Canned 4/27. Drinking it in a mini-horizontal with a regular Hunter and a vanilla Hunter.

Dark with some tannish edging, strongest amount of foam and a more persistent lacing than the other two. Smell is strong on a lot of notes - roasty malt and sweet vanilla with bitter coffee on the background. Taste is the same, but the coffee is probably the strongest part of it. Just like the regular, the feel is smooth, velvety, mild oiliness. Well balanced.

Maybe it's the fact that I'm doing it in a horizontal, but I think this is definitely a better beer than it rates on this site.

Shared a 16 oz can with Rob, poured into snifter glass.
A: Pours a dark ruby brown, thin wisps of off white foam float on the surface
S: espresso, sweet chocolate milk, oak, vanilla, boozy heat, some notes of chocolate
M: thick creamy body that coats the tongue with a thin foam
T: creamy chocolate, sweet chocolate milk, oak, chalky, slight boozy as it warms, vanilla, hints of white pepper
O: tasty brew that is complex to the nose and palate, glad I was able to try.

Pours black with a finger and a half of creme-colored head. Nice foamy formation, with a little foam ring left behind. No lacing left behind. Coffee, robust, and smooth roasted and toasted malts, with a hint of lactose form a firm, dark aroma. Flavor profile roasted and toasted malts throughout. Light coffee, and lactose notes flutter throughout. Mouth feel texture is every bit of smooth, creamy, and velvety. It has a medium-thick feel. Overall, a milk stout with presence. The coffee is light, but still present.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16oz can.

Bomber into a snifter appears black in color with an excessive amount of brown head that fills the glass.

Aroma opens up with something that is quite tangy along with some vegetal matter, chocolate and roast. I dont even need to taste this to already know that something unintended is going on in this brew based off the foaming carbonation and now a sour smell.

The taste is as expected based on the initial impressions and not in a good way. Sourness is the leading trait of this and not much remains of a coffee milk stout. I cant drink more than a sip or 2 of this, its bad.

Light in body, excessively carbonated and obviously infected. The milks gone bad Charlie Murphy...

This bottle was infected. It poured like molasses with excessive carbonation. Occasionally large clumps poured out. Based upon seeing other reviews, this seems to be a recurring issue. I wouldn't mind giving it another chance if I had the opportunity.

Bomber. Bottle over a year old and was delicious. Powerful coffee aroma. Strong bitter coffee and chocolate taste without being too bitter or sweet. Silky smooth. First of the Hunter series for me and it did not disappoint.

Looks like their were some infected bottles around. Looks like I was lucky enough to get a non one.
