Bomber at Torst. Watered down imperial stout. A little nauseating tailpipe smel. Some lace. Mostly toasted but also burnt toast taste. Dry finish. Maybe this was better very fresh, but did not age at all, an issue I have with several Westbrook beers.I had to share this out with anyone who would help me not waste a bottle.

Big thanks goes out to funkydelic for sharing this one during one of our random Sunday tastings! Served from bottle into Sweetwater 15th Anniversary snifter. Poured pitch black with a half finger light tan head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, medicinal, spice, earth, roasted malt, and smoke. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, spice, dark chocolate, smoke, charred malt, and roasted malt. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. The smoke aspect going on here was actually quite nice and added a nice touch to the brew. However the charred aspect in the flavor and the medicinal note in the aroma kind of took the appeal out of this one for me slightly. Really wish that these had not been present as this could have been a fairly good brew without them. While this was the case, this one is definitely worth your time trying. You won’t regret it.

22oz bottle with a Date Filled stamp of NOV062012. Pours a viscous black with an inch of dark brown head. Lots of lacing. Aromas of roasted malts, smoke, chocolate and maybe a bit of coffee. The taste is smoke, earth and roasted malts with a bit of a medicinal quality to it. Some chocolate and burnt coffee towards the end. The Abv is pretty well hidden. Smokey chocolate finish. The medicinal flavor is my only real gripe about this beer. Slick mouthfeel. Overall, its decent but if I never had it again I wouldn't be heartbroken.

bottled 11/6/12

a - poured a one finger thick creamy tan head into a tulip glass that settled into a thin ring. the body was dark black.
s - chocolate, some coffee with a slight alcohol burn.
t - roasted coffee, chocolate, some dark fruits, alcohol burn.
m - kind of flat and thin.
o - i had high hopes for this but the carbonation level really took away from a promising beer. the heat went well with the beer.
