with a little bit of licorice and plums.

More smoke comes out in the flavor, but it is balanced nicely by the sweet, chocolaty malt. The barrel character is subtle, but adds a nice dimension as it warms. Woody, roasty flavors are more pronounced as it warms. Still plenty of leafy hops to give it a dry, bitter finish. This is a beer that has a lot going on, but manages a semblance of harmony despite a multitude of flavors. Pretty good, though I think another year or two in the cellar would improve it.

Overall: This beer is delicious yet too much smoked malt to my liking (smoked bacon), the barrel adds some depth yet not as intense as I would prefer. The mouthfeel is a little light yet I didn't have a problem killing the bomber. All in all this brew is recommended.

This beer style is labeled wrong. It's an American Imperial Stout.
